NAMM 2024 is here and we’re kicking off with an announcement of all the new Ernie Ball gear. Make sure to follow along on our social media channels starting Thursday, January 25th as a destination for everything NAMM.
Ernie Ball’s all-new Flatwound Guitar strings are the perfect complement for players seeking a warm, mellow tone and a smooth vintage feel. The wound strings are constructed with tin-plated steel hex cores, wound with a stainless steel ribbon wrap that has been polished to a smooth glass-like finish. The resulting sound is vintage-inspired with a dark, smooth fundamental. Due to the polished flat ribbon surface, the inherent finger noise with traditional strings is virtually eliminated making these strings a favorite among jazz players and session recording artists. Ernie Ball Flatwound guitar strings are available starting today in light gauge 11-50 and medium-light gauge 12-52.
Ernie Ball’s Flatwound Bass offerings have been expanded to include 3 new gauges including two short scale sets. All strings feature a polished stainless steel ribbon winding for a smooth, glass-like feel, and a rich, warm tone that’s perfect for a wide range of genres. Precision wound with our custom core-to-wrap ratios and specific gauges, these strings deliver a unique sound and feel, unlike any other offering in our catalog.
