The Ernie Ball 2239 Super Slinky is a set of electric guitar strings that are made from nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around a tin-plated hex-shaped steel core wire.
The nickel plating gives the strings a bright, clear sound, while the hex-shaped core wire provides strength and durability.
The Super Slinky gauge is 9-42, which means that the strings are on the thinner side, making them ideal for players who want a softer, more mellow sound.
The Ernie Ball 2239 Super Slinky Guitar Strings feature a patented winding of brass wire that is tightly wrapped around the lock twist of the ball end string to minimize slippage and breakage at the ball end. RPS strings last longer and stay in tune better than conventional plain strings.
The plain strings use a patented winding of bronze wire tightly wrapped around the lock twist of the ball end for reduced slippage and breakage, making them slightly bright. They’re popular with artists ranging from Keith Richards to John Petrucci.
