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 "Super 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 Rock n Roll

These strings take me back to when I first started playing. I used to use the Dean Markley Magnum strings and they had this soft spongy feel to them that I missed in other strings for several years. These strings take me right back to that soft feel and warm tone. Love these strings!

Hands Down The Best

I think Brandon Eden at Sweetwater will verify that I have tried every brand of pure nickel strings out there over the past three years. I play the blues and rock on my stratocaster and I use the 2253 Super Slinky 9-42 strings. They last twice as long as the others, they intonate perfectly every time, and have that sweet warm tone I am looking for. They are priced affordably which always helps! Buy a set and check out the back of the package and see who is using these strings. Later... robert lowry
