These strings aren't that great. They're not bad, persay, but not that good, either. The tone they have is actually pretty good, although there are a little more lows than I like. They compare rather closely to Dean Markleys in tone. But after that, they start to fail.These strings don't seem to stay in tune as good as others. I had to stretch Ernie Ball strings more than most other strings I've tried to make them stay in tune. And even then, they don't stay as well as the others. Also, both sets of EB strings I've played have a stiff 'G' string, which I don't like. Also, that same string seems to be a bit quiter than the rest. Maybe it's made like that to offset the Stratocaster pickup poles? I don't know, either way, I would recommend Dean Markley or D'Adarrio strings before these.
