I just bought a few sets of these the other day and up until then I bought "strings were just strings" and I was wrong! I normally purchase earnie ball 10-46s and these were on sale so I decided to give them a try and they sound and feel great. I strung up my ltd f-400 with them and felt like I was never going to set it down again. They are awesome distorted or clean and they have sort of a rough texture on the wound strings that gives me better accuracy on the fret board. I am pretty sure I am going to go with these from now on. If you want some killer strings buy these and be amazed!

    They feel a bit different at first, but once you're past that its a great string set, Ive switched from the XL sets to these on all my guitars, you should give them a try!!

    Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    Best strings ever IMO. Brightest tone. Doesn't lose tone as it ages. No nano-coating to peel off. I've been using the same set for a year on my LP.
    Yes, the wound strings are rougher than nickel. Doesn't bother me.
    Yes, steel is harder than nickel (commonly used for fretwire) so if you do constant bends and grind the string into the frets, they will wear out. My solution for this is to take your guitar in and have it refretted with stainless steel frets.

    ALL STRINGS SHOULD BE MADE OUT OF PURE STEEL!!

    Super Bright and Expressive!

    By Dan Stollings

    from Phoenix, AZ

    Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    I play guitar in a black metal band in Phoenix, AZ. We try to go for a more "professional" sound--not lo-fi and muffled like you hear so commonly. These strings really help bring out note definition in tremolo picking sections of our songs as well as the lead guitar parts. Sonically, Pro Steels aren't much different from Dean Markley Blue Steel Strings, but they last longer and maintain tonality better than Blue Steel strings, which makes them worth the $1 more they cost per pack. I've owned about 4 packs overall, and I've never had any string failures. I play for about 6 hours a week at band practice, and I find that they start losing life in the tone after about 4 months. That's pretty good considering I am really rough on my strings.

      Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I'e been using these strings as long as they've been around! They have a bright sound and stay newer-sounding longer than nickel-wound strings. They are the best strings for triggering MIDI pickups.

      D'Addarrio EPS510 ProSteels - Worst of the Worst

      By Carl Stover

      from WV

      Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I've been a musician for 45 years. I got these strings to prepare for recording, but these are the worst strings I've ever installed. Terrible tinny tone which rings disgusting harmonic frequencies. The previous 6 month old set of D'Addarrio EXL110-3D sound 10x better and still have great tone. The wound strings in this miserable set have a horrible rough texture which make it impossible to slide your finger on the string. I think I'll take sandpaper to my old strings from now on to get more life out of them. If you want beautiful sounding strings (but only if your guitar is set up for tone), get the D'Addarrio EXL110-3D instead of these bummers. Special alloys here are apparently tin and plastic in this reviewed set.

      Honest opinion

      By eric

      from cary il

      Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      heres my honest opinion. These aren't bad strings at all. I had to try them because i have actives and everyone says that about the combination of steel strings and active pups. But They didnt feel as smooth to me actually. i had a hard time trying to slide up and down the neck and playing riffs with lots of sliding between chords and such. THEY ARE NOT BAD. just not my certain taste.

      Silky Smooth

      By Soundchasm

      from Dayton, OH

      Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      I've been using D'Addario nickle wound strings for 40 years w/o exception, so I have no experience with other brands. But, I really like these strings. They are brighter, and I believe they are smoother than the nickle wound from a tactile standpoint. In fact, they made my rosewood boards seem a little more like my fine ebony board on an old axe. I would use them to brighten up a too soft-sounding instrument. They have also proven to have good life, considering that I assumed the extra brightness would fade after a few hours. It didn't seem to fade quickly at all. In fact, I purposely left a set on far after the strings became fret-dented and the good feel and bright nature remained. They're not as finger friendly as Elixirs, but they sound better. I didn't experience the 4 hour tone fade as with the nickle strings. I just wish there was a 10-52 set of these available for lower tunings. I have four guitars these strings are ideal for - two humbuckers and two single coils. The other guitars get Elixir and nickle 10-52. I'll order half a dozen of these strings this time around.

      Great Strings

      By JumpyMcHop

      from Santa Barbara, CA

      Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      Got these last night and after an hour or two of jamming, I have to say that I love these strings. They have a grate tone: a nice high sparkle without being obnoxious and twangy and the lows have a good amount of punch. My one complaint is that I didn't get 11's and these have a little too much tension, but I guess that's my fault, not the string's.

      cheap way to get more scream!

      By David-NC7q1

      from Spring Hill

      Comments about D'Addario EPS510 ProSteels Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      Im a guitarist who doesn't like much change in equipment, and i've played D'Addario strings ever since i learned to restring my guitars, and i know theres nothing better out there, and so these ProSteels are the only change ive ever had. They boosted the gain and volume of my tone and also feel no different from the regular Nickle wound XL's. If you want your guitar to go from singing to screaming, id choose these strings!
