See what Slash, Jimmy Page, and Eric Clapton are raving about.

Ernie Ball Coated Electric Strings combine the latest technological advances in string manufacturing. All wound guitar strings are treated with a micro-thin layer of enamel that prevents decay and corrosion up to five times more than uncoated sets. In addition to treating the wound strings, Ernie Ball has taken it a step further by reinforcing the plain strings with a patented winding of titanium wire.

Titanium's inherent strength prevents string breakage, string slippage, and is proven to keep your guitar strings in tune better than conventional plain strings. Ernie Ball's No Even Slinky strings maintain the feel and sound of uncoated sets, combining the added protection with the vibrant tone Ernie Ball customers have relied on for over 50 years. Perfect match for those who experience frequent string breakage.

Comments about Ernie Ball 3126 Coated Electric Not Even Slinky Guitar Strings:

I put these on my 27" 7 string (with a low .074 on the bottom), and I must say that tuned to Bb standard, they still felt very good and tight. Normally I would opt to use at least a .058 for this, but the store was out! They feel fantastic - not too slippery like some other coated strings that I've tried.

I do have two gripes with these strings. Firstly, they are INSANELY bright sounding. I play mostly post-metal/grungy/sludgy stuff, and the definition is simply too much for my tastes. However, if you're looking for a lot of string definition, these guys are great. They would be amazing for drop-C (maybe even drop B) metal. For my style, though, they're just too bright. Personal taste. Also, the plain/unwound .024 is just stupid. Not sure what EB was doing here. Make it a wound .024 and you're going to make everyone a lot happier.

All in all, great strings. Great definition (if that's your thing), super solid feeling, and I have a hunch that they're going to last a long while!

Comments about Ernie Ball 3126 Coated Electric Not Even Slinky Guitar Strings:

These are my favorite roundwound strings and i use them on a broad range of guitar types: Gretsch w/ Surf 90s (single coil DeArmond-type), Gretsch with Filtertrons, and various acoustic archtops. I find they have a very long life because of the coating, but also the alloys they use seem to maintain tone for a long time.

The strings are coated, but they use an enamel on the wrap wire before they wrap them, so they feel just like normal strings, but a little more slick. I really love the texture that the coating adds. The coating immediately gives you a "2 day played in" feel and sound which i LOVE for a few reasons: 1. I hate fresh string sound. 2. It gives you consistent tone from day 1 to day 45. It is great to be able to open a new pack, and have you guitar sound like it did with strings that were a month old.

The strings seem to have a good deal of mass which makes them really nice on acoustic archtops, especially when you have a floating pickup. They have the tension to drive the top, and have a slightly darker sound that makes them more like acoustic strings. Awesome.

The one big problem with these specific strings is that the 24 G is plain. That is a very thick solid wire. It makes the G really stick out tonally and it huts to play. I throw it out and replace it with a wound 26 coated that i buy in bulk from a string vendor. If Ernie Ball would fix this issue they would be perfect strings.
