Ernie Ball: String Alloy - Nickel Wound Slinkys on the Cutlass SSS
Developed by the iconic string pioneers at Ernie Ball, these premium strings are precision-engineered to handle the lower tunings metal players crave while still delivering a balanced tone and slinky feel. The Not Even Slinky set features gauges of .012, .016, .024, .032, .044 and .056, providing the ideal string tension for drop D, drop C and other detuned tunings.
Optimal Tone and Tension for Lower Tunings
The Not Even Slinky set is made with nickel-plated steel wrap wire and tin-plated hex core wire for a tone that's neither too bright nor too dark when detuned. The heavier bottom end provides the tension needed for lower tunings so notes ring out clearly with minimized fret buzz. Players can drop tune with confidence knowing these strings were designed specifically for that purpose.
Familiar Slinky Feel
While the Not Even Slinky set handles lower tunings, it still provides the slinky and responsive feel Ernie Ball strings are known for. The tin-plated plain strings and hex core wire give these strings a familiar and fast feel for nimble fretting and bending. Players accustomed to standard or lighter gauge sets will feel right at home with the playability of these detuned-focused strings.
Precision and Durability
Like all Ernie Ball strings, the Not Even Slinky set is precision manufactured to strict tolerances for consistency and long life. The nickel-plated wrap wire and tin-plated components provide corrosion resistance and durability. Restringing is minimized so players can spend more time playing and less time changing strings.
The Choice of Legendary Players
Ernie Ball strings have been the choice of legendary rock and metal players since the 1960s. Icons like Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, Slash and Steve Vai rely on Ernie Ball strings for their tone and feel. The Not Even Slinky set delivers the premium quality and performance that has made Ernie Ball an industry leader for over 50 years.
