Ernie Ball Slinky Classic Rock N Roll Pure Nickel wrap electric guitar strings are made from pure nickel wire wrapped around tin plated hex shaped steel core wire, these guitar strings produce a warm rich tone with that signature Slinky feel.
These strings are special because the wrap on the lower three strings is pure nickel — not just plated with nickel — and that gives you a warm, thumpy sound with a glistening top end.
When you cut open a pack of the Classic Ernie Ball Rock N Roll Super Slinky strings, the strings sort of flurp out of the envelopes into your hand — they are slinky and bouncy and rubbery all at the same time. Ernie Ball does the best preservation and string packaging on the market. No rust on any strings. Ever.
The sound of the Rock N Roll Pure Nickel strings strung up is incredibly pleasing. You feel as if you're being propelled back in time to the great guitar music of the 1970's.
The Ernie Ball Super Slinkys also stay in tune forever. Tune 'em up and you don't really need to check your tuning for a few days — even after three days of heavy playing.
The Ernie Ball Company was the first to offer rock strings with the creation of Slinkys, and further revolutionized the market by offering guitarists Custom-Gauge single strings. Slinkys are the string of choice for many professional artists such as Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Angus Young, Slash, John Mayer, John Petrucci, Steve Lukather, and Steve Morse.
