The best strings available

This is definitely one of those cases where you get what you pay for. These strings sound great, plenty of single note/chord definition, string squeak all but disappears AND they last my sweaty thrashing hands FOR-EVER! What great strings! In the past I used 9-42 on my '78 Strat and 10-46 on my mid 90's Gibson Les Paul and '61 SG re-issue. I now use the 9-42 gauge on all 3 guitars with no loss of oomph playing hard rock, metal/high gain on the Gibsons through a lot of effects and my Mercury Magnetics modded Marshall DSL50 into PRS 4X12 Harmonic Generator cabs loaded with Celestion Vintage 30s. I'm getting into my middle age and the silky smooth string bends feel great on my fingers, and all of the bite and Snarl remain. To save money I just buy 'em 30 packs at a time, I think there is an increasing price drop from Sweetwater if you buy more sets of these at the same time.

I've used only Elexir for 10 years they last forever. I have had one guitar that I changed strings on in June. I just replaced. That's worth the price difference. I just bought a new Tele, in 4 days they were turning black on day 8 changed strings. Sorry Fender your strings suck. but the Tele is awesome.

Love em!

These are the only strings I use on all 15 Guitars that I own. My hands sweat a lot and have a high ph level that just rusts the heck out of strings even if I clean and oil them after each use. These strings just last and last without losing their great sound. I tried a lot of strings but have not found any that compare to these.

Long Lasting

These cost more than most other strings but last a long, long time. I hate changing strings so I love these because they last at least 3 times longer than anything else I've tried. Since they last 3x longer, they're really not that much more expensive than cheap strings.


great string I'm sold for ever
