Product Description

Product Description

Ernie Ball Power Slinky Electric Strings are a perfect match for those who like chunky rhythms for rock and roll or blues. Power Slinkys have long been favored by Slash, Metallica, & Kenny Wayne Shepherd due to the thicker gauge combination providing a slightly more powerful tone. These strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and most exacting specifications to ensure consistency, optimum performance, and long life. Power Slinky wound strings are made from nickel plated steel wire wrapped around a hex shaped steel core wire. The plain strings are made of specially tempered tin plated high carbon steel; producing a well balanced tone for your guitar. Gauges .011 .014 .018p .028 .038 .048

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product!- Must have for any guitarist! 10 Feb 2009
The "Ernie Ball Power slinky 2220 electric guitar strings" are great for any guitarist. I tend to find that the power slinky strings excel in playing distorted rock or heavy metal (basically they are great for playing power chords).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great strings 14 Sep 2009
These are my preference of strings that i tend to always go for, the are eleven guage meaning they are of medium weight,
so can be used for any style of playing, but i find them good for getting a nice thick tone when playing some heavy music,
been using them for 8 months of playing everyday basically ( i know i should change them) but they still sound good
and haven't broken so would definately recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ernie Ball Power Slinky 11-48 Custom Gauge 10 Nov 2011
I fitted these strings on a Vintage VS6 and they sound awesome. The tone is thick and rich on the low strings but still bright on the high end and really brings out the best in the guitar. They are perfect for rock i.e Guns n Roses, AC/DC, Led Zep, Sabbath etc, which is what I like to play. They are probably a bit too heavy for a beginner but perfect for intermediate or advanced players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power Sliky Review 18 April 2011
Excellent feel to these strings. Not too thin and not too thick, but something substantial to get hold of. I love them even in different guitar types.

4.0 out of 5 stars Still the best strings around. 7 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase
I have used Ernie Ball strings almost exclusively for over 30yrs now. This is a slightly heavier gauge than I usually use,and they're excellent for playing heavy rock, metal or even the odd bit of punk. They stay in tune well, and last for ages. I deducted one star because the A string snapped when i was fitting it. I can only assume that for the first time ever, I got a duff string. Certainly something i've never experienced before from Ernie Ball. I will certainly carry on using Ernie Ball strings, as no other string , in my opinion, comes close.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ernie Ball strings 10 July 2014
The Ernie Ball Power Slinky strings are great! I came from .009 strings, so it took a little getting used to making bends with these strings, but the sound definitely got better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't beat them for the price 6 July 2014
Ernie Ball are my go to strings, can't beat them for the price. Used on my Les Paul Custom. These strings are more of a rock - metal sound to them, although strings dont really change the sound of how you play... so even if you play country these strings are great
