It’s starting to build and my dad would get letters from guys wanting the strings. He stared doing mail orders. Back then there weren’t roadies and bands like the Beach Boys would be lugging their gear and people would ask them where they got those flexible strings and they said, This crazy guy in California named Ernie Ball….more mail orders.
