I have been playing for over 50 years, and since going onto Artists strings, (9/42 for Strat and 10/46 for LP), I have not broken any strings, I play daily at home, at the local blues club and practise with a band, The strings do not corrode or loose brightness and I don't change then as often as I had to with other strings. I recommend them to all my mates.

Ordered these as spares so can not review but will say this about Artist they have been FANTASTIC advice service quality and quality products I have set myself up with Footstool ,Stool ,Music Stand ,NUX Mighty 20BT Amp. Leads, Cleaners, String Winder and Cutter, Picks ,Headphones and I am sure somethings I have missed but planned to get it right as I am picking the Guitar up again after 40 some years All the contacts I have had with them has been nothing but GREAT good old fashioned service and knowledgeable 120% only frustrating thing is having to borrow a friends Electric Guitar as the TL69BND is not in stock and I had been looking forward to getting it as I feel based on my experience thus far I think I would be most happy sorry to say I have purchased another Guitar but would have liked to have got the TL69BND but patience and past experiences with other things and Shipping dates changing to become a long drawn out process and know its available for preorder released around December 10th so I know need to convinced she who must be obeyed that I must have this Guitar

Stringing Me Along

Have bought these strings before and this will make the fourth set I've . Used the 10-46s twice and have gone down to 9-42s after surgery on the fretting hand. Both gauges have shown themselves to be reliable and I have not broken any strings or had any failures. The tone is bright and I find I'm using the tone knobs on my Strat more which is easy enough. I've found they tune up and hold tune consistently even with vibrato use as good as any other brands I've used on a Strat with the trem up and floating as Leo intended. I don't gig any more but the tone seems to last fairly well . I'll use them again!

I have been using 'budget Chinese' strings for years. I would rather change strings more often if necessary. Been really happy with that so far. So how much better are the Artist strings? Can't be much different - right? Happy to report that I think the Artist strings are a step up. I've also been a 10's guy for ages. If you saw the YouTube discussion on 'Are 9's better?' - I'm thinkin' that there might be something in that too. But give these a go. Looks like the best bang for buck to me. When the alternative is 2 or 3 times the price per set & some of the established brands react with my hands & tarnish after a week, I doubt you will be unhappy with the Artist strings.

as always, high quality product from Artist

same quality as other branded strings.

Can't go wrong!

I accidentally bought a set of 9-42 strings ages back, and as I live out of town thought I'd just fit them as a stop gap. Well that was that! I loved them, and now fit them to all my guitars. I am not rich by any means, so I thought that I'd give these Artist strings a go, they seem fine so far, admittedly it's only been a week, but hey, $20 for four packs. Bargain! Give them a try. I see they have a new 10-46 supplier, maybe those of us who are converted to lighter strings might get lucky too?

Fantastic srrings

I put these strings on as soon as I got them and they sound fantastic. Also they were delivered before they said they would be, really good service.

Great product and for the price, I certainly can't complain. Good all purpose strings.

Perfect for semi-hollow body...

By: on 14 September 2017
I love light gauge strings on my semi hollow body. I also love their twang on a Tele. When I'm not playing metal, and want to just set that reverb up high and rock/blues and country my way into an afternoon. These are the strings for me.

I recently purchased some sets of Artist ELST942 Electric Guitar Nickel Strings Super Light Gauge 9-42 and can seriously recommend these as the best strings that I have used.

Excellent value

By: on 3 August 2017
I've been an Ernie Ball string user for years, but I thought I'd try Artist brand strings as a fairly low-cost experiment. Out of the packet, I was unable to notice any significant difference from my usual strings. On the guitar, I was unable to notice any significant difference in tone. As far as I can tell, these seem to be perfectly serviceable strings and I intend to continue using them instead of the more expensive brands.

Bought these strings to try against other well known brands. Because they are so reasonably priced I really didn't expect too much of them. Well, to my surprise, they are actually very good. Feel great under finger and hold tune just fine. I cannot see any reason why these strings will not last just as long as any other brand I use. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this product and the service that Artist Guitars provides is second to none.

Thought I'd try these on the Partscaster I cart around with me, given the increasing price of the premium brand bulk packs I normally buy. Quite happy with them thus far; clean, tonally acceptable and tension without issue. Seem quite durable to date - a good buy!

I can't say enough about Artist Guitars. They are excellent. I now have an acoustic and an electric! Outstanding value for money. attention to detail, fast delivery and accessories. I am a beginner and even if I decide to stop playing these will still hold a spot on my wall on display. They are beautiful. Rod Scoles :)
