The all-new Rabea Massaad Artist Series Sabre Guitar is coming in spring (USA) 2024.

Ernie Ball’s all-new Flatwound Guitar strings are the perfect complement for players seeking a warm, mellow tone and a smooth vintage feel. The wound strings are constructed with tin-plated steel hex cores, wound with a stainless steel ribbon wrap that has been polished to a smooth glass-like finish. The resulting sound is vintage-inspired with a dark, smooth fundamental. Due to the polished flat ribbon surface, the inherent finger noise with traditional strings is virtually eliminated making these strings a favorite among jazz players and session recording artists. Ernie Ball Flatwound guitar strings are available in light gauge 11-50 and medium-light gauge 12-52.

Ernie Ball’s Flatwound Bass offerings have been expanded to include 3 new gauges including two short scale sets! All strings feature a polished stainless steel ribbon winding for a smooth, glass-like feel, and a rich, warm tone that’s perfect for a wide range of genres. Precision wound with our custom core-to-wrap ratios and specific gauges, these strings deliver a unique sound and feel, unlike any other offering in their catalog.
