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 use these strings on both of my guitars. They have good tone, and are easy to bend. If I break a string it tends to be the .09 E string. I love that I can buy a 6 pack of just that string. Breaks occasionally happen when doing a two step bend.

          Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Plain Single Guitar String:

          Ernie Ball Single String Packs are an excellent value. When Ernie made those singles available for purchase way back when, it was the answer for every gigging guitarist who ever experienced having one of their 1st, 2nd or 3rd strings break during their performance. Plus, now that the single string gauges come in 6-packs, the value is even greater. Having the .010 and .013 gauges handy has always been essential for me. I rarely break strings when I play; but, when it happens, I know I have the best replacement strings available.

              grab & go! great quality at great price! this multipack of single B strings a "must" for any (electric)guit player! few things worse than breaking a string (well, maybe there ARE...), but as replacements, these ones ROCK! don't worry 'bout matching previous brand -they sound lively, stay in tune, & last! thanks MF for offering!

                        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.
