  • I love these strings

    As reviewed by spikormikor13 on 9/20/2006

    The Ernie Ball 'Rock N Roll' classic super slinky strings are amazing, I love them. Like the other Super Slinky's, these strings are thin but not to the point where they'll break after a week. In fact, these strings are quite durable. I can't believe I wasted my money on Elixirs. The Ernie Balls' cost half the price and last double the time. These strings are cheap, durable, and sound awesome. Ernie Ball is the way to go.

  • These are my strings.

    As reviewed by Scott C. on 4/13/2010

    After playing electric for 22 years, (funk, blues, thrash, punk rock, experimental) I have decided it's Ernie Ball Pure Nickel Classic RockN'Roll or nothing at all on my guitar, and I can't stand it if a local dealer doesn't have them on the rack. I've tried so many times to branch out or re-visit other reputable strings, but I find I am too completely spoiled by the Ernie Ball Classic Rock'n'Roll pure nickel magic to feel anything but unsatisfied when playing with anything else. No other string provides me with the variety of colors and tones these strings readily produce. The difference is not only noticeable, it is dramatic, such that I honestly cannot get many of "my sounds" using any other string. Comparing these strings to any others is like comparing a box of 64 crayons to a pack of six gray ones. If they ever stopped making these, I would seriously be distraught. In terms of tone, it really is the closest thing to having a set of magic strings on your guitar. That is my humble opinion.

  • Best Strings I've ever used

    As reviewed by Ricky on 6/2/2008

    These strings will produce so many tones from rock to jazz and even some metal! For me, I play about four and a half hours a day, and they last about three months with out braking. I personally think these are the best strings ever made! If you need some new strings and aren't sure what to get, or you're just looking to get something different, i would definitely recommend these!
