Love these strings. The doom proceeds


They were here quick and the doom proceeds. Thanks Sam ash.



New Number One


These are my new favorite Ernie Ball strings. I've been a Heavy Bottom, Skinny Top player for a long time, but these ones caught my attention recently because of their gauge scale — way closer to what I really like. The output is great, they ring crisp and clean, and are pretty tough as far as durability goes. Harder to break than you think. I'd recommend these all day long to any player that likes heavier guitar playing.



Love Ernie ball


Lover drinks ball strings been trying to find the right gauge for me. I think I found it.



Never a let down!


Strung up a newly setup Epiphone Les Paul with these strings. Never disappointed in Ernie Ball strings. The sound and feel are just perfect.



Great overall strings.


These strings sound and feel really good. The price is lower than the Cobalts or M-steel as they are not quite as great. I put these on my guitars that I don't play very often.



Found my new strings


Love these. Usually play the skinny top/heavy bottom, but thought I'd try these. Pretty solid on a telecaster. Heavy, but easy to play.
