The best bass strings in terms of tone!
Kyuuga 18.04.2018
There's no other bass strings like the Ernie Ball Slinkys. Tone-wise they're the best you can get. The moment you put these on, especially after you had some dead strings before in your bass, you'll notice a huge sound difference. They're also very easy to play and feel comfortable.

The only downside to them is that they may not last as long as other strings but it's not a huge difference. The tone you get from them is worth the tradeoff.

If you're going to record or play live then I absolutely recommend you load up your bass with a pack of Ernies. There's no other strings like it purely because of the sound you get - crystal clear, very fat and growly.

The sound is really crips and clear!
Brivet 23.08.2021
I've pun on these before going to the studio, and man, even the guy from there told me my bass never sounded this good (we recorded an album before that when I used coated strings, more expensive but the tone was not as good as this one)

They lasted quite a lot of time, too. I will get again this set :)

Bought it 'cause it was cheap, got blown away

Earnie Ball Hybrid Slinky on Fender Mustang Bass,
They give more punch to the sound and maybe because of the way they package the strings, they felt like they came out of the factory today!

Honestly you can really hear a difference.
I'm hoping to see if they will last long or not, but for now I'm pretty happy.

Good strings if you like a scooped sound
TrEr 15.09.2019
I got these strings for my Stingray. They're great strings for the classic Ray sound. Powerful lows, scooped mids, rather bright for nickle plated strings. In a way they're the exact opposite of GHS Boomers which are all about lower mids.

I have to admit that neither Slinkys not Stringrays are my personal favourites but it's a nice sound to have in my arsenal and for anyone craving that scooped sound the Slinkys are great.

One negative though: They don't seem to last very long.

I recommend these strings for anyone looking for powerful lows, sizzling highs and somewhat scooped mids. Vintage P-bass fans may want to look elsewhere.
