You really can't go wrong for £0.78 for a set. They're not the best strings in the world for obvious reasons lol, and you'll need to change them every week or two but they're ridiculously cheap so it's not a big deal. I'd definitely recommend them if you're on a budget.

Most of the Time i use Ernie Ball Skinny Top Heavy Bottom

 

 I just bought these for my electric guitar. So far I like them but I haven't really tried them out. On my bass I am using D'Addario ETB92. They are black and tapewound and play really well.I think I will only use these strings from now on.

But other than that Ernie Ball ;).

Right now, I'm using the strings that came with my Jackson, but once I need a replacement, I'm going to be buying the Ernie Ball Super Slinky Strings Set (9-42) to put on my guitar. Heard many great things about them and hopefully won't be disappointed.

For my headless D'Addario ESXL125's I don't have a lot of options for that guitar. For now, all my others have D'Adadario 120's on them. They seem to last me a good while. But I have used MANY different brands. I guess I just got tired of GHS Boomers.

Am I the only wimp that uses 9s..?  :shock:  :oops:  :-P

 

I use them on guitars with standard tuning, too.

 

Ernie Ball or D'Dario though. I tried Fender strings once and they were terrible...

Honestly, they're more gimmicky than anything, but I'm a sucker for that.  They look hella cool under a black light.

 

My 7 year old finds them helpful when playing RS.

 

Wow! Never seen those coloured strings before, do you find that they are helpful when playing RS or do they just look good. Thinking about bying a pack.

 

The best price I've seen for them is on Amazon.
