The new sets are expected to debut in March, and flesh out the brand’s custom string gauge offerings further than ever before. If you were stoked to see the addition of the Primo, Mammoth and Mega Slinky sets from last year, this new drop will make you a very, very happy guitar player.
For a fit in between Regular and Hybrid Slinkys, there’s the new Turbo Slinkys (9.5, 12, 16, 26, 36, 46), which seem to be a tantalising option for funk and soul players. The Mondo Slinkys (10.5, 13.5, 17.5, 30, 42, 52), on the other hand, look set to appeal to those who aren’t keen on 11s but don’t want spaghetti strings when they drop tunings.
If you want it THICC, the Magnum Slinkys (12, 16, 22w, 32, 44, 56) might be your cup of tea – that wound 22 gague G string would make for great tension. There’s also the Skinny Top Beefy Bottom Slinkys for you riff-dogs,, which are available in both six and seven string sets (10, 13, 17, 32, 44, 54) and (10, 13, 17, 30, 42, 52, 62).
Like it slick? Dive into the Mighty Slinkys (8.5, 11, 15, 22w, 30, 40), which provides a super-fast and finger easing tension across the fretboard. Last but not least, Ernie Ball have also offered a lighter gauge variation on their Skinny Top Beefy Bottom set with the Hyper Slinkys (8, 11, 14, 24w, 32, 42), ensuring that there truly is something for everyone.
