    Comments about Ernie Ball 2252 Classic Pure Nickel Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

    For years, the Hybrid Slinky has been my "string of choice"! It is, simply, the best at any price. The pure nickel is better than the plated wire, so be aware of that-but that being said, both are superior products.

      I just won't use anything else. The pure nickel wraps are a new discovery, they feel nicer to the fingers

        What can you say about these stings. They have great tone and keep tune very well. Also easy on the fingers. Best of all: Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden) plays them - so you cant go wrong!

        Tone Monsters

        By 

        from North Georgia

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2252 Classic Pure Nickel Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

        I've tried many string guages made with different materials and these strings are a real find. In my quest for tone I went gone thrugh my 11's period. but found the two note bends very difficult so I went back to 10's. I tried RB Hybrids and found them a bit thin. Of course some of that had to to with the way my amps were set up. I saw these EB Rock n Roll Hybrids and decided to give them a try. I believe I've found the strings I've been looking for. They truly have the rounded tone of 10's and yes maybe even 11's. I would highly recommend at least trying a set to see for yourself. Bet you get more!
        Once they are stretched in they are very good at staying in tune.
        Pricey, but worth it.

        You can't go wrong

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2252 Classic Pure Nickel Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

        These babys are amazing. They're not too heavy and not too light. They're just right for normal as well as dropped D stuff. They're so much more comfortable than steel strings and they have a purer sound to them as well. They are definately worth it. I've had one pair for 6 months and they haven't broken yet. Hope this review was helpful.

        If you have a strat or tele and you want a clean tone this is your strings. the D string on my strat has gotten bad fret wear. i must just press harder on the strings than most people
