The most popular Slinkys.

Gauges 9-11-16-24w-32-42.

Nickels are the most popular of the Ernie Ball Slinky guitar strings. They're made from nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around tin-plated hex-shaped steel core wire. The replacement strings produce a well-balanced all-around good sound.

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

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

Picked up the guitar again after 20+ years of not playing at all. Ouch, it takes a while to build up those callouses. I got the super slinky to ease the pain of string bends etc. The tone seems a little less fat with these but is still good on my Strat. No problem with breakage. I may switch back to the regular slinky strings after I feel my fingers are tough enough or I may not. No real problems yet with these.

After 40 years of playing on different strings I decided to try this brand. During installation the second sting broke. I didn't even have a chance to play on it. You may say it was an accident one out of a million. Maybe, but I am not buying this brand again.

Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Pink Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

I've played for 20+ years and played dozens of brands, gauges, you name it. These are by FAR the best strings IMHO ever made. Great tone, long lasting, great bendability, don't know what I'll do if they ever stop making 'em :)

      The 'deception' is they sell a set of 10 w/ 2 extra but if you buy the 2 sets of the 6 packs it's CHEAPER!!!

      Awesome Strings

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Pink Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

      I got a Fender Stratocaster last Christmas. It came with those Fender Bullet strings on it, so I decided to change them out. I had recently read an article on Jimmy Page, and he uses these strings. I bought a set, put them on my guitar, and I haven't had to do it again since. These strings have lasted a year of HEAVY play. I play usually two to three hours a day, especially blues stuff with a lot of bends. These are the best electric strings you will ever find, and for the price you can't afford not to get them.

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2223 Nickel Super Slinky Pink Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

      I've had these on my Strat since Thanksgiving and they still seem to be holding up well considering how much I play. They haven't really corroded or anything like that yet. By the way you can make mostly any strings last a lifetime if you wast your hands before you play or when they get sweaty/greasy *bar soap works the best*. But seriously try these out.
