I like them
Bullyweeman, 01.03.2018
I wasn't altogether sure about these, before I bought them. I wanted to try coated strings, but didn't want to pay £15 a set. So, I took a punt on some of these, and some for my acoustic. So far, they seem pretty good. They feel alright, and they sound alright. I don't change strings as often as some people do, so I could probably stand to pay a bit more, but I just can't bring myself to spend all that.. The packaging is pretty cool, too..

Great coated strings at an amazing price
John8610, 28.10.2015
I added some sets of these on to an order. I like Elixer Polywebs on some of my guitars, and find them to be very tonal and long lasting. When I saw these HB Strings at the low prices, I wasn't expecting them to measure up to the Elixer strings. Needless to say, I was very pleasantly surprised. The HB Coated Strings are very high quality. They sound great, and last longer than non coated strings. A lot of players I know don't care for coated strings. Some say they aren't as chimey on the treble side and they sound dead on the bass side. That's simply not the case based on what I hear when I play them. These sound every bit as good as my favorite non coated strings. The big advantage to the coated strings is simple. They last longer. Less time changing strings and more time playing. These HB Coated strings hold tune real well after being stretched a few times too. If you're on the fence, I would not hesitate to try a few sets. I am happy to have both Elixers and HB's in my string drawer.

Guitar strings best kept secret!
Macs 66, 18.12.2018
I used the acoustic version of these and I'm quite happy to buy the electric version now. Easily on a par with the more expensive direct brand-new alternatives. Will buy these for as long as I play, or that they're available.

Good strings for a good price
ryo200024, 10.05.2017
Where else can you get coated strings for 3.90 Euros? I bought these as an experiment instead of the usual ernie ball and they work great unlike some acoustic harley benton strings i bought. I really see no flaw with these strings and the tone does not really differ much from my old ones (due to pickup). For the price, this is definitely a string set i would recommend.

This strings feel great and sound pretty good, too.

This is the 3rd set of coated strings I've bought, each consecutively cheaper (I'm looking for that sweet spot of price vs. quality), and these sound pretty much the same as the other sets.

Just get these
AdamK95, 29.06.2018
I was never a strings crazy person but recently in more advanced playing I have grown sensitive to them. I tried a couple before stumbling by accident with these. I tried the Ernie Ball Paradigms and D'addario NYXL and they didn't last merely as long as these ones. They sound great and alwas feel fresh. Absolutely recommended.

Coated Strings That Still Sound Good
09.03.2015
I thought I'd try the Harley Benton strings, and despite never quite being happy with the sound of the big name brands, I have to say I was pleasently surprised at how good these are.

Out of the packet they immediately felt right, and on my Telecaster, they even had that new string sound and feel that to be perfectly honest the other coated strings I've tried seemed to lack. I don't know if the coating is thinner or a different material, but they feel and sound more like nickels, which is only a good thing.

Will they last longer than normal or other coated strings? Too soon to tell but I'll update the review in a couple of weeks.

Very nice strings
17.07.2015
These strings are very nice. The have a very bright sound and they keep in tune much better than my old strings. They come in clearly labelled packaging for anyone who isn't sure which string should go where yet, Highly recommeneded.

Great budget strings!
Why do I need nickname?, 13.06.2017
What can I say, I like these strings. They are fairly durable, mellow, but not dull sound, pretty good tuning stability. Really great way to see if coated strings are your thing.

Great strings
Üllar, 09.07.2013
Cheapest coated strings that I've ever seen! They're sounding little brighter than regular Harley Benton electric stings, so I'm using those on my humbucker-equipped guitar to get little bit more of clarity and brightness.

Great Strings
chienmort, 23.04.2018
My previous experience of coated strings was with the original Elixir and I was never happy with them. These seem fine, in fact if I did not know they were coated, I could not tell.

I a man occasional guitarist as My main nstrumentbis bass. As a result I often find strings corroded andc ifekess aftera few plays. These stay bright and clean. Excellent strings.

Great value
lassekongo, 08.01.2014
for this price it's a bargain. Maybe not as good as the elixir, but they are perfect for my extra thomann guitars that are not used very much, but I still had to change strings on because they sounds muddy.

About coated strings...
MagnusSvantesson, 26.08.2013
Don't know about you, but my opinion is:
I have been Using at least 30string producers during my last 25years!

Sorry to say, but non of those can compete with the value of the Harley Benton 0.10

Coated strings, I've been buying them in 12pack, for as a know to, "best price"...
Even got friends from USA sending them over as "gift" to Sweden.

Now founded out that Harley's coated strings those the job as good as the "fancy brands"!!!

Not all of the the stuff here deserve this good feedback, but these, well earned!

Must say, Thanks Thomann!

Best Regards,
Magnus /www.stollarna.nu

Comfortable and strong
Kay562, 04.06.2013
Come just as the description described. Stong and sturdy and they have lasted me quite a while. Comfortable on the fingers and capable of surviving a thrashing.
