I've been playing music for 50 years and have used many different kinds of strings on my PRS Custom 10 Top. I've had the best success with the Super Slinky 2223's for dependable usage on any type of playing whether rythum or leads - Rock, Country, or Blues -- just a very versatile string. Can't go wrong with this one.

    Im 56 and have played guitar since I was a young teen. I've tried lots of other strings but now all I use are Slinky Pinks. As you get older, heavy string guages can mess with your finger joints. Do yourself a favor and go Pink. They have a great tone and pick and bend superbly!

          I use these for country picking, blues and rock. They are strong enough to bend without breaking as long as you don't go to crazy with them. Affordable enough to replace more often. I have been using them for over forty years.

            Love the super slinky. I have been on green for my whole life, but when I put these bad boys on my Gibson SG, it was like playing a whole different guitar. Smooth quick and a great shallow sound. I love them.

                I've used Super Slinky's since they first came out in the 60's. These strings are very consistent; but if your a regular working musician I would change them before each gig or weekly. They have a very good sound when they are fresh.

                    I really like these strings, They have a great sound
                    I have tried the 10's and they are not so slinky to me; a little hard to bend; and the 8's are easy
                    to bend but I think some of the low end is lost
                    So I recommend the the 9's the #2223 pink.

                                  Ernie Balls make me touch my own balls. They're that good!

                                  Got these for a family member, an occasional player. Works fine. Easier on her fingers, so they encourage her to play more. Still great tone out of a Gibson Blues Hawk. I love E B slinkys. I use them myself on several guitars. They bring out the best in harmonics and sustain. They are durable both for bends and longevity.

                                  Take the time to read the Ernie Ball story. Their commitment to quality and service in an age of disposability is inspiring.
