Watch Slash and His Guitar Tech Discuss Ernie Ball Paradigm Strings

In this new clip, Slash and his long-time tech, Adam Day, discuss their guitar string of choice—Ernie Ball Paradigm.

As the company’s latest innovation, Paradigm represents the most advanced string technology ever created, and the strings are the first to come with a fully backed guarantee: If they break or rust within 90 days of purchase, Ernie Ball will replace them free of charge.

"To this date, I haven't broken a Paradigm string yet. They hold up,” Slash says.

The strings feature a combination of Ernie Ball’s proprietary Everlast nanotreatment coupled with a breakthrough plasma process that further enhances the corrosion resistance like never before.
