Ernie Ball Strings!

The list of musicians who use Ernie Ball strings to make music reads like the who's who in contemporary music history. The story of the Slinky itself deserves its own place in rock and roll history. In the early 60s rock and roll guitar was exploding. More and more people came in to buy a set of guitar strings from Ernie Ball's music store, throwing away the sixth string, and then buying a banjo first string. This caused every string in the set to be much thinner. Ernie thought there should be a rock & roll string set packaged with these lighter gauges. "... I called (Fender) to explain my idea; and again, he reported back that Leo Fender wouldn't discuss it. Then I contacted the people at the Gibson guitar company and tried to talk them into making Rock & Roll strings, but they thought it was a lousy idea. OK; if you guys won't do it, then I really will! And that's how I came up with the first set of Slinky strings." All Ernie Ball strings share the classic simplicity, solid reliability, elegant function, and fair price that are synonymous with the name Ernie Ball.

These are Ernie's "Regular Slinky" strings. Made from pure nickel wire wrapped around tin plated hex shaped steel core wire. These guitar strings produce a warm rich tone.

Classic tone and feel

These string feel as buttery and warm as they sound. I love the supple softness of the pure nickel strings. Very easy on the old fingers!

Great strings

Been using these for a while. Feel good on your fingers and sound great.

#1 string choice

I love these strings! My hands don't sweat more than the next guy, and these strings don't corrode like other brands I've tried.

MIght as well if you have to buy them anyway....

I love using pure nickel wrap over steel core strings and the EB 2251s are actually priced much better than the Gibson and Fender brands who want to try to push then at you as "vintage". I'm string agnostic and to me any brand is as good as another so the cheapest for the type I like is the way I go and currently that makes it these regular slinky's.
