Stronger so they last longer.

Ernie Ball RPS strings are reinforced versions of the standard Slinky electric guitar strings. A patented winding of bronze wire is tightly wrapped around the lock twist of the ball end. String slippage and breakage are minimized at the ball end where they most often occur. RPS strings last longer and stay in tune better than conventional plain strings. These strings can be used on electric and acoustic guitars but not on classical guitars.

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

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

    As reviewed by Steve on 2/11/2015

    Love these strings. Clean, bright, ringing tone and easy to bend. I like the Hybrid gauge for the lighter top end, but sometimes 9's tend to unravel at the ball. The end wrap eliminates this problem, and I haven't lost one since switching to the RPS type. I use these mainly for blues. On a short scale guitar, like an SG or a 335, (I use them on a custom, 24.75", short scale Strat and a '64 Hagstrom H2 with a 24.375" scale), I suggest replacing the 16p "G" string with an Ernie Ball 18w. The heavier gauge wound string compensates for the lower tension of the short scale, and makes for a fuller mid range. If they made this set with a wound "G", it would be perfect. IMHO.

    As reviewed by Thomas on 11/24/2014

    I really like my new strings. I can still easily bend the strings but they're not too flimsy...I like some tension for control and sound quality....but I like the thick low strings for a good thick bottom end...I noticed that another blues player friend of mine had just bought the exact same Guess we were both wanting the same thing...great price and great quality!
