If You Play A Lot...Look Elsewhere featured

Comments Initially, out of the pack, these strings were killer. Even before initial tuning these sounded like they were from a whole other planet. The tonal clarity was like none other. I am a die hard EB user but I had to see what the fuss was about. As a player on a budget I try to stretch it to the penny as many of you can feel me, I'm sure. Well, it was a great first round, but it faded shortly afterwards.


Liked about it The tonal quality and "fast" playability of these strings is second to none. They are really on to something with this formula. The ability to tune these with ease is of the highest quality. They tune quickly and SEEM to hold it very quickly. Also added, they don't seem to have a breakage issue as I have yet to break one.


Didn't like As good as they were in the affomentioned, the tone and playability of these strings initially was second to none, almost unbelievable, but as time went on (and personally it was 2 days) I noticed a change. Something just wasn't right. The decay of the material seemed to be delayed as all of a sudden the strings couldn't stay in tune. This left me believing it was a trem issue being as I have a couple of floating bridge guitars. BUT my LP showed it (supprisingly more) than the others. Couldn't stay in tune. Shortly after the tone went completely dead and there was no salvaging it. The strings even corroded which was a shock because I always wipe down the entire playable surface after each use...most of the time, before also. I couldn't believe it. They cost more, so you should expect more, but for what reason? They realy have a good thing going, but to keep customers, you would think they would treat that "super metal" they use to gain intial Godlike playing to keep for the long run. I would go broke trying to stay up to par if they were my main choice. This is why I chose the less flashy but long lasting heavy hitter that you can find my comment on through these pages also, I think they are making the right move and picking up on certain aspects where these left off and became complacent instead of progressive.

Awesome strings

Comments I use the "light top/heavy bottom" set. You get the ease of stretching the high strings
and still have the nice low end on the bottom strings.


Liked about it Everything!!See comment section


Didn't like If you don't keep these strings clean with a rag after you get done, they will go dead
fairly quick
