I've used these since they first came on the market many years ago. Stopped for a while and used GHS since I was offered an endorsement, but have come back to EB. They're always consistent and sound great, as well as having a nice feel to the wound strings. I'm happy with them and can't see moving to anything else. Tried several brands of coated strings, but just can't get used to feel of them and they don't really seem to last any longer that EB's and they will go dead just as quickly as any normal string.

Not really buy 10 get 2 free...

Great strings, but pricing is a little innacurate for "Free" bonus packs
Doing the Math, you can buy one set for $3.99 Buying 10 at $3.99

Great strings, but pricing is a little innacurate for "Free" bonus packs
Doing the Math, you can buy one set for $3.99 Buying 10 at $3.99
Buying 10 at $3.99 would be $39.90

OR you can "buy 10 and get 2 Free" for $44.99
Therefore, the "2 Free" costs you an extra 5 Bucks... not really free, now is it Friends???

        I never have to worry if I have a set of these on my guitar. I can't say that about any other brand I've tried.
        I recently decided to try to save money and buy a case of another (well known) brand. Waste of my money and my time since I wound up buying a case of Slinky's after the other brand kept breaking. Those other (well known) strings are sitting there on the shelf as a reminder why we just stick with Slinky's .

          In nearly 40 years playing, I have tried other brands for my electrics on occasion. The story never changes- for my buck Ernie Ball is it. I always come back to the nickel Slinkys.

          I've been using Ernie Ball Regular Slinkys for many years. They hold up better than others I've tried and always add nicely to my tone. This was a great deal and I just couldn't pass it up.

          Cheaper by the dozen. I have never broken a string when playing and do not experience any tuning problems or deaden problems with these strings and I have used them for many years now.

            Everybody has their own favorite, but I love these strings. I change out every 15 hours or so. I love the feel of these strings. I have these on all of my guitars. I also back the pickups off for even more sustain. This is a great product and these have never failed me.
