been trying various brands of strings for 10 years now. DR, D'Addario, GHS Carvin, everly, etc. recently settled on Ernie Ball since the sound is better than the others that ive tried but they have way too much treble and wonky mids. this is even more pronounced the newer the strings are and doesnt really go away even when the strings are near the end of their life. Finally decided to try a set of Blue Steels after a talking to a local music store. These are the way to go if you want a very balanced sound. bass was present but not overly so, mids were strident but not wonky sounding and treble was subdued somewhat but very sweet. they last forever. i play for about 6 hours a week and they last about 1-2 months. Ive never heard my ibanez SZ sound so beautiful. if youve been searching for

I've been searching for a new favorite set of strings and tried these out. I am very disappointed with the tone. First off, they just don't have that new string high-end sparkle that you look forward to when changing strings. The low and high frequencies seem non-existant with my set. The worst problem of all is the way they make pinch harmonics very difficult. I can usually do pinches almost anywhere on my guitar but find myself fighting to pull them off in easy places. You're better off with D'Addario's or Ernie Ball's.

        I was tired of my old Ernie Ball strings breaking, so after a little research, I decided to go with the Dean Markley Blue Steels. I have been using these strings for a few years now with no issues and a great tone.

                Good strings . . . I use these on solid and hollow bodied guitars. Playing style is light to medium, mostly for studio work. Tone / tuning lasts a long time.
