Very Good set of strings featured

Comments I bought the strings one day when I was out at a local guitar center. I bought a few of the custom wound Slinkys before I looked over and saw these. I thought to myself, "Ah, what the hell, might as well give these a shot." so I took them home and restrung my cheep LP ripoff that I bought in Mexico a few years back with them. I plugged in, an to my amazement, it sounded ten times better than before! They worked really well with my cheap pickups. It sounded better than my authentic Gibby. I would strongly suggest getting these. They are amazing, and not too expensive either.


Liked about it I liked the sound they brung to my guitar. I also liked how long they lasted. I go through strings quickly, and these lasted a month or two on my LP.


Didn't like Nothing really.
That they aren't for free?
These are amazing strings.

Ernie Ball Regular Slinky

Comments Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings are a classic for guitarists. Players from Eric Clapton to Steve Vai use the Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings to get their sound.


Liked about it -Quality: Never have broke one ever. You get a great string for the price. I bought some D'Adario's before and only got 5 strings. Then my dad bought some like a week later and the same thing happen.

-Value: One of the cheapest price, but best sounding. How can you go wring with that?

-Sound: They sound perfect from the start till you change them. I get great tone and never have used others that sound better.


Didn't like Liked it all.

Pretty awesome strings

Comments I've always been an Ernie Ball man - I've never really liked any other string manufacturer. Any other strings feel kind of weird to me. I've only ever owned guitars with a 25.5" scale length, so I always put .009s on there because I thought that I wouldn't be able to play properly with any higher gauge strings. How wrong I was! I moved to a set of .010s (Regular Slinkys) and found that I absolutely loved them. Not only do they sound thicker, more full, but they sustain more and stay in tune better. They also improved my playing; my vibrato became more accurate and subtle and my speed picking was enhanced. They come in a sealed pack now so that they're totally not oxidised when you put them on.


Liked about it Sound
Feel
Sustain


Didn't like "New string" feel goes away quickly.
Nothing else.

PURE NICKEL!!!!! YEAH!!!!!

Comments I tried these just to try them. I found them not overly bright (which I love) I hate really bright strings where I almost want to put the guitar off to the side for a week before they die alittle before I can play them.
Pure Nickel isn't as bright as other makes of strings. I LOVE THESE!


Liked about it warmer
intonate truer
stay in tune longer
last longer


Didn't like I'm not endorsed by them(not really eligible to be)the only downfall.

Good and Getting Better

Comments These strings are my personal choice and have been for years. Tried others and always seem to come back. The only reason I try others is the search for tonal longevity.


Liked about it Great initial tone
* Good "play"
* Consistant tuning after normal break in


Didn't like Loss of a few tonal nuances sooner than expected, but with the newer style packaging (sealed, not enveloped) this seems to be less of a problem.

Good cheap strings

Comments I used these and the 9-42 gauge versions for years on my guitars. They sounded great to me although I originally bought them because of their price. My only complaint is that they loose that new string tone pretty quickly and I've found some other brands, D'Addario, work a little better for me. I still keep a few packs around for spares if I break a string.


Liked about it 1. Good bright tone when new.


Didn't like 1. The new string tone and snappyness doesn't last long.
2. They tarnish and dirty up more quickly than some other brands out there.
