Get Great Playing Comfort and Great Tone

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 M-Steel (maraging steel) strings are made of a superalloy used in aerospace and defense applications. The super cobalt alloy wraps around the maraging steel hex core wire to give you a rich, full tone. You'll feel a more powerful low-end response and hear increased output from this set of strings in the popular .009-.042 Super Slinky gauge combinations.

These became my favorite strings

I'm a pro guitarist with 25+ years experience in rock. I've played just about every type of guitar string. I was playing cheapie regular slinky and super slinky, and Nickel XL for a while to save money because I like to change my strings once every week or two. I tried GHS Boomers but they broke too easily. My guitar set up is best suited for 9-42. I had heard about the M Steel decided to splurge. I had felt that they probably were just going to be another decent guitar string. Boy was I wrong. The bass tones are very pronouced. They are bigger, fuller and very tight. They were louder. Not just turning up the volume louder but creating more of a volume bump within the even harmonics. They are really touch sensitive, a joy to play. They worth the extra couple of bucks. I had heard that with the M Steel technology that it tames some of the highs. I didn't find this to be the case. It was a well rounded and evenly eq'd sound from bass, mid, and leads. If you hesitating pick these strings up. You won't be disappointed.

Absolutely Amazing

I have seen these strings advertised for a while now but have never bought any of them before now. $12.99 is a lot more than most sets of strings and I was afraid they would not live up to all the hype. I finally decided to bite the bullet and buy a set, boy am I glad I did. To me they sound and play absolutely amazing. After that first set I ordered several more sets and installed them on some of my other guitars. I have now found my new favorite set of strings, just wish they were a little less expensive.
Music background: I've been playing guitar for 48+ years mostly Blues and Rock, but starting to play a little bit of Jazz now.

Fantastic Strings

I have had these strings on my Strat for about 5 weeks and they still sound as good as when I first put them on. They stay in tune, once tuned up they stay that way, I've been performing in clubs about 53 years now and except for one brand of string that are not made anymore these have been the best. Way to go Ernie Ball.

Nothing short of amazing!

I initially had to buy the first set of strings elsewhere because my favorite place to shop (here) didn't have them in yet. I have used these strings for 3 weeks now and they still sound, play, and feel like I just put them on. Mind you I play very aggressively on my own and also Worship music.I was skeptical at the price point considering slinky's are way cheaper and I burn through strings every two weeks easily. I am absolutely sold on these strings. I wish they were cheaper but these strings continually floor me.The tone, brightness, feel, etc.. are superior to other strings I have used over the last 40 years. Way to go Ernie Ball you knocked it out of the park literally and I am now officially a M-STEEL user!

M-Steel vs. Coated Super Slinky's

I read the great reviews on this string and thought I would give them a shot (after all, I am an Ernie Ball avid user). I typically use the Super Slinky Coated, Titanium Reinforced strings. The M-Steel strings are louder as advertised. Been using them around a week and like a quality product they still play well and stay in tune. However, my style of lead playing involves a lot of doing a riff and sliding up and down the strings constantly. These strings are a bit rough on the fingers when doing that all night. The coated super slinky's on the other hand feel like slippery ice and are very easy on the fingers (and they too hold their tone well). I think I am returning back to the tried and true coated version simply for my fingers sake. These would be great if you play rhythm guitar because they are a solid and perform loud. However, if you play a lot of leads a lot the Titanium reinforced super slinky is the way to go.
