Ernie Ball Hybrid Strings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by tezrez, Jul 28, 2001.


  1. Im a intermeddiate that has a ibanez gsr 200 4-string. Ive heard good things about ernie ball hybrid slink strings. any opinions on strings i could use for Rock?
     
  2. ernie ball strings are great. hybrid, super, regular, etc. are just names for the guages that the sets come in. so what i mean is, hybrid isn't any better than super. it just depends on your size preference.

    hybrids are 45-105 gauge.

    I use them but im gonna change because they are cheap strings ($16 for a set of four) and they go dead fast and break easily. However, they do have an excellent tone when they are new and look cool because the part of the string that goes over the headstock is all metal instead of that red felt.
