"These are my favorite strings ever. I like them on humbuckers or singles. Probably not the best for metal, but for the bluesy rock stuff I like, I think they're perfect. Articulate, but not shrill. I like the way they feel. They seem to be fairly easy on the frets. I usually leave them on way too long, but they seem to stand up to it--the tone fades but they rarely break. They don't last like Elixirs (but I don't like the feel or sound of Elixirs as much), but they hold up much better than Slinkies (which also don't sound or feel as good)."
