My go-to set of strings
C M S 24.04.2021
Lately I've been finding myself ordering a pack of Beefy Slinkys with every guitar I get. They've become my go-to set of strings over the last couple of years. They're cheap, yet hold their own in the string world.
Granted, they're a little treble-heavy, but even over time as the strings stretch and your oils dampen the string a bit it becomes less of a problem, although at that point it's time to get new strings. However, that's just a minor nuisance that can be remedied through EQ.
The Beefy Slinkys are also versatile tuning-wise. I've had them in all kinds of tunings, from E standard to C# standard and drop B. Below C# standard they do start to get a little loose though, so I'd go with a set of 12s below that. It's tougher to do bends on the higher notes in E standard but it's a good workout for my fingers!

Overall, if you're looking for a good and cheap set of strings that aren't too tough to play but aren't too flimsy, the Ernie Ball Beefy Slinky is the way to go, in my opinion!

Daily driver

I use these strings to play low tuned metal with my ST-style guitar. They are most comfortable with a C# standard tuning, but can easily do C standard, Drop C and Drop B. They sound awesome! However, this set is in desperate need of a 22w 3rd string. Also, the sound starts getting dull after a month or so, but this is probably normal for non-coated strings.
All in all, it's a great set for a reasonable price and my personal daily driver for low tunings. Just make sure you replace the 22p string with a wound one!

Great for drop tunings
XMan of Brie 28.10.2021
These strings are great, the quality and sound is great like all ernie ball strings. I find that they are optimal for c and c sharp tunings but they are also great for d tuning aswell. I highly recommend these strings for anyone playing in drop tunings.

Unbeatable

As a lone tech in my own workshop I will fit whatever strings my customer wants. But if they ask me, It's usually Ernie Balls I recommend. The range is extensive and the quality, at the price point is fantastic. I've yet to have an EB unwind at the ball end or snap at the tuner when installing theses strings. Once they're stretched in, they hold their tune for ages.
