Ernie Ball Regular Slinky Strings are some of the highest quality strings around, designed to produce a well balanced tone, stay in tune longer, and outlast the other types. They remain one of top selling types of strings around today, preferred by many world famous musicians from many different genres of music, around the globe.  These strings are made in and shipped from the United States of America.  They will arrive in their new Element Shield packaging which resists humidity and keeps your strings as fresh as the day they were made.  I personally use these guitar strings and can stand by their reputation. 


Strings may be "plain" (consisting only of a single material, like Steel, Nylon, or Gut). "Wound" strings, on the other hand, have a "core" of one material, with an over-winding of other materials. This is to make the string vibrate at the desired pitch, while maintaining a low profile and sufficient flexibility for purposes of playability.   In this case the Ernie Ball Regular Slinky Strings have Nickel-plated Steel wire which is wound 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.

History of Ernie Ball

Ernie Ball began to develop his “slinky” strings during the greatest rock and roll era of all time.  He began to notice beginning guitar students were having difficulty playing the medium gauge strings, particularly in holding down or bending the stiff 29-gauge third ("G") string. At the time, it was common for a set of strings to have a "wound" third string.  He approached Fender with a solution to the problem, suggesting a lighter gauge but, was rebuffed.  After more of his ideas on how to improve strings were shot down by Gibson, Ernie Ball convinced a string manufacturer to make him custom sets with a 24-gauge third string which he sold in his store.   It was the beginning of the Ernie Ball brand.  Ernie Ball did not create anything new, he simply saw a demand and improved upon existing products and found ways to better fulfill market demands.  By the early 1970s he took the company global establishing distributors in Europe and Asia.  Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page,Metallica, Slash, U2, Aerosmith, The Eagles, Guns and Roses, and Pete Townshend and many other rock icons were stringing up Slinkys, a trend that continues into the present, making Ernie Ball the second largest string manufacturer in the country today.
