OVERVIEW

Provides increased output, frequency response and strength.

Gauges .009 .011 .016 .024w .032 .042

M-Steel Super Slinky Electric Guitar Strings are made of M-Steel, short for Maraging Steel, 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. Super Slinkys are one of the most popular gauge combination preferences by guitar players.

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

Built to last and provide plenty of low-end response. Order today!

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2923 M-Steel Super Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

      I first put M-steel 11-52 gauge strings on my Ibanez S570DXQM loaded with Evolution Bridge and Neck pickups (empty middle pickup slot for now) and they don't sound THAT much better than cobalts. However, they are noticeably smoother and more consistent throughout the neck and fretboard. The low strings have a nice crunch to them while the high strings have a gorgeous singing quality. But, so do Cobalts. The mid-ranges on these strings are slightly scooped in the middle and raised on the low and high ends. This has meant for me that, even after a month of use, the mids haven't gotten weak or frail. Even when using an especially bright and middy pickup, they still retain that gorgeous, saturated character, even without piling on the gain. So far, these are the only strings that I have found that will deliver and retain the high gain tone that I've been searching for and do it consistently. They also make for some nice smooth, decently bright cleans with very little honk.

      However, I would not recommend putting these on a guitar that you use for blues/jazz. I put these on my strat, and I much prefer the Elixir 10's or 11's that I usually use on it.

      So, the bottom line is, as the title suggests, these strings are selectively amazing.

          I have used the EB Cobalt strings for a while now and love them. These supposedly have more cobalt in them than the Cobalt strings. Although I like the sound and how they play, they didn't sound THAT much better than the regular Cobalts but cost way more. They are nice but not 33 percent more per set nicer. I'm going back to the Cobalts - outstanding strings.

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2923 M-Steel Super Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              I use these strings on my Ibanez Premium RG with Dunan Distortions and compared to the cobalts I usually use, they feel a lot stronger, definitely even louder and the high strings really ring out a lot. On a clean sound they're very crisp and clear, for high gain they have a lot of output and clarity, even compared to the cobalts. I just got them not long ago so i can't comment on the life yet, but I assume it'll be as good, if not better than the cobalts. Overall excellent strings and i really love the new plain strings as i was kinda disappoint by the cobalts on changing the wraps. Great job on these!

                  Comments about Ernie Ball 2923 M-Steel Super Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

                  So I've been putting Ernie Ball coated strings on my Strat for a while now. I played around with cobalts and the tone was great, but I thought the life wasn't as long. The M-Steels don't seem awfully different from the cobalts. This certainly isn't a problem; they feel great and sound great. However, after how hard they marketed these strings as a "revolution" it just seems strange to me that they put out a product that's so similar to the cobalts.

                  Marketing gripes aside, these are good strings. Great tone, bright and snappy but not thin. They feel like very solid, strong strings. Like all Ernie Ball strings, they have great feel. Are they a revolution as advertised? No. Are they are great set of strings? Sure.
