Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

I was drawn in by the extremely high price and by where they're made so I decided to try these once since they're as much as 3 packs of my usual. I found the wound strings to have a great feel and tone but pronounced that dreaded "fingertip scuff" sound louder than most new wound strings & the unwound strings have a gold-ish brass coating on the that gives it a concerning abrasive feel while bending. They've been on my 2007 American Strat now for a week and are bright, punchy & loud still feeling like new, however I'll not be buying these to re-string my entire guitar collection anytime soon. For me it was OK for a one time try, or just so you can tell your friends what you spent on one pack of strings ! ha

Absolute Control

By guitarlife 8l

from Northern Indiana

Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

If you want real control of your sound these are the strings you want. I use an American Strat alot on stage and haven't found any other string that sounds as good. At high volumes open notes sound clear and ring out in tune. Solos cut through the mix no matter how loud the stage mix is. Low volumes produce full and warm notes and chords. They last forever. Try 'em, you won't go back to what you are using now.

Top Grade Strings

By Stuarta

from Flag Pond, TN

Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

These are simply put the absolute best strings I have ever used. I do refer specifically to the Power Brights, as a couple of their other guitar string sets, appear to have rather short lives.The Power Brights on the other hand seem to maintain a fresh string tone, that seems to last for ages, and the strings are just great to play on.If you like them, I recommend setting up your intonation, this really brings out the quality of the strings

Thomastik Power Brights

By guitarstar6969

from PA

Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

Excellent tone and sustain! I have tried almost every string on the market and these are the best, by far! I love the feel of these strings. The only thing that keeps me from giving a straight 10 rate is they are a bit pricey. Thsy last a long time, so it is worth it.I don't care for the feel and tone of Elixers. Thomastik has a real winner here. When you consider that most orchestras in the world are using Thomastik, they know what they are doing.

    Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

    I was convinced to give a pack of power brights a try, and 10 years later, I'm still stringing all of my guitars with these. Nothing comes close to tone, longevity and superb clarity. I have busted a few, but less than other strings. They are too expensive, so I'm looking for a replacement, but everything else has just been a huge disappointment after playing with these. Great output, super easy bending, not likely to break, last forever! I love them. Lower the price though!!!

      These are the best. The life of the string transcends the cost. The tone quality stands out head and shoulders above other strings. I've used about all brands and these exceed the others by far. These will be my standbys and I recommend them to you. Have a great day!

      PowerBrights Are Spectacular !

      By ClanCameron

      from Croton. NY

      Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

      I've played all kinds of strings and I LOVE these PowerBrights. They are simply THE BEST electric strings I've ever heard/played. They truly do make a significant difference. I have a semi-hollow Ibanez with twin humbuckers and wanted a richer but brighter sound and these strings delivered big. Very lively audio response due to the Magnacore. Great playability. I've now got a UNIQUE new sound that I'm really proud of. Try 'em... that's all I can say. Hear for yourself.

      I just started using the 11's on my '64 Telecaster. Noticeable improvement in tone and sustain (play through a '62 Fender Pro).

      Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

      After going through Elixir, D'Addario, Gibson, Blue Steel, Ernie Ball, SIT, I haven't found strings I like better than the Power Brights. They last a long time, sound very well-balanced, have a nice decay and feel more natural and comfortable than Elixirs. Elixirs might be a better value by remaining consistent in tone for longer, but the high quality of the Thomastiks makes them well worth it, in my opinion.

      good strings

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

      you have to tune them every time you play at first. after putting them on, leaving them too tight overnight and pulling up on the string before tuning will help lessen this time period.be careful when pulling up that the high e string doesn't break, because these are only 9's, not tens which, honestly, are better.

      Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

      Thomastik-Infeld Power-Brights are awesome strings. I use them almost exclusively on my electric guitars. Play them once, you will love them! Their tone is great and they feel wonderful. However, they get dirty fast. When I don't have my power-brights, I play D'Addario. But I sure do miss them

      Comments about Thomastik PB109 Power-Brights Bottom Light Guitar Strings:

      I usually play on Ernie Ball Super Slinkies, but after I put this set of strings on, I doubt I'll go back. These strings have a really bright sound and sound really good dropped down a half step. The only problem I have with the strings now is that I need a new set. These strings are, by far, the best strings I've played on.
