Affordable quality strings
MarkLim, 10.02.2019
I put this strings on a Samick acoustic electric, and i did not notice any difference on my previous, more expensive strings.... Would highly recommend this.

Really good cheap strings
25.02.2016
I've purchased and used many sets of these strings down the years and haven't had a set that has let me down yet, be that at home practising or out gigging.
The strings aren't the best strings in the world, but they are also a very long way from being the worst. Upon unravelling them from their individual plastic wrapping, they stay a little curly (unlike big brand strings that straighten out), but once they're on the guitar and up to tension, all is fine. They feel a little funny (especially the unwound strings - they feel like they're coated in something) fresh out of the pack, however, this is nothing a spot of Fast Fret can't rectify. Fresh on, they're nice and bright and stay that way for quite some hours of playing. Under the fingers, they feel fine and in a way, slightly softer (a bit nylon-esque) to the touch than other brands.
All in all, really good 'no-frills' strings at a really good price.

Decent string to start with
Juri Hruska, 24.04.2019
I bought this strings for my guitar project set up. I used them to test new parts on the guitar. Played them for a week and them change them for better ones. For this purpose they are good. Otherwise they are incomparable with better strings. I replaced them with Elixir Nanoweb and the difference is massive. But so it is the price of these two sets.

Can't expect much
Stajmen, 10.07.2018
What these strings offer for the price is okay. I wouldn't use them professionally and on expensive instruments.
I use them on some cheap guitars I have just so i could have fresh strings and not spend a lot of money.

Reasonable
maslascher, 28.05.2018
You're not gonna get a good sound like with big brands for 5 euro but they are still getting job done. Quality wise is pretty much what should be expected. There shouldn't break as long as you're careful, especially with high e.

Perfect for practising long hours
Al8311, 23.11.2014
We all now how it feels to put on some new strings and after a while playing them, seeing they have almost wore out completely. It sucks, right?
Well, given their ridiculously low price, this strings are perfect for the average musician who doesn't need to sound killer while practising on the couch. They are also great for rehearsing many hours without worrying about their state. You play them and when they are dead, change them and you're rady to keep rocking. This way, you don't need to spend about six times more in a package of new Ernie Balls. Save those for showtime.
This strings are also great for those bands that gig reglarly. If you love the feel and sound of new strings each time you perform live, buy several of these and change them every time. You won't lose any money and this strings will give you perfect results, one gig at a time.

Nice product
TeoTzi, 21.12.2017
just thought to give a try on them. thin string set, good for unexperienced hands (pain is less) and the sound is decent. Can't complain, especially for that price

wow
Thor42, 05.07.2018
I genuinely cant tell the difference between these and the other main brands.
Ive knocked a star off because the packet isnt vacum sealed. and if i had to be critical the only thing i could think of is the ferrules arernt wrapped as tightly as a slinky would be.

These Strings are almost FREE!! :)
Mark463, 16.05.2013
I thought this was an error when I saw the price of these strings! Less than £1/1Euro for a full set of guitar strings? AMAZING!
They are pretty good quality too - not the very best tone or longest lasting - but at this price you really can't go wrong.
Especially if (like me) you have WAY too many guitars, restinging can be an expensive business - not any more!! :)
Very happy with these!

Very affordable and actually not that bad
17.11.2014
Extremely affordable strings. Sound and feel is OK, but they don't last very long. Maybe not the best quality strings, but they works just fine. I use these for practice and another brand for live performance and recording.

Great quality
place70, 07.12.2017
Worth the money, they tend to loose the sparkliness associated with new string very fast, but if you change them often as I do, they are great.

'Valuestrings' is the perfect name for these
01.08.2016
These strings are incredibly cheap, make no promises of excellence, but deliver a good product. They do feel cheap, and don't sound the best, but if you go through strings quickly or prefer that 'fresh-out-of-the-bag' feel then these may be a good, cost-effective solution for you.

Pros:
-Cost
-Cost (So inexpensive it's worth saying twice!)
-Sound is okay

Cons:
-Can feel a bit cheap
-Don't sound quite as good as more expensive brands
-Prone to breakage

good strings except!
cheesy, 27.12.2017
i have found the high 'e' strings to be very brittle/thin and tend to break easily--even when you first fit them.so i usually put daddario 09 for the high 'e' string....i guess you get what you pay for! ....but i have not had any trouble with eadgb ones,price is very good though,and they last quite a while before replacement,i wouldn't gig with them!

Good Strings for super low cost
10.02.2015
I bought a few sets of these 009 strings purely based on the super low price, and to be honest I wasn't expecting much. I had a very pleasant surprise as they don't sound much different to Ernie ball or rotosound strings.
I would not think of spending £10 to £15 on a set of strings as I don't hear much of a difference in sound, so normally buy sets around the £5 mark.
Perhaps my ear is not very sensitive but the Harley Benton value strings sound every bit as god as the £5 strings. I haven't owned them long enough to tell if the will physically last as long, but for just over £1 take a chance and you will not be disappointed.
The order from Thomann was delivered to Northern Ireland in super fast time and was packed very securely. Nice work Thomann :-)

Good, cheap strings for electric.
29.05.2016
I have been using these for maybe 15 years on my Floyd Rose guitars. They are incredibly cheap, sound well, and feel ok. (they used to feel much smoother until about 2007, when HB seem to have changed either the material or the manufacturing process - since that time, they feel less slinky, and when you uncoil them from the pack, they don't spring out straight like most strings, they retain the coiled shape.) They come in individually sealed packs, so the don't rust in storage. A useful tip for Floyd Rose users.... after every gig, I take the treble E out of the bridge, snip off a centimetre, and then re-install it to the bridge. This completely avoids string breakage during gigs, and the already-used string is much more stable than fitting a new one!

Good news for the musician on a budget
Hilario G., 23.11.2013
These strings are incredibly well-priced and -certainly- the built quality is not 5 times worse than your average string set from a better known maker. I bought a few sets of these Harley Benton strings and I could not find a dead string in any of the sets. That is a credit to their quality. Yes, the tone was unremarkable but decent enough for most situations and the tone was the same in every set.
I suspect they are not going to be too kind on the frets but changing strings regularly generally helps extending fret life so even if they are tough the guitar player on a budget will be able to afford having them changed fairly often.
All in all, really outstanding value for money.

Good Value
miguel morais, 21.03.2019
Not the best strings in the world, but very cheap. So you can say its quite good value based on the price. In terms of quality, decent finishing, somewhat good sound and don't break as easily as I thought they would.

Good basic set of strings
15.07.2016
Long bits of metal wire that attach to your guitar and make sounds, what else can I say? Well, they stay in tune and sound fine to me. Good value for money and liked that they were individually bagged.

Amazing for the price
Paul3456, 04.10.2014
It was cheaper to buy a set of these than a replacement top E string alone from my local music shop. I particularly like nickel strings and these are great with a good tone and matched tension. They last reasonably well and don't rust, but at the price even if you change them every week you'd still win out.

I use these strings on anything with a Floyd Rose. They sound good and last well. They don't feel as smooth as the more expensive strings, but who cares - they're really cheap!!

esther2504, 17.02.2014
Hi there! I bought these strings for my old Ibanez Blazer ( just in case). Some my say: Harley Benton Strings are too cheap to be good. But the aren't! I like them! I like them. It is always a challange to find good strings which are affordable and yield a good tone! I found a good set: Harley Benton Valuestrings 009! Nice! This set is worth trying out!
