Ernie Ball launched their 2151 Earthwood Phosphor Bronze Rock and Blues Acoustic Guitar Strings, and they are flying off the shelves and into the hands of guitarists who want that classic Ernie Ball sound and guitar strings that are built to last. Ernie Ball has long dominated the music marketplace for quality instrument strings because of their professional-grade sound and reliable tone capabilities. All players feel proud when their guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, or lap-steel is suited-up with Ernie Ball strings and guitar accessories. These phosphor bronze rock and blues strings have an added grit that truly beefs up your tone and projection.

A Successful Combination of Quality Materials

Phosphor Bronze is a member of the family of copper alloys. It combines phosphor and tin, and occasionally additional materials. In this case, they are constructed with 92% copper, 7.7% tin, and 0.3% phosphorus wire wound upon a hex-shaped, tin-plated steel core wire. These strings produce an edgy and articulate punch with full-bodied overtones that guitarists love. Their gauge range is .010-.052.

Greatness Takes Time to Procure

Back in the day, Ernie Ball tried to persuade many large guitar manufacturers to create a line of thinner guitar strings because he foresaw the tone range potential, but no company realized the true need for newly designed and innovative instrument strings. Since establishing his own successful string line, Ernie Ball strings have been showcased in hundreds of top-selling albums across all musical genres and have decorated the guitars of some the most famous musicians on the planet including The Rolling Stones, Angus Young, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Paul McCartney, Pete Townshed, Aerosmith, Metallica, just to name a few.
