been useing Ernie ball strings forever 30+ years and there's no need to switch for they play and sound as good as anything out there and the price is right if you shop around a bit.
this is the all time american classic string. They sound and play well after you break them in a bit. One set last about two gigs if i'm lucky but thats the way it is with most strings.
Ease of Use
put them on a wail
I've heard that all strings no matter what brand are made by one or 2 company's but out of all the strings i've tryed these feel the best to me.
shop around and buy them by the dozen and you can find them just over 3 bucks a pack. Best value imo
