Whats not to like?
Christopher7960 28.09.2017
Cheap strings usually feel like, well, cheap strings, but as I was ordering from thomann anyway I thought I'd try a couple of sets of their cheap strings.

These 9s went on my telecaster, this guitar is used by my daughter for her music GCSE and so I change the strings fairly regular just for reliability during any school performance she has to do.

When I first string it up with these I was expecting that horrible cheap string feeling, but it wasn't there, they felt like decent guitar strings. The tuned up, stretched in and held tune just fine, and they also sounded as good as branded guitar strings

Like I said usually strings on this guitar get changed fairly regular but I've found these have lasted longer than the EBs I usually put in them, they have kept the zing longer. They still sound alive longer after I'd be swapping out the usual brand of string.

They do everything you want a string to do, they feel right, they sound right, they last very well and they cost very little. I'd suggest anyone add a set of 2 to any thomann order and give them a try, because if like me you find them good you could be saving yourself a lot of money on a guitar you gig regular.

Good to buy in bulk
Richard0401 28.12.2020
I regularly buy HB strings in bulk because they are so much cheaper than any other brands. I use them on every instrument I own.

The main reason for getting these is obviously the price, and you know what, I feel like these are better quality strings than the price would suggest. I currently use these on all my guitars, and if you secretly replaced all the strings on them with different "big brand" strings, I wouldn't notice.

Now the one thing I noticed about these strings, and thats why I'm deducting a star from my feedback, is that when I put a fresh set of these on my guitars, they are sometimes sticky. Not sticky like jam, more like kinda plasticky. It does go away after about a day of playing though so it's not a big deal, but I still find it strange.

Tuning stability is good IF YOU STRETCH YOUR STRINGS PROPERLY.
Sound quality is also good, as I said earlier, I would not be able to tell these apart from other brands.

Overall, I recommend these strings.

Great for the value
GniQQ 18.05.2023
So I was kinda skeptical about these but I've ordered some other stuff so I popped in a few to reach the free shipping limit.
Surpising feel and tone, they are fine. Not as shiny and nice looking as like a nickel D'Addario, EB or DR but still really worth the value. I bought 6 packs of these for the price of one set of D'Addario.

The price tag is misleading
Small Shed Luthier 16.01.2022
Because I've got a lot of guitar projects, I decided to buy these "cheap" strings for mockups, that is, untill I found an old, used set and ended up using these strings on a guitar.

They are affordable but not "cheap" at all. They sound great and last longer than the "major brand" ones I usually use.

Try a set of these and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
