Most of the problems guitarist have with strings breaking is where the string meets the saddle. In order to correct this problem Ernie Ball designed the new RPS string set. RPS stands for Reinforced Plain Steels and that’s just what they are. Ernie Ball’s patented winding made of bronze is tightly wrapped around the place where the string coils on the ball end.
On the low end the RPSs have regular Slinkys, the most popular set available in the market. They are made with Nickel plated steel over a hex core wire.
- RPS plain steels
- Nickel plated wound lows
- They correct the problem with breakage and slippage
All Ernie Ball strings have hermetically sealed foil packaging that defends your strings from humidity, ensuring fresh tone as if they had been made just for you, right here in the USA. All insert labels are made from 100% recycled materials.
