Ernie Ball has unveiled three new Slinky gauges—the Primo Slinky, Mega Slinky and Mammoth Slinky Nickel Wound sets.

Following the company's announcement of its Ultra and Burly Slinky string sets back in March, the nickel-wound strings are made from nickel plated steel wire wrapped around tin plated hex shaped steel core wire. The plain strings are made of specially tempered tin plated high carbon steel.

The Primo Slinky and Mega Slinky sets feature half-gauge strings, while the Mammoth strings are the heaviest Slinkys to date. 

The Primo set range runs from .0095 -.044, the Mega runs from .0105 to .048 and the Mammoth—designed for drop tunings—runs from .012 to .062.

Ernie Ball's new Primo, Mega and Mammoth Slinky sets are available now for $5.99 each.
