Gary Moore’s Dean Markley Electric Guitar Strings

Gary seemed to have used Dean Markley guitar strings most often. Based on his own statement, he used either a .010 set (Dean Markley 2504B – this set is heavier on top than a standard set) or a .009 set (Dean Markley 2508).

I string my guitars with Dean Markleys—sometimes .010-.052, and sometimes a .009-.048 set. Honestly, I only hear the difference in gauge on the bottom strings, not the top.

As a note, on the song Still Got the Blues (Still Got the Blues, 1991), Gary used a Dean Markley LTHB Electric set, gauges 10, 13, 17, 30w,
42w, 52w.
