Single notes ring out with bell-like clarity, and chords sound full and balanced.
Nickel-Plated Steel Wrap for Signature Slinky Tone
The Mighty Slinky 2228 electric guitar strings feature nickel-plated steel wrap wire, which provides the bright, crisp tone that Ernie Ball strings are known for. The nickel plating is carefully applied to ensure an even coat on the steel wire, which helps produce clear, balanced overtones and sustain. Combined with the tin-plated hex-shaped steel cores, the nickel-plated steel wrap gives the Mighty Slinky 2228 set a versatile, musical voice that works well for a variety of genres and playing styles.
String Gages Optimized for Comfort and Playability
With gauges of .0085 to .040, the Mighty Slinky 2228 set is ideal for comfortable, low-tension playing. The lighter string gauges make it easy to bend notes and play fast, articulate runs and riffs.
