Advanced player, tried these out twice. Makes you play sloppier because the strings are all over the place, they're not "slinky" they're floppy. I like the .008 Blue Steels instead. Tried them out once been addicted to them since. They're easy on the tension, feel like silk and stay that way for a really long time. Hardly ever need lubricating. Try that instead. These ernies are yuck.
of couse as a begginer we all experiance some finger pain, but with it super light gauge these extra thin sting greatly cut down the pain. and not to metion the tone! the tone is just amazing perfect for that blues tone and every thing else. but don't think it just for begginer these are perfect for every one i mean come on it ernie ball, waht else can i say?
Well worth the five pesos. I'm not a master on guitar but I know what a guitar should sound like.I bought a PRS guitar and the strings it came with the guitar did not sound good enough for me. So, I went to Guitar Center and bought 2 sets of strings,one set of DR Extra 10 to 46 gauge. I was not happy with the sound. I put them in the garbage.Put on the other set this time it was D'Addario XL flat wound the low E was 52 gauge. They sound realy good but they are too hard to press so, it was hard on my finguers.So, went back to guitar center and bought two more sets. One D'Addario EXL 120 this one has gauges .009 to .042. And a set of Ernie Ball never heard of that one before but it was recomended by the sells guy.And I put these on first they are .08 to .38 in gauge they are thin. And what do you know.These strings sounds extremely nice and easy to press.Now, I'm a happy man.
I've played with many different brands and none of them can hold a candle to these ones. not only do they sound absolutly amazing they outlast other strings too, and for being .8 gauge I thought that was amazing. I hope you feel the same way aobut these strings as I do. rock on...
These strings were the best strings I ever used and will be the only ones I use now. These strings are perfect for blues, soloing, bending, and about everything else. I even tried out finger tapping on these strings and it sounded great and it was very comfortable so these strings really are great for everything. And if you have a Les Paul, these strings are perfect for them. Buy these strings and you will not be sorry.
i been playin for about five years, but ive been through em all, nothing compares to the extra slinky set, i put these on all my guitars, and on one certain guitar the strings haven't been changed since last year, i play every day, constantly, and these bad boys take all the abuse, bending multiple steps up, drop tuning, dive bombs, dry or humid, and the still stay in perfect tune, plus they still sing like canaries after all this time, i've compared lotsa strings to extra slinky, they dont even belong in the same sentence, get yourself about a dozen of these, and you will never put a different brand of strings on your guitar ever again.
After having played with Dean Markleys, D'Addario's, and other Ernie Ball products, I've come to the conclusion that these are the best strings I've ever played. I would like to review these in more detail, but all I can think of is one word- amazing. I will never play with any other strings, and I hope, for your sake, that you won't either.
These strings are great! They offer a fantastic tone and the most playability out of all the strings I've tried. I've played on D'Addarios, Fenders, and Ernie Ball's Regular Slinkies, but these strings are so thin, they make bending and soloing an absolute breeze. Lead and Rhythm playing alike is made effortless by these strings, and they last a very long time without breaking or needing to be changed.
