Ernie Ball 2723 Cobalt Light Slinky Electric Guitar Strings 09 - 42
One set of Ernie Ball Cobalt Light Slinky Wound Electric Guitar Strings
Ernie Ball Cobalt Slinkys®, the iconic electric guitar strings optimised with a new alloy formulation widely revered by hundreds of guitar greats including Steve Morse, John Petrucci, Randy Jackson, Tony Levin, and Slash
Cobalt strings' special iron/cobalt blend attracts the magnets in your pickups better than any other alloy. The smooth slinky feel of the strings means your pick will seem to glide over the strings, letting you execute fast passages effortlessly. And when you plug in, you'll get increased power, beefy yet defined lows, improved midrange focus, harmonics, and sustain and crisp highs. These non-coated strings are strong, and will last longer than most, making them a sensible option with added growl!

By: Mr. Colin Hailey on 14 November 2014I have been using these strings since EB first bought them out. I was using Super Slinkies but the Cobalts are much brighter, slinkier and seem to hold their brightness, playability and tenability for much longer.
