Welcome to the Ernie Ball String Alloy Series. Where we're breaking down everything you need to know about our world-class strings, their different alloys, and what makes them sound unique.
In this video, we're featuring our M-Steel Regular Slinky (10-46) gauge electric guitar strings on the Ernie Ball Music Man Cutlass HSS guitar. Our M-Steel (Maraging Steel) strings are made up of a superalloy used in high-stress applications for the aerospace and defense industries. These wound strings are comprised of a patented Super Cobalt alloy wrapped around a Maraging steel hex core wire, producing a richer and fuller tone with a powerful low-end response. A patented winding of steel around the ball end of the plain strings reduces slippage, and breakage and stays in tune better than conventional strings.
