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.

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???

        Used Slinky's for years, switched to DR's for a few years and just recently came back. Suddenly remembered why I liked slinky's so much to start with. Great tone, growly, bright and smooth. Consistent and for years I've used 9's and they were just too light and the string tension didn't seem right on slinky 9's but on 10's they're spot on.

                  I play electric guitar and played just about every brand of string out there. The strings are tough, very rarely have I had one break playing

                    These strings are great ! I have been using Ernie Balll electric string for 45 years , Yes I've tried all the rest but keep coming back . They have that little chimey sound others don't. Only improvement would be if they lasted longer.

                      I have consistently used Ernie Ball strings for their long life and deniability. Any time i tried any of the other brands i could not find the quality and consistency of Ernie Ball Strings. They are always fresh and dependable.

                          Ernie Ball strings have been a great choice for many years. They last a long time with hard use and hold their tone better than most other makes.
