Great Strings, Good Tension, Good Feel, Good Sound

By CajunBlues

from Undisclosed

Comments about Ernie Ball 2251 Pure Nickel Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings seem to be the least tense strings of all the "pure nickel" strings I have tried. Sound good and they are not to squeaky. Great price too.

An inexpensive upgrade

By MMc

from St. Louis MO

Comments about Ernie Ball 2251 Pure Nickel Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

Playing a 335 clone with Duncan 59s, I was unhappy the tone of the guitar. Decided to try the pure nickel strings and I now love the tone of the guitar. No other tweak between worry and love, so it had to be the strings. If your looking for a mellower laid back tone, try these before investing in a new amp or pickups. They might do the trick and its a whole lot cheaper!

The Pro Stuff

By T

from Santa Monica

Comments about Ernie Ball 2251 Pure Nickel Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

When you first put them on, the pure nickel wrap starts off a little duller than the nickel plated steel, but they don't ever really change their tone over time. The steels go downhill very quickly after the first day. From the second day till you take them off the guitar, the nickels sound much better than plated steel. Another advantage is that you set your amp and you can leave it, you don't have to keep changing it to make up for the dying strings.

Worth Paying Extra

By Bob-gX3yW

from Branford, CT USA

Comments about Ernie Ball 2251 Pure Nickel Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

I have been partial to Ernie Ball Classic Slinky strings for years -- going back to 1970 when I read in Guitar Player that Carlos Santana and other contemporary players favored them. I prefer these Pure Nickel Wrap 2251 over the EB 2221 set because I found they hold up much better to my heavy rhythm playing style. They hold their ringing tone pretty well. I rarely break these whereas I invariably break one string when 2221s are installed on the same guitar.
