OVERVIEW

Ernie Ball 2215 Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom Slinky Electric Guitar Strings are the perfect hybrid set for those who like thick bottom strings without sacrificing the ability to solo on smaller strings. The wound strings are made from nickel-plated, steel wire wrapped around a hex-shaped steel core wire. The plain strings are made of specially tempered, tin-plated, high-carbon steel, producing a well-balanced tone for your guitar.

All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and the most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance, and long life.

Ernie Ball is a pioneer of rock and roll guitar strings. Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Steve Vai, and Slash are among the long list of Slinky players.

Gauges: 10-13-17-30-42-52.

Bendable uppers and power chord lowers.

I've used these strings for quite sometime now. (Approx. 3 or 4 years.) They sound great, on a clean setting and heavy saturated distortion setting. I like the thickness of the Low E,A, and D strings. In a clean tone setting, they provide great bass, supporting midrange, and clean highs. In a distortion setting, depending upon your taste (Mine is very heavily distorted to a point)they punch through cleanly and allow tough power chords, and at the same time give a great clean lead sound when soloing. The strings themselves are very durable, and last longer than most other strings. However, if your not used to playing with heavy gauges in the bottom-end, they may cause you to get tired faster. To even that out, they'll make your dexterity increase in strength. Hope this helps, and keep rockin'.

The treble side strings are nice.... really nice if you ask me but the Low E is horrible :/ It sounds stupidly bright, to be fair I am usin a Strat but its really not what I expected from a .52, 3 on features because well.... they're strings? :L On the plus side I havent noticed them getting too dirty and Ive played them everyday for 2 weeks, prefer D'Addario's Med Top/Heavy Bottom set though.

    I use these on my D Tuned guitar that handles Grunge. I like to fat bottom and upper strings are the right sizing for quick lead work.

              I put these on my 70's Epiphone Riviera, (335) and am happy with the result. Chunky low end with flexibility in the top 3 strings. Good compromise, and suprisingly good choice in the gauges of the low strings. I was expecting they were a little too fat. They work fine. Give them a try. Too big? try the Hybrids. Its a little lighter.

                  I've been playing mostly slide on electrics...lots of it. I generally use Open 'D'.
                  I traded into an SG that the PO had just put a set of these on, so I left them on as I noodled around on my new toy...but think I have a new favorite set!
                  I have been using DR Pure Blues 11's for about five years, and felt they were the perfect string for my playing (after playing with "custom Mixed sets" for ten years up to them).
                  My prior experiences with lighter strings on the high two was that my tone and volume disappeared once the band cranked up, but these let my slide playing stand out front as well as the DR's, and the looser feel all across the board is quite a treat! The lower strings are not 'twangy'.
                  Love'Em!

                    I tune to drop D alot and they really held up to the task. I bend my leads all over the place so the smaller high string were great. I have tried alot of others, none compare.

                        Amazing strings, love the low end sound yet I don't have to chop my fingers up with thicker gauge higher strings. Bends are effortless and creamy, yet low end chugging is tight and bassy!!
