Don't complain

By Jim P.

from Chicago, IL

These are exceptional strings. You can get these practically anywhere. Don't complain about them starting to go out of tune after used them a lot, that happens with ALL strings. I used to have strings break on me left and right. Not a single one of these strings has ever broken on me. I just replace them when they start to go out of tune or get grimy which is around once every other month or so. I'd rather have strings that can take some punishment than strings that break in the middle of a show. That's why Clapton and Page use these: it's hard to break them, they're cheap enough to get in bulk, and they SOUND GOOD. Rate these up. They're 5 star strings.

These strings are junk. They had dull sound right out of the package. And the sound got worse within a week. If you are a beginner and are trying to save some money these strings are for you, but if you spend another dollar or so you can get d'addario EXLs and they will have way better sound quality than these. These strings last a month at the most compared to a couple months with the d'addarios.

Regular Slinkys

By Joe

from Goleta, CA

These are the best strings ever. I use them live, for practice, and rehearsals. I use these on my Stratocasters, SG, and Epiphone Casino. There is a long list of guitarists who use these. Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck. I think these are the best strings Ernie Ball makes.

These strings were not bad, just your average electric guitar strings. I won't buy them again. They were fried in about a month. The high strings would go out of tune just after a few bends.

I have been using these stings for a few years now and i love them. I have tried other brands and other size strings but i always go back to these ones. They are the perfect size for every style of music. To make a long review short, if u want excellent strings for any style of playing then buy these strings.
