3 of these strings broke on me in one performance... yes 3. (High E, D and A). I usually put on fresh strings for the practice before a gig to stretch them out. Since I had two gigs in a row with no practice in between, I did not change them this time. Big mistake. I will never buy this brand again. I wish I could get a refund on my 10 pack.

        Comments about Musician's Gear Electric Nickel Plated Steel Guitar Strings 10-46 - 10-Pack:

        I have been playing 40-plus years. I played semi-professionally in my early years, and have played at various levels since then. I am currently in a "Bar Band", which plays five or six times a year, if we can get the work. I play rhythm, mostly, and just a bit of lead. If I have a complaint, I would say the don't bend like the pricier strings. Although by now, I am used to them and don't notice. But, I use 10's, which is a personal preference for the tone I'm after and my style of play. So, a lighter gauge would probably be better for a true shredder who bends a lot more than I do. I started using these strings about two years ago, based on price and the comments on MF. I have not been disappointed. They stay in tune and last as long, (for my needs) as the name brand strings I used to play. I have always considered myself to be "heavy handed", but, I've never really had problems with strings of any brand breaking. I don't change strings often, yet, I have NEVER broken one of these. I would buy a set. The price alone justifies a try, and if they're not up to your standards, you haven't lost much, if they are, you've found an inexpensive addition to your set-up.

          I've been playing over 40 years and now play in a "semi-pro garage band". I've been using Musician's Friend private label strings on my guitars for the last tens years or so. In my opinion they are as good as anything else out there and the price is right.

                    I normally use Fender 10s (150s or 250s) or GHS Boomers; but I couldn't pass up the price here. I'm a hobbyist on guitar playing a couple hours a day, so I'm not very picky about strings. I can get 3-4 weeks out of a set of strings. These are very good strings. They sound bright and crisp. Not as warm sounding as Fenders, but that's not a deal breaker. They stay in tune fine once they come into their own settling into the nut after a couple days. I had to stretch these a bit more than other strings as the G kept staying rather flat. Once stretched out they stay in tune quite well. I'm very pleased!

                              I've used Ernie Ball 2221 Regular Slinky (10-46) strings for 20 years on all of my electric guitar. Because of the price savings, I decided to try these stings. Changing strings every month or so can over time get expensive. To me the tone is fine, but the string feels stiff when bending. Next time I'll try the 9-42. Hopefully they will feel more "slinky."

                                These strings are great if restringing often, or building guitars. They feel a bit more rigid than Slinky's, but overall they are fine. Really great for working musicians on a budget!
