(The NAMM Show, Anaheim, CA – January 24, 2019) – Ernie Ball (Booth 4320, D5), the world's premier manufacturer of guitar strings, musical instrument accessories and volume pedals, has introduced its new line of ukulele strings.
Made from nylon monofilament, these strings are offered in either a traditional clear resin for a bright, balanced tone with excellent projection, or a black resin for a warm, rich tone with percussive attack. Uniquely the strings feature ball-end construction for easy installation and enhanced tuning stability (a benefit over most brands, which require tie-end tuning). Gauges are .028, .032, .040, .028", suited for concert and soprano ukes.
Both sets of Ernie Ball ukulele strings will be available in March 2019. U.S. pricing: $5.49.
