Only strings I will useI have been using these strings for years on my electrics. I would recommend these over the more expensive Elixirs. In my experience they are just as good, and probably better. Just use something like Fast Fret after you play, and these strings will last as long as the more expensive ones, and in all the years I have been using these strings I have never had a single string break!!!! Give'em a try. You won't regret it!

Great stringsIve used classic Fender strings on my Strat for a while. I play a lot of Pink Floyd and thought I'd give these a try since that's what David Gilmour uses. I was pleasantly surprised. While they aren't as bright as the Fender strings, they definitely aren't dull. I would describe the sound as a mid-boosted mellow sound. Plenty of low end but not too much, and the highs come through well but aren't shrill. They sustain well and hold tuning well. Great for warm dirty tones, but especially nice for a clean sound.
