    Comments about Ernie Ball 2843 Hybrid Slinky Stainless Steel Bass Strings:

    I've used several different brands of flatwound strings, and these are high up on the list as far as smoothness and playability. They also have about the best tone of any of the flatwound strings I've used in the past. They give a nice, consistent, full range of tone and would sound great on any fretless or fretted bass.

      They're cheap, and they sound great. I have yet to find a better string set in that price range. I love 'em.

      Great String

      By Colin-XUHyQ

      from Connecticut

      Comments about Ernie Ball 2843 Hybrid Slinky Stainless Steel Bass Strings:

      These strings are less of a "Steel, tough" feel than those of the D'Addario Steel strings, which I have used before. I also like the tone of these better than the D'Addario, they have a little more mids that cut through, I had to level out my EQ more evenly than when I was using the D'Addario's. I have been using these strings for about a month and a half, and they still sound pretty bright.
