Love mAfter reading all the hype I decided to try a set of, Ernie Ball Slinky Cobalt strings on my 02 Jackson DKMG. The Slinky Cobalt strings changed the voice of my guitar, richer, fuller, more body, and will handle higher bending of the strings without brakeage. So smooth fingers glide over these strings. I have ben using E.B. Slinky Cobalt strings for four months on same guitar, and the tone is still great. Only one con, if you like shiny strings buy nickel. I LOVE M.

Good strings...Put these on a new Tele. I normally use 10's but thought I'd give them a try before I had to change the set-up. I think these strings actually sound and feel like 10's to me. I know all strings are different according to your tastes and feel, but I really think I will keep these around awhile and not change to 10's yet. Can't really comment to the output difference claimed, but for me it's all about the feel and tone, which I like so far. I will report again as these strings get played a little more as this Tele is not my main guitar.

Ernie Ball 2723 Cobalt Super Slinky Electric StringsHeard about them at the NAMM show in Anaheim last year so thought i would try a set or two. If you like a "light" gauge string starting at .10, try the super slinky starting at .009. The "light" gauge super slinkys start at .11 or .12. These super slinky's really produce a little bit of extra volume or resonance and they sound really good on my Gibson SG. Recommend trying them for a different sound....
