So i've been playing guitar since 2015, and unless they're sold out, i've always bought Ernie Ball strings. This has been a long running issue here in the Philippine market, but for some reason even before they're sold to customers like me, the strings have rust spots, mainly on the first 2 strings. This problem has caused me to switch brands which was kind of hard because i've become so used to the feeling of Ernie Ball strings that when I use other brands, it would take me a good amount of time before my fingers would feel alright with the new strings.

I would like for any Ernie Ball representative to get in touch with the distributor (JB Music and Sports) and find out why this is. Hell, we weren't even able to get Ernie Ball Paradigms here in the Philippines until sometime in 2018, almost a year after its release.
