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.

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

    The Ernie Ball 9-46 strings have a great tone. I have had a problem with the 1st string unraveling on me though. I emailed Ernie Ball and they actually called me back regarding the problem and sent me replacement strings. Rare and great customer service.
    I have been using Ernie Ball strings for many years and this is the first problem that has occurred. I will continue to use the Ernie Ball strings.
    The Ernie Ball Power Peg Pro is a great product also. I use it to wind new strings and replacing drum heads, as a drum key will fit in the winding slots.

        The Ernie Ball 2222 Nickel Hybrid Slinky Orange Electric Guitar Strings are the best strings that I've found for my blues style playing. The 9-46 gauge gives great bends and a solid bottom. Also, the strings have a great feel.

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

          These strings feel great to my fingers. The top three are great for bends and slippery licks, while the bottom three sound fat and crunchy. I have seen great consistency pack to pack in terms of quality. I love this particularly on my humbucker guitars. If ever there was a string set that gets you closer to the Slash vibe and tone, this is it !!

          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.
