Nice and easy strings

The Ernie Ball 8's are the strings for you if you do a lot of bending. I found them exceptional for that, but they were a bit too light for me when I was playing chords. A lead guitar's strings and perfect for the job. No better strings than Ernie Ball.

Thank You Customer Service Personnel

I haven't had a chance to try the set of 8s I put on my Artist Brownburst. I came here in praise of the Customer Service I recently received and also in the past when I had need to contact after sales service for a hand. Thanks guys and gals.

I just want to say I love the Ernie Ball 8-38 gauge strings you can't beak them like some people think.They feel like 9's just a little bendier. I don't mind the price but I would love it if Artist made 8-38 strings, I have played Artist 9-42 and they are great. thanks to Artist for selling Ernie Ball 8-38 they are the best, easy on the hand wrist and fingers, great for blues and rock.
