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.

Great feel over standard strings

By Cisco Sinz

from San Fernando, CA

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

These strings i chose because i wanted something stronger than the basic strings. The tone is much deeper, stronger. I can't wait to be better so i can put these to good use with songs like Dammit and Fat Lip. Yes, i'm a Blink 182 fan. That aside, they're very well packaged. I had no problem sliding them in. They are thicker, however, so it is a lil trickier gettin' them to settle in place when first inserting into the tuners. Note to new users, since they are thicker, you may have to raise the bridge or the individual saddles. I had to do this on my 6th and 5th string and slightly on the 4th or the strings would hum on the frets. Once i did that, they play great. Keep in mind, they are thicker strings so you really have to have strong fingers to put them to full use.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

I own 6 guitars ranging from a Strat to an Ovation and have found that these strings last for an extended period even when not used.Most of my guitars are set up for #10 but have decided to give a little heavier string a look. Never had a breakage problem with Slinkeys. First rate strings.

    I've always relied on Slinkys. Use these on non tremolo guitars. Extra or Super Slinkys with the tremolo.

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

      I needed some new strings for a B.C. Rich Metal Master Warlock that hadn't had new strings since it was purchased (I know shame on me). The GC associate recommended these (I play metal rhythm standard tuning) and so far I could not be happier. They are a little stronger than what came stock on the Warlock but the tone is definitely there and so far they seem to stay in tune quite well for my playing style.

        Continuing renovation of my Fender Musicmaker II guitar

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

        The strings on my Fender Music maker II needed to be replaced for renovation efforts. The Ernie Ball Power Slinky string set was installed on the guitar and I noted a remarkable increase in output response over the ancient ones originally on the instrument since purchased in 1970's. These strings seem to be higher output and have a clarity I haven't heard previously. I am extremely satisfied with this purchase and is great to have two spare string sets. I strongly recommend them.

            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!

            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!!!!

            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.
