Not a lot of information or even opinions on these strings for some reason. So I just thought I'd share my thoughts on these strings after a couple weeks of hard use. Usage: Heavey Duty rock, drop tuning, distortion. I needed something that wasn't get muddy or floppy on my when I'm in Drop C and/or using distortion. Tension: 110 90 75 55 At these guages everything is very manageable. For the couple songs we do in E standard or Drop D, then tension is a touch high, but no more than a set of flats. Output: Ernie Ball claims that these strings have a higher output. I buy it. I took off a set of GHS Boomers to put these on and the difference was certainly noticeable. Definitely louder. Feel: NOT NEARLY AS STICKY AS I EXPECTED! They almost feel like nickels or a set of of dead SS's. A touchy grabby out of the package, but they settle down after a couple hours. Tone: Definitely aggressive, punchy, definitely heavy in the mids (specifically low mids,) highs are really clear, but not harsh. I would call them tame, but in a good way. With most other strings, I need to run my tone wide open, with these I tend to around 3/4. Good clean bottom and fundamental, maybe a touch on the low side, I had to boost my lows a touch amp side, but nothing major. In The Mix: Obviously much of how and where you sit in mix is where you are in the eq spectrum in comparison to the guitarist, your amp, cab etc... That aside, if you are playing rock, these suckers will cut through like nobodies business. Those beautiful mids just come shining through. So you are present where you need to be, and supporting where you need to be. Coming to these conclusions based upon: Playing in a band currently covering Deftones, RAtM, Tool, 311 etc.... If you guys have any other questions, let me know.
