These are the only strings I will use. I have tried various brands of strings and most cost way more and still dont put out the quality of sound that these strings put out! These strings are also great for all different types of music.

I put these on my Epiphone Sheraton, and I found that the strings were too vibraty, specially with the open notes. I play a lot of Smiths/Johnny marr and Oasis, and saw that JM and Noel gallagher use this string gauge. So I bought them, put them on, and I found that the strings I regular use, the .11 gauge super slinkies, were able to recreate their sound more accurately.

      Switched from Super Slinky's to a little beefier string with these. Makes a good bit of difference. (Playing a souped-up Mexican Fender Plus Top.) 8-)

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      I have been a guitar player since the 70s and have always used these strings, I keep them on my Fenders, Les Pauls, and Epiphones and have no intention of changing brands! These will stay in tune GREAT for you, are bendable, and will withstand corrosion very well(if you maintain them with a string lube such as FastFret)I have played outdoor shows in the rain, snow, and all sorts of weather with these and found they will hold up great with a simple wipe off after playing and a coating of FastFret, and NOTHING is better in their price range! I get string companies sending me test strings all the time, and many are great, but much more expensive, so trust me and at least try a few sets, i bet you will always use them...

      I have used the extra slinkies before but I just didn't like them. I bought these simply because I needed some for an emergency. After I put them on I was in love and these are the only electric guitar strings I will ever use!

      Near Perfect

      from San Bernardino, CA

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      I bought these strings to replace the rusted ones on an old guitar. They're very durable, easy on the fingers, and they sound great. These are definitely worth it for the price. If you need a new set of strings, these are the ones.

      Great strings

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      Honestly, I've only used the factory strings(9 gauge), and these over the last couple months since I bought my guitar. I moved up to the 10s and I love them. Great output and I can bend them unmercifully.
