Great sound, broken in feel. I loved the fact that they didn't have that initial slinky metallic pop sound you get when puttin on new strings. They only needed minor stretching to get going.
Amazing quality. Nothing short of great.
A little pricey. I could have had 2 Ghs boomers(my favorite) for the price of this. I wish they would come out with more custom sets like 10-42, 10-38, etc.

    These strings stay in tune after alot of abuse on my tremolo bar! Which I was not expecting when I first put them on my PRS Custom 24. I absolutely LOVE them. Not to mention great tone!

      Comments about EVH Premium Electric Strings 9-42:

      I haven't played or had these long enough to comment on the longevity of the strings. They have a very good tone when played heavy or with high gain, great harmonics from the strings. I am not however totally pleased with them when playing clean. I am not exactly sure what I am hearing, but something just doesn't jive when playing totally clean. Not a horrible sound, but in my opinion, an unwanted sound. If you always play heavy, and love harmonics, these are the strings for you.

          What I like is reliability. Some strings come dead out of the pak but not these.They are good quality. You can tell the second you pull them outta the pak and put them on. Stretch 'em a few times and your good to go. They stay in tune and just work right. No Worries. :)

              Good Tone, poor appeal

              Comments about EVH Premium Electric Strings 9-42:

              These are probably the best feeling strings I've ever used, however if you're into cosmetics, these strings may not suit you, though they break in sweet as butter, the physical appearance diminishes like crazy, totally killing any aesthetics, definitely great for recording if you like playing things fast and want a crunchy tone, they've got some slink to them, so you can bend pretty far, but I've since switched to dr lite-n-tires, same crunch, same speed, tighter feel, and longer aesthetics, and break in just as well, only downside is that the tite feel kills bending opportunity unless you've got a tremolo. I still give these strings 5 stars for an unbeatable tone and vast range of styles they can be used with, once I got tired of them, they got put on an old acoustic and it played great country tunes like a set of martins would, so, they're pretty much ready for anything.

              Great strings

              By Dennis Teti

              from USA

              Comments about EVH Premium Electric Strings 9-42:

              I'm a big fan of
              I'm a big fan of Van Halen. When I finally bought a guitar with a locking bridge I wanted to try different strings to see what works and what doesn't.

              I've tried a number of brands and so far these strings can withstand the most heavy of whammy bar usage. I can perpetually dump the bar and they always stay in tune. I really haven't had the same experience with any other string company yet.

              I played the .9-.42 set. I recommend these strings if you like doing a lot of squealing dive bomb harmonics or rather just any kind of crazy dive bombing that you'll hear Eddie doing on every record.

              Buy n' try.
