ERNIE BALL TURBO SLINKY 9.5-46 NICKEL WOUND ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS

2224 - Turbo Slinky - 9.5, 12, 16, 26, 36, 46 - Bronze Pack

Turbo Slinkys sit neatly between the popular Regular Slinky and Hybrid Slinky strings while providing a balanced, comfortable feel across all six strings. This combination is ideal for players who are looking for added playability with minimal differences in tone and tension.

Here's what Ernie Ball say about the Slinky strings;

Played by Jimmy Page, Jeff Back and Angus Young, Ernie Ball Super Slinky electric strings are precision manufactured by machine in Coachella, CA to the highest standards and most exacting specifications to ensure consistency, optimum performance, and long life.  Slinky sets are then sealed in an airtight, water-tight foil package which is quality tested every hour at the factory.  

Slinky wound strings are made with a smooth nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around a steel hex core.  They have a warm, full-bodied tone which brings out more of the mid-frequency range compared to other strings and delivers an easy-under-the-finger feel which won’t wear out frets.  The plain strings are made of specially tempered tin plated high carbon steel producing a well-balanced tone for your guitar.

The USA made Ernie Ball strings boast outstanding quality and value with a solid fan base and established reputation.

Prices are for single sets only.

Ernie Ball 2224 Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings 9.5-46 Turbo Slinky

Recently bought a 25.5" scale length guitar (all my others are 24.75") and so needed to find a new gauge to suit the guitar (which came with 9-42 that felt too light for me)/ my fingers/ my playing style. The more usual 'tween-set of 9.5-44 felt too 'loose' (and a bit weak, output-wise) on the bass end, while the 10-46 felt too 'stiff' on the treble end for comfortable bends. However, the 26/36/46 wounds had a more beefy sound. So, on paper, the Turbo seemed a good meld of both... and in practice, it's nailed it! I'd say these are a good choice for Strats and Tellies if you want a beefier sound, without worrying about ripping your fingers to shreds when bending the first three strings. My only criticism is that they're a bit more expensive than the 'usual' gauges... but that may just be because they're 'new' to the EB range and have yet to establish a large enough following to allow for supply-and-demand pricing.
