These strings supply heavy low end and definite highs. The thickness of the strings are great. The 52 gauge 6th string is great for Drop-D, and it also gives normal tuning a nice low end crunch. I'm never going to buy another kind of strings, and if I do, it will be Ernie Ball. *A major Plus+--they're made in America.

    String these on my drop-D tuned guitar (an Epi Les Paul). No loss of tension, sound great, consistent feel. Great Product.

      This gives you the thick substantial rhythms and bendy, easily played licks.

        Comments about Ernie Ball 2215 Nickel Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

        Went to my local GC to get some D'Addario strings that I thought would work great for my heavy music style, wanted the medium top/heavy bottomed strings...but they were out of stock so these Ernie Ball's were recommended instead. I've never played EB's before, as I usually play GHS Guitar Boomers, but was looking to see if any other brands would work better for the low-end tone I was looking for. Well, I was pleasantly surprised with these Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom EB's. I'm able to drop tune to C or even B# without too much slack in the strings. And the plain high 10-17 gauged strings are great for tapping and solos. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking for that low end action without sacrificing high end options!

        I like the sound and feel of these strings. I've gone through a few packs though because strings breaking on the floyd rose(could be my fault though). They sound amazing on my led Paul too(my personal opinion).

        I've been a user of Ernie Ball's Regular Slinky for about 10 years and recently tried these for alternate tunings. They work great. Good chunky lows while keeping slinky tops for solos and bending. Good stuff!

          Best Uses

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2215 Nickel Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

            I tried using heavier sets on my hollow body (11's, 12's etc.) for jamming rockabilly and blues, and the fluid playability just wasn't there. And lighter strings (9's or 10's) just didn't have that fat bottom needed for the "true" hollow body tone, especially for rockabilly. I tried a set of these when I had my guitar professionally set up, and it was the perfect tone and playability I was looking for that particular guitar. They hold up to frequent playing and whammy dives as well. I've always used Ernie Ball strings for my guitars. I've tried others and always come back to E.B.'s; the best IMHO.

                Comments about Ernie Ball 2215 Nickel Skinny Top/Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

                I have used this string set up for a couple of years now. I use them on two of my guitars a Stratocaster and a Telecaster. My ear and stylistic interests enjoy the heavy tone of the 4,5,6 strings. I contrast the 1,2,3's can sound a little thin while playing. I may try to increase the diameter on the high end. I use these for "Old Fart Rock" Blues and contemporary Pop. I'm running Seymour Duncan pickups on both of these guitars so I have plenty of beef to run them over. Overall a good string for my tastes.
