Even the most casual music fan is guaranteed to have heard Ernie Ball acoustic guitar strings in action plenty of times. How could you not, when they're played by a roster of musicians that includes Paul McCartney, The Eagles, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, John Fogerty and Elvis Costello, just to name a few? All of these artists are passionate about music, and so was Ernie Ball - which is why he opened the very first store in North America dedicated exclusively to guitars. And it's why the Ernie Ball business was quick to expand into making world-class guitar strings. He saw the opportunity to do it better than anyone else, and the rest is history.
One of the words most closely associated with Ernie Ball is "slinky," a nod to the legendary lineup of Slinky strings that put them on the map. You'll find your fair share of those here in the acoustic guitar selection, like the 2150 Extra Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings and the 2144 Power Slinky Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings. There's even an option for those of us who prefer twice the number of strings: the 2153 Slinky Phosphor Bronze Light 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings. Like all Ernie Ball Slinky strings, these give you outstanding control over every note with their impressive flexibility.
But if you would prefer a more traditional set of strings, have no fear: Ernie Ball offers plenty of those as well. For folk strummers, it's hard to beat the Earthwood series, which gives you material choices like bronze in the 2003 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Medium Light Acoustic Strings or nylon with the 2069 Earthwood 80/20 Bronze Folk Nylon Ball End Acoustic Guitar Strings. Maybe you'd like to try a set of strings that mixes traditional design with specialty materials? In that case, the Ernie Ball Aluminum Bronze Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings are definitely worth a look.
The bottom line here is that no matter how you want your acoustic guitar to feel and sound, Ernie Ball has a set of strings that will get it there. All you have to do is take a look through the options in this section and pick it out. Once you're playing your new Ernie Ball strings on your own guitar, it won't take long for you to see firsthand the reason why artists as high-profile as McCartney and Paisley have been choosing them for their gigs and sessions.
