I'd used GHS, D'Addario, and Dean Markley, and they'd all left me a little wanting. Finally, I figured I might as well try something new. I was attracted to these strings basically because of the guages, which I find to be perfect for comfort and playability, but then when I put them on my guitar I was blown away. I didn't know that strings can sustain like these did! They're not as trebly-sharp as D'Addarios, and not as dull sounding as GHS, but rather a happy medium that just sounds amazing. I've had this set on for about two months now, and they are still going strong. I mostly play in standard, but I'll occasionally drop D, and these strings have handled them both marvellously. Just out of curiosity, I even tuned to C# for some good ol' Sabbath, and the Balls took it beautifully. These are my new favorite strings.

I agree with the other guy, the hybrids provide a bright, clear tone, and sound very good, but they do not live for very long. I broke my E string on the first day I put them on and they started to rust after about two weeks. You can fix this with some string cleaner to prevent build up of the junk. I recommend the Dean Markley Blue Steels of the same gauge, they sound as good if not better and because of their cryogenic treatment, they last FOREVER! If EB made a treated or coated string that lasted longer than they would be unstoppable but as it stands these are good strings at a great price but you can definitely do better.

Good strings for the price. The strings have a decent lifespan and give a good tone. Have had some issues with the high E unwinding at the ball end, but for the price they can't be beat.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2222 Nickel Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've tried several types of Ernie Ball strings over the past few years, and I've settled on these as my favorite. I play mainly hard rock/metal, and with these I feel like I get the perfect balance of heaviness and playability. While not quite as chunky sounding as the Power Slinky, I'm still able to get nice, crisp heavy tones out of the low strings, while still having that nice "bendability" on the higher strings. They really brighten up a guitar, and they stay in tune very well. I rarely break these strings, and they can take a pretty good beating, even from thicker picks. My only complaint is how quickly the strings begin to corrode. My hands tend to sweat when I'm playing, and with every day use, I notice signs of corrosion on the high strings within the first three weeks, although this does happen with most brands anyway. Overall, a high quality product that delivers great performance.

                As a professional musician and songwriter, I have enjoyed using the super slinky hybrids over a decade on my Fender strat! I beautiful tone, they are great for recording, and are reliable and long lasting. The are super slinky and bend well, good for harmonics and are thicker on the top and skinny on the bottom. Awesome in all kinds of weather and performance gig conditions! A perfect fit for the beginner or experienced guitarist, they are very reasonably priced and the three pack is perfect for ordering online. I usually change out these strings once every month or two! Highly recommend!

                  I use these stings on all my electric guitars. They get the job done. Tone is name of the game and you won't get a better tone unless you play heavier strings

                  I just opened these strings today and before I even got them tuned the .09 gauge broke thats not the one that was giving me trouble but for some reason it broke all the same I'll just stick with DR and GHS from now on. I'm not using Ernie Ball anything anymore.
