    I recommend that anyone who plays guitar a lot buy extra high E strings and B strings since they tend to break the most. I have a 2-pack of whole string Ernie ball string sets, but if the high E and the B strings break the most, I'd better think about buying a 6-pack of each of those single strings.

    This was my go to string pack. I just used 4 strings in a row. the fist and last I put on unwound at the bridge before I even got it in tune! The other two lasted a few seconds of playing. If this was a gig it would be a massive FAILURE. Hope its just my pack.

          If you're playing out, having a few spare strings is a must. MF has the best selection and the best price and you can't beat the free shipping. And don't forget the email discount codes for an additional 15%...

              Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

              Not much to say, it's a back up string. While restringing my guitars, I've occasionally broken the smaller strings. These seem to be decent replacements so that I don't have to waste an entire package to replace the string. I bought extras in several different sizes. Glad these are available.

                    I started playing guitar as a kid in the 60's. Back then "the" string to use was Ernie Ball. I still insist they're the best. I know there are a lot more choices today but I figure if it ain't broke don't fix it.

                          Was a pro but quit several years ago because of trigger finger and carpal tunnel. Had surgery and now my hands work just OK for my own enjoyment and get-togethers. Use both 9 and 10 gauge E strings. 9 gauge gives me "on-the-fret" action for faster single string. 10 ga gives a bit mellower tone and I can cut down the bass for the low e so it doesn't roar.

                            I usually use Ernie Ball strings. They stay in tune, last well and if I need one, I can grab one most anywhere. Long time old company who has been reliable for me.
                            I use both 9's and 10's on my E-string.

                              Mixed in tonally with the other non-broken Martin M140 Light Acoustic strings on the guitar. Sounds fine to me although I'm not an expert.
