Go for it

Mr. Crowley, 06.01.2018
I mostly play metal, as well as some rock and blues, and I use many tunings such as standard, E flat, D, Drop D, Drop C, Drop D flat, DADGAD or Open A. These strings do the job in every genre and tuning.
I do not usually care about the string brand - I care about how fresh they are, yet, I always find myself buying another pack of Ernie Ball.
Something I like about them is the fact, that they don't sound too harsh when out of the pack, and it doesn't take too much stretching to get them to stay in tune.
Another good thing about this brand is the fact that each string has an individual envelope. This is something I hate about other brands, like D'Addario, when the strings are tied in pairs. You have to unwind them, and they get bent and broken even before you start using them. What Ernie Ball does totally makes sense to me.
10-46 is my favorite gauge - it handles reasonable down-tuning (no Drop Q!) well, yet the strings are easy to bend.
Go for these strings with no hesitation, it is totally worth the money. You will not be disappointed!

Ernie Ball are the best guitar strings there are

danstabwoi, 01.04.2018
Never had a problem with these. No fuss and no nonsense?they just work. My Les Paul and my Strat sound amazing whenever newly strung with them, and they feel awesome to bend on.

That tone, of course, doesn't last long if you're playing 2-3 hours or more per day, but I find with Ernie Ball they actually also sound good as they age and wear out. Different, but good, which is why I choose them. With other strings I've tried they really sound dull after a week.

The ability to customise your gauge by buying individual strings is a brilliant plus also with these. I could not get my SG to tune to C sharp with the readily available gauge sets I found on the net. With Ernie Ball I could customise my third string to work properly and intonate well and bend properly.
