A quiet afternoon to myself to play guitar. Thought I'd give these a try. I've used the regular hybrid slinkys 9-46 forever so I thought I'd pay the couple of £'s more for these and give them a go. Wasn't expecting much but wow! After a good stretch to bed them in I've been ripping the arse out of my Strat for last hour. What a sound! Would highly recommend for those who normally use the regular hydrid slinkys. No going back now.
