Ernie Ball

Check out this combo of two Ernie Ball favorites in one pack.

Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Strings are a perfect match for those who like the ability to combine the combination of Super and Regular Slinkys. The Cobalt Series is clearly an improvement on its classic nickel-wound counterpart giving the player increased sustain, clarity and output. In addition, they resist sweat and moisture better and have unmatched flexibility when compared to other nickel wound strings.

"Ernie Ball Cobalt Strings sound and feel better than anything I've ever played! You have to check these out!" - Slash.
"Cobalt Strings feel incredibly silky under my fingers and deliver more punch, output, and clarity than normal strings!" - John Petrucci.
"There's a certain degree of clarity and punch you get from Cobalt Strings that I haven't heard tonally from any other strings I've played." - Joe Bonamassa.

All Ernie Ball strings are precision manufactured to the highest standards and the most exacting specs to assure consistency, optimum performance and long life. Made in the USA.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

          These Cobalt Slinkys are pretty great quality. They have a warm and lucid tone and sound pretty loud unamplified. I use a floyd rose tremolo system and they can take a beating. They are pretty easy to navigate on as well. Especially the three unwound strings. I've had strings in the past that were sharp, but these are silky smooth.

            Comments about Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

            The only reasonable use for these expensive gadgets would be as a cat toy. Seriously, they cost too much, sound harsh as nails on a chalkboard and won't stay in tune consistently, especially on a Rose equipped ax. I've heard of more than a couple of trigger-men who've put their names on the dotted line as users; personally I don't think the strings stayed on longer than than the end of the interview. After only 1 week, I'm back to my D'Addario Hybrid set and it went from stretched to staying in tune in 3 days.

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              Without a doubt, these are the best strings I've ever used. I play a HSS Stratocaster, and I'd been looking for a bit more punch to my tone than I was getting with Fender or nickel-wound Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys. Tried these babies on a whim, and, while you're paying twice as much for them, they're worth every penny. They bend beautifully, have terrific harmonics, and last way longer than any strings I've ever used(I'm talking, like, six months with daily practice). I did have to adjust my pickups to balance out the new tone, but, overall, I feel like my guitar plays better and sounds better with these strings, compared to their nickel-wound equivilent.

              The wound strings sound like a piano! Loud and strident. The unwound strings sound great but slightly overpowered by wound strings. Great feel.

              New and Different, not for me..

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              I waited awhile for this string to finally become available. I got my first set last week and strung up one of my Gibson Vs. Right from the start I wasn't that sure whether I would like them or not. In appearance they resemble stainless steel strings, and the way they feel under fret is similar to stainless as well. Their tone is indeed clearer and more articulate, and *maybe* more output in the upper frequencies, but to my ear this tone was more of a shift then a complete boost. I felt the increase in upper mids, and cleaner note production came at a cost of the lower frequencies and overall warmth. Last night at rehearsal I wasn't happy at all with my tone. It was acceptable, but I felt my amp's low end punch had somewhat vanished..and lacked the character it typically has.

              I have been a fan of Ernie Ball's RPS slinkys for over twenty years, trying out other strings but always coming back. They just seem to add the finishing touch in NAILING that highly coveted Marshall/Gibson tone that I die for. These strings were a departure from that standard. Finally, their cost is twice the amount of a standard set of Slinkys...

              Can you imagine what strings I am getting next?

              Everything I expect from Ernie Ball

              By Rayce Coyle

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              I absolutely love these strings. They're smooth, sweat resistant, and the cobalt makes them more magnetic, which boosts your output substantially. Will definitely be adding these to my EB vault.
              You can't really have too many features on strings, but I love the cobalt outer layer. Somehow the strings feel smoother and I really like the feeling.
              They are Ernie Balls. Never had a bad set with them and I don't see me ever having a problem with these wonderful strings.
              You can get the regular HS strings for half the price, but I think that these will last you twice as long.

              Matches Product Description Perfectly

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2722 Cobalt Hybrid Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

              First thing I noticed when playing the guitar unplugged, is these strings are LOUD.
              Plugged in they definitely sound and feel bigger. They have a punchy low end. They feel silky smooth to the touch, and they definitely give the guitar more output. Buy them now!
