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.

Comments about Musician's Gear Electric 9 Nickel Plated Steel Guitar Strings:

I know I'll get poo-hoo'ed, but, until you hit much higher priced specialized/fancy strings I really don't see where these strings are any worse than the other brands out there. I've use many brands of strings and the simple fact is I really don't see the big quality difference. If I don't buy these I generally get D'Addario or Ernie Ball. But. let's be honest. No matter what strings you like or dis-like someone is going to agree with you and someone is going to disagree with you ;)

        I've used these for several years on over a dozen guitars. They sound, play and last as long as anything else out there... and for a fraction of the price.

          Comments about Musician's Gear Electric 9 Nickel Plated Steel Guitar Strings:

          I originally bought these strings to use in my repair shop, but found them to be better than I expected. I now use them on most of my own guitars as well! I say "most" because I've found them to be just a little too short to restring a Bigsby-equipped 3+3 headstock guitar. The high E's are jus long enough for 25.5" scale 6-in-lines as well, unless you want multiple wraps around the posts. If only they were 2-3 inches longer! Oh, well……nit-picking! Good strings that I intend to keep buying!

                Musician's Gear strings are a truly excellent value, and they're almost all I use anymore because of the financial woes of college. I used to use exclusively D'Addarios and these are just as good, but a good bit cheaper. Surprisingly, these are packaged better than many name brands as well, with individually wrapped strings in the box. I have had some problems with high E strings breaking but it's hard to say how much of that is my fault anyway. Overall an unbeatable value on decent but not incredible strings.

                  Strings for electrics are like aspirins: pretty much the same no matter what the label. There's no more reason to waste money on brand name strings than there is to waste money on brand name aspirins.

                    I was a big fan of Ernie Ball Super Slinkys. These strings are totally equal in performance. I've used several dozen sets in the last 10 years and I can't remember ever breaking one. Great tone and long life. Outstanding light gauge strings.
