A couple years ago I was told to try Ernie Ball's and the moment I put them on my guitar and played them, I knew I had found a winner. These strings, especially for bass, last forever. I have NEVER broken an Ernie Ball string and I abuse my guitar & bass strings. These strings retain a punching tone even after months of use (although it will be much better for the first few weeks). These strings feel great and don't lose their sound. I've played many other string brands including pricier ones and the sound just doesn't last. D'Addarios mellow out far too quickly, and other brands such as GHS don't even feel right. There is no other string that I will ever use. No matter what gauge string, even the Super Slinky Bass, gives me a huge tone and punch from all my basses.

I got these string because I had broken my other pair. I had heard many good things about Ernie Ball so I got them, put them on, and at first they sounded amazing. I loved the sound. I've had them on for about a week and now I say don't buy these. If you need a quick fill in on strings and are on a budget, get them. But after the first week, they have a very bland tone for slap, pick, and regular finger playing. And for some reason, I play over an hour every day and when I'm done, my fingers are black from the strings. I don't know if that happened to anyone else but it happened to me.

              I like the tone of the larger Regular Slinky. The E string really growls, and they last a long time. Never had one to break, and I'm rough on them.

                These are the only strings I use anymore. Back when I was a touring musician, I had an Ernie Ball endorsement and I got hooked on the sound.

                Whatever bass you use, a new set of these will make it sound better. And what a great price.

                        I had no clue how dead my old strings were until I popped these on. The sound of my bass suddenly livened up and it sounds SO much better. They're nice and bright, sound great for metal. They feel good most of the time, but in a few spots they can be a little rough, but callused fingers will have no problem. Overall, great buy for the money.

                        I must say this is my first set of Ernie Ball strings since I started playing in 1978. I don't know why I never used them but I just didn't think of it before. I usually use Rotosound Swing Bass or Blue steel most recently. I decided to try these based on reviews and I have to say so far I am very impressed. The slightly heavier gauge is just what I was looking for. These feel really nice and have a great growl that I was missing. I will be using these again and again.

                        Ok, so i used to used Ernie Ball super slinkys, but my local music store didnt have any, so i bought these. These are so much heavier than the supers, a bit thicker clearly, and overall better sounding. Buy these.
