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.

    Used super slinky's but kept breaking strings. Regular Slinky's have the best strength without loosing the tone.

      I love the Slinkys. They provide the same tone every time, and I know I can depend on them during a 4 hour gig.

          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.

          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!!!!
