cheap and they work
Xico Jorge , 19.04.2018
these are probably the cheapest strings you'll ever buy they do the job, break more of often and sound worst then the good ones but if you're on a very, very, very, very tight budget these are a good option

Five of six strings have been good
Lindroos, 06.04.2018
I put a set of these strings on my Cort Evl Z4 and all and all they've sounded great. However, the first string (high E-string, thinnest string) snapped when I was changing them from the last set. As I bought these strings as a test because of the price, I'm still satisfied with the overall quality of the strings. They have had a good ring to them the couple of months I've had them (together with an Ernie Ball E-1) and I think I'm going to buy a few sets to have as backup for a rainy day. But I will also buy a few E-1 strings from another brand..

Does the job.
strumpick, 17.05.2018
I have the odd set of these as spares in the past, but I mainly use within education to restring students guitars. I have used them on a pro gig and they are fine, tuning, intonation wise, and the price is great.
If your on a budget and need strings then the HB range is for you.

I went back to ernie ball
Jakob4201, 20.02.2014
I didn´t like those strings.
The sound was okay, maybe a little less bright than ernie balls or d´addarios, but not dramatically.
The Harley Bentons didn´t last long at all. My hands are pretty sweaty, so I have to change the strings often anyway, but the value strings were even faster rusty than the ones from other manufacturers.
But the biggest problem for me was the feeling. Those just feel different than more expensive strings. It´s hard to describe, but I would say they are kind of sticky.
If you can afford it, get more expensive strings.

These are fine so long as you change them often
Eugene M., 19.12.2017
Ok strings if you change them often but they are prone to snapping, I do not normally break strings during performance but I do sometimes using these

Don't expect special!
Peter154, 17.06.2013
I couldn't believe the price of these strings when I first came across the Thomann site. They are almost as cheap as plectrums - that's for the set of six. If you're a frequent string breaker these are great to keep as spares for that hasty mid-gig string replacement. They are just OK to get you by. Wonderful option.

ok but no more
Stefan E. 2, 18.10.2013
Fairly ok strings, no problems at all, but no high quality strings. For the price though they are a bargin, especially if you are unsure of what gague you'd like. Get a few of these to try out.

Not real great
Angelus502, 10.05.2015
Tarnished out of the pack, a bit too much stretch when new. Spend an extra few dollars on D'addario's they'll sound better and last longer.

OK for spares, Magnum Les Paul Gold Tops, rabbit traps, or if you work as a hit man ;)

Actually I did throw a set on guitar I was doing pickup magnet swap/mods to and knew they'd be on and off the guitar a few of times while I tried things out, they were perfect for this. I put better stings on once everything was sorted.

They're strings, they're ok.

Great to have around in case you need a back up set.

Value strings
03.06.2015
I bought a box of these strings mainly to keep as spares in my teaching studio in case pupils needed to change strings. The packaging is decent, cardboard sleeves in a plastic wallet, and each string is sealed in plastic. The ball-ends are solid metal pellets rather than traditional brass ball-ends. The strings themselves feel slightly less supple than normal sets, and there seemed to be some kind of light lubricant on them when taken out of the packet. Once fitted to a guitar they performed well, and stayed in tune after the standard few stretches. Sound wise, they appear ok, if unremarkable, given the price though, they are great value. Haven't had any strings breaking, so I'd recommend them as backup sets, or for use in schools or teaching studios.

Used for cajon strings. Worked well.
Sticks&Licks, 07.06.2016
I used these strings on my cajon after breaking the previous strings. They did the job well, although they did break quite quickly. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Harley Benton Valuestrings 009
Camelia, 15.05.2013
Best quality-price ecuation on the market! They behave like new strings at least a week, but they are so cheap that you can afford to change them daily. They are ideal stuff for rehearsal, when the sweat of the fingers is inevitable and quickly runs out the initial quality of the strings.

Outstanding value
Robert281, 04.06.2013
These are not the greatest strings in the world. There are better strings out there. However, there is nothing wrong with them at all. They sound pretty good and hold their tuning well. And then just look what you paid for them. Bargain!!

Ok replacement strings
Mel6791, 26.02.2014
I ordered these strings just for backup in case one of the strings on my guitar breaks and I don't have a set of my favourite strings near.

The sound is okay for that price, but if you're looking for a decent tone and a long lifetime, other strings are a better option

good value
Harj, 03.06.2013
For roughly 80p a set you can't go wrong. 'They' say you should change your strings every two weeks and before every gig/recording session anyway, if your paying £5/6 for a set that will get very expensive.

I have used most of the other famous brands of strings and can't tell a massive difference, strings sound best, or 'brightest' new anyway, and at this price you can afford to have the new sound more often.

The only minor criticism i have is that they were a little bit 'gunky/grimey', but i have had other, much more expensive strings that suffered from the same problem.

I've played on bad strings, the ones that feel like they're cutting the fleshy parts of your fingers, death by a thousand subtle/implied cuts; but these are not them. They are good quality and playable, for the price you cant go wrong.
