Ernie Ball Strings
Not sure if you've ever heard Ernie Ball strings in action before? You might be surprised! Ever listened to Metallica or Green Day? Then you've heard them - they're go-to choices for James Hetfield and Billie Joe Armstrong. And those are just two names from a roster that also includes Tom DeLonge, Slash, Kirk Hammet, The Edge, Angus Young, Jimmy Page and Buddy Guy. With a list of artists like that standing behind Ernie Ball strings, you know that they're something special even if you've never tried them out for yourself before.
The MVP in the Ernie Ball camp is definitely the Slinky series. These were Ernie Ball's original creations, developed at a time when lighter-gauge, highly-flexible strings were largely unheard-of. In fact, you can probably credit Ernie Ball Slinkys with creating that class of string in the first place. Check out the 2221 Nickel Slinky Lime Guitar Strings for an example from this impressive family; with their nickel composition, these are the perfect choice for perfecting your classic rock techniques. And you can get them in bulk packs, too, if you want to make sure you've always got spares close at hand.
There's a lot more to Ernie Ball strings than just the Slinkys, but those are definitely a great starting point! Where you take your instrument's sound is completely up to you, so don't hesitate to look through the full range of options. Whatever your personal preferences, you're sure to find a set of Ernie Ball strings to suit them.
