Best strings ever
May 11, 2020
After a little break in, these are the smoothest, best responding and sounding strings I've tried. Put them on the Squire tele that I practice with and now the other guitars are just sitting, till I get more of these.
ProsSmooth and responsive.
ConsExpensive compared to what I was using.

To donebylee: well they are round core strings, so if you cut them without putting a bend in the winding will come loose.

same flaws
February 6, 2014
I am looking for the set that came on a used guitar I bought, I ordered the Les Paul sig set after these. These strings have the same design flaws of size/tension as any $5 set out there. Bottom E bends, B rolls under my finger, G bends, D rolls under. Whoever designed the used set I have, was a guitar player but I dont think a guitar player designed this set.

Might be good strings, but I will never know
October 1, 2012
I bought these here for a guitar with a FR tremolo. Big mistake. I couldn't get them to work no matter which end I trimmed, string died as soon as tension was applied. Pyramids, which I purchased at the same time, work perfectly.

These may well be great strings, but unless someone clearly demonstrates how to trim these so they will work with a FR, I won't spending another $18 on them.

best strings ever, hands down
March 20, 2011
OK, pros and cons.

Con: they cost a lot, and that's all.

Pros: these strings are the most responsive, dynamic, beautiful sounding strings I've ever played. I've been playing since I was 11, now I'm 58, so do the math. I've used everything out there, these strings are IT. I use the be bop set on my archtop jazz box, I use blues sliders on all my electrics (2 PRS, a Les Paul, a strat, 3 teles and a couple others, p-90s and humbuckers) and the plectrum model on my acoustic. Once you get used to these strings, you'll notice the difference when you 'switch back'. i used to use D'adarrios, GHS and Elixir. No more.

These are very clear and musical sounding strings, and give just the right personality to my humbucker equipped Tele.

Melodic and mellow, superb sustain,
touch sensitive as Katrina Law. Durable and reliable. Outstanding Tone demands Blue Sliders. They are worth the extra cost. A Big A+++.

Superb sound for my Tele
September 25, 2010
I have an American Telecaster. My usual strings have been D'Addario XL 11-49. These are nickel wound and have a very clean sound. I tried the Thomastik Sliders on a lark and am crazy about what I got.
This was like a visit to the tech and a new pair of pick-ups. All of a sudden I had a real mid-range, better balance and greater tonal range.
Lots of color, easy to play without being rubber bands. These are a real joy.
I am pretty picky about sound, especially tonal clarity. I have found that not only does my clean signal sound better, but heavy gain sounds better as well across a range of amplifier models.
I encourage you to give them a try.

ridiculously great
July 22, 2010
Buy these strings, they're fantastic. I have a Les Paul with a 50's neck and was having such trouble getting my smaller female hands into position for barre chords-problem ridiculously solved with these strings. The tone is great, too. I've tried DR Blues, Elixir Nano, Gibson Vintage reissue, Gibson LP, RotoSound etc.....these are well worth the pennies spent. I'm very pleased.

These things are worth the price because they last longer without the coating the Elixirs and strings like that have on them. They also feel great on your fingers and don't feel sticky at all when you play on them. I love these stings and recommend them to anyone looking for a great feeling, long lasting, even sounding string.

String Review
August 16, 2009
To my ears these are absolutely outstanding strings. I use them primarily on a CS 52 (RI) Tele. They are just excellent feeling, and playing, strings. Notes are full and rich, harmonics abundant, and chords don't blur. As for longevity, their life span seems to be about that of any other high end strings (which seems to be about 40 hours for me).

Review: Blues Sliders (Thomastik-Infeld)
August 14, 2009
I'm extremely satisfied with these strings. Harmonics are rich and abundant, chords come out extremely complex and single notes are tonally full. I would say that these strings have comparable lifetimes to that of any other high end string I use regularly.

These are a tie with two others (Pyramid and Pirazzi), for my favorite strings. All of which, of course, have their own individual characteristics, but these have captured my attention of late. Be advised, this review is application specific to a CS 52 (ri) Tele/Supro 24.
