Stringing Me Along

By: on 9 April 2021
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

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...

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

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.
