Ernie Ball has unveiled the redesign of its innovative website, www.ernieball.com. Easily one of the most comprehensive music industry spots on the web, Ernie Ball continues to push the boundaries of website innovation. Ernie Ball Radio will act as a virtual jukebox, with songs from the most recognizable musicians on the planet. The station is in full compliance with ASCAP, BMI, SESAC and Soundexchange.

"We relish our role as a pioneer, first with strings, now with a website unlike any other designed by a music industry manufacturer," said Brian Ball of the Ernie Ball Company. "The updated website is an ambitious undertaking, but it is a great way to connect with our customers, dealers and musicians." The home page, depicting an animated newsletter complete with streaming graphics, loads quickly and gives a snapshot of featured artists, products, happenings, news and more.

In addition to Ernie Ball Radio, the new website will provide inside information on Ernie Ball's Elite Alliance of Artists, with photos and details of the exact string preferences of each artist. The radio station will feature music from both up and coming acts as well as household names including Led Zeppelin, Slash, Incubus, NOFX, Kenny Chesney, Steve Vai, and Blink 182. For in-depth interviews with featured artists, users can click on the Interview bar.
