Overview

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.

This string is the best... I love it! It really brings out the heavy sound. Good for people that like grunge or metal music. Down side... it's kinda hard to do solos because of the weight. (but it sounds nice)

These strings are like a stick of gum. Great at first, but quickly lose their flavor.I used to use Ernie Ball strings always, their price is nice and they do sound great when they're brand new. However I started to notice how quickly I'd have to replace them to keep sounding good, so I decided to try out D'Addario strings as a replacement. I don't like the feel of the webbed strings and the D'addarios were in the same price range as the Ernie Balls. I don't think I've ever broken a string while playing, so this is not a problem for me. The D'addario strings sound the same, but last longer. I find myself changing strings half as frequently since I switched.All in all the Ernie Ball strings are still good if you don't go through strings very often. However I recommend the D'addario if you seem to have problems keeping them sounding new.

    I'm a gambler when It comes to strings, switching through out the different brands and gauge sizes. When I play in Eb I need something that's not going to flop around on the neck, gauge sizes are perfect. good product

      Teena bought these for me - I wanted them after switching by accident and finding a better tune hold, feel & tone than my regular sliky choices. I can't say enough about ErnieBall products.

          These strings have good tone and hold tuning on my Strat, but are stiff and require too much pressure to chord. I have carpal tunnel syndrome and my grip is weak so I guess I'll have to go back to ultra lights.

          Great Strings for all styles

          By Josue Legaspi

          from Las Vegas, NV

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

          Since I have been playing guitar, i have been using slinkys. Ive used the regular slinkys, light slinkys, and the hybrid slinkys. But i wanted something heavier and the power slinkys were the answer. I can play them tuned at standard but still able to down tune 2 or 3 steps and still sound great.I play modern rock with some classic rock and blues and they get the job done. For me, average string life is about 2 or 3 months, but then, i do mess around alot with tuning modes and i also do alot of bending.

            Good solid Choice

            By Steve Soria

            from Miami, FL

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Electric Guitar Strings:

            I also got these because i had read that Slash and Kirk Hammett use these. They're good. They make a les paul sound big in standard tuning. Also, they handle E-flat standard better than the 10 gauge regular slinkys or 9 gauge super slinkys. My only thing against these strings is that the and fat/low E string loosens up a little too much for my taste once you start playing at Drop D-flat or lower. But in drop D they're okay. As far as quality goes, they're good and last a good amount of time. I've broken one or two strings in my time. But, I play hard lol. They're good choice.
