SA10 Humbucker

They have a great sound

Gibson SA10 Humbucker Special - .010-.046 - Light

Having two Gibson electrics, I've defaulted to these strings and not tried any others. The guitars did not come with this specific kind of Gibson strings. When changing to these, the tones got richer. I have no complaints, and hear or feel no reason to try anything else.

Very slick, the secret of a good guitar sound.

I use to ignore strings branded by instrument manufacturer because they are usually, well quite BAD. However I was dying to find out what were the factory strings on my Epiphone Les Paul Tribute Plus. So I tried these blindly. Well it turns I adopted them.Of all the strings I have tried for acoustic and electric guitars, these are the only ones that I REALLY LOVE to play for both action and sonority. They are very soft to the fingers, and even the strings I had for 4+ months feel like they are new and lubricated or something. Not sure what they do to them, but they are magical. That's why I say they are very slick. If you like to slide a chord on the small strings, these are working very well.Tone wise they are my favorite with Les Paul and SG. They don't have this annoying overtone the cheap strings have. When palm muting, they provide the sound you would expect. I recently got an Epiphone SG 400 Pro, and the factory strings had a terrible tone especially with palm muting. They were sounding more like hammering on a barrel. Compression and high gain would not make much difference. The factory high E string also broke within a few days. The Humbucker strings give you more of this Eddie Vah Halen compression effect while palm muting even at moderate gain. I am mostly a bass player, a hard acoustic guitar strummer and a rhythm guitar player on electric, so don't need to say that I hammer hard on my instruments, but these handle well brutal treatment and last for months. Very often, I'm surprise that I don't blow them off, so hard I treat them for long hours. But they just keep up.If you have an instrument with Gibson style bridge, do yourself a favor and try one of these. It might be a revelation.

A great product to use!

I used to always use the cheapest strings I could find, and I thought I got great tone out of them, but when I slapped a pair of these strings on my Epi. LP Standard, I was extremely impressed. The material that they use really cleans up the tone and gives you a great sound. These are great strings whether you play rhythm or you rock out leads.

Great sounding strings!

I put a set of these on my Epi Les Paul after trying many other brands. The moment I started playing with these on I could hear the difference. They really made the "57 humbuckers on my "60's Tribute Plus come alive, much more than any other strings I've tried. They are worth the money. I'm about to install my 2nd set. They do what they say "optimize you humbuckers".
