    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 Supe…

    How long have you use it?
    Since I play guitar then 16 years, I was used on a lot of guitars and microphones assets and liabilities I never been disappointed configurations.
    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    Not when I start playing the guitar I was adopted on without knowing what they were worth, but of course I was attracted by their advertising and countless recognized guitarist who used them, which m has not help trying other brands eventually example (D'Addario, Elixir, etc ...) but I remain faithful to my Ernie Ball for their excellent quality / price ratio.

    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

    Ernie Ball Nickel Wound Electric Slinky 6-StringPublished on 02/25/13 at 11:17
    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…

    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.

    I use the strings on my guitar, I love drawing and this one is well suited to my budget. There is of course much better but they will have a lifetime of correct (with maintenance), its level not hear a big difference with other brand (along with my ear ...)
    I like my budget but also Elexir less, and then I like Ernie Ball pockets :-)
