This is the best-selling string set for electric guitar, and for good reason! The Ernie Ball 2221 Regular Slinky is a set of six strings that produces an extremely balanced sound with more than enough output. The genre doesn't really matter; this set shines in any genre. Dozens of world-famous guitarists eagerly use Slinkys, and you've probably heard countless hit songs played on Slinkys without even realizing it. The wound strings are made of nickel-plated steel wrapped around a hexagonal steel core. The plain strings are made of specially tempered tinned carbon steel.

2221 Regular Slinky: a great idea

Mr. Ball noticed in the 1960s that many (beginning) guitarists struggled with the best-selling strings of the time. In particular, the G string, which was usually wound at that time, was very difficult to press down. Ernie thought that a thinner string set would be easier to play. He presented this idea to a major guitar company, but they didn't see the potential. Fortunately, Ernie Ball managed to convince another string manufacturer, who then sold Ernie's strings in his own shop. It quickly became a huge success, and even The Beach Boys and The Ventures became customers.

Still fantastic

Decades later, Ernie Ball Slinkys are legendary in the guitar world, and without Ernie Ball, guitar music might sound completely different today. The strings are made with the finest and purest materials, then packed as quickly as possible in a hermetically sealed package. This ensures that the strings are as fresh at your home as they were straight from the factory. Not sure which strings you need? Then you can't go wrong with the Ernie Ball 2221 Regular Slinky. If you haven't tried the 2221 yet, you'll definitely want to!
