OVERVIEW

Increased output, frequency response and strength with thicker bottom strings and thin top strings.

Gauges .010 .013 .017 .030 .042 .052.

M-Steel Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Slinky Strings are the perfect hybrid set for those who like thick bottom strings without sacrificing the ability to solo on smaller strings. Ernie Ball's M-Steel strings are made of M-Steel, short for Maraging Steel, is a superalloy used in high stress applications for the aerospace and defense industries.

The wound strings are comprised of a patented Super Cobalt alloy wrapped around a Maraging steel hex core wire, producing a richer and fuller tone with powerful low end response. M-Steel plain strings are comprised of a specially tempered steel for maximum fatigue resistance. A patented winding of steel around the ball end of the plain strings reduces slippage, breakage and stays in tune better than conventional plain strings.

FEATURES
  • Ultra high output guitar strings
  • Constructed of Maraging Steel
  • Super Cobalt alloy wrapped around a Maraging Steel hex core wire
  • Provides maximum fatigue resistance

Freshen up your guitar with a pack of these great strings. Order today!

Comments about Ernie Ball 2915 M-Steel Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

These new M-steel strings are not worth the price. I have been using EB Cobalts for the last year and now have them on all 12 of my electric guitars. Because I have been impressed by Ernie Ball's recent innovations in string making I thought I would give these M-steels a try. First impression is that they do not have the nice silky feel on the fretboard that the Cobalts do. The one thing I can say about the M-steels is they are loud acoustically which means they are also loud going through the pickups and on to your amp. I found this to be a bad thing because my rig is already set up for the cobalts strings output and these were actually so loud that they were overdriveing the front end of my amp and creating a extra unwanted highend fizziness that sounded terrible. Besides this the M-steels break easily, you heard it here first. Specifically the wound strings are prone to breakage because they have a smaller core wire and extra large windings. My guitar has locking tuners and 3 of the 6 strings snapped off at the peg when I tuned to pitch. The wound low E string and D strings did this and the non-would G string also snapped at the peg. I though the non-wound M-steel were supposed to be ultra strong? I have never had this problem with any other string type. I was using a set of M-steel 10-52 btw so they are pretty thick to begin with and should never have this kind of breakage problem. As for how long they last I wouldn't know because I was so mad at myself for paying for this M-steel gimmick that I went and ordered myself another set of cobalts and threw the M-steels in the trash. Cobalts Rule!

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2915 M-Steel Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

    Amazing tone!!! I've been playing these on a Schecter C-1 Blackjack ATX in mostly drop tunings (C & D) through a Mesa Dual Rec Half stack and they are amazing! The slightest bends, hammer ons, roll offs theyre all there, loud and clear. These really are the most expressive strings ever. The lows and highs are phenominal, its like I just stole John Petrucci's rig. Your tone gets really tight and crisp. Try these you will not regret it!!

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2915 M-Steel Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

      I am not sure if it was the batch of strings or what but these are horrible. I have never had strings break on me when re-stringing until today. I bought 2 sets of the 10-52s 2915 and for what ever reason I broke 3 strings. 2 D and and a G strings. Maybe they were not tempered correctly. Hey it happens but was there a problem or is there a problem with these? I have used primarily slinkies on my guitar collection, but happened to have an old set of Daddarios left to finish restringing my guitar. The Daddarios worked with no problems.

      I had high hopes today to finally give them a test, yes I have had them a few months but now I don't know what to think.

      These are pretty expensive strings and should not have this problem.

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2915 M-Steel Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

        These are THE BEST SOUNDING STRINGS you will ever use for your guitar, guaranteed. If you want more tone out of your instrument, regardless of style, get these strings. They add so much to the sound of your guitar. And I don't know what that other guys is talking about, these things have never broken on me, while cobalts have broken on me several times. Plus, these strings don't have that awful rough texture of cobalts. When I used cobalts I thought that I was going to grind the frets off of my guitar.
