The legendary Ernie Ball
snakeyay, 10.07.2020
What's there to say about this awesome set that hasn't been said? Everyone knows who and what they are - and let's not kid ourselves, the packaging is one of the most recognizable on the market.

Personally, I prefer them for my Les Paul guitars, maybe just personally, but I think it makes the guitar sound "fatter" than D'Addarios, but I'm pretty sure that's only me.

Been using Ernie Balls for over a year now and haven't had a single string break - it's usually just the regular string change that makes me switch over to new ones.

For your E standard goodness on shorter scale Les Pauls, there's nothing better for me.

Classic and root strings
Guizão, 21.07.2020
Very straightforward and effective strings. I always know the sound I am getting from this set of strings as it is well manufactured and have a very good quality. Although they are not coated, they have an anti-corrosion treatment for their life inside the hermetic package and I believe, for their life mounted on the guitar. I may experiment many set of strings but this is the one I always end up buying.

For all tastes
Mostro, 29.05.2020
This strings sound very good in my Gibson Les Paul, the sound is quite balanced, with some brands it can get muddy, so this ones allow me to have more versatility.

Pros: Sound good, clean, good sustain and although is silly, nice packaging, much better to carry for replacements in this format than the ones in cardbox. Plus with this color you never lose them in your bag.
Cons: To my taste they lose the bright end of the sound faster than other known brands, but still last much longer than others.

All in all, good price, good quality, suitable for different styles and for musicians of all levels.

Go for it
Mr. Crowley, 06.01.2018
I use exclusively Ernie Ball strings. This gauge goes on my shorter scale length guitar (24,75 inches). On this guitar, they handle downtuning pretty well, and also bend well. I've had them sound and look fresh for up to two months. I also like the fact, that each strings has its individual paper package - they are not tied together. This makes unpacking and unwinding much easier and causes less damage. The price is unbeatable.
However, for longer scale guitars, I would recommend using the 9-46 set.

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