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 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.

          These are the only strings I use. 9's on the Strats, and 10's on the Les Pauls. I bought a dozen at a special price.

            Great quality, consistent, reliable strings. Been playing a long time, and these strings have never let me down. I always buy by the box, and when I've bought other brands, noticed consistency issues.

              Awesome strings. I was turned on to these maybe 15 yrs ago and there is no comparison to the Diaddario's I used to use. I rarely break a string even with 2.5 step bends and deep dives.

                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"
