    Good but

    The welded package is unique and well-known for Earnie Ball. The strings don't have any wiring with cloth, at the end they have golden ball-ends. Strung onto the bass you have much highs in the first hours of playing. The next day you have a different sound, it is more middle-driven with less highs than expected.

    These are my standard roundwound strings. They sound very balanced to my taste and they feel good on the fingers. I like the hybrid factor as I find 100% steel strings too bright and 100% nickel strings too mellow.

    Nothing spectecular but still quite good.

    These were the first Ernie Ball strings i got and I'm still a bit undecided on how i liked them. While playing in the band they sounded great and really punchy. Playing solo...i kind of missed the top end a bit in comparison to other strings I've tried (DRs or Coccos). All in all they were satisfying, yet they didnt last very long.

    More pressure!

    I got tis for my Harley Benton Jazz Bass JB-20 SB,
    and it sounds much better now , much more pressure and higher output than the original string. Very good to play! Great sound!

    Good strings in the mid-range price segment

    First they sound really great and powerful and feel really good on the fingers. Unfortunately, the great sound doesn't last that long. You can play the strings for a longer time, but they lose their brightness quite fast and then they are just some ordinary strings - still not bad, but that's it.
    I play Elixir strings now and wouldn't go back to Ernie Ball, but for someone, who doesn't want to spend more than 50 euros for one set of strings and is willing to lower his sights after a short while, the Hybrid Slinkys should be a very good choice!
