Sounds perfect!

Why don't buy Ernie Ball?!

It sounds like strings of angels. Of course, there is archangels, and some more high-tier creatures, but why we should think about them?

In September (2 months ago), i bought my first electic guitar Epiphone LP Studio LT. It came with strings from the facility. As I am the newbie, i decided to leave them where they been, and start to practice WITH them. I'm not rich, to be honest, i'm living on my parents money. So, i gave a chance to that strings to show them fully (played with them whole 2 months).

The time has come for cleaning fret, and changing strings. I did it. Guess what? I FELT THE DIFFERENCE WITH FINGERS. I'm seriously, if previous strings were like dull knife, these feels like mouse paws! I mean, they are tenacious, they are clingy, they are comfortable to play with...

So, now it 2nd week of my using These wonderful Ernie Ball 2221. If you a newbie like me, or just don't want to THINK TOO MUCH about strings, this pack is - must have.

p.s. i have checked some of more expensive premium-tier strings, sure that i will check it later.
but for now, i'm totally satisfied

The best non coated strings there are
Pimiboj, 04.11.2019
I will preface this by saying I now only use coated strings. I have very acidic sweat and most sets of strings only last me a week from the first time I play them.
These, on the other hand, last me for a full month. If I'm recording I always put on Ernie Balls for the sound and sustain I get from them. I've never had a single string break on me while using them, even with a floating trem.
Currently, I'm on Elixirs which last me far longer than these. But I still use them on recordings. For people who have normal sweat, you can't go wrong with Ernie Balls.

Go for it
Mr. Crowley, 06.01.2018
I use exclusively Ernie Ball strings. This gauge goes on my shorter scale length guitar (24,75 inches). On this guitar, they handle downtuning pretty well, and also bend well. I've had them sound and look fresh for up to two months. I also like the fact, that each strings has its individual paper package - they are not tied together. This makes unpacking and unwinding much easier and causes less damage. The price is unbeatable.
However, for longer scale guitars, I would recommend using the 9-46 set.

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.
