Very happy

My teenage son is stoked with his new guitar strings! Very easy to install and great sound for his Artist guitar. We don't listen to the radio at home as we prefer to listen to him nowadays. Delivery was very fast. 10/10

Great strings.

These strings are really good, they all came in seperate mini packets which is amazing, it means they wont be entangled together like D'Addario ones can be. I'm using these for Drop A#/Drop B/ Drop C and it's working great! I use light gauges compared to everyone else: 8-38 on Standard E, 9's on Eb, 10's Drop C/D Standard and Drop B and A# and A is 11s. My Spiritus is currently strung up with 74-13 strings which wasn't a good idea since I am stuck in Drop E atm but it's all good :)

Surprisingly good tone!

Probably the best cheap strings I've played, I love that they have them in 10-52 gauge also!

These strings are excellent value. I use them for drop d and I play metal and rock, and these strings are great. I bought 1 set of elixir strings at a guitar shop for around $15. I ordered 2 sets of these strings and paid $3 less than I did at the guitar shop and I can't really tell the difference.thanks artist guitars!

Simply Amazing

I couldn't imagine a better cheaper alternative for D'Addario strings or Ernie Balls. These strings go right up there, all the way through from clarity, to feel. They're so easy on the fingers, they were quick and easy to get in tune real quick, even with the mediocre stock tuners that come with my Squier. They work in multiple tunings, they feel just perfect. Easily earned 5 stars Artist Guitars. You've delivered again on the amazing quality accessories! Keep it up!

These strings sound good to my ear.
