Overview

Gauges 11-14-18p-28-38-48.

Ernie Ball RPS electric guitar strings are reinforced versions of the standard Slinky. A patented winding of bronze wire is tightly wrapped around the lock twist of the ball end. String slippage and breakage are minimized at the ball end where these most often occur. RPS strings last longer and stay in tune better than conventional plain strings. Used on electric and acoustic guitars but, not classical guitars.

All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance, and long life.

Ernie Ball is the 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 2242 Power Slinky RPS 11 Electric Guitar Strings:

I have tried Fender,Gibson,Ghs,Elixir,Dean Markley's Blue Steel. I used the blue steel for about the last 5 years because they had really good sound and lasted a long time. But I read the reviews on these strings and thought I would give them a try. These strings are great. The first time I played Sweet Child O' Mine, my jaw dropped to the floor by how good these strings sounded. Just amazing what a good set of strings can do. Distorted or clean they have great sound and all I am using them on is an Epiphone. I'm pretty sure if you try these you will like them. Sorry Dean Markley but I am switching to Ernie Ball Power Slinkys form now on.

Ernie Ball RPS

By 

from Goleta, CA

Comments about Ernie Ball 2242 Power Slinky RPS 11 Electric Guitar Strings:

These are amazing strings. They have that fat, thick tone but are still easy to bend. I use these on my Epiphone Casino and occasionally my Strats. i think that these are better than the normal Power Slinkies. And they last forever. GET THESE!!!

Amazing when brand new... but...

By

Comments about Ernie Ball 2242 Power Slinky RPS 11 Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings don't last long at all compared to pretty much everything else I've used. They are the best sounding string, brand new, and hold their tune very well. The problem is... they wear unevenly, and very quickly and throw your intonation in the garbage. I will definitely be going to a different string after my last 3 packs are gone.

A-MAZ-ING

By 

from Orem, UT

Comments about Ernie Ball 2242 Power Slinky RPS 11 Electric Guitar Strings:

That's all I could say when I replaced these with the stock strings. I didn't think strings could make much difference, but it was like a punch in the face when I played the first note! I use an Epiphone Studio and the tone is amazing when I put these on. They must also be pretty sturdy because I had trouble cutting the excess off even while using heavy-duty wire cutters. These are really easy playing strings, too (good for bending, etc.). I play all types of music, and it doesn't even matter what type of music you play, these strings are for you!

LONG Lasting!

By 

from California

Comments about Ernie Ball 2242 Power Slinky RPS 11 Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings are really great. They sound and feel great. I used the regular Ernie Ball 11 guaged strings before, those were alright, they always died out in a matter of hours because I sweat a lot, and by a lot I really mean it. But these strings haven't even started getting dirty yet, and its been weeks since Ive put them on! They're great for any type of music. I also got these because slash had them, haha. They're worth it!
