Slinky strings ideal for rock or blues.

Ernie Ball Power Slinky Electric Strings are a perfect match for those who like chunky rhythms for rock 'n' roll or for blues. Power Slinky strings have long been favored by Slash, Metallica, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd due to their thicker gauge combination, providing a slightly more powerful tone.

Power Slinky wound strings are made from nickel-plated, steel wire wrapped around a hex-shaped steel core wire. Power Slinky plain strings are made of specially tempered, tin-plated, high-carbon steel, producing a well-balanced tone for your guitar.

All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and the most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance, and long life.

Ernie Ball is a pioneer of rock and roll guitar strings. Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Steve Vai, and Slash are among the long list of Slinky players.

Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-48.

  • Heavy, Mean and so metal.

    As reviewed by Guitar_Hero on 10/20/2006

    Ernie Ball makes what I believe to be the perfect Metal and Hard Rock strings in the world. The give the ultimate kick with distortion in the lower end and still manage to give incredible definition with the higher end for soloing. They stand up to my constant shredding abuse (I change them every 2 months with pretty heavy usage) and de- and re-tuning between standard and drop c and d. A must have for any Metal head.

  • great strings

    As reviewed by SpiritCrusher on 4/10/2007

    i used to use DR strings until i got some of these. i went to a local guitar shop looking for new strings, with ernie ball not even slinkies in mind. However, they didn't have those, so i got some of these, and I'm glad I did. They stay in tune great, i can tune my Washburn down to drop B and it'll stay in tune even if i bang the hell outof it during band practice. They're perfect for heavy, chunky riffs, shredding, or just jamming. Highly recommended!

  • Metal Strings

    As reviewed by jotrimble on 10/9/2006

    These strings are great for metal and hard rock..great tone, you just have to play harder to get the good tone. They are pretty much maid to sound like your guitar is tuned down two steps, power slinky should give you the idea these are heavy strings for heavy sound.
