Before I discovered this brand and Musician's Friend, I used a number of well known brands for my personal guitars, and those I repaired. I broke the high E so often just trying to get it in tune the first time, I had to buy high E strings in bulk instead of part of a set. Now, that never happens with new strings, and I rarely break one even after some use and abuse. Sure, they'll lose their brightness after a while, but sometimes that works, they mellow with age. That sound is good too, depending on what you like of course. Get the right gauge and install them properly, you won't often get any problems out of these strings. Now, once in a great while you will encounter some that didn't leave the factory just exactly right, but it actually happens less with this brand than some well known brands that shall go unnamed, because I don't want sued.
I repair guitars, so I've tried about every brand out there. These are tops in my book, especially when you consider the low price. Frankly though don't let the price fool you, these are better than many of the name brands in many ways.
These are top quality, regardless of the low price. I do not break the high E strings like I often do with other brands. Once broken in, they stay in tune or very nearly in tune nicely. They wear long, have a nice tone even when not amplified, and do wonders when you crank it up. If you have any problems with these strings, you either picked the wrong gauge for your style, or you're not installing them properly.
It's not often you find a great deal like this, most would pass these by simply because they cost way less than the better known brands, that would be a big mistake. Frankly, other than choosing different string gauges for different purposes, I no longer use any other brand of steel strings, unless somebody gives me a set to put on their guitar, even then I try to talk them out of that, these are better than most, as good as any.

I bought several of these sets to try them out. So far, out of the 3 sets (.009's)I've tried, the little E has come unwrapped at the ball end on 2 sets. I won't be buying anymore of these. Aside from this problem, they sounded good, and had no other problems. It's back to Fender strings for me. Never had a problem with the Fenders.

          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.

                The only subjective downside to these strings is that they can sound a little brittle during first use. An hour of play later and they sound much like D'Addario strings. They last a fairly long time before they start to go dead and 'thud' and they sound brighter than Ernie Ball Slinky strings. All in all they are a great deal to get and have a couple sets around for practice, backup or live shows. They are consistent in that they feel and sound the same from pack to pack and each restring.

                    Picked up six sets of these strings, .009s, as I set out to clean and restring a few Fender and Gibson guitars. I was on a tight budget and found these being offered at a ridiculously low price! They are excellent strings that tune and intonate quickly and feel great. At this price, everyone should pick up a few sets, maybe in different sizes so you can experiment, just to check them out. I will certainly buy these strings again. Recommended!
