Go for it

Mr. Crowley, 06.01.2018
I mostly play metal, as well as some rock and blues, and I use many tunings such as standard, E flat, D, Drop D, Drop C, Drop D flat, DADGAD or Open A. These strings do the job in every genre and tuning.
I do not usually care about the string brand - I care about how fresh they are, yet, I always find myself buying another pack of Ernie Ball.
Something I like about them is the fact, that they don't sound too harsh when out of the pack, and it doesn't take too much stretching to get them to stay in tune.
Another good thing about this brand is the fact that each string has an individual envelope. This is something I hate about other brands, like D'Addario, when the strings are tied in pairs. You have to unwind them, and they get bent and broken even before you start using them. What Ernie Ball does totally makes sense to me.
10-46 is my favorite gauge - it handles reasonable down-tuning (no Drop Q!) well, yet the strings are easy to bend.
Go for these strings with no hesitation, it is totally worth the money. You will not be disappointed!

Decent strings

maslascher, 09.02.2018
So far I was using some d'addario strings so I thought some change would be good.
Strings are nicely packed in seperate paper envelopes so they don't have colored rings on each ends which has better appearance especially on guitars where strings ends tends to be visible (for example Tele, especially top loader). It is however waste of paper.
Putting strings is normal like any other good brands where usually you don't have to worry string will snap in the middle of tunning.
Sound is different than d'addarios but difference isn't that big.
After good stretch and few days they stay in tune no problem. I wasn't expecting any less on Tele("hardtail" with straight headstock).
They seems to lose sparkle faster than d'addario. After just few days of some playing( maybe 2 hours in total) they sounded dead.
Don't get me wrong. Ernie's are still good choice but it's just matter of preferences. Some people prefer these and I can understand that.
I think up next I will try some budget strings.

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