Try the new and improved slinky feel and fat tone.

Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings are round-wound for maximum clarity and serious punch. 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 Bass Strings are the new standard! Bigger, better tone, sustain and volume. Finally a real innovation with strings." - Randy Jackson
"I can't believe how much low end I get out of Ernie Ball Cobalt Bass Strings. Also, the high end is super crisp, seemingly with more definition. Unbelievable." - Dave Larue

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.

Gauges 50-70-85-105.

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings:

      I have been playing bass since the early sixties and have never had such a good sound, and good action. I will be getting a set for my 5 string Fender Jazz bass soon.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings:

          I wanted to try these strings out of curiosity, I liked these at first, but they are too bright for bass at first. Then I found out that these strings only last 3 months. I only played my bass once a week for 2 hours a day and I opened my case one day and they were so rusty, they smelled really bad. I went back to the regular strings and they are in much better shape than the cobalt strings were after one month.

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings:

              I'm experimenting with different bass strings and was impressed by the Cobalt strings for my Taylor, Gibson and Fender electric guitars. The Cobalt Bass regular slikny strings are a good fit for my Fender Precision, and produce a very nice sound. For some reason, the "A" string is producing a buzz BEHIND the nut (between the nut and tuner) - ??? This is the first time I've encountered that.

              Strings have lots of output and would really shine for slap

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings:

              I play mostly in a blues band, and like a fat, thick tone with lots of bottom and some midrange punch. I was excited about these strings after hearing about their increased output. However, for my purposes I find that they have too much ring and higher frequency harmonics and overtones, and don't give me that down and dirty sound I'm looking for. Perhaps after using them while they will mellow out and give a more pleasing tone. But for now I would say these would be best for slap and pop, where you want a real strong response in the higher registers. For me right now they don't fit the bill for what I'm looking for.I play mostly in a blues band, and like a fat, thick tone with lots of bottom and some midrange punch.

              Great strings

              Comments about Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings:

              To repeat, the best roundwounds out there.
              High output, tons of bottom and top end, easy on the hands.
              Best roundwounds I have tried.
              Great price.
