D'addario vs Ernie Ball


So, I tried out some Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys, and to be honest, not impressed at all. With me they corroded within the first few days, so I'm intrested in seeing what you guys think of them compared to other brands (especially D'addario). Brightness, Action Buzz, Intonation, Durability etc.

Thanks.

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


I think there is somwhere another thread about this. There was a debate on this forum about it.

I should add you put only 2 brands in this. There are a lot more.

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


D'addario's for me.

I used Ernie Ball for years, but D'addario sound just a bit longer bright imo.

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


i vote ernie because on the pack it says vai, gilbert jimmy page use them...

but seriously, they're the only brand i use (10-46) and i've been using them for like 2 years because i can't be bothered trying anything else. they seem to work fine.

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


IŽve used DŽAddario, Dean Markley and Ernie ball. Dean Markley and DŽAddario are stiffer to me but sound a little better. I prefer DŽAddarioŽs playability. With them loaded the trem gargles like mad but the G string is harmonically "dead" in most of the packs I have bought.

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


I have tried both and I don't really pay much attention to which one is better but I do tend to find myself buying Ernie Ball Slinkys more often than not

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


it only says on the EB pack that vai, page, gilbert etc because they pay them millions of dollars to endorse them.

Re: D'addario vs Ernie Ball


Erine Ball seems to work with all of my guitars well.
Tried D'addario, and they died really really quick.
And they didn't seem to stay in tune as well.
And I can't stand anything coated.
Each to their own.

I use EB on my 7 string, and D'addario on my 6 string. I tend to play my 7 more often.....
