Ernie Ball 2242 RPS Power
Sean N., 12.04.2015
I started playing in a band again last year after many years only playing acoustic guitar and found I was breaking strings on my Fender Telecaster and was very hard to control the strings as they were so light.
Last week I bought these Ernie Ball 2242 RPS Power strings and immediately the feel, control and sound improved dramatically and I haven't broken a string yet.
Top markers for these lovely strings!!!

The Best, Easy

I spent my life buying D'Addario Strings, until you reach Ernie Ball, and when I got can be assured D'Addario was forgotten, Strings many tough and you will gain a few more weeks of use.

Good strings

Good strings, but now I only use Thomastik Jazz, because they feel and sound much better for me.

Un poco del Slash....
M2BA, 02.03.2013
Uso las RPS 2242 Ernie Ball strings con la LES PAUL desde hace un año. y ayudan si se busca un sueno como lo Slash.

No osbtante las he montado de vez en cuando tambien en la Strato y en la TELE, y el sueno cambia totalmente.

En general las uso cuando quero poner guitarra half Step Down, ya que si uno afina en LA son un pcos duras para los bending.

Se suelen romper menos que otras ( lo miso parsa con las 0.10).

A menudo se compran los accessiorios por moda, pero no es el caso de estas cuerdas.

Tienen mucho brillo y al mismo tiempo mucho ataque.

Merece la pena probarlas.

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