I brought a second hand guitar to have a crack at learning. The strings were showing signs of wear so I purchased the Ernie Ball set from Artistguitars. The delivery was prompt & the strings sound great (even with my playing)

Matching strings to your guitar

A few weeks ago I was watching a video by Tommy Emmanuel about tuning and matching strings to your guitar. I have never tried these Ernie Ball strings before so decided to give them a go, what a difference, a much richer sound and Moore suited to my guitar, so pleased I tried them.

Incredible quality and sustain.

These are the best nylon strings I've ever had the pleasure of using. They have such a full and rich tone it was like I had bought a new guitar. The sustain on these strings is also incredibly impressive with notes ringing out longer and clearer than any other strings I've used in the past. And another plus is the ball end makes them much easier to put on the guitar, which means I get to the playing that much quicker without all the fiddly hassle of tying them on. Oh, and the black and gold colour of the strings looks nice and fancy. These are going on all my guitars from now on. 5/5

On the ball...

Many years since I have used Ernie Ball classical strings. My old Yamaha preferred D'Addario... Enter, a new Ibanez classical to my life recently. The D'Adds didn't do it much justice. So I tried some Ernie Ball Classical strings. Perfect. Not expensive, yet long lasting and holding their tone well. I'm a busy busker on a budget, and like to get the most out of my strings. I've probably put 30 or more hours of play into these strings, enduring cold winds and hot days, and they're holding up perfectly. And I love the look of the three black nylons. Back in the day, similar strings went by the name of 'Black Diamond' and I have a vague idea they were EB's too. Anyhow, great strings which suit my Ibanez and my none-too-gentle style of playing... and at Artist Guitar prices, what more could you want!
