Feel and sound amazing!
Dutchy-, 04.06.2021
I'm a beginner, so I don't have much knowledge on how different strings play, but these are great for my use. Seems to be good for everyone with how many people use these strings, they must be bestsellers for a reason!

After putting these strings on I noticed a huge improvement from the strings that were already on the guitar, they actually felt a slight bit easier to play in my limit experience. They sound much nicer too, quite a bright sounding set of strings. I can't attest to how long they last, seems to vary person to person. A decent amount of people seem to think they last a while, even after the bright sound is gone, they still play and feel good. Again, I can't say much about that as of yet.

They're perfect for me though, and they're well priced. If you aren't a huge fan of brighter tones I would suggest trying other strings, but they're so affordable you may as well try them out anyway! I'd highly recommend!

Ernie Ball are the best guitar strings there are
danstabwoi, 01.04.2018
Never had a problem with these. No fuss and no nonsense?they just work. My Les Paul and my Strat sound amazing whenever newly strung with them, and they feel awesome to bend on.

That tone, of course, doesn't last long if you're playing 2-3 hours or more per day, but I find with Ernie Ball they actually also sound good as they age and wear out. Different, but good, which is why I choose them. With other strings I've tried they really sound dull after a week.

The ability to customise your gauge by buying individual strings is a brilliant plus also with these. I could not get my SG to tune to C sharp with the readily available gauge sets I found on the net. With Ernie Ball I could customise my third string to work properly and intonate well and bend properly.

Recommended.

The Mutts Nuts!
Woodwork Barn, 17.10.2017
These are the only strings I buy these days. Have tried a few other brands in the distant past but have always come back to EB's. Reliability, consistency, longevity, versatility, feel and tone all score 10/10 and at a price that's hard to beat. As with most strings they are too bright when brand new but they do settle in very quickly, and if lightly stretched when first fitted, tune easily and hold it well. After 35 years of playing, hopefully I should be a reasonable judge!

Go for it
Mr. Crowley, 06.01.2018
I use exclusively Ernie Ball strings. This gauge goes on my shorter scale length guitar (24,75 inches). On this guitar, they handle downtuning pretty well, and also bend well. I've had them sound and look fresh for up to two months. I also like the fact, that each strings has its individual paper package - they are not tied together. This makes unpacking and unwinding much easier and causes less damage. The price is unbeatable.
However, for longer scale guitars, I would recommend using the 9-46 set.
