I've been playing guitar for about a year and the best I had ever used were Boomers, and the only others I had used were Fender and Gibson Brite wires. I just bought these the other day and they changed my guitars sound completly. Before I had Boomers and they sounded ok, but i wanted something better that had a crisper sound and these were it. With distortion they have alot of crunch and on clean they sound really glassy, and they bend very easily. Bottom line, these are THE BEST!

I had these put on my electric not to long ago and they really don't suit my tastes well, at first they caused a lot of buzz, they were new so it was expected but after continued use the buzzing persisted so I raised my bridge,it got a little better. They don't stay on tune for to long on mine, and I have brand new tuning machines on it, their not the best, but their ok, power slinkys are better suited to my taste.

    I use these strings on both my Epiphone Les Paul Special II Limited Edition and my Global acoustic guitar. Great tone, they have lasted quite a while without losing quality or breaking. My go-to strings for now, until I start exploring a wider rande of string types.

    Best Strings Out There!!

    By 

    from California USA

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Custom Gauge Electric Guitar Strings:

    I have been playing guitar for over 15 years. I have been through probably every brand of strings that are out there. These strings seem to be the very best strings I have ever tuned up to use. This paticular set works so great with Floating Bridges and tremolo bridges. Also works great with fixed bridges and basicly all guitars. I highly recmnd them to any player looking for a perfect set of strings.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Custom Gauge Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've used earnie ball super slinkys on my Clapton Strat since I bought it new in 88'. Great tone, long lasting and great for those slow bends. I use GHS Boomers on my 88 american standard strat and tele as I find them louder and brighter.

    Loat faith in these strings, used to be so much better. ( 2 snapped)

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Custom Gauge Electric Guitar Strings:

    I bought a 3 pack and 2 of the 3 .9 gauge strings snapped. I had my guitar tuned at drop c#. Pretty low had plenty of slack. No longer buying these strings. Sticking with 10, 11s. Though I have never had a heavy bottom or not even slink break before.

    These strings SOUND GREAT!

    By 

    from Fullerton, CA

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Custom Gauge Electric Guitar Strings:

    I have always bought these strings for the last few years, but I didn't realize how much i loved this strings until I used the Regular Slinkys. People complain that these strings have too much tension, but I think that the tension helps to provide a more solid, less vibrating tone to really make the notes sound off clean. I play a lot of Johnny Marr and Oasis, and JM and NG use the regular slinkies, but I used the .11 and in my opinion sound better than the regular slinkies. I am going to stick with these for good, because going higher gets too dark, and lower means too vibraty. The golden mean of Ernie Ball Strings.
