The classic Rock'n'Roller!

27.01.2015
One of the first strings I tried were these Ernie Balls.

I've searched a warm but brilliant sound for good ol' rocksounds.

If you want to rock....or blues......or jazz... go for these strings!

That's the classic, chuncky fat, open Rock'n'Roller sound you search for.
Classic to modern sounds - no problem!
They last at least 3-6 weeks and usually won't break at normal to harder playing.

The attack is great and so is the dynamic. The stability is pretty good, even if you'll strum hardly. It let's you break up your amp while it feels really controllable.
The pickups catch up every tonal differences - we are back to the dynamic.

It brings a strong but comfortable string tension, so it will take downtunings easilly.

I play Jazz, Blues, Bluesrock and a little bit of metal with these strings on a Les Paul.

So, if you search your allrounder with all qualities or you're a beginner and have to search YOUR choice of strings - go with these

The best strings at their price range

17.11.2016
Before I start I have to confess that I was using Ernie ball strings for the most part of my playing "career". Nevertheless I found the regular slinky to be their best (for the price) and most versatile strings of the Ernie range.

You can play any genre without hesitation or difficulty and sound great (either palm muting or crazy blues bending, it will do the job). Obviously if you are playing at low tunings these might not be the strings for you. I am at standard D on a Les Paul (shorter scale length than a Strat) and they suit me just fine - you will encounter some difficulties from Drop C and below.

I have also tried the 9s from Ernie but they were too slim for me and they snap quite easy. I have also tried a couple different ones from the D'Addario range (which were double and triple the price) and still I found myself returning to these. Obviously there are better, more expensive ones but if you change your strings every month or so, like I do, then these should definitely be one of your top choices.

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