Classic Ernie Ball Tone!

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 Hybrid Slinky Orange 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.

Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky Set

Have been using these strings since 1980. I use a whammy bar a lot of the time, and these strings resist breakage better than others I've tried. Used to use Fender Super Bullets, but they broke many times using the whammy bar. Uber-fast shipping!

Trouble free

I experimented with various gauges and came across these years ago. I like the 9 on the high e and the heavier bottom 3 that come with the set. You really only bend the top 3 strings for most rock and blues so this hybrid set is a good combination. Never had a string break yet and I usually leave a set on for a year or longer anyway. Strings are one of the parts of the guitar that I rarely have ever had an issue with as long as I've had my guitars strung with these. I have four. I've got about five or six packages set aside and will probably order more in case there is a bad harvest of strings this coming year, or there is an infestation of string borers from overseas.

Ernie Ball #2222 Hybrid Slinky Nickel Wound strings

I have used these strings for years. A big part of my tone on my 58 AVS Telecaster. I gig out almost every weekend with my band. Light strings for bends, with out losing tone on lower/thicker gauge strings. Thanks for the sweets !!! lol

Dude. I've been playing since 1985 when I was whee tweenager. I wanna make sweet you know what to these strings. These are the strings I order time and time again. F the Cobalt version, they suck and break upon playing, I play with the real deal, nickel-wound non cobalt mothers. Sweet flexible 9ers playing along with phat bassy 46ers. Order the 5 pack for 20 bucks while you can MFers. These strings are the shizzesims!
