whats your thoughts on ernie ball 54 gauge strings???

and whats some krunchy strings you all use ??

thanx.

I dont use the lower gauges anymore, but when I did EB's never let me down
I love their strings. I just put a set of Super Slinky .09's on my PRS and it gives it a whole new sound, and of course they bend excellently, too.

Yeah Ernie Ball has never let me down as far as string quality goes I use them on my RG. Not 54's though Power Slinkys.

54...as in the not even slinkys, starting at 12? I use them, they're alright. I wish they came with a wound G though. Good strength training, you'll need to set-up your guitar for them, the tension is way different. I like 'em.

ernies are a good buy, i use the Heavy Top Slinky Bottoms and those are amazing, they are big and chunky on bottom and slick and clear on top

Not Even Slinky is a .56 isn't it?

54 gauge?!?!

Can you bend them?


If you can't, you aren't a man.

i've been using 10-54 for a couple years now on a strat. Love 'em. Regular Slinky. A friend tried them on his epiphone and isnt a big fan, though.

Yes, I caught that after I posted and couldn't be bothered to correct.

To add, down-tuning IS cheating. The only measure of manliness is determined by how far you can bend a heavy gauge. SRV - superglue or no superglue, manliest ever.

i have used earnie ball for 20+ years but recently changed to elixers. i play seven string set 10-56 by earnie ball. for the elixers i use a guage thicker on 1-6 and a 58 for the 7th (b).

Meh that is sorta true. But a .56 in C or D is far more tension than a .4x in E. (I used to use the .56 Not Even Slinky for D, now I've moved to .52's and drop C at the request of my other guitarist lol.)
