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.

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

I run a repair shop and primarily do stainless steel refrets. These strings have caused problems more than once with intonation and buzzing. I still use them for diagnosis and during repairs. Then they go in the trash can and I put quality strings on. They are just low end poorly made strings. I would not perform with them unless that is all I had. And never leave them on a customers guitar.

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

    Been playing pro for 50 years, I have played all the name brands, including a few that don't exist any more. All strings have a feel of there own, Roto Sound or DR's for example seem to have more tension. I.E. 10's feel more like an 11 when compared to Ernie Ball, Fender, SIT, D'adario, Etc. These particular strings seem to have a lighter feel, which I personally like. The tone is very well balanced as far as I can tell. You can't beat the price, I have not bought strings for this kind of money since the late 60's-early 70's.. Just switched over to these strings on my Les Paul and Tele. I only have about 4 to 5 hrs. playing time on both guitars, so as far as longevity it's to early to tell.. I'll be happy to get 20 hrs. out of them. That's usually the average between changes for me. If they make it that far without breaking or going dead I'll be very well pleased.. I'm hoping they make it that far, and I'm going to assume they will so I'm giving them 5 stars right off the bat.. I hope they don't let me down!!

          Don't buy these for a Bigsby equipped guitar. The D and G strings aren't long enough. Otherwise they don't seem too bad.

              Okay, I was one of the nay-sayers as well until I tried these strings. Have used many, but I have enjoyed the 10-46 set very much and do not see any difference in sound from a second guitar with super-expensive strings-on. Give these a try because I agree with another commenter: "I may even change my strings more often because of the low cost!"

                    great strings similar to d'addarios. I always have backup strings, rarely to they break, and it is usually my fault, not the strings...

                            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.
