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.Read complete review

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.....

      I've been using EB strings and particularly, this Regular Slinky package for years. I mean 45 years to be closer to exact. Why change when the quality and consistency are there.

                I always have at least 3 sets of backup strings in my guitar case. You never know when a string will break or a friend didn't have the fore sight to pack an extra set. I have used these strings for years and have found the quality to be consistent.

                Tried allot of strings over the years and avoided these because they were cheep and thought they would have a cheep sound to go along with the price. Boy was I ever wrong, These are my go to know, I use different gauges on different guitars and there acoustic strings on my acoustic, Love his brand!
