Artist ELST942 Electric Guitar Nickel Strings Super Light Gauge 9-42
Reviews (15)Write a review
Stringing Me AlongHave 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!

sppedy deliveryGood strings, good price, prompt delivery.
Great valueI 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 Artistsame 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?
