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 8-string Slinky 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.

Scale length

Great strings but only if your 8 string is in the scale length of 25.5"! So no baritone lengths like 26.5" or 27" etc. The low F# strings last winding just goes past the nut so you can string it through your tuning machine still. Great strings thou!!!

These strings would be great, if the taper was longer. Don't buy if your 8 string is 28" or more. I tried to string my schecter with them and the taper was about an inch too short. They work perfectly if your guitar has a scale length of 27" or less, but don't be like me and buy 3 packs of them thinking they would be the right size.
