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.

      A few problems with some harmonics in 6th and 5th strings. I´ve changed a little my technique. I guess it has to do also with the guitar mics.

      Makes my Paul scream, my Strat sing and my Tele twang. Couldn't ask for anything more. I love to bend them strings and they never fail me.

          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.
