Ernie Ball 2253 Super Slinky Classic Rock N Roll Electric Guitar Strings (Super Light Gauge)

Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommendation

The Ernie Ball 2253 appeared on our recommended list for Super Light Gauge Electric Guitar String Sets from September 2021 until June 2022.

Overview

As the name suggests, this guitar string set is designed to reproduce the balanced sound of guitars as heard in classic rock tracks.

To achieve this, Ernie Ball decided to equip the 2253 Super Slinky with pure nickel winding, which results in slightly increased string tension and fuller tone with mid frequency emphasis.

And it does all this while retaining its affordable price tag and thin super light gauge.

The Ernie Ball 2253 combines the playability of modern light gauge with vintage style tone, highly recommended if you're into Rock and similar styles.
