Good strings, good sound

Razvan L., 11.03.2016
These strings go well with my Fernandes Burny EB-3 SG bass. Tension is good and tone is great and sound consistent even when down tuning. Price is a bit high, but I guess it will be worth it in time as I don't think I'll have to replace them too soon. But they feel awesome on the finger tips!

Modern sounding flats

Uwe053, 02.02.2016
For some years now I have been using Flatwound - Strings in quite thick thicknesses on my Fender Precision Bass bj. 1964. After I heard only about the Ernie Ball Cobalt Flats, I wanted to try them out.

First of all, the strings must be very carefully wound up. On the supplied set, the G string is torn off before reaching the tuning point at the point where the wrapping is reduced to the core. After a complaint by e - mail, a second G - string was delivered, which is also demolished. The Ernie Ball - Vertieb (Musikmeyer) was notified by Customer Service Thomann, who gave me another replacement string.

This string I have also brought up to the mood and have been playing it for 2 weeks now without any further complaints.

The strings are quite soft, compared to the similarly strong La Bella Deep Talking Bass in similar string strengths also significantly easier or more ergonomic to play. The surface feels pleasant.

The sound is reminiscent of EB Nickel Slinkies, with a reduced height, but this is compensated for by balanced balances. They sound oldschool, all flattened sounds are possible with careful use of the soundblende. Even (more careful) slap is possible and sounds too. The tone is very balanced over all 4 strings, no string falls off.

The strings are more likely for drop tunings, as a standard tuning in E has ensured that the delivered and the supplied G - string have already been demolished during assembly, both in the same place, which is due to imho construction. Nevertheless, the purchase is worthwhile if you want to expand the tonal spectrum of its bass. After two weeks of intense playing on the strings, no further damage to the strings has occurred, despite the powerful play. Flatwounds usually last for years, I'm curious how long the Cobalt Slinkys do in this strength.

I would like to emphasize the outstanding customer service at Thomann, which helped me very quickly and unbureaucratically and made sure that my impression of the strings is now a good overall. Only in the processing there is deduction, understandably because of the torn down strings.
