Stronger so they last longer.

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

Ernie Ball RPS electric guitar strings are reinforced versions of the standard Slinky. 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 these most often occur. RPS strings last longer and stay in tune better than conventional plain strings. Used on electric and acoustic guitars but, not 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 Mockingbird452 on 1/29/2008

    These strings are really great. They sound and feel great. I used the regular Ernie Ball 11 guaged strings before, those were alright, they always died out in a matter of hours because I sweat a lot, and by a lot I really mean it. But these strings haven't even started getting dirty yet, and its been weeks since Ive put them on! They're great for any type of music. I also got these because slash had them, haha. They're worth it!

    That's all I could say when I replaced these with the stock strings. I didn't think strings could make much difference, but it was like a punch in the face when I played the first note! I use an Epiphone Studio and the tone is amazing when I put these on. They must also be pretty sturdy because I had trouble cutting the excess off even while using heavy-duty wire cutters. These are really easy playing strings, too (good for bending, etc.). I play all types of music, and it doesn't even matter what type of music you play, these strings are for you!

    These strings are the shit! I've always had trouble finding a string that holds up to the kind of abuse I give them, until now. I can't think of another string that lasts as long,resists breakage as well,or sounds as good as these. I've been using these strings for over three years now,and am completely satisfied with the results. I play only Hard Rock (AC/DC,Lynyrd Skynyrd,Guns N' Roses,Aerosmith) and these strings sound great for all of them.
