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.

    I use these strings because my 21-year-old-grandson recommended them. He is a dedicated rock and blues player and knows more about strings than I ever will.

        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.

            5 nights a week, I change twice during that period. Can't beat the price, I used these years ago because of that and since I change so often, not wasting money on worthless high end strings. Not enough different to spend more.

                  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 have used Ernie Ball strings for years and have never had a problem with them. I do a lot of string bending, so the 9's make it easier on my fingers, but the 10's have a richer tone.
