CONCERNE MON AVIS SUR LES CORDES ERNIE BALL 2221
BZ_4218.be 24.02.2022
Le prix est justifié pour cette qualité de cordage, le son est satisfaisant pour le genre de musique auquel ces cordes sont dédiées (rock actuel, folk actuel, blues actuel, ...et autres tendances actuelles).

Great strings if you change them often
Anonymous 30.06.2016
This might only be my experience, but when fresh, these strings are the best strings for bending I've tried, and sound great. They really are slinky, and for a period of not more than a week of playing they're excellent.

Then they promptly start to oxidize, sound tinny and lose elasticity. But they're the most comfortable strings to use while they last. If I were a professional playing a tour where minions change my strings before each show I'd use these (or maybe the RPS version of these). As an amateur who's not rich, I have to think of alternatives. I usually gravitate between these and D'Addario EXL 110 strings, which last longer but are less bendy.

Again, maybe that's just my experience and my hand chemistry is what's causing it. But I've heard others describing the same issues.

I've been using these a lot for more than 10 years now - I bend a lot so they're handy.

Not the best, but they're cheap, sound good and last long enough. There's a reason why they are the default strings on new electrics.

As crispy as the get!
Seger 29.12.2014
I've been using the Ernie ball electric guitar strings for over 10 years, mainly the Regular slinky but also the 009 and 011 sizes.

The sound of the Ernie ball regular slinky is extremly crispy, with that I mean very clear and brilliant. The quality is good and it's not many cases were a string has snappet (3 times over the years as far as I can remomber, and all those time the strings has been very worned out).

I have been using those strings mounted on:
-Fender stratocaster (American standard)
-Gibson Explorer
-Hamer (several)
-Jackson SL-3
-Peavey EVH Wolfgang special
-2 x Music man Luke II (one BFR and one custom)

The possibillity for improvement is regarding how long the string feels fresh, but this is common with all nickel wound strings regardless of brand.

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.

Great product for a good price
seiska 16.07.2018
I've been using Ernie Ball strings for years on different guitars. The sound is bright and clear. They are strongly built. I've never had a string break on me or had any major issues. The only problem is that the sparkle wears out pretty quickly. However, for this price Ernie Ball strings are definitely a good buy.

Can't handle my corrosive fingers
GenGerr 07.11.2020
Not their fault, Elixir are the only strings that last more than a couple of hours playtime, acoustic or electric.
I just wish they weren't so expensive but still cheaper than replacing strings on 4 guitars every 7 or 10 days

Very good, quality strings. Long-term solution for a guitar. Can handle heavy playing and some nice, easy 'jazz' tones ! I always choose Ernie Ball !
