We received these:Harley Benton Coated Electric Guitar 009 strings as a complimentary gift with a replacement item we had sent to us. I've put them onto a Strat. I've just built for one of our members & I popped the top E while I was doing so, (it was probably my fault 'cause I've done it before) & had to fit another onto it. They took a while to settle down but they began holding tune after they had stretched. He said he was happy with the feel & play-ability of them. I'm not a good enough guitar player to offer an opinion, other than they seem as good as many other much more expensive guitar strings I've heard.
