Ernie Ball Slinky Buying Guide

Super Slinky  9-42 Gauge

The shredders choice, these light gauge strings are easy to play, bend, and abuse while still being sturdy enough to handle drop D and other turnings.

Regular Slinky  10-46 Gauge

Used by Steve Vai, John Petrucci, and Eric Clapton, the heavier string gauge will provide a slightly meatier tone and less fret buzz, allowing for lower action. Not for weenies, the thicker strings do require more finger strength when bending as compared to Super Slinkys.

Skinny Top / Heavy Bottom  10-52 Gauge

The best of both worlds! Thick low end strings are great for articulate, heavy chording and lend themselves well to drop turnings. The lighter high end strings provide effortless play-ability when soloing. 

Power Slinky  11-48 Gauge

A thicker set of strings that will provide a powerful, rich tone. Great for chunky high-gain rhythms and smooth solo work. Excellent for lower tunings

Extra Slinky 8-38 Gauge

For those with a light touch, extra slinkys are the skinniest set of Slinkys avaialble. These easy-bending strings are perfect for those who want a string that is effortless to play and control. Also good for above standard tunings or beginners who are still working on there finger strength.

 Hybrid Slinky - 9-46 Gauge

A combination of Ernie Balls two best selling string sets (Regular and Super Slinkys), great for those who like the tighter string feel on the low end but don't want to sacrifice play-ability on the high strings.

Beefy Slinky 11-54 Gauge

These strings are BRUTAL! Not for the faint of heart, the Beefy slinky was created with the drop tuning, metal head in mind. 

Not Even Slinky 12-56 Gauge

These strings are BRUTAL! Not for the faint of heart, the Not Even Slinky set was created with the drop tuning, metal head in mind. The thickest Slinky set, these are the ultimate drop tuning, chunky rhythm, head banging strings available.
