More about Ernie Ball

Ernie Ball, a household name in the world of guitar strings and accessories, has been crafting top-notch electric guitar and bass strings since 1962. With legends like Paul McCartney, Keith Richards, Eric Clapton, Slash, Jimmy Page, and Buddy Guy trusting Ernie Ball for their unique sound, it's no wonder the brand is a leading manufacturer in the industry.

Originating in the United States in 1962, Ernie Ball was determined to produce reliable, high-quality strings at reasonable prices. This vision was inspired by the founder's own experiences as a guitarist, guitar teacher, and electric guitar shop owner. The inception of the now-famous Slinky guitar strings was a result of Ernie's desire to create strings that were easier to bend and finger for his students.

Ernie Ball's journey didn't stop at guitar strings. In 1972, the brand recognized the demand for acoustic bass guitars and introduced the Earthwood bass, filling a void left in the market. Fast forward to the 1980s, the family-owned Ernie Ball company acquired Music Man, further solidifying its place in musical history.

Over the years, Ernie Ball has continued to innovate, developing various string types, guitar accessories, and pedals. The brand remains closely connected to the music community, sponsoring events like the Warped Tour Battle of the Bands and engaging with musicians worldwide.

Ernie Ball's commitment to quality, innovation, and affordability has made it a go-to choice for guitarists and bassists alike. Whether you're a beginner or a legendary rock star, Ernie Ball's diverse range of products offers an unparalleled palette of expressive options, ensuring that you'll find the perfect fit for your musical endeavors.
