Jimmy Page’s Ernie Ball Super Slinky Guitar Strings

According to an interview with Steven Rosen from 1977, at that time Jimmy Page used Ernie Ball Super Slinky guitar strings (see Led Zeppelin interview with Steve Rosen (Chicago, 1977)).

It’s hard to find any information on whether the Super Slinky set differed in any way from the same set sold today. The lack of information perhaps suggests that there isn’t – so in case that’s the case, the gauges that Jimmy Page used were as follows –

  • e – .09
  • B – .11
  • G – .16
  • D – .24
  • A – .32
  • E – .42
