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.

      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.

          Awesome Strings

          By Josh Paul

          from Kansas City, Missouri

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

          The quality, sound, and price of these strings can't be beat. If you like light gauge strings the Hybrid Slinkys are for you.
          I have always used Ernie Ball strings. I used to use Super Slinkys, but they lacked bass. I stepped up to Hybrid Sinky and fell in love. I put these on nearly every guitar I own. Even my acoustics, since I play a lot of blues and I like that bright sound. These things bend like butter and rarely ever break. The only other strings I use are Skinny Top Heavy Bottom for fretting and sliding, and Martin Resinators for slide only.

          My perfect strings

          By Anonymous

          from Undisclosed

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

          After trying many other gauges, I found this to be perfect. These strings are the best strings for me. They have the expressive playability of the high strings so you can get your 3 tone bends on the high E string and the chunky low bottom for really thick sounding chords.I'm soon going to try out some Heavy Bottoms since I love this concept of a light top to a heavy bottom and that thicker strings give you supposedly better tone.

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

          I was using Ernie Ball 10's and was wishing I could get my bends more accurate,( I play Blues and Classic Rock Style ) I saw this set with a 9 thru 46 and though I'd give 'em a try. Well I love these strings! The price is right, I play constantly (when I'm not at work) and they last a good two weeks, They're uncoated ( I hate the sound of coated strings) and they sound great, Clean or Crunchy. Definitely NOT a dropped tuning string, But for my playing style I'll stick with these.

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

              I've been using the hybrid slinky strings on all my electric guitars for over a year now. Their tone is fine with me. Most of all, I like the durability of the hybrids. Prior to switching to the hybrids I mostly used super slinky strings or d'addario. I would typically break or have to change strings monthly, but the hybrids have lasted up to 3 months or more (depending on how much or how hard I'm playing). Everyone has different needs, but these work great for me.

                Playing a stratocaster I find that I need the heavy strings to help with my power chords, coupled with 9's , for me it's the perfect set. (Playing starts for 40 years)

                I have played onstage for almost forty years and I do not remember a time when I didn't use Hybrid Slinkys. They have the bottom-end I need for chunky rythm and the lighter top end strings for easy bends and cutting through the background noise of a band. They're perfect for what I need.

                          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.
