My Guitar Harem is kinda big, at 65 Pcs+/- ,and they all get played, so they need me to keep a bunch of string sets on hand. I buy these 10 to 20 packs at a time for my Guitar Harem. They are a good string that is easy on my wallet, and that is important on both counts. If you have a Harem of Guitars, I highly recommend these, and you should get them in bundles of 10 packs at a time,

I'm not that picky about strings, I've tried so many brands over the years and while they do vary a bit most everything I've tried has been more or less ok. so I figured I would give these a shot. at the price i couldn't go wrong, right? WOW - i'm a little picky about strings now. these are crrrap! even at 50% off the already low price, still crrap.

First impressions was the 4th/D string has A LOT of friction. A LOT. Like the wire wound around the string is sharper that usual. Very noticeable and off-putting. has a sand paper feel to it when you slide up and down the string.

The tension on many of the strings felt "off" too. It felt wrong enough to my fingers that I actually measured the strings with a digital caliper and found that only the 2nd/B and 3rd/G strings were the correct gauge. 4 out of 6 strings didn't measure up! i.e. the strings are not the size specified on the packaging. uutf??

so, yeah, you save a tiny bit of dough. but for what? i was swayed by all the positive reviews on here but i will not be buying them again. If you were on the fence about getting a set of Ernie Balls or two sets of these I hope this rant saves you the trouble :)

    They sound just fine! They are cheap ($$) but not cheap (quality). !I trust them! I've played with TERRIBLE strings before...these are solid.

          I use these on a regular basis. I've not broken one and haven't found any that where bad. These are good strings for the price. I have been an Ernie Ball user for many years. I don't record or play out a great deal anymore. These aren't bad strings for what I do. If I did record and play out like I once did I would most likely use these for my practice strings to save money.

              Only complaint is sometimes these Musicians Gear strings sometimes are a little dirty, but I always use string cleaner after I put them on and again after I play to extend life of strings.
