M-Steel Power Slinky Electric Strings are a perfect match for those who like chunky rhythms for rock-and-roll or blues. 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.ï»¿ï»¿

Comments about Ernie Ball 2920 M-Steel Power Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:
I've been using these strings on guitars of various different scale length and pickup types. I've found them to be a major upgrade from nickel strings (and that goes for all m-steel strings). After giving them a go for a while, I would recommend these strings to jazz, hard rock, and metal players primarily. The strings are very heavy on the low tones - so getting a very nice warm sound is very easy. They are probably also well-suited for alternate/drop tunings since they really add a lot of tension to the guitar. If your like me and you player rock/power chords/blues stuff, I'd consider a few things first. They pair well with cutting pickups like single coils and mini humbuckers because they help to darken the tone and eliminate some harshness. With beefier pickups (I have an SG), they can become somewhat inarticulate. You could of course adjust amp settings and the like, but they have a natural tendency to be dark, bassy, and loud - something humbuckers already are, so you may want to go for a set that compliments that set up better. I would suggest the 10-46 set instead. You still get that great low end and crisp mids/highs, but they seem to balance better with higher out put humbuckers. Another thing worth mentioning - the set is G-heavy, so you're going to hear that G-string dominate at times. They are harder to fret/bend than other strings (not a surprise), and they do have a distinct, and somewhat unpleasant feel. But the trade off is you get better tone. I'd get these on Gibson-style scales with brighter pickups. Or if you're a jazz master or a drop-tuner. If you have a strat-style or need some strings for both lead and rhythm, I'd suggest the set of 10s. Right now I have these in a Firebird and I have a set of 10s in a G and L Legacy with lace sensors and in an SG and I feel pretty comfortable with the matches.
