The legendary Ernie Ball
snakeyay, 10.07.2020
What's there to say about this awesome set that hasn't been said? Everyone knows who and what they are - and let's not kid ourselves, the packaging is one of the most recognizable on the market.

Personally, I prefer them for my Les Paul guitars, maybe just personally, but I think it makes the guitar sound "fatter" than D'Addarios, but I'm pretty sure that's only me.

Been using Ernie Balls for over a year now and haven't had a single string break - it's usually just the regular string change that makes me switch over to new ones.

For your E standard goodness on shorter scale Les Pauls, there's nothing better for me.

Good dependable strings
2501, 31.03.2021
I've been using Ernie Ball bass strings for ten years now, recently I've took up guitar and I'm glad to see that their guitar strings are just as good.
There's not much to say about it, honestly - these strings are the baseline by which I judge other strings. Never been disappointed by them. Are they're the best thing ever? No. Are they mediocre? Also no. They're just good strings with a decent longevity, good tone, feel and quality, and at the end of the day it's what matters to me.

Good sound, but too much breakage
Slam Tornado, 17.02.2021
Now this may be specific to me and to my band mate, but we've been trying these out for some time and we're on the fence about these strings.
We both play fast Thrash Metal on guitars with floating tremolo bridges. These strings sound great, no doubt about that. But somehow they keep snapping. It's almost always the A string, sometimes the D string or the low E. Idk if this is specific to our play style and to the music genre, but this is a problem I never had with D'addario strings in the past for example, and since we both switched to the latter, the breakage problem mostly disappeared.

The Mutts Nuts!
Woodwork Barn, 17.10.2017
These are the only strings I buy these days. Have tried a few other brands in the distant past but have always come back to EB's. Reliability, consistency, longevity, versatility, feel and tone all score 10/10 and at a price that's hard to beat. As with most strings they are too bright when brand new but they do settle in very quickly, and if lightly stretched when first fitted, tune easily and hold it well. After 35 years of playing, hopefully I should be a reasonable judge!

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