    I played D'addario strings for the first 10 years I played guitar, then about 4 years ago I decided to take a shot at making a custom gauge set specifically for my guitar. Ernie ball strings are easier to find individually so I changed brands. I can't even begin to describe how much of a difference it makes having consistently ascending string tensions across the fretboard on my 7-string (~21 lbs at low end to ~13 lbs at high end) especially for fast players. Sweeps and arpeggios immediately feel more natural. My 7-string is currently tuned to drop G (d,A,F,C,g,D,G). With a 25.5" scale the best gauges are .010,.014,.019,.028,.039,.056, and .074 if you want a good middle ground between tight strings and bendability. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

    I tried to install an .026 Wound as a D string But THE STRING IS TOO SHORT--- That means of 21 strings purchased, the.018W , .024W ,.26W 032W 036W and.042W strings can only
    be used as LOW E or G. My Guitar is an Epiphone Emperor Regent with a frequensator tail piece. All of these strings are WORTHLESS. I'd like a refund.

      Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Wound Single Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

      I like to make my own custom sets of strings and Musicians Friend has the largest selection of single Ernie Ball strings at the best price.

      Coated strings are ok, but I find you always lose some tone with Electric Guitar and coated strings, specifically some shimmer. The regular Ernie Ball strings sound great and last a long time, especially if you clean the strings after each use with something like Fast Fret or another string cleaner.

        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.

            Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Wound Single Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

            Step one, buy a set of your favorite strings. Step two, replace the G string with a wound 18 from Ernie Ball. Step three, enjoy the sound! I use nickel wound 9's on my single coil strat. I use pure nickel on my humbucker strat copy-two of which are single coil size. Great improvement on both guitars. This wound string bends the same or easier than any string I've tried , from a 14 to 17 unwound, and is more comfortable on my fingers. If your tired of the dull, strange sound of your G string, give these a try.

              Ernie ball has great tone, and keeps its intonation for the life of the string. Have not used anything else in at least 20 years.

                I played D'addario strings for the first 10 years I played guitar, then about 4 years ago I decided to take a shot at making a custom gauge set specifically for my guitar. Ernie ball strings are easier to find individually so I changed brands. I can't even begin to describe how much of a difference it makes having consistently ascending string tensions across the fretboard on my 7-string (~21 lbs at low end to ~13 lbs at high end) especially for fast players. Sweeps and arpeggios immediately feel more natural. My 7-string is currently tuned to drop G (d,A,F,C,g,D,G). With a 25.5" scale the best gauges are .010,.014,.019,.028,.039,.056, and .074 if you want a good middle ground between tight strings and bendability. Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed.

                    I always like the sound and feel of a wound third on my electric guitars. They just sound better and stay in tune better, especially if you play a lot of chords.

                      I tried to install an .026 Wound as a D string But THE STRING IS TOO SHORT--- That means of 21 strings purchased, the.018W , .024W ,.26W 032W 036W and.042W strings can only
                      be used as LOW E or G. My Guitar is an Epiphone Emperor Regent with a frequensator tail piece. All of these strings are WORTHLESS. I'd like a refund.

                      Ernie Ball Strings

                      Comments about Ernie Ball Nickel Wound Single Guitar Strings 3-Pack:

                      I use 10-46 strings and replace the plain 18 with a 18w, just my preference.
                      I have used these for decads.
                      Very good quality.
                      Great value for the price.
