    Best cords on which I played, I do not use it after trying several manufacturers (like electric acoustic). they are really brings out the qualities of a good guitar, I particularly like the consistency of his bass. when the most high strings, strength allows them to bully fun and carefree try the bends of three tones and a half!
    in short, very good string, a good playing comfort and lasting good life, rich enough in general sounds and good consistency

    These are exactly the ropes I needed a long time and I do not know! I use them in normal tuning.
    I used to use Dean Markley Hendrix .11-.52 and doing some shopping on eBay USA, I saw by chance that a trader sold Ernie Ball Beefy Slinky twelve games a Price interesting. I thought that, for the same metals, .11-.54, was not to be a harder and just be a good deal. However, I do not seen the floor ... .22
    For me these strings are a miracle my sound has never been so much punch.
    As in acoustics, I play on .13-.56, I n'prouve no difficulty pulling adapt it bends and pose no problem.
    The must is that they come back to me 3.66 / game TTC.

    It's been 2-3 years.

    No I recovered the guitar with this choice of strings.

    The sound is well balanced rendering good enough, it's that if you change strings that perceives a difference (eg. In relation to the Elixir Light 10/46 cf my view it)

    The harmonic rendering is average and the friction of the finger too Introduced in corrlation no doubt.

    Affordable price 8.50 (Elixir is 2 times more expensive !!!)
    So essentially sound rsultat infrieur Elixir half price, you can not have it all !!!!

    I do not think the choice again, I'll try to find an intermediary model with the sound qualities of the Elixir but with a lower price as the desti- nations most recently sries Fender......

    I use this set of strings for 3 years now, as a rhythm guitarist. I used for 2 and a half years of ernie ball 10-46, but double c'tait worries I had (and still is) the one hand, high acidity in doights, Manire and strong enough to hit the strings (say energetic!), although I do rock or blues, the 11-48 was for me a veritable beneficial solution to my problem 'acidity in doights, and the fact that I hit the strings quite vehemently with mdiator.

    Durability of the game because 3 of 4 days per week repeats in just maintaining them fas frett, cloth for dcrassage chrome, you can hold 6 July easier months without pter wear a rope through it, and if you ever put the guitar to rest for several weeks imagine. See even more than a year is possible, it is my opinion, I mean having a big problem of acidity in doights. The best ratio quality price on the market I think, between 5.80 and 7 share with me, which is more than adequate for a set of strings, and more made in USA with a Canadian factory I believe.

    A balance to a rhythm between:

    - The 10-46 = too much light to the rhythm I think with hindsight, unless you put the guitar, just to redo your doights, solo and rhythm, also for beginners. Making small solos, yes even if you solo me other strings are much better. Some bluesmen used as the Derek Trucks (10-48), BB KING, Warren Haynes and others. Open Open note, I think any kind, blues, country, metal etc ...

    - The 11- 48 = the top for a powerful rhythm, warm, to bring out all the roundness of your bass, and lower your mdium mdium with acute thicker without Introduced be omnipresent , garish, acute soft. Limit for solos, but it is possible with the entranement, since this is not his first goal. This game was that of Angus Young for no anne evil in AC / DC Entran by his brother who used 12 53, for its ryhtmiques Gretsch and Gibson. He was also the game of a Rory Gallagher fans. Open blues note of Open Country, slightly less than 10-46.

    - 11-56 = the same thing with the 11-48, the game is slightly harder to not as a final, target chre least, that's the 11-48 , after asserts the I think they do not have a very big difference with 11-48. Some do it with the open why not, see the following sensitivities. Ditto for the solos. ditto for the note opens.

    - 12-53 = to the rhythm player warns, express very thick, suitable for only a rhythmic big, heavy, heavy, powerful charged at low, low mdium, mdium sweet, although acute Introduced less than the prcedants. These are the strings of the Angus Malcolm Young brother in AC / DC. May be suitable for jazzmen also in that time the net flat. Forget any clear idea of ​​solo rock / blues / metal etc, you will not I think! Open note I shall not venture if I had this game on my guitar. Besides, I think some guitars accept more or less easily it aprsrquilibrage playing the instrument to a professional. To you therefore fill in a pro for this.

    For soloists: 9-42 is a very good compromise, I'm not a soloist, but many soloist on this game on their guitar, available in bronze version and normal view according to your means, your sensitivity. This is the set of strings currently Angus Young, Jimmy Page from years 60. There is also a hybrid version which is a priori not bad, so see for soloists. For what I've seen, small rhythmic rock, blues fairly lightweight, Jazz also, for soloists is fantastic, the bends are standard with this type of game, ssayer for soloists .dropoff window This is clearly not a rhythm game in me for me, lack of rhythmic body power compared to 11-48.

    Pros: best ratio quality price for the guitar rhythm
    solidity has nothing to envy the elixir Addario and others. I speak knowingly of my worries acidity.
    Very well also for the hands of medium size, small doights!

    The -: be careful not to overtighten like crazy when you change the string, otherwise it's broken ensures, when you reach the desired notes in standard tuning is good, and is a little prs tense is nickel, do not go away (it's worth also for auto-disable mcaniques having both in my possession, I know!)

    Yes I do it again this choice, I redo this choice now, every time I entirely change a set of strings for example, voil good very good set of strings, perfect for my little doights, and my hand rather t average (who rapprocherai an Angus Young for you Imagez the thing! lol!)

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    What I like least nothing really.
    What I like the most reliable since they review the packaging, the touch, the sound in distortion for both riffs to the solos, although it very quickly lose their visual brightness (but this is very important) especially if you have a sweating acid which is my case, but the sound is excellent and long if you clean the strings after playing, I personally preferred the sound rather than visual appearance ;)
    How would you rate the quality / price?
    The value for money is in my opinion a great from the moment they control batch and on the internet.
    With experience, you do again this choice?
    Without any hesitation they sound much my game and my sound.

  • Perfectly satisfied, why look elsewhere for more money?

    Used for ten years.
    Equipent my 3 guitars (Fender Mex Strat Squier Series 95, G & L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carved Top and Tele Deluxe '74).
    Never disappointed (though I play every day, and I'm not soft ^ ^).
    I tried a few years ago other models without being overwhelmed by the competition.
    It is true that these relatively strings lose their shine, but I do not count on my set of strings to give me the same brightness, but on my microphone or my amp so I did not worry to detail.
    I find the quality report - more honest price.
    I remake that choice again without hesitation!
  • New Strings Make All the Difference

    I have been playing Ernie Ball regular slinky strings for more than 10 years. I typically change the strings on my electric guitar once a month, or even more often if I am recording. Probably the biggest tip I can give someone that is either new to playing the guitar, or is looking for a simple way to improve the tone of their guitar - change the strings. I know too many people that never change their strings until something breaks. This is the easiest way to insure that your guitar sounds dull and lifeless until the next time your strings break.

    I have been playing Ernie Ball regular slinky strings for more than 10 years. I typically change the strings on my electric guitar once a month, or even more often if I am recording. Probably the biggest tip I can give someone that is either new to playing the guitar, or is looking for a simple way to improve the tone of their guitar - change the strings. I know too many people that never change their strings until something breaks. This is the easiest way to insure that your guitar sounds dull and lifeless until the next time your strings break. The Ernie Ball slinky strings are the cheapest way to keep your guitar sounding good. Every time you put a new set on your guitar will sound much better than when it old strings with dirt and grime all over them. The main thing is that all the dirt and grime changes the physics of how your strings vibrate. When the strings can't vibrate properly, you are going to lose tone. Therefore, change your strings and clean them whenever you play.
    The only downside of these strings is that they don't hold their tone for very long. As soon as you put them on, they sound great. However, after about 5-10 hours of play time, they really start to sound dull. I guess you get what you pay for. There are more expensive strings that hold their tone for longer. Pretty much if you pay more money then you won't have to change the strings as often. With these strings, they are super cheap. I typically buy them in packs of 10 sets. But then you have to change the strings over and over again. This is a little bit of a hassle. I have recently tried out the new Ernie Ball Cobalt strings. I honestly don't think they sound better than the Regular Slinky strings, but I am hoping they hold their tone for longer. All this to say, the regular slinky strings sound great. As long as you are willing to change your strings often, then these are the way to go.
