My top choice for strings

I've been using Blue Steel 10's for over 6 years now and I'm very pleased with the performance. They give me great tone on my 71 LP Deluxe, stay in tune great, and last a long time. I tend to gig twice a month, with weekly rehearsals and our band plays a mix of classic rock, southern rock, and country. Everything from Billy Idol to Lynryd Skynyrd to Johnny Cash and Luke Bryant. I do most of the lead work so these strings get a workout. Sweetwater has been my "go to" equipment provider for over 6 years now and they are the best!
Music background: Gigging lead/rythym guitarist since the 70's.

Great strings at a great price

Having played for 40+ years, I've tried practically every string out there. Gibson, Fender, D'Addario, Ernie Ball, etc. The Blue Steel are without a doubt my new "go to" strings. They deliver great tone on my 71 LP and on my Schecter Tempest. They last forever and stay in tune very well. As mentioned, I have tried many other and more expensive brands and they haven't pushed the Blue Steels out of the picture. They don't get much attention with all the "new" "high tech" (and MUCH higher priced!) strings. It's enough to make any guitarist go mad, even though we're all GAS'ers at heart. I use the tens and they work great for me. Don't see any reason to stop using them and I recommend giving them a try.
Music background: 40+ years experience, lead and rythym guitar.

Fantastic strings!

I'm blown away by these strings, they are lasting longer than any other strings I've used. They stay in tune longer as well, even with solid bending. I've used them for weeks now and there's no visible wear or deterioration.

Best Stings I have Used

People's opinions about guitar strings are like so many things in life; there seem to be 2 sets of opinions: # 1. Some people tend to stay loyal to different brands for different reasons because they have tried so many & value trial & error# 2: . There are people like my brother in law, a loyall chevy lover & Ford hater. I asked him one day what was his bad experience with a Ford. "None" he replied, "I've nver owned one". Well, my guitar string experience is like # 1 listed above. I have tried many strings over my 30+ years of playing. I was loyal to Ernie Ball for a while, then to GHS & then D'Addario. all the while trying other brands in between. My conclusion is that these Dean markley Blue Steel strings are the best strings I've ever used. They sound great, last long, & I've never had one break (come to think of it the only string I ever had brerak on me during a gig was D'Addario. I broke several of those on different occassions). I teach guitar now & I use these strings (electric & acoustic) because of the value. they don't break the bank & I don't have to change them very often. I really like these strings, they are the best value I have ever found.

Last Forever

I am blown away by how long these strings last. I play between 1-6 hours a day and the only reason I changed them after 2 months, that's right, 2 months, was because I changed some electronics to include a blend pot and put in an SH-13 Seymour Duncan. Jobs like that are a lot easier without strings on. I kept the old set in case I break a string. I haven't broken a string yet from either set and I do a LOT of bends. I can honestly say I will probably stay with these on my Omen-6 for the life of the guitar.
Music background: I feel I consider myself a hack but a lot are saying I am doing good.
