ernie ball makes slinkies! i put a set of hybrid slinky strings on my martin 2 days ago and i like them a lot. i went crazy on strings last month and i have tried martin bluegrass, martin SP+, and ernie ball super slinky (did NOT like at all). i have a set of ernie ball earthwood rock & blues and some d'addarios that i got fo free from work to try next. THEN i am going back to elixir. i put a new set on my martin sigma a few days ago after i lowered the saddle and they sound so good but i don't remember which ones they were as per usual.
