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 strings seem to work the best for me. I've tried lots of other brands and always come back to Slinky 9's. They can seem a little too floppy on a Gibson so you might want to move up to 10's but on a Strat they work great! Keep them clean and wiped off and they will last pretty good. The only con I have is the high e sometimes comes loose at the barrel.

              Just love these slinky strings , I have them on several of my Strats, Les Pauls , SGs and Tellies . I love the tones they give bright and twangs as well as warm tones. I tried many others and came back they do it for me.
