AXOLOGY: Ernie Ball Introduces Titanium-Coated Slinky acoustic strings

Ernie Ball says its new Titanium-Coated Slinky acoustic guitar strings resist rust and grime to help retain bright and powerful tone. Both the wound and plain strings are coated with the company’s patented Titanium RPS technology.

In addition, a protective coating on the wrap wire and plain strings, plus a patented winding of titanium wire around the lock twist of the ball end, produces stronger and longer-lasting strings.

Titanium-Coated Slinky acoustic strings are sold in Ernie Ball’s new hermetically sealed packages to minimize exposure to moisture. Find out more at the company’s website.
