I'm making a living in a top 40 band. I've been playing guitar for 40 years. I've played dozens of different brands of strings. I recently switched back to Ernie Balls from DR's. I liked the DR's except that they were expensive and prone to breaking. I also wanted to go lighter, from 10's to 9's and so I elected to try the Ernie Balls again. I've always liked Ernie Balls. Seems I'm always coming back to them. Anyways, been a couple months now on one pack and with about 400 hours of playing on them they still feel and sound good. I expect to put another 400 hours on them. I might even try 8's next time. I like these strings, but the DR's are smoother, and so easier to bend and do vibratos, but who needs strings that break on stage? Not me!

Good tone

When I used these for the first time the tone was great but g and high e broke within the first week. If your using these be careful.

        I use these stings on all my electric guitars. They get the job done. Tone is name of the game and you won't get a better tone unless you play heavier strings

              I just opened these strings today and before I even got them tuned the .09 gauge broke thats not the one that was giving me trouble but for some reason it broke all the same I'll just stick with DR and GHS from now on. I'm not using Ernie Ball anything anymore.

                    These are my new string of choice for my Les Paul and my son like them on his SG. I was playing Gibson Les Paul signature Series strings loved them but they were pricey at about. The Hybrid Slinky's are every bit as good sounding and playing. They allow for ease of bending on the higher strings and you still get the chunk you expect out of the humbuckers on the low end. At the price you can really stock up on them!!! Think of them as 91/2's. Can't say enough good things about them!

                      If you have been using Elixir strings, these will make your finger tips raw for the first couple of uses, but they are good strings. I think that the stuff people are posting about using them a ton of times is a joke. They are decent strings, but they are not coated, and they will rust on the smaller strings. I wipe them down above and beneath, and they still tarnish. I will probably go back to Elixir.
