Overview

Three-pack of 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings.
Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-48.
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.

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    I bought this last night for my ibanez electric, as i had bought really thin new strings from a different brand that broke during tuneing. I put the strings on, tuned up, and was ready to go, played for an hour expected to have tune as new strings stretch out when first put on - they played for a full hpur eith out haveing to retune! Amazing! These will now be my new go to for electric strings. Great rich death metal sound!

    Good Deal, about the same as you pay in store though

    By NICK STEEN

    from Durham, NC

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    I mistakenly thought that these would be a much better deal than buying them one at a time in-store, as it turns out with tax it was about the same. That being said the price they have on these usually beats amazon (sometimes you'll find oddities - I once found power slinkys for $1.99 a pack, then a week later they had gone up to $6). Plus it's a good excuse to go into the store and play guitars I can't afford. I don't know how I feel about the light bottom, but it does keep string tension relatively low (overall) for a set of .11 gauge strings. They've got a great feel, very easy to bend etc. Sound great too.

    Great Option For Experienced Players!

    By Richard Auvil

    from Blairsville, PA

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    These strings are exactly what I needed! They feel great under my experienced fingers without bending out of tune every time I press. The sustain is great and the tone is quite chunky - just great for all of the styles I play. They sound right at home on my LP Custom AND on my Epiphone Joe Pass. Even, balanced, and full sounding strings for rhythm, lead, and chord melody playing.

    Amazing

    By Thomas Crawford

    from Brookings, Sd

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    I use this on almost all of my guitars. It has a great beefy tone and will sound decent in basically all tunings above 2 steps below standard on my 24.75" neck. If you're going to drop tune a lot, try 12s or a longer neck or something.

    Perfect gauge for me

    By Daniel Gamble

    from Loveland, CO

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    I've been using D'Addario EXL115s (.011-.049) on my Gretsch 5120 for several years, and still like them, but I tried I set of these .011-.048 Power Slinkys on that guitar, and really love 'em! Nice balance, good projection, durable. I ordered this three pack and will also load them on my Epi Jorma Kaukonen signature Riviera that I use in my classic rock band. These are quality economical USA-made strings.

    Excellent

    By BananaThug

    from Blue Ridge, TX

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    These strings are great for pretty much anything that you want to play, they stayed fresh and new sounding for a surprisingly long time. but after they wore out, i couldn't get through one song without them going a half, or full, step out of tune. Other than that, AMAZING quality.

    Okay strings

    By Michael Pelletier

    from oswego, IL

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    This strings i picked up over the weekend for 3 bucks a pack!!! what a deal!! so i bought like 20 thinking they be alright. I went home slaped them on my SG and i loved them. They truely are good strings and i see why all my friends use them. The only down side to them is there 11 to 48 so your better off playing in drop D or standard E. Although they are good strings i prefer my DR Pure Blues 11 to 50.

    GREAT STRINGS

    By Jeff Swanson

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    I don't use too many different tunings, but everything that I've used from Standard to Drop C has worked perfectly. They are easy to bend, but stay in place and in tune. I just can't say enough good things about them. At the very least buy a single pack and just try them out.

    I will never use non-slinky's!!!!

    By Nick McMullen

    from Albion, NY

    Comments about Ernie Ball 2220 Power Slinky Nickel Round Wound Electric Guitar Strings 3 Pack:

    These are great! They have a much better feel then standard strings. To achieve best results however (especially with a floating tremolo), wrap the E, A and D around a couple of times before inserting through tuner. With G, B and E, I usually do it 3 or 4 times. Also when tuning, line up holes with the position on bridge (straight string pull = better tuning). They are a little heavy, but when you break them in they feel great If they are too heavy, try Super Slinky's (same feel, lighter gauge). I love these!!!!
