I'm a Ernie Ball nickel slinkys user for 5 years, so I know the touch, sound, everything about them very well. I was looking for the 6 string pack from them, when Webstrings crossed in my path... Well...what can I say...is the same thing...the Ernie's and the webstrings are the very same!!! from the string gauges to the sound and tacte are the very f.....g same!!! I still can't believe it, but I'm 100% sure that both brands come from the same factory. 100% recommended if you look after good quality nickels (not high end, off course) with a great price! Regards!
