Ernie has big balls !
Bobbynou, 24.09.2019
Yes they are durable and sound great !

All you love with Hybrid Slinky with and improved durability ? What could you ask for ? Sure they'll cost you a little bit more thank your usual slinky's but remember when you broke a string during your live rendition of November Rain at the solo and your girlfriend left you because you ruined her favourite song ? Well it won't ever happen again with those !

What could you say wrong about strings that you feel safe even playing the bendiest of all bend ? And the packaging is really great too !

Indestructable
Dbrown, 23.10.2018
The best strings I've had by a long way. They don't break, they last forever and don't go out of tune even after monster bends. They're more expensive than regular strings but worth it.

last longer, more bendy
Dimo, 25.06.2019
These strings last longer, and are more bendy. They have a slight rubber band feel which I like, but others are partial to this. Easy on fingers.

Cordes de qualité mais onéreuses.
Olive63, 18.07.2018
Je désirais les assayer depuis longtemps. Enfin, après montage, je peux donner mes impressions. Le son est clair, punchy et elles perdent de leur brillance moins rapidement que les autres.
Toutefois, leur prix étant multiplié par 3, et sachant que je change mes cordes tous les 4 concerts, n'espérez pas les garder 3 fois plus, soit 12 concerts. En effet, j'ai gagné un peu de brillance après utilisation, mais je préfère changer mes Ernie Ball 2222 plus souvent. Ainsi, j'ai des cordes quassiment toujours fraîches et le coût reste moindre. A réserver aux guitaristes très fortunés.
Mais après 5 dates, je trouve que l'équilibre tonal se comporte quassiment comme au premier jour, ce que ne font pas les 2222 qui elles perdent rapidement leur punch et attaque.
Bon, 2 mois et 25 dates !!! ont passé et elles sont toujours là, intactes. Pas de casse ni de désaccordage anormal. Leur toucher est encore agréable et bien qu'elles aient perdu de la brillance et des medium, elles font encore du bon boulot. Comme des 2222 au bout de 5 dates. Faites les comptes et à vous de voir. Pour ma part, je passe au Paradigm, ne serait-ce que pour éviter des changements de cordes fréquents qui ne m'amusent guère.

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