Wanting to do me a small stock of strings (10-52) for not too much, I look on the internet and fall on the ropes at an unbeatable price (less than U.S. $ 3 at the time). Nuno Bettencourt Signature, I think they must ensure a minimum, so I take a good supply (10 packets - at this price!).
Firstly, the first surprise: it's light enough 10-52 (10/13/17/28/38/52), compared with Ernie Ball (10/13/17/30/42/52) the strings are a little behind. Well, why not!
After three months without breaking a single rope (it was not envy that wanting to try new yet), I decided to change everything for them.
And now the drama!
It sounds bad, but really. A metallic, robotic, cold, I do not know what to call it. But it does not really want to play.
And now, after only a fortnight (without having played really intensely over either ... Say a 20aine hours to break everything), while the sound starts to be a little more "natural" ... BOING! A rope minus (D 28). Well, it must be my fault, I change the string.
2 days later, it was the turn of the A (38) to get the beautiful!
Very honestly, at this rate, I would have done better to buy only one set of "real" strings, it would have taken longer ... !
In short, to escape at any cost, very low quality, bad sound, life ridiculous ...
Instead, try Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom, it's been years since I used it, and no trouble with, even if they are much more expensive. But there is no secret, we have the quality that goes with the price.
