ABOUT ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS

Ernie Ball electric guitar strings allow any musician to get the perfect tonal quality and sound they are looking for. One of the first music companies to make guitar strings specifically crafted for rock musicians, Ernie Ball knows the feel, sound, and look that today's musicians want to achieve. Slinky strings became a household name and one of the best guitar strings for rock because Ball listened to the needs of musicians just like him and manufactured a product that was custom-made to rock.

World-class musicians including Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Page, Pete Townsend, Angus Young, Joe Perry, Slash, Billie Joe Armstrong, Metallica, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, John Mayer, and Avenged Sevenfold trust Ernie Ball electric guitar strings to produce their own unique sounds.

Our electric guitar strings line includes the iconic Nickel Wound Slinkys, Reinforced (RPS), M-Steel, Stainless Steel, Cobalt, Pure Nickel, and Coated Titanium RPS.

There are over 200 choices of electric guitar strings, combining Ernie Ball's diverse selection of materials, string gauges, and styles. Ernie Ball electric guitar strings come in a variety of different high quality materials including M-steel, cobalt, nickel, stainless steel, titanium, and bronze. Our guitar string sets are available for 6-string, 7-string, 8-string, 9-string, 10-string, and 12-string guitars.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional, you can find the right strings for your level and guitar type. Thinner string gauges are typically better for beginning musicians because they are easier to bend with an uncalloused hand. If you are looking for strings to stand up to heavy shredding and produce more volume, then thicker gauges are what you are after.

To find which Ernie Ball strings are right for you, the key is experimentation. Figure out which strings sound best to your ear, feel best on your fingers, and most importantly enable you to create the music you want.
