After fruitless attempts to interest major guitar manufacturers in a lighter set of strings, Ernie Ball decided to start making his own. When you open a pack of his strings today, you know you’re getting a quality set of strings designed to give you great tone, reliable performance, and long life. You can’t go wrong when you string up with Ernie Ball strings!
Ernie Ball’s Zippy Slinky electric guitar strings are made from nickel-plated steel wire wrapped around a tin-plated, hex-shaped steel core wire. If you're looking for a string that's easy on your fingers but big on tone, Zippys are about as thin as guitar strings can get! Guitarists have found that they offer unmatched playability, with a loose and comfortable feel that's perfect for those who play in styles that require wide-interval bends.
