Ernie Ball Strings!

Ernie Ball strings have been a top choice for players of all types since the early 1960s, when guitarists came into Ernie Ball's music store, customizing their string gauges to make their axes easier to play. After fruitless attempts to interest major guitar manufacturers in a lighter set of strings, Ernie Ball decided to start making his own. When you open a pack of his strings today, you know you're getting a quality set of strings designed to give you great tone, reliable performance, and long life. You can't go wrong when you string up with Ernie Ball strings!

Ernie Ball's RPS-10 Regular Slinky wound electric guitar strings are made from nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around a tin-plated hex-shaped steel core wire. The plain strings use a patented winding of bronze wire tightly wrapped around the lock twist of ball end for reduced slippage and breakage, making them slightly bright. They're popular with artists ranging from Keith Richards to John Petrucci.

A quality set of strings!

I've been using these strings for a few years now. These strings have the same feel and tone as the regular Slinkys. Life span varies on how much you play(obviously) but I haven't noticed any significant increase or decrease compared to other sets I have tried. The RPS due provide a touch better tuning stability compared to regular Slinkys(only noticeable on the plains strings). I've never had a string randomly break on me and the intonation stays true set to set. Nothing fancy here but you do get quality and consistency.
4.5/5

Maybe I'm Just Lucky

I've had two sets of these on my PRS recently. So far, I haven't had any break on me. Knock on wood. They seem to last longer than Ernie's Regular Slinkys and they sound about the same.
3/5

Broken two strings already... time will tell

My new guitar shipped with these strings and it sounded amazing. I hadn't used this brand/model string prior to that. I was impressed and ordered and installed another set. I gave these 3 stars because of how great they sound. Strangely, two strings from the new pack have broken. The high E (10) broke at about the 14th fret. The D (26) broke near my picking location. I've played guitar for 28 years and it's RARE for me to break a string. So, to break two in one week is concerning. I'll give it more time and another set before coming to a solid conclusion about their durability. They do sound awesome, though. Bright, full, and clear... but not too bright. These strings do have a slightly stiffer feel than other strings.
