I build solid body guitars & have been using these strings for 6 years. I also play music in church worship group & find these string to bee as good as any other string.I find that when I change my strings I do DO NOT have to reset the intonation. I also build Pedal Steel Guitars.My guitar name is Danford Guitars.

A while back, I needed a quick, cheap pair of guitar strings to replace the ones I'd been using, I believe a set of light D'addarios. I was pretty short on funds, so I hadn't replaced them in months, and opted for these as a way of saving a bit of money, but still improving my tone. No matter how cheap these strings were, absolutely anything should sound better than the time-worn pair, right?

Sadly, the second I put these on, I felt an instant sense of regret. They were a bit brighter, sure, but in a cheap, noticeably tinny way--really more dull and high than anything. To me, they sound pretty close (maybe worse) than the factory strings on most guitars.

And just like factory strings, that isn't to say they're useless. After a fair amount of adjusting to amp and pickup settings, they can definitely approach par, and in a pinch, I'm sure they'd do fine. Just don't kid yourself into thinking you won't notice the drop in quality. They seem more meant to get you by than anything.

          I've been playing for over 40 years and these strings are as good as any I've used. They last a long time but are so inexpensive that I can change them more often. These are no doubt the same strings that are being sold under other names for 3-4 times the price.

          Great strings overall. In 6 sets I had 1 that broke as I was putting them on, but I chalked it up as a fluke. I'm not kind to strings, and the 10's that I got took plenty of abuse. Nice and brite, but not overdone. I suspect these are probably wound by some other brand and sold with generic branding as is common but the value factor wins in this case. I'll use them again.

          Comments about Musician's Gear Electric 10 Nickel Plated Steel Guitar Strings:

          I use these all the time. MF says they are made by a major manufacturer. I believe it. I put them on newly sold guitars for free. You can't beat the cost. Both sizes work well. I have several electrics so I use plenty for little expense. They're great for a spare set in the case. I especially like the sealed package they come in. The string remains fresh and untarnished, unlike some more expensive brands. I only wish this brand had size 11's too!

            Comments about Musician's Gear Electric 10 Nickel Plated Steel Guitar Strings:

            When these strings first appeared on the market I had to try them. I was impressed the very first time I played them. They sound really nice and feel really good. For me, they seem to last about ten weeks max if I'm just practicing. I tried them on a few short session gigs and they lasted about the same as the big name brand strings... About two weeks. I can't really say anything bad about them at all. As long as they keep selling at such a reasonable price, I will stock up on them.

              They last as long as nickel wound name brand strings. Un beatable price. I always carry a spare set or two in my gig bag.

                  I use these strings in 10's and 9's and both are plenty good for practice and jamming with students. I can keep students in strings at a Bargin price.

                    I've been using these Musician's Gear strings for several years on my Carvin electrics and my Guild dreadnaught that I bought new in 1975. Sure, they're not the finest sounding strings ever made, and I don't use them for recording, but they sound good. And c'mon. You're playing in a noisy bar, or even a mellow coffeehouse. Find one person in an audience, ever in your lifetime, who's going to hear the difference between one set of strings and another. On that stage, are YOU really gonna hear a difference? I don't. They don't break, they hold tune, they sound good enough for about any live situation.
