Item Description

These Ernie Ball Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 10-46 hit the scene in the 70's(hence the sweet packaging) and have since established themselves as the industry standard for rock.

Artists like Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Pete Townshend have relied on Ernie Ball strings in the studio recording and in live performances for over 40 years. - ErnieBall.com

Ernie Ball Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 10-46 offer a full, balanced midrange sound with a nickel plated steel wrap wire around a hex shaped steel core. The non-wound high carbon steel treble strings are put through a specially tempered tin plating process to balance out the guitar’s tone.

Great string at a bargain price
I'm not sure if there are better strings made for this kind of money. I was using Elixir for years...great strings but more costly. Tonally I've found both strings are very similar. Yes the Elixirs will last longer but not enough the justify the cost difference.
ProsGreat tone and balance
Consas they age they can leave a dark corrosion residue on finger tips which is common with non-coated strings. Just need to clean the strings more often to avoid this.

Packing issues
I bought a 12 pack of 10 to 46 strings, they sound good and the price is right. Largely I'd recommend these strings to anyone. However nothing is perfect and the issue had with the packaging was as time went by I found the plain strings had rust/corrosion spots on them. I still used them of course but I wouldn't buy 12 packs again because of the corrosion issue.
ProsGood price and they sound good.
ConsPackaging isn't airtight so the strings will corrode and rust. Don't buy bulk.

Best strings for the money
Ernie Ball are the best strings for the money. Sure there are better strings, like thomastik or DR for specific types of music or certain tones, but ernie ball have a great overall tone and they last longer than others in this price range.
ProsTone Price useful life
Consnone

Great for heavier picking style players
These strings have a thicker Core to Wrap ratio than most pther brands. This means the string doesnt vibrate in as wide and arc and it allows you to hit a bit harder without buzz.
ProsA tight bass response that is quite 'Modern'. Players who like a bright and tight bass will love them.
ConsNot so good for those seeking old school warm 70s tones

after 50 + years of playing electric guitar
I have always used these Ernie Ball electric 10-46 gauge strings on every electric guitar I have ever owned. Best overall strings for tone, balance of tone and durability. Great for single coil or humbucker pickups. In my humble opinion, you can never go wrong with this Ernie Ball set both performance and price wise.
