Gut für Drop-Tuning
IBLIZZARD, 26.10.2019
Im Grunde genommen ist es das "2836er" Set von Ernie Ball für den 5 Saitigen Bass.

Der einzige Unterschied ist nur, es fehlt die 045er Saite.

Wer 2€ Sparen möchte und ihm die 4 Saiten ausreichen ist es zu empfehlen, keine Frage die Saiten klingen Super wie gewohnt.

Nun zum Fazit:
Ich habe beide Saiten Sets gekauft ( Ernie Ball 2836 Regular Slinky und Ernie Ball 2840 Beefy Slinky) und beide spielen sich Super die Verarbeitung ist identisch und der Sound hält ca. 2 Monate bis man auf die Idee kommt die vielleicht mal auszutauschen,

Einziges Manko:
Die G-Saite kann man leider nicht auf G stimmen, es sind also reine Drop Tuning Saiten oder man tauscht die G-Saite mit etwas leichteren Saiten aus (045) und dann sollte es möglich sein auf E A D G zu spielen.

Also sind es keine Hybrid Saiten wie erhofft sondern, reine Drop Tuning Saiten.

Man kann dieses Problem umgehen wenn man "Ernie Ball 2836 Regular Slinky" kauft und die 1,50€ an Ernie Ball schenkt und den Bass die Saiten 045 - 065 - 080 - 130 aufzieht.

Wem das zu locker ist kann weiterhin auf 065 - 080 - 100 - 130 spielen und auf einen E A D G Stimmung verzichten dafür sich aber auf straffen C oder D Stimmung sich erfreuen.

Aber wenn einer im reinen Drop-Tuning spielen möchte sind die zu Empfehlen, die Saiten halten alle straff im Drop Tuning und sind Stimm stabil.

du grave
SOL7, 22.06.2020
beefy slinky, portent bien leur nom, je voulais du grave, je les ai installées sur une basse Gretsh short scale (je sais, normalement, ça ne se fait pas), mais ça marche du tonnerre, on passe d'un jeu de cordes classique pour un son un peu rock à ce jeu ernie Ball qui envoie du grave façon néo métal, donc, c'est tout bon pour moi! évidemment, il faut s'accorder deux ou trois tons plus bas, sinon votre manche va souffrir, mais avec le grave en do ou même en si, ça passe! si besoin, un petit réglage de truss rod et de chevalet, et c'est parti! merci à Thomann pour le service efficace.
