Nice but not that nice

By LEG5

from Central Florida

Comments about Ernie Ball 2253 Super Slinky Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

Don't get me wrong, these are good strings. I purchased them for use on my Strat just to see if they were worth the extra money. For me they didn't last very long, and I honestly didn't see much difference between these and the traditional Ernie Ball Super Slinky strings (plus I believe the traditional ones last longer).

Amazing Smooth Tone

By -6t0aMeaC

from Garner, NC

Comments about Ernie Ball 2253 Super Slinky Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

First off, I bought these strings last summer for my new Epiphone Les Paul Standard because the strings that came with it sounded all screwy. After I got these bad boys put in, I was in heaven. All around great tone, smooth, round, and the feel is soft and easy to bend. I was able to play for hours on end with these strings because they were so comfortable. If you are a lead or rhythm guitarist looking for good tone and playability, look no further. The ernie ball "rock and roll" super slinkys will cure your ills.

Simply the Best

Comments about Ernie Ball 2253 Super Slinky Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

All of my Stratocasters are strung with EB super slinky strings. The sound performance cannot be beat for my style of play. They have great tonal presence and brightness and stand up well to my heavy bending style. I tend to change my strings after 8 to 10 hours of play, so I am not the best judge of longevity, but oh the sweet sound and feel of a new set of slinkys. It is truly addictive and they cost no more than a burger doodle value meal!

smooth

Comments about Ernie Ball 2253 Super Slinky Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

I've been using these for two years now, it depends what you want. These make a much deeper and smooth tone, so great for nice soul-full leads, but keeps the clarity for faster shredders. But if you want a really bright and sharp attack, look elsewhere. But they just FEEL more flexible and smoother, so awesome. SO basically, this strings are good for rock and blues, or for people that just want a deeper sound.

I didn't know how much of a difference strings make. I used to have old Washburns on my LX20 and i thought they were good. but, WOW, so much of a difference in tone!!!

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2253 Super Slinky Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

    I'm an experienced collector with a deep passion for tone, I don't believe in adding anything to my personal collection without that Magic Mojo being a key ingredient.
    Throughout my 35 years of musical appreciation and expirience I don't believe in absolutes or in something being the best for everything, with that being said, here's my review...
    These strings sound fantastic and mostly collecting vintage names I find these are my new Mojo, easy flexibility so bends are easy on the fingers, the sound was instant brilliance so plugging up my electrics wasn't even necessary to notice the difference.
    Plugged in and the rich harmonics came flying out the fire!
    Your gonna love these!

    Service and delivery comments:

    The service was very professional; I recieved notifications as the process was step by step happening, loved it...and there wasn't even the slightest damaged bend on my package when I received my classic strings.

      Love that blues overdrive sound these strings produce. The feel of the wound strings is very pleasing too.

          They don't break on me, and sound great. Notes are clearer and fuller. I've tried every pure nickel wound string out there, and I keep coming back to these. At this price, you can't beat them.

            I have used ernie ball slinky stings for more than 20 years I was using fender lite gauge .09 -42
            until I discovered these, the tone and feel are far better in my opinion . I play Gibson and fender guitars
            I get much more life out of these strings .... Rick
