ERNIE BALL MIGHTY SLINKY 8.5-40 NICKEL WOUND ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS

2228 - Mighty Slinky - 8.5, 11, 15, 22, 30, 40 - Light Blue Pack

Mighty Slinkys sit between the popular Super Slinky and Extra Slinky strings while providing a fast, light tension across all six strings.

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.
