Bought them for a HB TE-52 project. Wanted to try the NYXL series and wasn't dissappointed. Feels a lot better than some slinkies. Sound wise this set seems to be a little unbalanced overall because of a little heavier bottom for 9's. Maybe something that tinkering with pickup setup a little more would fix but changed them to a 1046 set for a preferred personal taste for thicker top end. Can't go wrong with NYXL.
