More updated review
I posted my last review in 2012, and feel it would be good to give a more current review since I have used these for nearly a year. I have not played another brand on my Strat in the last year. I last said that these strings are great for a mellow dirty tone, but they shine through quite well on more up front and in your face tone. I have played a lot of various music with them, including King's X, Offspring, RHCP, etc, and these strings cut the bill every single time. Again, highly recommended for lasting tone and durability. Off to buy another set now.
