The legendary Ernie Ball
snakeyay, 10.07.2020
What's there to say about this awesome set that hasn't been said? Everyone knows who and what they are - and let's not kid ourselves, the packaging is one of the most recognizable on the market.

Personally, I prefer them for my Les Paul guitars, maybe just personally, but I think it makes the guitar sound "fatter" than D'Addarios, but I'm pretty sure that's only me.

Been using Ernie Balls for over a year now and haven't had a single string break - it's usually just the regular string change that makes me switch over to new ones.

For your E standard goodness on shorter scale Les Pauls, there's nothing better for me.

Go for it
Mr. Crowley, 06.01.2018
I use exclusively Ernie Ball strings. This gauge goes on my shorter scale length guitar (24,75 inches). On this guitar, they handle downtuning pretty well, and also bend well. I've had them sound and look fresh for up to two months. I also like the fact, that each strings has its individual paper package - they are not tied together. This makes unpacking and unwinding much easier and causes less damage. The price is unbeatable.
However, for longer scale guitars, I would recommend using the 9-46 set.

The Mutts Nuts!
Woodwork Barn, 17.10.2017
These are the only strings I buy these days. Have tried a few other brands in the distant past but have always come back to EB's. Reliability, consistency, longevity, versatility, feel and tone all score 10/10 and at a price that's hard to beat. As with most strings they are too bright when brand new but they do settle in very quickly, and if lightly stretched when first fitted, tune easily and hold it well. After 35 years of playing, hopefully I should be a reasonable judge!

The best non coated strings there are
Pimiboj, 04.11.2019
I will preface this by saying I now only use coated strings. I have very acidic sweat and most sets of strings only last me a week from the first time I play them.
These, on the other hand, last me for a full month. If I'm recording I always put on Ernie Balls for the sound and sustain I get from them. I've never had a single string break on me while using them, even with a floating trem.
Currently, I'm on Elixirs which last me far longer than these. But I still use them on recordings. For people who have normal sweat, you can't go wrong with Ernie Balls.

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