San Luis Obispo, CA (February 2, 2021) -- Ernie Ball introduces the Pegwinder Plus, an advanced new approach to this essential tool for guitarists. It features an ultra-smooth ball bearing design for fast and easy string changes and -- thanks to its universal peghead design and integrated bridge pin puller -- the Pegwinder Plus is suitable for most electric and acoustic guitars and basses. Features also include a soft, comfortable grip and a scratch-free peghead to prevent unwanted damage during string installation. This compact pegwinder fits easily in most cases or gig bags and makes a great addition to any musician’s tool kit.

ROAD-READY DESIGN

When it comes to live string changes, every second counts. Brightly colored and ergonomic, the Ernie Ball Pegwinder Plus is easy to find on a dark stage, and comfortable to grip in the heat of the gig. With the unique ball-bearing design, every turn is smooth and fluid, letting you bring your new string safely up to pitch and start the next song.

ONE-STOP STRINGING

When you have multiple guitars in your studio or live rig, the Ernie Ball Pegwinder Plus is the one-stop solution. Featuring a universal peghead that’s compatible with most all major electric, acoustic and bass models, this standalone tool takes care of string changes for the whole band. Plus, with the Pegwinder’s non-abrasive peghead, you’ll never worry about damaging your finish.

THE ALL-IN-ONE TOOL

Working musicians know that stubborn acoustic bridge pins can be the hardest part of a string change, but the Ernie Ball Pegwinder Plus gives peace of mind during unplugged sets.
