Almost exactly the sound I wanted out of theseAfter looking for a different sound with a guitar I recently refinished, and after a few days of research, I decided to give these a try. I was more than happy with these strings! They weren't kidding when they said these have a high output. I had a set of standard Ernie Ball regular 10-46 nickle before I switched to these and you can definitely hear the difference. With my guitar set up, these strings gave my guitar a really heavy thick sound perfect for the style I was going for. If you are looking for a thick sound with some throaty bass behind it, these are the strings for you. I will definitely be using these on my guitar from now on!5Noticeably louder and sound better with some age on them.They are definitely a bit louder and more aggressive than your standard set. I put them on a vintage Rich Virgin with Dimarzios and you could really tell that they are higher output. That also brought with it a lot of string noise but after some play that seemed to reduce leaving the strings sounding really good.5Great Strings For Small GuitarsI recently purchased a 3/4 Rogue guitar ($60.00) so I could sit in my recliner watch the people fish on the lake and play my guitar. (without knocking over the lamp or my drink) It sounded bad when I got it so I put some Ernie Ball regulars on it. It was better but still a little weak on both highs and lows for doing any Chuck Berry songs. I put a set of these steel hybrids on it and it really helped with the lows on the power chords and with the highs on the "No Particular" intro. Sounds good enough now, at least for home use. I might get an Ibanez Mikro for X-mas and put some of these on it too.5False start...The A through high e strings were fine, they were smooth, bright and clear. The low E string snapped when I was simply stretching it (in the the same way I've been stretching my strings for years mind you). While they sound pretty good, the first string I put on snapping does not inspire confidence.3Sounds great. Settled in quickly.I put a set of these on an Ibanez RG with a hard tail, and solid mahogany body, and tried them out at a gig. Neck pickup is a Dimarzio Air Norton, and bridge is a Dimarzio Steve s Special. These sounded really clear. Great note separation, and smooth overdrive distortion. I feel like they re also more responsive to picking dynamics. I liked them enough to try another set on an identical guitar with an Air Zone in the neck, and Tone Zone In the bridge. If I like that, I ll test a set out on my Les Paul. Overall, I d say that they re probably my new favorite string. They also settled in really fast, so I didn t spend an entire night tuning between songs. The tone was not as boomy as I expected either. It was very balanced and clear, with just enough bass to sound warm and full through the effects mix. They also sounded good clean through a Dunlop Slash Crybaby Wah on a Fender Deluxe Twin Reverb. I use 5mm Dunlop Primetone picks, and they stayed in tune through some pretty aggressive bends and picking.5Great strings, but for specific situationsFirst, the negatives: the difference between the plain and wound strings is pretty drastic. As in, it feels like you're playing two different guitars. I guess that's the point of the skinny top/ heavy bottom, but I kinda wish there was a slightly more gradual transition between the 17 and 30 when playing in the middle of the fretboard. The wound strings have a lot of zingy character that makes the highs and upper mids difficult to tame without losing brightness on the plain strings.However... I firmly believe these are high-quality strings for the right style and the right guitar. If you're switching between heavy rhythm chunk on the low strings and leads on the high strings, these are powerful and wonderfully responsive. I think a warmer (mahogany) body guitar with darker humbuckers and drop tunings would get the most benefit, and I'm interested in trying the 7-string version. For a Tele or Strat, however, I'd stick with more traditional nickel strings.4... changed the sound and output of one of my favorite guitars. I have used Ernie Ball strings in ...These things Are amazing-they have totally changed the sound and output of one of my favorite guitars. I have used Ernie Ball strings in the past and never thought that they were anything too special. I usually used GHS customs but I decided to give these a try. I was very surprised by the quality of the strings and the substantial boost in overall output. Highly Recommended for any guitar. The only downside is if you prefer a slightly muted top end they may be a tad too bright in my opinion.5Wonderful Sound and FeelMy favorite new strings... well new is relative. I've been using these strings for months and I love them.I've read some reviews about the strings being rough... and I can tell you that 4 of the 5 sets I've used start out rough... for like 10 minutes or less... they seem to sometimes have a rough unfinished coating on them and with a couple minutes of play they are smooth as silk. My first impressions was like... "The reviewers were right"... but I kept fiddling with them on my guitar and all of a sudden they were silky smooth.My first thought was that I got used to them friction... but nope picked up my other guitar and the strings on it felt fine, so went back to the new strings and the were still silky smooth. Probably the smoothest feeling strings I've used and the sound... exactly what I wanted out of my Schecter Hellraiser and my Schecter Blackjack C1-PI could see some people not liking the sound for some types of music... I wanted an aggressive sound to enhance my guitars sound... these did that. But they do not "ruin" my Blackjacks nice bluesy sound either.If you're afraid of the "they're scratchy" reviews test them out for yourself. 1 set is cheap and not a big deal to try out. Just play them for a few minutes not 30 seconds. Or wipe them down... I'm going to try that on my next set and will post a follow up on here about how that works.5I play a lot of lead guitar and rock and metal rhythm and move my fingers pretty fast up the and down the neckI did not know exactly what to expect when I received the M-Steel. I have been a customer of Ernie Ball for many years, and the hype around these strings finally convinced me to try them out for myself. I can definitely say that I could hear the difference right away. The strings I took off were still new, so it wasn't just the new string sound. They are brighter, more resonant and a lot smoother to slide up and down the frets. I play a lot of lead guitar and rock and metal rhythm and move my fingers pretty fast up the and down the neck, and these are the best strings for my style of playing.These are my new standard.5The shortest "experience in a new world of tone"!Thanks to Kirk Hammett(and... fortuity) I discovered Ernie Ball Slinky,with highest output on Earth(may be Musk knows something more...lol). I've received my magic pack with 'New world of tone", but couldn't decide to install for 2 weeks. I really hesitatedto replace my Elixir's...mostly ,because I didn't want to set up my bridge for new and different thickness of strings. At last,..sorry ,my Elixir's,good bye, I opened "New world of tone". I had time to put only 1-st and 6-th strings,but when I went to "E' on 6-th, it was gone right before 1.5 tones of "E". The shortest experience in a new world of tone! Thanks a lot,Kirk! Welcome back Elixir's, and sorry for my "broken balls". But thanks Ernie Balls for such a fast screw up! I didn't get a chance to reset my bridge!1
