    I have been trying out different sets of 9's and 10's and Hybrid sets for about the past three years now. This set is the perfect hybrid set. E,A,and D,are from a set of 10's and G,B,and E anr from a set of 9's. I did like the 91/2 set from GHS Boomers, but the bass strings were a bit too thin. This set is perfect. I first tried them quite a while back, but had to explore other options. I now realize after seeing what else there is out there, and realized this is my favorite set. The thinner treble strings help as I have had issues with my fretting hand before (carpal tunnel). These bend easily and sound nice and full. My favorite Rock strings. I recommend them to all Rock players.

    I have been a working pro musician for 35 years. Have always counted on Ernie Ball strings. They provide great tone...

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2222 Nickel Hybrid Slinky Orange Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    I really thought these would be fine on my guitar but I have a floating tremolo system. The strings are too tight. On a regular guitar they should be fine and there should be no reason not to buy them. I'm tuned lower than usual now and that's the way I rock these babies.

        What can I say about these workhorses? I love hybrid strings because you can get a mix of gauges...I like a lighter top end but want that twang on the lower strings, and these babies give you both. I've been using Ernie Ball strings for years and recommend them on a regular basis.

          I only play for myself (and any family who happens to be listening). I think these are good quality strings with a long life.

            Smooth soloing with fairly light bend pressure. Rhythm playing is full.

                    I've been using these Hybrid strings since 1989! Before that I used the 9-46 sets, but I found the top strings are hard to bend after a while. Especially the high E. The Hybrids give you a heavier tone on the bottom strings and the top three strings are very easy to bend.

                      I order all my musical needs from Muscians Friend. They not only have the best prices but they stand behind every product they sell. I don't even bother going to the local music stores anymore.
