    These are the cheapest, easiest upgrade you can get for a new guitar. Even when I've gotten new Gibson's & Fender's from their factories, I cut off their's and put on Super Slinky 9's. Alot of my guitarist friends have gone up to 10's & 11's saying 9's are for wimp's, Heck with that, I've got COMPLETE control over 9's so that's where I'm staying ! If it works, DO FIX IT ! So for me, size realy doesn't matter especialy if you can't use them ! I can get Zakk's squeals and bends galore with chunky low end, IN TUNE ! They work just as well on all Floyd's too. If you haven't tried them yet, you do not know what you're missing out on ! They're bright, crisp, bend the easiest and last a long time which is what I'm looking for in a string. LOOK at their list of users, it alone speaks volumes ! Slash, Clapton & on & on...JUST GET SOME ! You'll see...Dr. LarRy approved !

    I had not used EB strings in a while and bought these because they were cheap. Never had a problem with them in the past so I didn't believe the reviewers who said that the quality control has gone down and now they slip at the ball end of the b and high e strings. Unfortunately, those guys were right. The quality of these has completely gone to hell, and if you do any heavy bending, vibrato or use a b string bender, forget it. These will give you nothing but trouble.

      These are probably the best strings for me as far as feel, tone, and longevity. I've tried other brands and always come back to the EB pinks. They just seem to ring better. I buy the 10 + 2 sets as that is the best price for these strings. I string two guitars about 4 - 5 times a year so it pays to buy in bulk. If you go through strings very fast , it will pay to buy these in bulk.

      These are really good strings for the money. At the price that MF is selling them, i can aford to change them out frequently and always have a good sounding guitar with alot of attack and presence. "A Working man's string"

          I may be mistaken but, at least to me, Ernie Ball strings have slipped a bit with quality control, Strings are dead sounding at times. Sometimes the ends unravel - I've taken to soldering them. This helps a lot but it does take time. The strings do not keep their tone as well as in the past. They also tend to break easier. Even with all these negatives, I still would give them 4 stars because the aforementioned does not happen much more than 20% of the time plus they do kick in 2 extra sets of strings.

                Have been using Ernie Ball's Super Slinky strings exclusively since 1968, I'm telling my age here. With as many guitars as I own, and always adding more, I was happy to find I could buy them in bulk and get a great deal at Musician's Friend.
