    Put the strings on my $99. special and what a difference. I could not believe it was the same guitar. Made it sound like a much higher priced guitar. Buying more for my other guitar.

              I've been using these for a few years now, they sound great. The 11 gauge are my favorite, (talking to novice players) If you can use the 11s you should, they'll bring any guitar to life. You will get use to them over time, and bending will get easier. I'm not a very fast player, and I do a lot of bending. These strings cut through and have a very clean, crisp feel. Great for power chords.They're great strings, high qaulity.

                        Wow! I have a 54 year old Harmony Roy Smeck H56 with a Lace Gold p/u. These strings sound better than any I have used on it. The stay tuned and hold up well. The tone is great for the variety of stuff I play and the style (thumb and finger). They are well worth the extra cost. I have used about every brand and type of strings over the years and believe that the strings are where your sound starts. They are the best I have used.

                            I used these strings on my Epiphone Les Paul 100, which is one of the cheaper Les Pauls out there. And the tone of the guitar instantly improved. The strings added a lot of clarity to my guitar. It almost made my Les Paul 100 sound like the Gibsons that I have played. I would really recommend this to any player that has an Epiphone guitar.

                            I didn't know what kind of sound to expect when I bought these strings because I had never used pure nickle before. Slapped them on my LP and they sound terrific (like all gibson strings). They have a really dark, mellow, chimmy kind of sound. I like them a lot. I gave it a 4.0 for quality though cause I was trying to tune my high-e a full step up and the ball end of the string broke off. Oh well, I'm buying em again.

                            I've gone through about 3 sets of these this year. I like em'. They aren't the best playing strings due to the gauge of them, but they sound pretty good, and they will get your hand in good shape if you decide to use a smaller gauge later on. They have a really thick meaty tone that works good for blues and rock, and leads up high sound pretty good through them. They aren't super sharp sounding, so they might not make the best metal strings. The vacuum-packedness makes a difference I think, as I've never had one break on my while I was just stringing up, like I've had happen with Power Slinkies.

                            I have an Epiphone '56 Gold Top, and I used to think that I was getting the best tone out of it with Power Slinkys, but I was getting tired of strings already being slightly corroded when I took them out of the package. I began looking for a new string, I almost bought some stainless steel Power Slinkys hoping they'd actually be stainless, but then I saw that these strings were vacuum packed. That was the main selling point for me. I ordered six sets of them and hoped they'd be good. When I finally got them I changed my strings and started playing along with my Jimmy Eat World DVD. The tone was absolutely amazing, they made my Epiphone sound as good as the Gibsons that the band was using. Not only that, but I was happy to see that none of the plain strings had any corrosion on them, and the sixth string is slightly thicker than in the Power Slinky set, making my drop D tuning sound alot better. When it comes to strings, I won't settle for anything less than Gibsons from now on.

                            I love these strings. Excellent for jazz/blues on a gibson hollow-body (I play an ES137). Good tone, smooth feel. Good idea to use Gibson string cleaner/lubricant to keep them in good playing condition longer.
