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.

Great Strings!

Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Guitar Strings - Buy 10, Get 2 Free:

I've been using these strings for 30 years plus and have always thought they performed well and were a great bargain. I can't remember ever opening any that had manufacturing problems. When they started packaging them in sealed packs I knew they had just made a great improvement for the shelf life of these strings. Humidity factors just went away and the life of the strings just got longer. So now buying the 10 packs plus 2 ..I know they will last and keep their great tone even longer! Great job Ernie Ball ! I recommend these strings to any musician looking for good strings at a great price!

Simply The Best

Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Guitar Strings - Buy 10, Get 2 Free:

I've been using these strings for almost 20 years on a multitude of guitars with every setup available. They just work they intonate, stay in tune & hold their tone. They can sing softly and they can scream. I also sweat some sort of alien acid that eats strings up over a weekend so, with these, I can afford to change strings when I want.

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Guitar Strings - Buy 10, Get 2 Free:

      I love these strings for Strats & Teles. That combination of scale length and string gauge gives just the right resistance for full step bends while allowing the guitar's natural tone to come through. I change strings frequently, and I always love to hear newly installed Super Slinkys in the studio.

      Dependable, no nonsense strings

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Guitar Strings - Buy 10, Get 2 Free:

      Playing guitar for many years I have gone through all of the brands. Ernie Ball is what I started out with and came back to. I typically use 9's on all my guitars. Because of my tendency of breaking the small E string (9) I would string an (11) for the strength and durability in place of the (9). With Ernie Ball, I don't have to replace the (9) with an (11) because it does not break on me. No other brand can make that claim.

                          I've been playing for over thirty years and have been using Ernie Ball Slinky strings on all my electric guitars for many years, they last well, sound good and feel good to my fingers, and using the same string set helps keep intonation adjustments to a minimum since the guitar is already set up for them.

                            These strings are very popular. Many great players have been using for many years, and the best part is that they are affordable, specially if you get the 10 pack and get 2 sets for free.
