I play hardcore/metal and I detune my Strat down to drop B (B-Gb-B-F-Ab-Db) and after some experimentation I chose these strings for a couple reasons. First, since the tuning is so low I must have a thicker string so they stay tight enough so as not to change tone when you vary pressure. The thinckness also beefens up the sound of my single coil Strat running on lead pickup. Also tuning. Ive found that a lesser set tends to go out of tune frequently, these dont. I did have to slightly cut the nut on the E and A to accomodate them but this was simple and didnt screw anything up. If you detune, or just want a thicker string or sound these strings do the job beautifully without being so thick they are hard to play. Try it out, I think youll be suprised.

      Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

      i've been a pro musician for over 40 years. d'addario's are strung on all my guitars except my gypsies. i tried a number of various brands earlier on in my career and had found d'addario's to be of consistant quality, so i stayed with them throughout the years.

      Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

      I haven't used D'Addario strings in over 20 years because I kept getting dead "D" strings in my sets 10's, right out of the box. I've been using SIT Strings exclusively for all of guitars, with great results.
      Unfortunately, I've recently picked up an Epiphone Regent Deluxe with a frequensator tailpiece and my SIT's wheren't long enough on the bass side so I went with the D'Addario's and they seem just fine.

        Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        I play short scale guitars. I have an epiphone explorer (24.75) and an Ibanez Art100 (24.7). For the longest time ive been wanting a string set where i could tune to drop c and drop b with out having floppy lower strings. These are perfect. D'addarios have a higher tension than most other string brands, so they hold up well. Just be cautios, if you are a lead player like me, the e, b, and g strings will take some getting used to because they are a little thick. But these are perfect if youre primarly a rhythm player.

        Great Strings

        By 

        from The Great State of Denial

        Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        When I finally bumped my string gauges up to 13's, these were the first ones I tried out on a Goth Epiphone Explorer. These strings held up to brutal punishment, and sounded fantastic. My only complaint is that they are all packaged in a single bag. I no longer use these strings, but they are awesome none the less.

        Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        Thes strings are the real deal ! I used to play Ernie Ball Slinkies, boom outa here! I tried Boomer's, no way. I tried several others and NONE have stood up to these strings. I play 13-56 on my B tunings and use 12-52 on my D drop tune guitars. I play professional with 4 CD releases and have no problems with tuning, tone or durability. Now if I can only get a sponsorship. LOL Overall, you get your monies worth when you pay the extra buck or two.

        even if you don't play death metal...

        Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        These strings are good even if you don't down tune that often. I prefer an unwound 3rd string though.

        Comments about D'Addario EJ22 Nickel Jazz Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        These strings are amazing for heavy/death metal. It kills the sharp eeryness that other strings give. Excellent for Drop B tuning.

        these strings are awesome for blues, but not what im talking about. i play lots of heavy stuff like slipknot and chevelle, drop b tuning i would reccomend for heavy metal too.
