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
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.
CONS: The low E (6) came apart under pressure for me, and I had to replace it with the old one.
PROS: There was nothing good about this except for the price and speed of delivery.
CONS: Will not stay in tune
Cheap Chinese manufacturing
PROS: good sounding strings play well
PROS: Good quality and a good price
PROS: Coating creates a smooth surface for fingers to slide, bright tone, insane value as usual from Monoprice, great packaging
