      I installed these pins in a Giannini Craviola, after installing a Tusq saddle and nut. The pins added a level of brightness to the tone,increased the sustain a bit,as well as just looking pretty danged cool. I recommend them to anyone wanting to add some nice touches to their guitar.

          I just got my first 12-string guitar, so I've not had a lot of time with these strings. They are, so far, on par with all the Ernie Ball Slinkys I've played. Good, solid strings. So far, they've got the best tone of any strings I've tried, but it's early, yet. I'd recommend them.

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2230 Nickel 12-String Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

            I can't say enough about these strings. I've been using them for at least 15 years, maybe longer. They're the "only" strings for my 67 Rick 6/12 convertible. They make this guitar very playable. When the comb is engaged for 6 string playing, there's a huge amount of tension on the neck and strings. The 8's have never broken, and amazingly, for this guitar, they stay in tune and always sound great. Thanks, Ernie Ball, you've kept this guitar working for my son and I to play, and for people to hear, instead of just a cool conversation piece to hang on the wall.

              Do your guitar a favor and always tune your 12 string to "D". Use a Capo to raise the pitch to "E" if you need to. In the long term, your neck, heel joint and bridge will thank you.
              Just some advice, take it or leave it as you wish.

              Just Right

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2230 Nickel 12-String Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              If you keep your electric 12 tuned to E (as opposed to D like many acoustic players) these are the ones to use. They're much easier to fret than a heavier gauge and have a bright,chimey sound that stands out.

              Earnie Ball 12 Stirng Electric Set

              By Mongo-G5t9Q

              from Minot, ND

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2230 Nickel 12-String Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              I typically play my six string electrics with 9's and 10's. I originally put 9's on my 12 string electric. They were nice and stable, but a little stiff, so I decided to try a set of 8's on my Peavey Hydra double-neck. I am very happy with them. They stay in tune very well for such a light gauge. The difference in the action was very noticeable. It was no longer a chore to do barre chords or other type of runs. I would recommend them if your action seems too stiff. EB's are always a great sounding string anyway. I think you'd be happy with them.

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2230 Nickel 12-String Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              Ernie Balls are my electric strings of choice, so I was happy to see they made a very very light 12-string electric set. These are perfect for those of us with skinny fingers: the .40 E string is slender enough that there's no problem sounding the octave string. Perfect!
