DREAM THEATER - Ernie Ball Paradigm: Stronger Than John Petrucci; Video

Dream Theater guitarist John Petrucci was asked to break a set of the brand new Ernie Ball Paradigm strings and prove he was stronger than the most advanced guitar strings ever created. The results? See for yourself.

Ernie Ball Paradigm guitar strings are the latest innovation from the world's premiere maker of guitar strings since 1962. Paradigm delivers superior strength, unparalleled durability and the legendary Ernie Ball tone - guaranteed.

If your set of Paradigm strings break or rust within 90 days of purchase, Ernie Ball will replace them. Available in electric and acoustic in the most popular gauges.

Next month Dream Theater will resume touring to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Images And Words, playing the classic album in its entirety along with other songs from the band's extensive catalogue.
