I just bought one, I'm anxious to tune and try it. This is my first 12 string.

The ones that YOU find that work best for YOU depending on what YOU play... and after YOU'VE tried various sets.

Can you detect a trend?

Welcome to the gang.

Brands are mostly the same.  But, since it's your first 12'er I'd suggest lights or extra lights.  This is very much personal, but I'd also suggest you start with phosphur bronze.  In a 12er, the 80/20's sound a bit brash, at least to me.
