Works For Every Electric
AlexSaint, 03.01.2020
In the past, I never really cared that much what strings went on my guitars. As long as they were 10-52 gauge, they were fine. Now, I stick with these 9-42's.

Some strings have been a little too bright, hard to keep in tune, wore out quickly or have even had five strings in the pack instead of six.
I put a fresh set of these on my Floyd Rose-equipped Charvel and...

1. They maintain their tuning with negligible adjustment required (even with some heavy bends and big trem pulls).
2. Good tone - the new string brightness tempers down quickly and they last a good while before they start to sound a dull enough to change out.
3. They don't corrode easily - unless you have really acidic sweat or dirty hands, they'll last well.

These are so cheap, there's no excuse not to order multiple packs to ensure you always have a fresh set available.

Recommended.

If you don't want to complicate yourself...
SZapatero, 16.07.2018
These are the perfect strings if you just want the standard set, they don't have any corrosion protection but the tone is very good and I simply can't complain for the price. This set in particular would fit any fender Strat or Tele, as they were designed for this string caliber (0.09).

I've had this argument with many of my friends about getting a bit darker with time, and it's obvious that after one month the sound will degrade a bit, but I prefer to change my strings 3 times for less than 20 euros, and always have new strings, than to buy a single package of Elixir for the same price, that although they will last longer, they can't compete with a regular change of strings. If you complain that these strings are not so slippery as the protected ones, try with some conditioning oil for frets like 'Fast Fret', I use it every time I leave my guitar back in the case, it protects my strings and feel as nice as any other brand.

Overall, I've been using them for years and I've tried other brands too, but I would say that for this price range they're unbeatable, I'd recommend them to any musician from entry level to professional.

Good cheap strings
Mehto, 18.06.2020
Durable, great sounding string. After testing these out bought a dozen of these so that I can change them time to time and have that fresh string feel/sound every so often. Haven't manage to break any of these so I guess it's a good sign as well.

Have being using also Ernie Ball 2221 with gauges: 010-046 on one of my guitars at the same time and the sound to me is a bit beefier with them, but nothing special here. Good quality strings all the same that you can experience with

Very good
røde2nowhere, 16.07.2020
I like the packaging. Plastic on the outside to keep moisture at bay, with individual paper envelopes holding each string, with very clear marking showing the size of each string.
I'm not expert enough to speak to the nuance of sound quality and feel, but they do feel nice, and given that they are among the cheaper strings, I don't think there is anything to complain about.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
