    Greater Strings for Greater Tone

    By 

    from Indianapolis, IN

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Bright
    • Durable
    • Stay In Tune
    • Withstands mass amounts of bends

    Cons

    • New Generation Sound
    • Not for Classic Rock

    Best Uses

    • Rock/Metal/Anything with a bright clean tone

    The Ernie Ball Paradigms are a break through in the guitar world. With a string like this any bright tone is achievable. These strings are the strongest I've ever played, and I used to be D'Addario NYXL player. The Paradigms are great strings and give you a bright, fat tone that is so dominant in today's music.

      Fantastic tone and durability!

      By 

      from Edison, NJ

      These strings are great, the tone is full and balanced and they last a long time. EB even guarantees to replace them if they break within 90 days which is a good deal for any gigging musician. I would highly recommend trying these out, they feel great and will save you the hassle of running to the store every month to pick up strings.

        • Any type of Guitar Player

        Ernie Ball have certainly outdone themselves this time! If you haven't at least heard of the Paradigm's, then you're missing out. After watching some videos about these strings I decided to try them out for myself. After putting them on my Les Paul I went to town. The tone was crisp and clear, the feel of the string was like butter, and believe me when I say that I pounded on those Paradigm's TRYING to get them to break and they didn't. I highly recommend these strings to literally every guitar player!

        I am a Sam Ash Reviewer from Sam Ash store 57 in Indianapolis, IN.

        As a life long Ernie Ball slinky user, these sturdy strings are a dream come true. They come with a 90 day guarantee against breaking and continue the tradition of great feel and tone. This is a hands on review by Jim at Sam Ash 36.

            So these strings are crazy. I had a cheap guitar laying around and I wanted to see if they really are as hard as and strong as they say and man, these guys are nuts. I nearly broke the guitar before I could even get close to breaking the strings. Which I Still didn't. They also sound great and they feel just like your regular ernie ball strings. Best part, they are guaranteed by Ernie Ball strings to last 90 days. That is CRAZY. Love these, these are my new strings
