Best Electric Strings on The Market
Stookiebhoy, 17.03.2018
If you like Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings, then you'll absolutely love these. Guaranteed not to break with a 3 months warranty, these strings are a no brainer for Ernie Ball customers, and should be on other brands customers 'must try' list, because I guarantee you'll convert.
The reason I loved Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings was they seemed to have a 'snap' that no other string brand gave you. Being predominantly a Strat player that snap is an important part of the tone. I've tried most other brands throughout my 40 years of playing guitar, and I always end up buying the same strings. Until now that is.
The Paradigm strings still give me all the qualities I love about Super Slinky's, but a bit extra as well. They feel more 'spanky', without the 'tinny' sound you get from new strings and are better to play as soon as you put them on.
The coating gives them a much better playability than the Slinky's and aids fast runs up and down the fretboard.
But the thing I really love about them is how quickly they settle into tuning. After putting a new set of strings on I always played them in for about an hour or so before using them on stage, just to help them settle and stop them from going out of tune as much. With the Paradigm's there's no need to do that. Just put them on, stretch them, and you're good to go, they settle so quickly.
Top all that off with just how durable they are and you're onto a winner.
I changed my strings every 2 weeks tops before using the Paradigm's. I now change them every 2 months, so they're saving me money as well.
Like the title says, best strings on the market right now, bar none.

I was overall satisfied with the product. The only quality issue was with the D string. After a week of non-extreme use, a "glitch / bump" occurred on the D string around the 8th fret , presumably because the continuity of the outside round wounding of the string broke. No big deal, I do not think that this occurs regularly with EB strings, but I thought to mention it. I nevertheless still recommend this product.

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