Ernie Ball's Burly Slinky electric guitar strings provide a robust tone and higher tension for players craving fat sound. The nickel-plated steel wrap wire and tin-plated high-carbon steel core deliver full lows, cutting highs and balanced mids to complement all guitar types.

Custom String Gauges for Powerful Playing

The Burly Slinky set features custom string gauges, from a heavy bottom end to a lighter top end. The 11-48 gauge range provides thicker, beefier chords and low-end rumble while maintaining enough tension for expressive lead playing and soloing. The variation in gauges gives dynamic tone and feel across the guitar's range.

Iconic Ernie Ball Slinky Feel

Ernie Ball strings have been relied on by legendary rock artists for over 60 years. The Slinky feel is instantly familiar to players, providing comfort and confidence. The Burly Slinky set offers a heavier version of that iconic feel for shredding solos and dropped tunings without sacrificing playability.

Nickel-Plated Steel for Cutting Tone

Nickel-plated steel wrap wire delivers a bright, articulate tone that cuts through dense mixes. The tin-plated high-carbon steel core adds warmth and fullness, creating an overall balanced tone that complements various musical styles.
