Nothing Else Will Do.

Woodwork Barn, 16.07.2017
Been playing bass for over 30 years now and in that time I have occasionally tried a few other brands. While some were not overly disappointing, I still found myself going back to the Ernie Ball's.

First off I believe strings are a personal preference thing on a tactile level and can also drastically change the sound of your guitar.

For me the strings work on both levels, feeling smooth and comfortable to play with a fast response. New strings always sound too "jangly" for the first few hours, but after the EB's settle in they give a rich full thick full bodied sound through the right amp. I predominantly play a Precision Bass through Marshall amps and would use no other strings on it.

With Ernie Ball, the bass string prices are a little strong but quality and reliability have never been an issue. At times I have left these strings on a bass for several years and they continued to sound shockingly good.

The only way I think they could possibly be improved was if they came with silks on the ends to protect the tuners a bit, but this really is a minor detail.

All said and done, in my opinion they are the best out there and so long as they don't change, I will continue to use them in all my bass work.

Very highly recommended.

Consistently good bass strings

22.02.2017
I have been using slinkys for a number of years now on a semi-pro basis. I have never had a bad experience with them.

Packaging is always intact on delivery, the strings themselves are fairly bright and zingy to start with, but they soon mellow and keep a good tone for many, many hours playing before finally dropping off. The feel is good, not too slick, but definitely not as rough as some roundwound brands (Rotosound, I'm looking at you!)

Tuning stability is superb if you stretch the strings and bend them properly over the saddles when fitting. In fact, I only have to retune for the first hour of playing fresh strings, after which they'll stay stable gig after gig, night after night...even when using a de-tuner.

This gauge is particularly good for those basses which have weaker output on the d and g strings, or for players who want a higher tension on the upper strings.

Strings always go dead too soon, whatever the brand. I find the price and quality of slinkys is hard to beat when changing them about once a month.
