From the inventor of guitar strings

Strings made by Ernie Ball - the proverbial icing on the cake for a powerful sound with plenty of sustain. Since the early 1960s, the US company has been making strings for almost every stringed instrument. This vast wealth of experience is clearly demonstrated in every product, and it is not by chance that Ernie Ball remains one of the market's leading manufacturers to this day. The product range has expanded immensely over the course of several decades and now includes many accessories such as effect pedals, cables, straps, and high-quality picks alongside the company's extensive selection of strings. However, Ernie Ball's core business is and remains the production of all manner of strings, which set standards in terms of sound, tuning stability, and durability - and the company is still based in Indio, California.

Comfortable to play

The 2227 Ultra Slinky strings are one of Ernie Ball's classic products and are already among the company's top sellers. The wound strings feature a hexagonal steel core beneath nickel-plated steel windings. The plain strings, on the other hand, are made from a specially hardened and tin-plated high-tensile carbon steel. With gauges of .010, .013, .017, .028, .038, and .048., the 2227 Ultra Slinky strings offer a comfortable playing feel while still producing a rich and warm tone that makes them ideal for both Jazz and Metal.

Traditionally reliable

Thanks to its long playing life, loud and well-balanced sound, precise intonation, and high tuning stability from the moment the strings are put on, the 2227 Ultra Slinky string set is particularly recommended as a reliable companion for ambitious guitarists who want great playability, for example when playing solos, but still don't want to go without a powerful sound for chunky riffs and precise chord work. The combined power of over 50 years of experience in string development at Ernie Ball also makes the 2227 Ultra Slinky strings the first choice for electric guitars - and at a very fair price.

About Ernie Ball

The Ernie Ball company was named after its founder and has its headquarters in San Luis Opisbo, California. Being a guitarist himself, Ernie Ball knew their needs very well. A major problem for him in the 1950s and 1960s was the lack of high-quality guitar and bass strings. In 1962, Ernie Ball invented the “Slinky”, a very flexible and therefore much more comfortable string, which also sounded better and was more durable. He specifically brought individual string gauges onto the market for a young clientele and touring musicians. The company’s success was unstoppable, and today Ernie Ball is the world's largest manufacturer of guitar and bass strings. Over the years, the range has expanded and now includes accessories such as cables, picks, straps, etc. Ernie Ball is also known in connection with the instrument manufacturer Music Man, which the company bought in 1984, but which continues to operate as an independent brand.

From Funk to Metal

The Ernie Ball 2227 Ultra Slinky string set offers a rich, balanced sound that brings out the best in your electric guitar. The strings' precise intonation means that chords, riffs, and solos will always sound bright and clear anywhere on the fingerboard. In addition, these strings deliver excellent tuning stability as well as a direct tonal response, all of which will be helpful in getting your timing as precise as possible. Whether you are playing powerful high-gain riffs, crystal-clear clean parts, or expressive solos, the 2227 Ultra Slinky strings offer the perfect balance between playing feel, durability, and a full sound.

Best of both worlds for Jazzmaster players
Vyvy 08.02.2021
Bought these to compare to Power Slinky's on my Jazzmaster.

With the vintage style floating tremolo system I was on the look out for strings that could provide the tension and tuning stability of .11's but with more flexibility on the higher strings for easier bends and lead playing.

Happy to report that these do the job perfectly.

Nothing wrong with these strings
Erca 24.03.2022
To me, they're a good choice if you play in standard tuning and are used to 10s but want a bit more tension on the lower strings. Which helps if you occasionaly have to trop the low string down to D

Slight change from the regular Slinky
Bruno38. 30.12.2019
Nice to change a bit from the regular slinky and get a bit more tight bass.
I think I will stick to it
