METALLICA’s James Hetfield Has His Own Ernie Ball Strings Now

Metallica‘s frontman James Hetfield has had his fair share of signature guitars over the years… but not strings. Hetfield has now teamed up with Ernie Ball for the first-ever Hetfield strings, named Papa Het’s Hardwired Master Cores.


The Papa Het’s Hardwired Master Cores offer a 11-50 gauge – 11, 14, 18p, 28, 38, 50 – alongside a green tin with artwork designed by Hetfield himself.

“It’s only taken 40 years for me to have my own strings. Come on! With all the companies we’re with, we’re super-proud to be with Ernie Ball. For them to take on the challenge of, ‘Hey, I’ve got an idea, can you do this…’ they have stepped up to the challenge. I’m super-proud!”

Get the strings here for $34.99.
