Ernie Ball: String Alloy - Nickel Wound Slinkys on the Cutlass SSS
The Ernie Ball Ultra Slinky nickel wound electric guitar strings (10-48) have garnered an esteemed reputation with guitarists all around the world for a reason. An industry standard for guitar strings no matter what you’re playing on—Ernie Ball Slinkys always manage to bring out the integrity of your guitar’s tone. With long-lasting durability and excellent bendability, these strings help to balance out your guitar's natural acoustics for an even and rich tone.
Ernie Ball strings have been used by professional musicians around the world since the 1960s. These Ultra Slinky strings are finely crafted with a custom gauge set: .010, .013, .017, .028, .038, .048, that still gives the flexibility of the Regular Slinkys but deliver a more resonant low end similar to the Power Slinkys. Manufactured with nickel-plating, these are high carbon, specially tempered steel wires, wrapped around a hexagon-shaped core, to create that perfect tonal balance for your guitar. Made with playability and comfort in mind, these were designed to allow all guitarists to find their favorite tone easily, no matter how long or short they’ve been playing for.
There is a reason rock icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Pete Townsend (to name a few), have preferred to use Ernie Ball strings. These Ultras hold up remarkably well to heavy playing, giving a reliability that can't be beat. Whether you’re firing off a solo fingerstyle or flatpicking, Slinkys give you the best versatility. Specially crafted for a precise, customized sound and feel, the warm, balanced tone they provide is rich enough to make any player an Ernie Ball loyalist.
