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.

            I have many guitars, and can be very costly to keep clean-bright strings on them all. I have used many types over the years-I'm 56- and have found these an exceptional value. I have used these for over a year now and Only broke one string ,pilot error, I was using a speed winder while not paying attension SNAP,

            I bend the Devil out of these and have never broken a single string while playing-bending them hard.

            I normally wait till they go on sale then buy 20 sets for thirty clams

              The strings are comparable to more expensive strings.....No use in spending more money if these sound great and last just as long

                As a former full time professional guitarist, I feel qualified to talk a little about musicians gear guitar strings. For the price, these strings are a bargain. I play an average of 20 hours a week, all of my guitars are strung with musician gear strings, 3 electrics (1 is a ghetto Fly and 1 has a Floyd Rose),an acoustic electric, and both of my basses. When I play a gig, which is rare these days, I often receive compliments on my tone. However, I am mostly impressed with how long I can play these strings until they start to unravel, ..oh, I play electric 6 strings with stainless steel pick. Bottom line, these strings kill for the price!!!

                    I use these strings on my backup guitars and beater guitars. I occasionally put them on my main guitars and I have been impressed with them. I use the .009s for 25.5" guitars(strat style) tuned standard and .010s for 25" and 24.75" tuned standard or 25.5" 1/2 step down.

                      I'VE BEEN USING THESE STRINGS FOR AWHILE NOW AND
                      SO FAR I'M HAPPY. AS A COLLECTOR WITH MANY GUITARS THE PRICE IS VERY ATTRACTIVE. AND AS A
                      GIGGING MUSICIAN I THINK THEY SOUND GOOD, AND
                      LAST. VERY HAPPY.

                            I only wish that they'll make them in light top and heavy bottom configuration, 9-11-16-26-36-46 for us heavier hitters! I like the winding is much better than more expensive brands.

                            I put a set of these on my grandson's el cheapo Squire until he gets a little older to justify spending a little more money and I was quite surprised. I've been playing almost forty years and along wih playing I also set up and do repair work. I have used almost every brand on the market, and you just can't beat the price. They sound and feel about like any Ernie Ball, D adario etc. Haven't had them long enough to comment on how how long they last, but hey look at how many you can buy.
