They’re seriously the best strings ever. They’re quality strings that last forever and sound and feel great! 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 2:18 am #866 Alex HaysomParticipant I use the Ernie Ball Cobalt 10-52. Definitely the best company going around. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 5:35 am #892 Ids SchiereParticipant I never really like de them more than d’addario or anythint to be honest. At the moment I prefer elixir strings 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 6:24 am #905 Thalle AlbertParticipant Love em! No Doubts. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 11:11 am #961 Tom WhaleyParticipant They’re my go to! Although I switch up the type sometimes… I’ve been comfortable with the skinny top / heavy bottom strings for a while. Great for down-tuning and keeping the integrity of your heavy tones in tact. My band had a song in Drop B for a while that sounded like farts until I put on those strings… now it punches exactly the way it should! I’ve tried the Cobalt and M-Steel variations, and I’ve loved them, but they’re a little out of my price range for constant use. If we’re recording or doing something important, I’ll spring for the higher quality strings. If not, I’ll just roll with the $5 packs haha #ballinonabudget 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 11:40 am #972 Jeremy BakerParticipant Use em and love em. Regular Slinks for me. I have used hybrid before but the regs are my go to. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 1:17 pm #992 Filip TomišaParticipant My experience with ernie ball strings is that the coated ones are great and last a long time but the regular ones get dirty pretty quick and start to rust. So I switched to elixir strings cause they have a long life and for some reason the music shop in my town stopped selling coated ernie ball strings so elixir is my only option. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 1:18 pm #993 Paul EloffParticipant Got my first beefy slinky’s 2 weeks ago. Amazing! 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 3:59 pm #1164 Laís MunizParticipant Use them for years and love them. Regular Slinky 10-46. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 4:01 pm #1165 Julian BartonParticipant I am in love with them! The new paradigms are amazing I bought the skinny top heavy bottom ones because I love to play a 10 52 gauge and get that push back. They didn’t break and that was my favorite part had to replace them when I tried to pull the guitar up by the Floyd when I was messing around and ripped a string out. Didn’t really break them then even lol. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 5:55 pm #1259 david ruiztagleParticipant EBs in normal gauges (10-46) tend to break on me on the E string. I use NYXLs and GHs Gilmour (which are great for bends). 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 7:50 pm #1325 Douglas LaneParticipant Not a fan of the strings, but I LOVE their guitars. I own a Majesty and a JP15, I can’t keep my hands off them 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 7:59 pm #1333 Justin McinnisParticipant If I’m gigging a lot, I love them. Only because if I’m gigging a lot, I’m changing my strings a lot, regardless of they’re actual lifetime. I mostly use d’addario NYXL. They are My favorite strings but not worth replacing every 7 hours of playing or so, at 12 bucks a pack. For heavy gigging Ernie ball slinky 10s. 0 likes January 4, 2018 at 8:39 pm #1402 Nic CullenParticipant David, if the strings are breaking at a consistent spot on the same string, it sounds like it’s a problem with your guitar. Where is t breaking? 0 likes Author Posts Viewing 15 posts - 1 through 15 (of 18 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
