what happened??

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!...Read complete review

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 like these because when using sets of .008 gauge strings, the high E string is very easy to break. It's always a good thing to have extras around and other than Rogue brand (which I've never tried) this is the only brand that sells multi-packs of them (that I know I of). They sound fine and play fine, but they really do break much more easily and after a much shorter time than the D-Addarios I normally use. I'm still glad to have them and the price is good.

        Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

        I play a lot of blues and really stretch the strings. The 9's being so light a gauge break more readily. Also on my Fender Telecaster and Duo-Sonic, three point bridges, I have Wilkinson brass compensated saddles which seem to lend to the problem as I don't break the strings as often on my Les Paul type saddles. Anyway, even as light as the strings are, the Ernie Ball 9's still have a good tone.

          I played professionally 50 years ago and have just returned to the guitar in the past year. Now, I just play with a small group for pleasure or with back-up tapes..I have used Ernie Ball strings almost forever and still love the fact that they don't stretch out of tune while playing blues and jazz.

            Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

            I like light-gauge string sets for finger-style country blues, and I like medium-gauge string sets for playing slide. When I want to use the same guitar for fingerstyle with occassional slide use, I substitute an Ernie Ball 14 for my usual 11 on the first (highest) string. I can still fret the string easily, but it's heavy enough to sound good with a glass slide.

              Great string. Good tone. Bends easily. My only complaint is that it can break on a 2 step bend. I have broken more than one this way. That is why I buy the 6 string pack of this size. I love the way the string plays though.
