Ernie Ball Slinky bass strings featuring an enamel coating that prevents decay, increases the life of the strings, and offers a slightly warmer sound than non-coated strings.

Gauges: 45-65-85-105

The Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky Coated Bass Strings offer extended life and great playability. An ultra-thin layer of Ernie Ball's exclusive enamel coating protects the strings and preserves their bright sound, while retaining the natural feel of uncoated bass strings.

This micro-thin layer of exclusive enamel coating prevents decay and corrosion up to five times longer than an uncoated set of replacement bass strings. Ed Friedland, the "Bass Whisperer," had a chance to take a sneak peak at a few of their coated bass sets and had this to say: "The coated bass string sounds virtually identical to the non-coated; it's not until I move back to the bridge and dig in that you can hear the slightly warmer character. The string has the detailed mids and full bottom you want from nickel, and an upper midrange presence that will get you heard amidst thrashing guitars and crashing cymbals. Bottom line: if you already dig Ernie Ball Slinkys, you'll dig the coated version—and you'll dig them for longer. If you prefer the sound of nickel strings after they've broken in, these coated replacement bass strings will give you that sound straight out of the pack."

Replace your bass strings and get the enhanced sound of strings that last five times longer than uncoated strings. Grab a bunch and save!

Just perfect!

Comments about Ernie Ball 3833 Coated Bass Strings - Hybrid Slinky:

Great value, Great feel, Great sound!
Great long lasting strings that sound second to no other! These strings are well worth your try if you are looking for great sound and feel. I have to admit that I was not big on coated strings after my tryout with the Elixer strings, but Balls have always been Tops with me, so I thought I would give them a shot! And I have to tell you, I have never looked back, these strings will change the way you attack the neck and give you reason to play when you otherwise would want to call it quits after a long nights session with the band. Give em a shot, you wont regret it!
Long lasting and fantastic sound for long after where other strings lose their edge.
cant beat these for the price vs the longevity
