Awesome Strings with tons of tone!

Comments They are quality strings at a great price, better than many more expensive strings and sound a lot better than "Coated" strings that are meant to last longer, such as Elixer strings.


Liked about it Easy to bend but not fragile, I recently tried a set of GHS strings and I broke the high E as I was tuning up. I rarely break a string when I use ernie ball though! Harmonics are also very lively!


Didn't like Nothing not to like... a great all around set of strings.

A Good Change in Sound

Comments I started using these because I wanted something that was good for high leads and heavy rhythms. The sound was so much richer and more balanced than the strings I was using before. They stay in tune pretty well and they are good for shredding. They felt weird at the beginning because I was using Elixer Ultra-Lights for two years.

I was given a huge box of Ernie Ball strings and I thought..."why not?" The "Hybrid" strings seemed most appealing because I wanted to play with more punch in my rhythms. I used to play mostly leads before, but I started balancing out my playing with a mixture of rhythms as well.

I like playing with the clean channel and I played a little Pearl Jam and it sounded great. Then I played an arpeggio sequence from Dream Theater's "Glass Prison" and it sounded stronger than before. I would gladly get another few sets of these.


Liked about it +Heavy Rhythms as well as High Leads
+Pinch Harmonics Sound Better
+These Strings can Take the Abuse of Strenuous Playing


Didn't like +The feel is awkward if you're used to ultra-light strings
+Doesn't sing as much as Elixers
+Not Easy to Find in Some Places

Awful Strings.

Comments After having used regular super slinky gauge 9's I thought i'd give these a go... The first hour of playing them they were nice but after a 3 hour gig, they were rotting away!!! I've had them for nearly a week and they are in worse conditions than the last lot had been after 3 months!!

Complete Waste of money. Roto-pinks or Regular slinkys are far farrr better.


Liked about it The sound they gave off for the first hour.


Didn't like They rotted after a couple of hours
They were dull in less time than that

Widdly widdly - chugga chugga

Comments I tried these after i was fed up of buying separate sets for this gauge as at first they were unavailable. These are great if you want decent bottom end, say from 10's/11's and the option for tapping from 8's/9's. With the abuse i gave them they lasted a fair while but the high E and D were always breaking - probably these would last longer if tuned down to D.


Liked about it Hybrid-good bottom end and bright high's/pick harmonics etc
Cheap (like me!)
great for tapping


Didn't like Not as 'bright' as D'Darrio's
Maybe the company should think of an 8's Hybrid set for scalloped fretboards...
Seemed to be in short supply at most of my local shops (for one shop i was the ONLY customer for this set!)

Better quality without a rise in price!

Comments Ernie Ball RPS strings are better than the original Slinky strings. They have the patented "Reinforced Plain String" so the higher strings last long without breaking. I've never had problems with the lower strings breaking on me fast, and now I don't have that problem with the higher strings. Just a better overall set of strings.


Liked about it They last longer than stock Slinky's
Tone is increased a bit.
Ball ends look cool!


Didn't like Not all guitar stores in my area sell them.
They still break faster than more expensive brands.
Not coated.

Not hardly my first pick

Comments I heard lots of hype about super slinky from my friends, so I had the music shop string up the 6 and took it home to jam. The high E popped after about an hour of playing, and I never went back to the super slinky 9's


Liked about it Stay in tune well
I like the name.
I did like the sound


Didn't like I didn't like how the string wore out and broke fast.
The strings loose their kick (at least on tape) when they get some wear on them.
