    FAKE Ernie Ball Strings!

    i recently stumbled upon a fake EB string. i hope the EB company looks into these. i saw all kinds and models of EB strings faked and the quality is nowhere near the original. i cant seem to find comparison videos so i made one.

    but really, the fakes sell like hotcakes. and quality is absurd.

    Don't buy your strings from Walmart! I bought some "Gibson" strings from Walmart and they were the deadest, most toneless strings I ever bought. They must have been Chinese fakes, because I've bought the same brand of Gibson strings before, from a music store, and they sounded good. Those Walmart "Gibson" strings were awful!
