I've been using these strings exclusively for over 10 years. I buy 30 sets when I make a purchase. I use them when I perform and record and change them before hand so they are fresh. They sound like they are brand new every time I use them because they are. Whoever heard of trying to make a set of strings last a month and expect them to be all bright and shiny at the end of it. I know that's never worked for me and I'm no hack. I'm a banging, strumming, plucking feedback hound. What's the best way to get a good full tonal feedback and not some scratchy garbage? New strings! You can't get that kind of effect from a rope. Give someone 2 guitars with 2 different brand of strings of the same gauge and they'll be hard pressed to tell you one from the other. These are good strings. They sound good. They don't break. You can change them often and the price is absolutely right. One recommendation: I would like to see them available in 11's because if you set up your Floyd Rose correctly it will stay in tune better, sound better with 11's and you won't be able to tell the difference in the tension.
1. First of all, nickel is considered corrosion-resistant which is why it was originally used for plating metals such as iron and brass and is used in certain alloys so that they will retain a high silvery polish; and, it is still used for corrosion-resistant pure-nickel plating. What does this mean? Clean your guitars and wipe down your strings when you've finished playing or your finger will turn colors no matter what brand of strings you use.

2. No string just breaks! If it does and or keeps on breaking then you need to put a file on your machine head, run some graphite in your bone or get a new one because it's cut too deep already and or, run a small buffer wheel from a Dremel over the saddles and get the kinks out so they won't cut.
Good and constant quality. If your strings are sounding flat, try placing your thumb in the middle of the back of the neck and adjust your strap so your guitar isn't around your knees like your underwear.
The reviews I've read only prove that we can complain about anything regardless of the fact. As for value, they cannot be beat. I give them an overall value of 9 because I'm sure there are viable reasons why some strings are better than others and or these in particular.

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 :)

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

    I own 13 electric guitars . . . five Gibson LP's, three SG's, a Fender American Strat, an Ibanez RG440 & RG420, a Schecter C1 Platinum, Charvel Desolation SK1 , and a Takamine acoustic. Needless to say I change strings frequently. I have been using Ernie Ball 9's or 10's. I saw these while browsing and they are very comparable with any strings that I have used over the last 31 years of playing.

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

        These are decent strings for the price. My only "issue" is a small one...
        The number 1 and 2 strings are a little bit short for my preference.
        I like to have extra winds around the posts for the thinner strings, and these barely allow two or three winds (especially on a 6 in line headstock). Otherwise, they are a good value for a practice or backup guitar.

                    I've tried a variety of guitar strings, and no one in an audience is ever going to hear the difference between brands. However, they will notice the difference between, say, 3 day old strings and 3 month old strings. With this brand, you can afford to change strings more or less as often as you need to.
