Rusted faster than regular slinkys.

By Chadguy

from Oklahoma City

Pros

    Cons

    • Expensive with no benefit
    • Replacement isn't worth the cost to buy new
    • They rust

    Best Uses

      Comments about Ernie Ball Paradigm Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      Nope. Don't buy them. I put these on and just after 2 weeks, the plain strings have already rusted. I wipe down my guitars after every use to minimize corrosion and rust, but to no avail with these. Regular strings last me 4-6 weeks without rusting, and that's with nearly everyday use. These were used and treated no differently and rusted twice as fast.

      The replacement procedure is a bigger pain than it's worth. You have to save the original foil wrapper, fill out a non-mobile friendly form, print off a pdf, package it all up, and then ship it off to EB.

      Nearly everything about these strings suck.

      DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

      By Thomas

      from Rock Island, IL

      Comments about Ernie Ball Paradigm Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      Strung my Truse Historic Les Paul with these and couldn't have been more disappointed. The high e broke in under 24 hours. Ironically I broke the string playing a Paul Gilbert song (an artist these strings are supposedly stronger than). Contacted Ernie Ball over a week ago about the problem and have yet to hear from them. If I could have given a 0 star review I would have.

      Amazing strings

      By Ulysses

      from Philadelphia, PA

      Comments about Ernie Ball Paradigm Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      Great sounding strings that feel similar to the Slinkys I've played for over a decade. They seem to last longer so far, and over a week of hard playing and not signs of a string wearing down or breaking. I really like these strings and may be switching them to all of my guitars soon

              Broke in about 2 weeks... i wasn't playing anything out of the ordinary like ernie ball used to demonstrate the supposed strength that these strings have. They play about the same as the slinkys but, for me, didnt even last as long!

              For the record i was using the paradigm 9s.

              Dont waste your money on these.
