Heavy metal and Ernie Ball go together like two peas in a pod: the company’s got a long and storied history of working with some of the top metal guitar players in the world. But did you know that their M-Steel electric guitar strings are made from the same super-strong cobalt alloy used in high-stress applications for the aerospace and defense industries? It’s true. They’re billed as “the loudest, most expressive strings ever created,” and they ain’t kiddin’. If they’re good enough for John Petrucci, they’re certainly good enough for you.
Ernie Ball makes all sorts of other strings, accessories and apparel for your guitar needs, too, so we’ve teamed up with them, Metal Injection and Gear Gods to offer The Great Ernie Ball M-Steel Guitar String Giveaway. One grand prize winner will receive an Ernie Ball Gear Pack that includes:
- 12 Sets of M-Steel Slinky Strings
- Ernie Ball Toolkit
- Ernie Ball strap
The overall value of everything comes to $350. Since we know all too well how expensive being a musician can be, here’s how we’re gonna do it: to enter, tell us why you really, really, really NEED to win this prize package. This isn’t your 9th grade English essay test, so be creative!
