Great strings

Providing I don't get another bad batch of strings, these are my go to 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.

These strings keep e unraveling back near the bridge, hardly getting a few days out of them, I have been playing for fun for 30 yrs, and cannot recall strings lasting this short of time.....hopefully just a bad run?

Going to try another brand for awhile.....

                Most companies' string sets are based on the old Ernie Ball gauges from the 60s

                    I've used these strings plenty of times before, they sound good and have a great feel. I like them on my Strat and my Les Paul. They last as well as any others, and much better than some that I've had rust on me after a very short time (humid climate here in the Houston area). The deal I got on the 3-pack was great, so if you see them on sale be sure to grab some.
