"Bad batches? Or just really poor strings?"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I will never buy anything from Ernie Ball ever again. I want my money back! Furthermore, these strings are the worst value in the market. Don't even consider these awful strings.
Maybe I got a bad batch or something again(as this is the third time in a row I've bought Ernie Ball strings giving them the benefit of a doubt), but I can't see why people love these things. The sound is so flat and boring. There's no dynamics to them. I'd just as soon use fishing line on my guitar.
You get six individually packed strings. Not much else. Then again, what else do you need?
Ease of Use
You'd think they'd be easy to install. NO! I tuned the heaviest string to only C flat before it snapped. I only wanted to tune to D! The others were not problematic. It sucks only having 5 strings without a backup.
These strings suck. As I mentioned earlier, the tone is horrendous, the strings snap before they're in tune, and I hate them.
If you're desperate for cheap strings, this is for you. Otherwise get something else.
I never bothered, so I can't really give them a bad score.
The Wow Factor
The packaging is in a really bright color, so it does catch your attention. The low price is attractive too, but don't bother. I know I won't ever repeat this mistake.
