    I like the fact that all of them are coated and the plain strings feel somewhat rough due to the coating. It makes it easier to grab the string when you want to bend it.

    I've always been frustrated by how the high strings, on an average new set, tend to be too slippery when bending. I always liked how easily you can grab the high strings to bend them when the strings get old. However, by that time the strings don't hold their tunings as well, don't sound as good, are on the verge of breaking and have to be changed.

    You guys have solved that problem for me. That's why I ordered 10 sets of the strings

    PROS: Great strings. They really do the job for me

    These are decent strings. I have played guitar for around 7 years now, and bass for about 9, and used many different strings brands in my playing career. When I saw that monoprice was now selling these coated electric guitar strings, I HAD to check it out.

    I mean, they're 5 bucks.

    Now, these are NOT cleartones by any means, the coating is not so smooth (which isn't bad, some people don't like smooth strings) and they feel quite a bit like a normal set of plain d'addarios. I have only had them on for about 30 minutes, so I can't say anything about their longevity yet, although the fact that 2 of them were dull right out of the package has me a little worried.

    TLDR: not a bad set, would definitely buy again, but do not expect cleartones or other commercial brand "smooth" feeling coated strings.

    PROS: Cheap. Arrived quickly, as always.

    CONS: Slightly dead D and G strings in the set I purchased.

    I use a Floyd Rose bridge, and I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to use a lighter gauge of string on there, but even so, I had the low E come apart on me while tuning it up. I slid the ball end through the tuning peg (which I've done with other strings before with no problems) and then clamped the other end in the bridge. After applying pressure and changing out the other strings, it started to fray at both ends, the ball and the end I clipped. Eventually, I didn't have enough string left to work with. Under normal circumstances without a floating bridge, things might have gone smoother. In my experience, these aren't very usable strings. The gauge seems to bring the floating bridge up too high and screws up the intonation. The sound is also slightly duller than I was expecting.

    CONS: The low E (6) came apart under pressure for me, and I had to replace it with the old one.

    Love MonoPrice But will never order again
    Now I do usually use nicer strings, typically DR, but decided to give Mono price a shot since I buy everything else for my studio from here. These were the worst strings I have ever played in my 20 years of playing guitar. They constantly stretch out of tune, were dead out of the package, which I did see another review, and overall sound quality was horrendous. I understand exactly what the strings are marketed to if you just bought your child a cheap guitar for Christmas I need to get some extra strings this is great. But do not think of putting them on any instrument that you're going to play out live. After about using for three days the strings were so badly out of tune and we're not holding their tone I had to cut them off and remove them. I put these on two separate guitars that had two different types of set ups and the result was the same. I will not stop ordering from Monoprice but I will never order the strings again. And Monoprice just let you know I would pay a few bucks extra for some good quality strings from you because I would order them all the time.

    PROS: There was nothing good about this except for the price and speed of delivery.

    CONS: Will not stay in tune

    Dead Sound

    Cheap Chinese manufacturing

    Great strings - great price
    These strings are perfect for what I'm looking for and the price is right! I haven't had any problems with this product and these strings behave exactly as I expect.

    PROS: Good quality and a good price

    Great Strings
    These strings are on par with Elixer strings for half the price. The bright tone is always pleasing to the ears, and the coating on the strings will ensure they last a lot longer than uncoated strings. I like how instead of each individual string's package is labeled 1st, 2nd 3rd, etc., as apposed to other brands that have them labeled by string size. This is handy for lazy people and amateurs. Monoprice killed it with these amazing strings. I'm never buying Elixers again knowing I can pay half price for these!

    PROS: Coating creates a smooth surface for fingers to slide, bright tone, insane value as usual from Monoprice, great packaging

    CONS: None

    Terrible, brittle, waste of money.
    I bought 4 packs. I am now on the 3rd broken 3rd string in one re-string. They've got a curve like they've been in the box a long time, and are very brittle. Would not buy again.
