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 2626 Not Even Slinky strings were developed for guitarists who tune their instruments to drop D or drop C and value a good amount of string tension and clean definition in the low end. 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 .012, .016, .024p, .032, .044, and .056, the 2626 Not Even Slinky strings offer a comfortable playing feel while still producing a rich and powerful tone that makes them ideal for 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 2626 Not Even Slinky string set is particularly recommended as a reliable companion for guitarists who play their instrument predominantly with drop tunings and place great value on precision and clean definition, especially in the low end. The combined power of over 50 years of experience in string development at Ernie Ball also makes the 2626 Not Even 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 2626 Not Even Slinky string set offers a rich, balanced sound that brings out the best in your electric guitar - even when it's down-tuned. 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, particularly important when using drop tunings. Whether you are playing powerful high-gain riffs, crystal-clear clean parts, or expressive solos, the Ernie Ball 2626 Not Even Slinky strings offer the perfect balance between playing feel, durability, and a full sound.

I used the Ernie Ball earthwood 0.12 string on my acoustic guitar and I thought to get the Not-Even-Slinky on my electric.
I played at the begining in standard E and it was such a mistake, the string were giving big tension on the neck so I got some fissures on it. I gave the guitar to a master to be repaired, and after that decided to go down. I played drop C, but the tension was also big, after that I went to drop A and this is the best tuning for these strings, they're feeling like some Regular Slinkys in the standard E, but the tone they give is so beefy and angry. The clean tones also pleased me, as they're still bright and can give some "glass" type of clean sound, with a good guitar and amp, of course.

Bought these for my son to use on his Hollow Body, a little to much for me, but my son loves 'em, and honestly they do have a beautiful full tone.

I needed strings for bringing my guitar to a Drop C tuning. My first try were the Earnie Ball "not even slinky" strings. I am playing Earnie Ball Strings on all my guitars so i was looking forward for a great tone. However I was not as satisfied as usual. The strings maybe are a bit too thick for a Drop C (I had to adjust the neck after putting the strings on!). Furthermore the strings were hardly fitting in the nut. After setting the neck i tried some dry playing. Sounded okay to me. Some playing through my amp was sounding better. There the sound has a lot of bass und was really punchy. Except one thing: The G String. All the other strings sound good, but the G String is really sounding poor. The string is only swinging for two or three seconds. Maybe it is because the string is a (thick) 24 plain string. If you play chords it is not really conspicious. But if you play single notes it is really annoying. Does not matter if played with amp or without, the G String is really crappy. Concerning the other strings i think this is not more than a three star rating.

Optimal for Eb tuning, I use ıt for fingerstyle jazz and enjoy plain G.
