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 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 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.

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

            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.

                As an owner/collector with more than 26 guitars and counting, changing strings on a regular basis can be expensive, I am an experienced player with many years of D'addario and Ernie Ball use, and even Fender and Gibson strings which I dislike. These strings are good enough, they feel good and sound good, nothing special just pure playing pleasure, at least for me they work just fine, for practice you can't beat the price, grab some today and try them yourself! many thanks to those reviewers who kindly recommended these, I am convinced now...!
                Cheers and Rock on!

                    This are great. I have 15 guitars and about 5 get used routinely (I play at church every week). The strings on the 5 in the core group get changed about every 2-3 months. These strings hold up just as well as the D'Adario, Balls, etc. For the price, I'm more likely to change strings sooner than later. In the past year that I've been using this there has been no string breakage or tuning issues that I would associate with strings. They seem to go dead at about the same time as the name brands (2-3 months). If you are a pro and change more often, these will definitely save you money in the long run without giving up quality. At least give them a try!

                    I've been playing over 40 years (yikes!)

                        Quality strings at a reasonable price. You may not have the name brand on the package but the contents are pure quality. Besides, no one sees the package, they only hear the tone. Try these out, you will be surprised by the quality for the price.

                        I put these strings on my Roadhouse Strat and my FSR Tele. Both guitars Rattled horribly. I took the strat to 4 different guitar shops to find out why it rattled so bad. It was setup perfect. My tele didn't rattle at all until I put these strings on it then it was terrible. When I switched to Fender super bullets the rattle was gone. Use as backups that is all they are good for!
