I keep coming back to these string... I've tried various other brands, DR, Dunlop, Dean Markley, etc., but I keep coming back to these. I've been using them for about 3 years now and have yet to break a single string. That's the main issue I have with every other string that I've tried. Within 1 to 2 weeks of re-stringing, with every other brand I've tried, I end up breaking at least one string and sometimes multiples. Sound is good and the tone lasts as long as any other that I've tried.

They sound nice when you first get them on. However, when I used these strings they started to break and didn't even last for more than two months. The only reason I got rid of my old ones was because they were just too worn, but they never broke. Do not buy these strings unless you intend on paying for another set soon.

    I love the value and consistent quality of Ernie Ball strings using 10s on my les paul studio and 9s on my charvel san dimas. The only other ones I liked were the Gibson vintage reissue 10s those are great strings.

                  These strings have such a great tone. The thicker three strings sound so much better than many other strings I've used, and the thinnest three strings are still easy to bend for players who like to solo. I would highly recommend!

                    To all Ernie Ball users. As an advanced guitar player and I play mostly Jacksons, I have used the Ernie Ball and Ernie Ball Cobalts. I will say that, if you have any Floyd Rose adjustable bridges, I recommend you go no higher than a '10', if you attempt the '11', they will pull the bridge up. I primarily use either 52-10 or 46-10. If you do not have the adjustable bridges, you can use the '11'. These strings are great on Metal, Rock, Hardcore, Blues, Jazz, etc. However, everyone has their own prefs. Ernie's are THE way to go on metal or any other genre of metal that is out there and yes, they are great for about anything. You don't have to have special strings, if you rather pull on the strings and not use a tremolo, it would be recommended to use Slinky's. I highly recommend, after each time you practice or perform, simply use a string cleaner to keep your strings fresh, I would not recommend the treated strings, it doesn't last too long, that will only make the strings rust quicker. I hope this helps.
