Ernie Ball Slinky RPS Electric Guitar Strings have been a top choice for players of all types since the early 1960s when guitarists would come into Ernie Ball’s music store and customize their string gauges to make their axes easier to play. After fruitless attempts to interest major guitar manufacturers in a lighter set of strings.
Ernie Ball decided to start making his own. When you open a pack of Ernie Ball strings today, you know you’re getting a quality set of strings designed to give you great tone, reliable performance, and long life.
Ernie Ball Slinky RPS Electric Guitar Strings are made from nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around a tin-plated hex-shaped steel core wire. To strengthen the plain strings, Ernie Ball winds bronze wire at the ball end.
This patented method reduces breakage but doesn’t change the feel of the strings. Artists from Keith Richards to John Petrucci rely on RPS Slinky strings to hold up to their most brutal picking.
