    Great strings

    Providing I don't get another bad batch of strings, these are my go to strings.
    They have an awesome sound and seem to last longer than other brand strings I've used.
    I mark them as a rating of eight, but generally it would be a ten. I usually buy these strings in three 3-packs (9 sets) and normally have no trouble with them. The previous nine sets I brought, about six sets that were of poor quality. Now, that is extremely odd. I've gone years without getting a bad set. I guess I just got a bad batch of strings. This time I purchased two 3-packs and so far I've put a set on my LP and my Ibanez and haven't noticed anything wrong with them. As noted, hopefully that was just a bad batch. I've been using Erine Ball for years. (previously Hybrid Skinkys, now Regular Slinkys)
    Value wise, I have never played with a better string and for the price. It's a steal in my opinion.

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

      Got these as a replacement to match the strings I already had on my Schecter Custom Tempest. I usually use D'Addario on my other guitars, but I really liked the way these feel and sound. Would definitely buy more Ernie Ball Strings.

            I love the Slinkys, they are the only strings that I have played for the last 12 years. They are consistent in their manufacturing, stability and overall tone. Great Strings!

                Used Ernie Ball Super Slinky's in the past. Changing out pickups in my LP Copy, wanted a warmer tone. Have been told the thicker strings will go with the new pickups. more to follow...

                    I have used Ernie Ball strings for YEARS. I've been a professional musician since 1965 but can't remember when I first tried them. I think it was early 1970's. I had friend who worked at a Music Store and he gave me a set to try out. Loved them right away and have used them ever since. I have tried (off and on) other brands but always come back to Ernie Ball. When I was playing 6 nights a week, I used 12's or 13's but I don't play as much so I dropped back to the lighter gauge.

                    Been using these for such a long time. I've experimented with other brands, but I've always come back to these. No more experimenting. These strings have become part of my sound.
