Strings, Picks, and Accessories

- Ernie Ball electric guitar strings (he stated in an interview gauges: 10,13,16,26,32,42 and 46 for drop D)
- Ernie Ball RPS10 strings (as listed on Ernie Ball website)



- Dimarzio 2" Nylon ClipLock straps (he uses the purple)



- Ernie Ball medium-heavy pick, custom printed with his name

Note: Steve did a video for Ernie Ball of him testing the Cobalt string (gauge 10). There is a chance he is using this now, but there's no info out there that shows he moved from the RPS10, at the time of this writing.
