They have a nice tone. They stay tight and full. I used them to play in a metalcore band in Drop C and D standard. They stay pretty tight, but not too tight. In my opinion, they have a better tone than skinny top heavy bottoms for rhythm in those tunings because they're not all loose n floppy unless u like that. They're not made to play in standard tuning. It says "optimal for detuning" for a reason. So, don't buy them for that unless u feel like it. I played rhythm and some leads in that band. No problems and felt good in either tuning. They sounded full throughout til they got too old like any other string lol. My only complaint was that the G string felt too tight compared to B and E plain strings, so the set felt unbalanced, and it was a little hard to get intonate. But, good for low tuned guitars.

Dull, lifeless, cheap strings

By Cody

from DFW TX

I've tried them all folks. Got these in a jam because they were out of my usual D'Addario XLs. Threw them on my 72 Tele Deluxe with a Duncan JB in the bridge, tuned to drop C as per usual, & they sounded like pure garbage. No life in them whatsoever. Dull, muddy, no punch, no harmonics. I never knew there was such a thing as low-output strings, but that's exactly what these are. I actually had to turn up the gain & treble to try livening & brightening my tone back up but I just couldn't (& shouldn't have to) compensate for the terrible sounding strings. Never again Ernie Ball, NEVER again.

GREAT STRINGS

By AGIM SINA

from Bristol, CT

The low end strings, 30, 42, 54 are perfect. The tension in Drop C and D Standard with a little bit of low action is just amazing. My only problem with this pack and it's not that big of a deal. That 22p on the G string. I just switched from a Rotosound pack of strings (10 13 17 30 42 54). It feels so tight. For players that like that ability to bend notes, I would use this set for Drop C especially cause my guitar has a 24.75 scale length. (If you're going to use this set in Drop C, set your action low. On a 25.5, I would use this for Drop B. The tone when you first put them on is great. Although it doesn't last long, they're a great choice of strings to use when you feel like you need to change your strings.

c'mon guys....

By Nathaniel Gaffney

from Spartanburg, SC

These are downright amazing strings, great for the metal player such as myself. But I must say something about some of the reviews on here. I couldn't help but shake my head and laugh when I read that some people bought them and said it made their fingers hurt. Seriously? These are strings for tuning down and whatnot, not standard, definitely not standard. Please read the product description before you buy, this will make you not sound like you don't know anything about guitar.

Decent Strings

By Nouhak Inthisane

from San Diego, CA

These strings sounds great in Drop C tuning. They stay in tune fairly well. The only thing I don't like about these strings in the 6th string. Overall, their great strings.

Ernie Ball Strings

By mister mustard

from Boston, MA

I actually don't really play the drop z tuning metalcore stuff that a lot of these reviewers do, but i was looking for a chunkier tone and more "stability" in the bottom strings. i guess you could say i was inspired by srv to move up from 10's to 11-54's. here are good and bad things about them: pros: huge sound, good for drop d/c tuning, made my fingers stronger, stay in tune well, feel awesome. cons: plain g string becomes black after about 2 weeks, sound about 40% less good after a week. these strings are practically penis enlargers. besides the plain g string, i'm pretty satisfied.

Best strings I've ever had

By Joe

from Reno

I use them on Eb standard and D standard tuning. I used to play with Skinny Top Heavy Bottom strings, but with these ones there's no comparison. Sound is just amazing. I would recommend these strings for beginner, it may take some time to get used it.
