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.

Good for Slide

By Chaim Yankel

About Me Experienced

Pros

  • Consistent
  • Good Tone
  • Heavy Gauge
  • Strong

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Playing slide

    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.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

      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.
