OVERVIEW

Stronger so they last longer.

Gauges 09-11-16-26-36-46.

Ernie Ball RPS strings are reinforced versions of the standard Slinky electric guitar strings. A patented winding of bronze wire is tightly wrapped around the lock twist of the ball end. String slippage and breakage are minimized at the ball end where they most often occur. RPS strings last longer and stay in tune better than conventional plain strings. These strings can be used on electric and acoustic guitars but not on classical guitars.

All 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.

      Great for bending g and not breaking. Last longer than any strings I've used as I bend alot. I play so much that I broke 4 to 6 strings a week and these last at least 2 weeks before 1 breaks. Tone is a little brighter than

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2241 Hybrid Slinky RPS 9 Electric Guitar Strings:

      Love the strings but keep in mind if you don't have doulble locking system (flyd rose type brige), like my prs se single cut is a hard taile bridge and even with locking tuners these strings can slip out of tune espically if not played on for a while, but that can happen with any guitar... but even constan play the g and sometims d string slip out of tune the most atlest on my prs not my jackson. Thats not much of a real problem for me but can be for some other guitarists out there.
      I love eb hybris slinks to begin with the rps are not as bright as the nickle or as durable as the titanium. The last reviewer ... knocked them well ... .09's are not suited for drop tunings as low as C any how... .9's can take 1/2, whole step, drop d (and doule drop d), and some slight mild drop custome tunings... but for really low drop tunings below d go thicker guages.
      Verry good all round nice warm tone I use them on a jackson dxmg dinky and my prs se single cut, both (jackson has sd invader 8b, my prs has sd sh-5b custom) have warm sounding(hot) pickups the strings low end is warm articulate.... the high strings are bright and not overpowering verry drurable and great for bending and vibrato. Like and strings over time start sounding a little flat (low end) and dull (highs) when itsa time to change them out.
      Little more than the nickle but worth it!

      kinda dissapointed

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2241 Hybrid Slinky RPS 9 Electric Guitar Strings:

      I always use ernie balls, I love them. I usually use gause .11s though due to the fact I play in drop c. I thought what the heck, I'll try them on my ibanez xpt700 since I've started to shred more on it. I needed looser strings to play better cause tight isn't always good. I reajusted my xpt to float with .9s on it and tuned it to drop c. I pulled up the bar and the bottom string broke. I cant belive ernie ball failed me after all this time...
