Ernie Ball Slinky Strings
The Original Since 1962.
Ernie Ball Slinky electric guitar strings have been the favorite of legendary artists like Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Page, Slash, Green Day and more. Slinky gauge combinations were pioneered by our founder Ernie Ball over 50 years ago, helping shape the sound of rock n roll. Nickel Wound Slinky strings consist of nickel plated steel wrapped around a tin plated high carbon steel core for a balanced tone that compliments all guitar types and playing styles.
All plain strings feature a series of lock twists to secure the wire around the ball end preventing slippage and ensuring a long lasting string within minimal break in time.
Nickel Wound Slinky strings are precision wound with nickel plated steel wire providing a classic, balanced tone with superior intonation and consistency.
The core is made from tin plated high carbon steel hex wire providing excellent durability.

I like Ernie Ball strings as they are not as 'tinny' (bright?) sounding as D'addario (which I have also tried), I like their slightly less treble'y tone, each to his own with stings and plenty of people will disagree with me, but finding your own guitar tone is a personal thing, so play what you like the sound of, not what some review says you should like!! For a fiver these are reasonably priced and so if you don't like them then you haven't wasted a fortune.
I got some Beefy Slinky strings at the same time, but I find them much harder work (especially on the fixed bridge guitar I put them on) still playable and a nice tone, but you know after a few minutes practice that that you are using heavier strings. These strings on the other hand I can comfortably play for an hour or so without aching fingers!!
I noticed a comment about string snapping, I have always used Ernie Ball (for around 27 years) and apart from when I was first starting out I have rarely snapped a string through playing, I found it was due to that old chestnut of not recognising tone and turning the tuning pegs the wrong way, or turning the wrong tuning peg and even then it was only usually the high 'E' so I used to pick up a spare, at my local music shop (who sold them individually from a wooden tray in the days before the internet). That said I don't have a heavy picking arm, I find the volume knob on the amp is better for 'going loud' than beating seven bells out of the strings, so I can't vouch for these strings for those who pick really heavy, perhaps try the new RPS line if you are having real problems, or change your picking technique!!
I have also used many other brands, but for whatever reason, EBs are still my go to, string of choice. I use the, on my Strat, my Tele and my Les Paul, all with good results.
I am also pleased that they do not break on me.
Always use fresh strings when you set up the guitar and change them regularly. Old strings will always sound dead and muddy, whichever make you choose.
