Ernie Ball Paradigm Strings; the world’s most advanced guitar strings ever created – packed with innovation and delivering peerless tone.
Ernie Ball Lineage
For over 50 years, Ernie Ball have been crafting guitar strings in Southern California, defining the standard of rock and roll guitar strings.
Ernie Ball have gone from innovation to innovation; with the introduction of Slinkys in 1962 to the world’s most advanced guitar strings ever produced; the PARADIGM guitar strings.
Ernie Ball have an uncompromising commitment to quality, innovation and tone and nowhere is that more apparent than in their new PARADIGM strings.

A Hall of Fame of Legendary Users
The list of artists that use Ernie Ball strings reads like a rock ‘n’ roll Hall of Fame. Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Slash, Pete Townshend, Keith Richards and Paul McCartney are just a few of the thousands of guitarists that rely on Ernie Ball.
With PARADIGM, Ernie Ball strings continue their incredible legacy of guitar strings and punch the boundaries of what people expect; PARADIGM strings are stronger, more durable and last longer without compromising the tone or feel.
Strongest Strings Known to Man – Incredible Break Resistance
Utilising their new state-of-the-art wire drawing process in combination with their patented RPS (Reinforced Plain String) technology), the tensile strength of PARADIGM strings is increased by up to 35% and offers up to 70% more fatigue strength when compared to traditional guitar strings.
Reinforced Plain Strings securely lock the string into the ball end without requiring a traditional lock twist which adds unnecessary stress to the wire and create a breaking point.
This patented RPS technology that is exclusive to Ernie Ball gives PARADIGM plain strings superior strength and improved tuning ability, allowing you to bend farther and play harder than you could on any other guitar string on the market today.
Both PARADIGM plain strings and wound string core wires are made using ultra fine grain high strength steel using a new state-of-the-art wire drawing process. Thanks to its re-engineered grain structure, these strings can take a whole lot of punishment.
When creating these new, highly advanced strings, it was important to Ernie Ball to create incredibly durable strings but without the using of coating.
Utilising an exclusive plasma enhanced process that removes defects, PARADIGM strings have a vastly improved resistance to corrosion.
Once wound, patented Everlast nanotechnology is applied to the strings which changes the way they react to moisture and oils; wicking them away with ease.
The high heat of the plasma removes contaminants while smoothing out defects to ensure a consistent finish. This gives the strings an incredibly stable microstructure before it is wrapped.
The end results are strings that last longer and sound fresher for longer, and all without the tone-killing side effects and unnatural feeling of coated strings.
As testament to the quality of these strings and Ernie Ball’s faith in them, if your strings break or rust within 90 days of purchase, Ernie Ball will replace them!
