  • Ernie Ball Beefy Slinky

    As reviewed by Zach on 11/27/2006

    These strings have got to be the best strings ever for heavy metal. I tune these to Drop B tuning (low to high B-F#-B-E-G#-C#), and they hold perfect tension. They last a super long time (like more than two months for me), and they retain their tone for the entire time. I use Ernie Ball strings for all of my guitars (these on my Schecter, Super Slinky on my Strat, and Earthwood Lights on my Acoustic), and I probably always will.

  • Some of the Best Strings Out There

    As reviewed by C. Hardy of Predatory Mindset on 9/21/2006

    I love very thing about these strings except for the plain 3rd string. I tune these down to B-standard and they play beautifully on my BC Rich Warlock. Over all one of my favorite sets of strings!

  • c'mon guys....

    As reviewed by Nathaniel Gaffney on 3/19/2013

    These are downright amazing strings, great for the metal player such as myself. But I must say something about some of the reviews on here. I couldn't help but shake my head and laugh when I read that some people bought them and said it made their fingers hurt. Seriously? These are strings for tuning down and whatnot, not standard, definitely not standard. Please read the product description before you buy, this will make you not sound like you don't know anything about guitar.
