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.

Garbage

Obviously anyone rating these high doesnt solo. A single bend on any high string throws them out of tune.

Great strings!

By Guitarslinger

from Weeki Wachee, FL

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

I currently use these strings on my Yamaha Pacifica. They are incredible for downtuning, and even with a trem arm they stay in tune fairly well. I like the fact that the uppers are still thin enough to bend, and the thicker bottoms have great tone. I have also used Super Slinkys, Regular Slinkys, Not Even Slinkys, and D'Addario XLs. These are the best by far.

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

these are the best strings i've used by far, i play system of a down music, and there guitarist uses these strings to make a deep heavy riff, to a high pitched shredding sound, these are the strings, i use a line 6 amp, and a Digitech RP-350 effects pedal, and i own an ibanez iceman, and with a pair of these strings, i guarantee you that this is what your looking for if your into metal or hard rock

I started using these ...

By faceless92

from Mia, FL

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

I started using these strings not too long ago, but they are definately my favorite. I used to play alot of metal and these were great for it, but now that i'm playing in a punk band i can't say I like them. I recommend for anyone who plays metal, but not for punk or some alternative.

Best Strings I've Used

By KaneIsRaw13

from Philadelphia, PA

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

These Are definatly the best strings that I've ever used, I've used Alot of Ernie ball strings but these ones are awesome. The Top stringas are great for Power chords and heavy metal, and the bottom strings are great for soloing and shreding, If you play Heavy Metal, or even Alternative, Buy These.

What?!

By Mike

from Palmdale, CA

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

To all of those that say that these strings fall out of tune easily, what are you talking about? I put a newset on both my guitars about once a month and the only time I have to tune them is the start of my session, and mybe about halfway through if I play for over 3 hours, which I normally do. This is a great set, the heavy bottoms absolutely growl and the light top end screams in the solo department.

If metal is for you, these strings are too!!

By Frankie

from Islip, New York

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

These strings are perfect! I play in a band and have these on all three of my guitars. They give you a great low end sound! Especially in dropped D and low tunings. Also, Synyster Gates of Avenged Sevenfold uses these. So listen to him play, you can really shred with these!

Great for Heavy Music

By KillWill

from Palm Coast, Fl

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

These babies are great for metal and other heavier styles of music. Slap these monsters on your axe and you?ll be rockin? in no time. The make pinch harmonics crystal clear. The thick lows allow for those heavy chords waaaaaaaayyy down on the neck. If you play in drop D or metal/hardcore music you?ll love these. I use them for all of my rhythm stuff. Enjoy!
