OVERVIEW

Slinky strings ideal for rock or blues.

Ernie Ball Power Slinky Electric Strings are a perfect match for those who like chunky rhythms for rock 'n' roll or for blues. Power Slinky strings have long been favored by Slash, Metallica, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd due to their thicker gauge combination, providing a slightly more powerful tone.

Power Slinky wound strings are made from nickel-plated, steel wire wrapped around a hex-shaped steel core wire. Power Slinky plain strings are made of specially tempered, tin-plated, high-carbon steel, producing a well-balanced tone for your guitar.

All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and the most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance, and long life.

Ernie Ball is a pioneer of rock and roll guitar strings. Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Steve Vai, and Slash are among the long list of Slinky players.

Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-48.


The time to realize you should have bought a pile of strings is not when you're onstage. Order now and rest easy.

I love these strings.

Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

I just put these on a few hours ago and I'm already hooked. I've always played with thinner strings like Super Slinkys and now I'm experimenting with some higher gages. These strings have awesome tone and overall sound. You have to play a little bit harder to get the whole thing though. They stay nice and tight when they are down-tuned too. They are awesome for lower tuning... I play Drop C and these strings are the best I've ever played. But, moving up from thinner strings takes an adjustment. The high end is much thicker and harder to bend, but I'll get over that, and for the first little while, my fingers started to become unusually sore. But it's all good. I love these strings, and you should go get some.

Ernie Balls have the best tone and the Power Slinkys. Stay in tune. Sure its harder to bend or do legato runs,but its well worth the effort for the tone.

awsome strings

Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

I've been reading some of these reviews, and I have to disagree with some of the things people have been saying about these strings. I agree, they do last for quite a while, they do work well for rhythem, and they do sound great. But, alot of people have been saying that these strings arent very good for soloing. Thats just not true. I use these stings for all my soloing, and they work better then any 9 or 10 guage string out there. These strings give you such an amazing tone!
