Always the Best, Always Ernie Ball
KnobbyKnobKnob, 16.12.2020
Extremely well made strings. Perhaps the best flatwound I've ever used. I use these on all of my fretless basses. They're warm, they sound clear, and they are bright, all at the same time. I will always continue to use these strings.

Surprised by bright tone and clarity.
Ozziewas., 20.06.2018
Thought I'd try out flats for the first time and was expecting them to be duller and less toneful than my usual round wounds, but was really pleasantly surprised by them.
They're quite expensive, being over £50 for a 5 set, but feel much smoother under to fingers and easier to play without string squeak.
Just ordered another set for my other axe.

Superbe jeu pour 5 cordes
Jean Bernard M., 16.05.2020
Reçu depuis 10 jours et mise en place sur une Ibanez TMB35-MGR Talman Short Scale, le son est changé radicalement (la corde Si est beaucoup plus relevée, et le petit bruit métallique a pratiquement disparu) GENIAL

Probleme mit Cobalt Flats
Uwe053, 26.02.2019
Von dem Ton der Cobalt Flats habe ich schon viel fgehört, und so habe ich mich entschieden, sie auf einem meiner Precision-Bässen aufzuziehen. Leider ist mir die G-Saite lange vor dem Erreichen der Stimmung abgerissen. Und zwar an einer Stelle, an der kein evtl. scharfes Bauteil eine Saite beschädigen kann, genau zwischen Sattel und String Tree. Hier möchte ich den (wieder einmal) ausserordentlichen Service von Thomann loben, denn es wurde mir nach kurzer Prüfung (Foto) eine Ersatzsaite zugeschickt - die allerdings an der selben Stelle wieder abgerissen ist. Thomann hat mich dann gebeten, meine Kundendaten an den Exporteur weitergeben zu dürfen, damit der sich weiter um meinen Garantieanspruch kümmern kann. Ich habe dies zugelassen.
Nach kurzer Zeit kam ein großes Paket vom Importeur von Ernie Ball MusicMan bei mir an, auf dessen Grund ich dann eine weitere G-Saite finden konnte. Diese hat das Aufziehen klaglos überstanden. Bis heute macht mit der Saitensatz viel Freude auf meinem alten Precision Bass (Bj. 1964). Die anfänglichen Schwierigkeiten haben mich nicht daran gehindert, einen weiteren Satz, der für einen Fender Classic 50's Precision Bass gedacht ist, zu bestellen. Denn der Ton der Saiten passt hervorragend zu dieser Sorte Bass.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
