OVERVIEW

Bendable uppers and power chord lowers.

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.

Amazing and Fast!

I play in Drop C tuning to D standard. These strings are perfect for them. I can easily do bends while still having tight bottoms!

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.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2215 Nickel Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

          The strings that came with my new electric guitars are a bit thin sounding, especially the bass strings. They were a little too thin and buzzy for my taste. (I am not a heavy metal player.) I'm used to a fuller bass sound with solid crystal highs and that's what you get with these strings. All Ernie Ball electric strings are top quality, but the Skinny Top/Heavy bottom are perfect for all-around solid electric guitar sound, especially rock and blues. I can bend them as much as I want and they spring back in tune. Thanks Ernie Ball and Musician's Friend! They have provided elevated excitement and enjoyment by transforming good sounding electric guitars to great sounding guitars.

            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.
