These Slinky Strings Make Your 6-string Electric Sound Great!

Ernie Ball strings have been a top choice for players of all types since the early 1960s, when guitarists came into Ernie Ball's music store, customizing their string gauges to make their axes easier to play. After fruitless attempts to interest major guitar manufacturers in a lighter set of strings, Ernie Ball decided to start making his own. When you open a pack of his strings today, you know you're getting a quality set of strings designed to give you great tone, reliable performance, and long life. You can't go wrong when you string up with Ernie Ball strings!

Ernie Ball's Regular Slinky Lime electric guitar strings are made from nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around a tin-plated hex-shaped steel core wire. They offer a great balanced sound that's neither bright nor too dark.

Epic strings

Best strings I've played for drop c and drop d. Good for metal to hard rock to metalcore to prog metal

Great, Reliable Strings

EB ten gauges are hands down the best strings I've ever used. Great sustain and bite and on top of that, they almost never break. The price helps too

Great Strings! Greater Store!!!!

I've been playing for decades semi-professionally(hundreds of paying gigs) and there just aren't any better strings out there. I suppose that's why Eric Clapton and Keith Richards used them as well. But this really isn't a review of the strings, It's a review of Sweetwater. I ordered three sets but they were apparently out of them. I got a call from Sweetwater within five minutes of my order apologizing for any delay. The strings showed up at my door out in California a couple of days later with a huge Thank You note and some Christmas candy, which absolutely thrilled my children. Let me remind you, this was not an order for a $3,000.00 boutique amplifier, this was and order for three sets of guitar strings. Based on my experience, Sweetwater is an exemplary music comapny in all regards and I would recommend them in the highest regard allowable my man.

Nice Strings

Great strings. Sound nice, work good, look nice, etc. What more do you want? They don't cost a ton of money, and they do the job. I have them on a strat and a Les Paul and they are awesome on both. I play an hour or so every day, and they seem to hold up pretty good. No reason to buy really expensive strings, these are perfect.

Great Well-Balanced Strings!

I have since the start relied on Ernie Ball for my strings on electric guitars. Part of the reason is how popular and wide spread they are. My favorite Artists/Bands use them too! ; Jimmy Page, The Edge, Jimmy Eat World, Switchfoot, Anberlin. These strings provide both warm and bright tones. Best of both worlds right?! Providing a balanced range, with clarity, and sustain. Work great with not just Standard Tuning but also; Drop D, Half Step, Drop D#. These are a must equip for your electric guitars!
