    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.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

      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.

                Bought this for that tiny string that always breaks on a 12 string. Won't have to worry about that any more. Made for electric, but works just fine on acoustic. Used these 30 years ago on all my electrics because it will bend easily without breaking.

                  Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

                  Whether playing acoustic or electric, the lighter strings are eacy to break if you strum hard or use alternate tunings. I typically break the smaller E, first string, or the octave G, third string, on a 12 string. It is smart to have single strings as backup so you can put on a single string and keep playing. It is embarrasing having to borrow guitars, if there even is one available. I don't always have room to bring a spare guitar, but there is always room to bring along a few strings,as spares.

                        Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

                        I play blues and blues rock, and my go-to strings are the Ernie Ball Classic Nickel Rock n Roll (10-46's). I rarely break a string but, (as is the case with any other brand of strings I've tried), my top 3 strings wear out (their tone becomes dull, they fail to tune / intonate properly, and lose their feel) faster than the bottom 3. So I usually pull off the top 3 and replace them once before replacing the entire set. These plain steel strings, which are direct replacements for the plain steel (10 - 13 - 17) strings included in the Classic Nickel sets, are ideal for this purpose. They tune up, intontate, and stay in tune well, have good clear tone, and have a very supple feel to them. They are widely available and, purchased in 6 packs, are a good value as well.
