    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.

    Nice but not that nice

    By LEG5

    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

    By STRATOSPHERE-iXPPs

    from south FLA

    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!
