Really nice

KarlC, 12.05.2018
Its 20 years since I put these on a strat, and man I missed them. Amazing strings, easy to adjust intonation down from 9s. Oh if you are using a strat and you find the G string won't intonate, you'll need to remove the string tree holding the G and D strings from the head stock and allow the strings to run freely to their pegs. Not the fault of the strings. I'd forgotten this happens as its 20 years since I set up a strat with 008s.

Beautiful sound, adjusted the settings a bit in my amp settings, so easy to play. That said I am a delicate player.

Light gauge strings ... pros and cons?

SusanM, 16.03.2016
I've always liked Ernie Ball strings ... I've tried other brands over the years but always find myself coming back to these.

I used a made up set for the past twenty year (gauges 009, 011, 014, 024, 032, 038) when I noticed a set of Extra Slinkies at a local store and thought that I'd give them a try and found them to be as nice to use ... oddly enough the 008 high E string felt a bit odd initially, but after about an hours use I got used to it and now use them on all of my guitars ... i.e. 21 and 22 fret Strats and an Ibanez Jem.

The worries I read about light gauge strings are unfounded in my view ... they are nice to use, string bending is far easier and on an electric guitar the gauge makes little difference. I have found nothing wrong at all with these at all ... for me they are the perfect fit.

Give them a try ...

Phil, England.

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