Ernie Ball announces signature set of strings for Slash

The set features brass reinforcement and a Paradigm core.

Ernie Ball has announced a new signature set of strings for Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash.

The strings in the limited-edition set measure in at 11, 14, 18, 28, 38 and 48 – Slash’s preferred gauge. The wound strings feature Ernie Ball’s Paradigm core and plasma-enhanced nickel-plated steel wrap wire, while the plain strings have brass wire reinforcements at the ball end for more stability – preventing slippage and breakage for longer at that vulnerable point.

The strings come in a three-pack, housed in a collectable string tin adorned with a dramatic Slash graphic, his signature Skully logo and the string thicknesses.

You can take a look at Slash introducing the strings in Ernie Ball’s video below:

The set comes in at $34.99 for the three-pack and tin. Find out more over at
