I use to use GHS Boomers, then a good friend suggested I try EB's...that was about 3-4 years ago. Since then, nothing but EB is used on my guitars, and if you are an active musician then you know how important reliable strings are. there is nothing worse than breaking a string during gig and I have yet to break an Ernie Ball string. I run .010's on all my electrics and EB 2151 hybrids on my acoustics. Ernie Ball strings can really take a beating. I play hard and fast most of the time so the strings really get abused. Pitch bends, dive bombs or just really slamming them they have always held tone and have never let me down...they won't let you down either.

I bought these because I had heard the rave reviews and I have only ever played D'Addario strings. So I figured I'd at least try them out to see if I like them. They are way too easy to play. Granted, they are excellent strings and you can tell they are quality, but they are just too dainty. If you are used to heavier strings and harder bends, try something else. I'm used to a throatier sound with more bass and mids. These are too trebly for my preference. This does not mean they are bad strings. I suggest for those who like SRV and are into blues to stay away. Bends with Ernie Ball are effortless--almost too effortless. I felt like I wasn't even playing anything. I am glad I tried them however. Now I know what I prefer.

My standard choice

By Fredrik Knoph

from Bergen

When I started playing guitar, I bought these strings since Clapton used them. However, after trying after trying other strings, these are the ones I always come back to.

BEST STRINGS!!!

By Lisa Davis

from Colorado Springs, Colorado

I have been playing guitar for about 2 and a half years, My brother taught me how to play guitar and told me to use Ernie Ball. Later I tried another type a strings and I couldn't even play my guitar the sound was so different. If your debating getting new strings, get EB!!!!

The best

By Steve

from Sammamish, WA

Have used Ernie Ball strings for over a decade and have never been let down by the quality. Tried several varieties but ultimately settled on Regular Slinkys. Perfect balance of being bendable and easy on the fingers yet sturdy enough not to break in the middle of gigs!

Excellent strings, and one hell of a deal in the combo pack. 'Nuff said.

Awesome Strings!

By Josiah Ragland

from Charlottesville, Virginia

I love Ernie Ball strings. They have great tonal quality and give u a nice solid sound. I mean seriously, why else would Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy use these strings?

Best Electric Strings On the Market

By George Graziano

from Bend, Oregon

Personally, I love Ernie Ball strings. They feel fantastic, and are tonally exactly what I look for in a string. The new packaging has been a great boost to the longevity of the strings, and referring to the review below - these strings are great for blues. The person obviously doesnt know what Slinky means. Slinky doesnt mean treble. Clapton, Mayer, Buddy Guy all use them for blues and dont seem to have fits. Ernie Ball strings are awesome IMO.

Good price, quick shipment

By Walt

from Kingsland, GA

For my teenage son who goes thru a lot of stings, this is a good deal on a good set(s) of strings. Had the order in about 4 business days. Good telephone service, too. I'd buy them again.
