These strings are incredible! For a crunchy bluesy sound with distortion, or a light jazzy sound with no pedals, these strings have ASTOUNDING bell-like tones!
i use these for gigging, i have tried other 10s and i love these they work great. great tone,very vintage. the price is great last longer then the other EBs i have. the other guy who had problems with breakage, should have a tech look at his guitar maybe there is a problem with your setup?? i have had no problems with these at all, would suggest these to any and all who want a vintage sound for a good price.
i had always been a fan of the regular ernie ball nickel round wound strings then i tried these and they feel and sound so much better. these have a more vintage tone and sound way better in the higher frets when you bend. way better than any other brand and better that other ernie ball strings too. strings have not broken and they last a long time without loosing their quality tone.
If your high e string is breaking so consistently, I can guarantee that the problem is your bridge or nut on your guitar. Go have your guitar set up and diagnosed by a professional. These strings are great and will give you a very musical and balanced tone. Nickel-wrapped strings can be a little metallic and brittle, especially playing through bright amps.
First, these strings are great, they are very versatile, you can play anything with them. I play metal in my personal time, and Jazz in my school band, and they sound wonderful. But before you walk out of the store, pick up an extra High E string or another set of these strings, no matter how slowly you raise the pitch, this one string is VERY VERY likely to break. I have in fact gone through three strings before I even got to a high D. Other than that, these are great.
