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.

One of the classics

The 2212 Primo Slinky strings are perfect for musicians who are looking for a high level of playing comfort with a minimum of changes in sound and tension. 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 .0095, .012, .016, .024, .034, and .044, the 2212 Primo Slinky offer top-notch playability for lead guitarists in particular, and these strings excel with clean intonation along the entire length of the fingerboard as well as lastingly stable and reliable tuning as soon as you put them on.

Traditionally reliable

Thanks to its long playing life, loud and well-balanced sound, precise intonation, and high tuning stability, the 2212 Primo 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 2212 Primo 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 2212 Primo 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 Ernie Ball 2212 Primo Slinky strings offer the perfect balance between playing feel, durability, and a full sound.

Really cool
Dolan 21.11.2019
Saw that Ernie Ball released some new strings, so decided to try them out.Slightly thicker than the 9's that were on my E standard Strats and Teles. I do notice a difference in playing, they're a bit 'tighter' than normal 9's, which makes sense. They provide the right tension without the discomfort that i get from 10's.

String thickness
Anonymous 01.06.2022
I love the 9,5's! They make bends a little easier than the 10's yet they're not as thin and don't break as easily as the 9's or 8's. I did however find the bottom strings a bit too thin...I'm a metal/prog player so I prefer the lower strings to be a bit thicker. That's why in the end I went for the turbo slinky's. Strings are always of excellent quality and so this is purely a personal choice!

Great set of sizes

I love how these are just slightly lighter than 10's. I go with these on fender scale guitars for to make them just slightly more comfortable to play than with slinky 10's.
