Bass Strings


Ernie Ball, along with George Fullerton, created one of the world’s first modern acoustic bass guitars in the early 1970s. He wanted to create an instrument that would better match the acoustic guitar. An innovator in instruments as well as the strings that go on those instruments, Ernie Ball now sells over 100 different types of bass guitar strings.

Specialty Strings
