Ive been playing guitar for 15 years and have about 6 guitars at any time. These are great strings that I use when I want a nice clean tone. I put these strings on my Gibson Les Paul and my Jackson Soloist. On the Gibson I get a nice brite sound with a lot of bluesy twang and on the Jackson I get a nice bottom crunch without to much bass and on top a clean brite sound that is perfect for solos. I bend a lot on both of these guitars and these are the only strings that dont break. If youre looking for an excesively metal sound look at someting else (like D'Addario), but if you want an easy playing string that screams for solos with just the right amount of crunch, these are the strings to get.

The famous "Ernie Ball" strings, I just had to try them. Turned out that I was a tad disapointed. These strings are great for some country, or blues. It also sounds just great on Clean. But thats about it. If you play Metal, or Rock then I would prefer some D'Addario strings. This came with 6 packs, so it looks like im gonna have to find someone willing to buy the rest from me.

Best Strings

By James Chaloupka

from Berwyn,IL

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

Been using these strings for over 40 years--They have the best bendability and offer good sound ever past their usable life span. Only disappointment is that they use to have a string set with 4 unwound strings(d was unwound) but I haven't been able to find them. Guess I'll have to buy and extra g and tune it down. I have tried gibsons, fenders, ddarios, and a few others but I always come back to the Balls and quickly because the others lose tone or stretch real quick. Great strings!

Ernie Ball Slinky guitar strings

By Mark Pollock

from Maplewood, MO

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

I have used Ernie Ball strings on all my guitars. I formerly used Super Slinky 9s. When they broke too frequently, I switched about 8 years ago to Lime Slinky 10s, but I also use an 11 for the first string. Much better. Great performance. Bend easily. Bright and shimmery compared to others I have tried. I received other brands, including Boomers for gifts. When I have tried them, I always go back Ernie Ball.

Great set of strings

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

So far, these are definitely my favorite strings. They're easy on my fingers and hold up very well. I'll have trouble trying another brand.

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

Theses strings are awesome. I have been using them for 2 years now. They are great. They last pretty long.. unless you're down tuning a lot sooner or later that high e and b will break. But other then that they have a great sound and feel too them i'd say too people who have not used or tried theses strings do so now!!! you will not regret it!!

By Matt

from Toms River, NJ

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

They rock thats all I can say. Before I use these slinky's i was using elixers which just werent cutting it. I put these slinky's on my Ibanez SZR 720 and it gave me a bright new tone that a wanted. I really want to get a Gibson so I can truely rock out on the slinky's.

Ball 2221 slinky strings

By J Woody Haugh

from Centereach, New York

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

Great price, B's and E's can take a beating without breaking. I've used Ball .008's and they can be bent around the neck without losing tune.

Great Strings

By SGJax

from OH

Comments about Ernie Ball 2221 Nickel Regular Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 6 Pack:

These are the only strings I use. I mainly use them because they aren't too bad on the fingers and they can take a lot of wear and tear without snapping. Another reason I like them is because the backs are pretty cool, and have a list of bands who use the strings. However, they get dirty really easily, so beware, expecially if you like to eat greasy food (not the greatest idea) like popcorn and potato chips while you play, and you don't clean your strings regularly. Other than that, these are among the finest strings out there.
