52% iron mixed with 48% nickel is the formula for Alloy-52, the material used in the Everly 9210 B-52 Rockers Alloy Light Guitar Strings. This magnetically active alloy makes for an extremely durable, highly responsive electric guitar string, with awesome resonance characteristics. It resists tarnish up to 3 times over its nickel-plated steel predecessor and delivers more sustain and overtones. Alloy-52 is a mysterious metallic substance found in the desert just outside Pahrump, Nevada and is believed to have fallen from space.

I've been using these strings for a number of years now and they are VERY good strings. This alloy sounds great, holds tuning very well, and lasts awhile if you necessary. One reviewer commented that they can rust. That might be true over a period of time, but only if you change strings every couple months or have very acidic sweat, the former not really being a problem for the serious guitarist (you'd better be changing them every 2-3 weeks for the best sound/tuning stability). I've used many different string brands and types, but these are my favorite. Just very expensive if you play a lot or have a few guitars. I typically use them on my best/most used guitars.
These strings have more sustaining character than ANY OTHER guitar strings on the planet!!! Do YOURSELF a favor and see for yourself as soon as you start to tune up after changing over from the others. B-52's are out of this world Man... BELIEVE me. I get very disapointed when I am forced to buy something else simply because a store doesn't have it and I have a broken string at home. B-52's are by FAR the best strings that makes a HUGE difference in to right out of the box. NOTHING else even compares.
i have tried different gauges of strings and different companies, everything from ernie balls, fender, GHS, SIT strings, dunlop, and a few more and i have to say that these strings stay tuned and they give me a louder tone from my jackson V i play. after playing these bad boys i will forever be a Everly strings fan for life. my search for my perfect strings ended here.
I bought 3 packs of these strings thinking they were going to be pretty good. The first few days the strings sounded good, after that it went downhill. What's good? I haven't broken a string yet. What's bad? rust and sound quality in the long run. I would suggest D'Addario EXL 110 Regular Light Elec. strings over these any day.
