Long Lasting and favouritte in this gauge type
Swords, 12.12.2020
I love the ddarrio because of the sound but they get rusty and lose the sound quality and brightness after 2 weeks... I ve tried many strings in last 10 years..

I must admit in this string gauge the ernie ball is my favourite and became a standart for me in every gauge. Like if i dont know which strings to buy or for certain my guitars I always grab ernie. You can totally count on this companies strings.

Yes, they dont have that brightness and tone that I love from ddarrio BUT! They sound like a ddarrio after 3 days of play and keep that sound for long! One month at least you will have that nice tone! And the strings are very high quality!

I recommend this strings to anyone and any genre !

Good but not perfect
LooneyLoo, 22.03.2021
I have been using Ernies for years now but I think I'll be switching to another brand.
I gig 1-2 times a week and I find Ernies don't last very long before they get rusty. They are perfect when you first put them on your guitar, they tone and feel are probably the best out of all strings I have tried but I feel I must change strings every 1-2 gigs due to the corrosion. I have on occasion opened a brand new Ernie Ball set and there were signs of rust on them, on a brand new set! I have tried Daddario XL over the past few months and I noticed they last way longer than the Ernies but I must say I definitely prefer the sound and feel of the Ernies.
I guess they're perfect for studio use or for guitar players that change their strings often

If you don't want to complicate yourself...
SZapatero, 16.07.2018
These are the perfect strings if you just want the standard set, they don't have any corrosion protection but the tone is very good and I simply can't complain for the price. This set in particular would fit any fender Strat or Tele, as they were designed for this string caliber (0.09).

I've had this argument with many of my friends about getting a bit darker with time, and it's obvious that after one month the sound will degrade a bit, but I prefer to change my strings 3 times for less than 20 euros, and always have new strings, than to buy a single package of Elixir for the same price, that although they will last longer, they can't compete with a regular change of strings. If you complain that these strings are not so slippery as the protected ones, try with some conditioning oil for frets like 'Fast Fret', I use it every time I leave my guitar back in the case, it protects my strings and feel as nice as any other brand.

Overall, I've been using them for years and I've tried other brands too, but I would say that for this price range they're unbeatable, I'd recommend them to any musician from entry level to professional.

Works For Every Electric
AlexSaint, 03.01.2020
In the past, I never really cared that much what strings went on my guitars. As long as they were 10-52 gauge, they were fine. Now, I stick with these 9-42's.

Some strings have been a little too bright, hard to keep in tune, wore out quickly or have even had five strings in the pack instead of six.
I put a fresh set of these on my Floyd Rose-equipped Charvel and...

1. They maintain their tuning with negligible adjustment required (even with some heavy bends and big trem pulls).
2. Good tone - the new string brightness tempers down quickly and they last a good while before they start to sound a dull enough to change out.
3. They don't corrode easily - unless you have really acidic sweat or dirty hands, they'll last well.

These are so cheap, there's no excuse not to order multiple packs to ensure you always have a fresh set available.

Recommended.

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