The Ernie Ball Custom Gauge 14-1014 refers to a specific set of guitar strings manufactured by Ernie Ball.
The number “14” represents the thickness of the highest (thickest) string in the set. In this case, it indicates that the first string, also known as the high E string, has a gauge of .014 inches. The higher the number, the thicker the string.
The range “10-14” indicates the progression of string gauges from the highest to the lowest string in the set. Therefore, the lowest (thinnest) string, also known as the low E string, has a gauge of .010 inches. The range “10-14” signifies that the set includes strings with gauges of .010, .013, .017, .030, .042, and .052 inches, respectively.
Ernie Ball offers a wide range of string gauges to cater to different playing styles and preferences. The Custom Gauge 14-1014 set falls into the category of heavier gauge strings, which can provide a thicker and more robust tone. These strings are often favored by guitarists who play in lower tunings or prefer a heavier feel and more pronounced string tension.
