Good bye ElixirI have played since 1974. I remember back in the 70's when strings broke for me on a regular basis. I read about these in a interview with The ball family in Guitar player and felt "why not?" .. I put them on my 2012 Les paul classic custom since I had some issues with elixirs ( was my favorites) staying in tune on it. it was also a instructional moment for my daughter showing her the right way to string em up.
Once i was done and tuned up I proceeded to play the hell out of them doing all sorts of bends and such for about 30 mins. My daughter asked me what was wrong. I was blown away. Still in tune. I have never had strings hold tune like that being brand new. I swear never have I been so sold on something. That was 2 weeks ago and have only had to make a few adjustments. Outstanding !!!!!!

Ernie Ball Slinky Cobalt (Hawaii)I've tried many different strings and wasn't to much a gimmick biter.. Everyone claims to have the best strings and rightfully they should feel that way cause it's their own product.. I have two small string endorsements that I've had for awhile until I got signed by Ernie Ball-music man a month or so ago.. I've used their super slinky for years and lets face it "there's nothing better then a great set of fresh strings on your instruments"! Being that this is my comment and review on these Cobalts I want you to know in no way am I bring partial or bias but giving you a true fact! Ready? Here it comes.. "Ernie Ball Cobalt strings are the best strings I've ever used in my entire life"! I've been a solidified professional full-time musician for 17 years and counting and I'm on stage a minimum of twice a week to 6-7 days a week.. I've literally tried them all or atleast I feel I have.. These strings are a pleasure to use and feel so seductive and light but still holds beautiful tone,sustain is amazing and the output seems to have more gain in it.. Idk what else I could say but this " best strings on the market" hands down! Aloha

I was a GHS Boomer guy... until now...Best tone out of a string I've had in a long time. They stretch out well and my guitar just seemed to have higher, clearer output. I didn't believe there could be that much of a difference between string brands, but this one blows away all the others by far!

thought it was just hypeI don't buy into the next big thing most of the time,but i thought i would try these strings.I noticed a big difference right away.I bought the 10-46 set but to me they play and feel like a 9 set.for some reason the tension seems lighter more rubbery in a sense.I had my setup the same as far as guitar amps and so on,and there is a volume difference.A person just learning to play might not notice it,but its like there is more of what was there before,if that makes sense.I haven't put down my guitar for about 4 hours now,everything seems to be easier to play.....a bit more smooth....

DisappointedI've been a Slinky user for a long time and although these strings sound good, they didn't hold up for my playing. After one gig, they were breaking ( I haven't broke a string in years ). I have acidity hands so I have to wipe the strings clean after every set but it didn't help a bit. I believe I'll go back to the long life coated slinkys as they are more dependable for my playing.
