Ernie Ball Nickel Wound Electric Slinky
Ich benutze sie seit einem Jahr (Datum meines ersten Live Gigs). Mir gefällt der Sound vor allem wenn sie neu sind. Sie oxidieren aber ziemlich schnell. Ich habe praktisch alle erhältlichen Saiten getestet und für den Preis sind diese Saiten die beste Wahl!

Würde ich sie basierend auf meiner Erfahrung wieder kaufen?... Ich habe in einem Jahr 12 Sets gekauft!

Ernie Ball Nickel Wound Electric Slinky
I have been playing Ernie Ball regular slinky strings for more than 10 years. I typically change the strings on my electric guitar once a month, or even more often if I am recording. Probably the biggest tip I can give someone that is either new to playing the guitar, or is looking for a simple way to improve the tone of their guitar - change the strings. I know too many people that never change their strings until something breaks. This is the easiest way to insure that your guitar sounds dull and lifeless until the next time your strings break. The Ernie Ball slinky strings are the cheapest way to keep your guitar sounding good. Every time you put a new set on your guitar will sound much better than when it old strings with dirt and grime all over them. The main thing is that all the dirt and grime changes the physics of how your strings vibrate. When the strings can't vibrate properly, you are going to lose tone. Therefore, change your strings and clean them whenever you play.
The only downside of these strings is that they don't hold their tone for very long. As soon as you put them on, they sound great. However, after about 5-10 hours of play time, they really start to sound dull. I guess you get what you pay for. There are more expensive strings that hold their tone for longer. Pretty much if you pay more money then you won't have to change the strings as often. With these strings, they are super cheap. I typically buy them in packs of 10 sets. But then you have to change the strings over and over again. This is a little bit of a hassle. I have recently tried out the new Ernie Ball Cobalt strings. I honestly don't think they sound better than the Regular Slinky strings, but I am hoping they hold their tone for longer. All this to say, the regular slinky strings sound great. As long as you are willing to change your strings often, then these are the way to go.

I used these strings almost exclusively for years. The gauges are specifically chosen and are unique, a high E with a gauge of 10, and a low E with a gauge of 46. I think that they are particularly great sounding, and the custom gauges are great for rock musicians who want a clear, light high string sound as well as the thick, full bottom string sound. The gauges are designed with a great disparity, so while they aren't the most consistent and best-feeling strings out there, they are still pretty cool. It's difficult to compare them to other strings because Ernie Ball uses these models to try new things, which is why they are one of the most interesting string companies out there. They have a unique sound that really sounds great for hard rock material, which is why so many musicians in those genres swear by them. That being said, I don't think they sound as good as Dean Markley Blue Steel strings, which are my new favorite. That is probably because my tastes have changed, and my style of playing is definitely more blues/jazz influenced, and I need a different tone. But even still, I know many players who prefer these to Dean Markleys, even those who play similar styles of music to me. The only drawback that these strings have is the fact that switching to these strings after using more conventionally gauged strings may give your guitar some problems if you don't have it set up to the new gauges, but this is only after a long period of time. Otherwise, they are reasonably priced, they sound and feel pretty good, and they are certainly unique-sounding. For those people who play hard rock in the vein of Guns n' Roses or Metallica, these strings are hard to beat, and the back of the package will give you plenty of famous names who agree.

I really like these strings. I went through several gauges looking for exactly what I wanted. I knew that I wanted to be able to tune down to Drop B and still have some resemblance of string tension, but at the same time I wanted to be able to solo easily on the higher strings when I play in standard tuning. These strings were definitely the answer to my search.

I run a BC Rich Warbeast NJ Deluxe that is loaded with active EMG's and has a Original Floyd Rose bridge on it. I knew that I wanted a set of strings that had great clarity, and that were fairly bright. They also needed to have great tuning stability, as I tend to do some crazy stuff with the Floyd Rose every once in a while

When I first got these strings, I have to say, I was pretty impressed with them. They have great low end clarity, which is perfect for what I normally play, which is Thrash metal. The sound is just altogether more focused than with lighter strings, and they also retain pretty decent string tension when down-tuning, but the high strings are still pretty loose for ease of soloing in standard tuning. They definitely give a fatter sound as well, which is great for those open E palm mutes with heavy distortion
Overall, I really couldn't be more pleased with these strings. Not only do they sound great, but they retain decent string tension when down-tuning. They do keep that awesome "new string tone" for longer than other strings I've noticed, which is great. I normally change strings at least every two months at the longest, because I don't like the feel and tone of old strings.

In the end, although you can't beat a standard set of really heavy strings for those low tunings, these are a great compromise between down-tuned tension and standard tuning soloing ease.
