these things are awesome! Not only do they produce a bright

 on February 12, 2018

I recently dusted off my old Ibanez EDB 600 and decided to restring it and clean it up a bit. I’ve primarily played with either Elixer or Dean Markley Blue Steels on my basses and after reading that Justin Chancellor plays Ernie Ball I decided to go with the Hybrid Slinks. Holy Christ on a graham cracker crutch, these things are awesome! Not only do they produce a bright, crisp sound on the highs but they also have excellent punch on the mid-range and clear, distinct tones on the low end. Even my 25+ year old Fender amp picks up every note with shocking clarity. Seriously, don’t waste anymore money on pricey Elixers or Boomers that promise to “stay bright” a little longer. What you get in marginally increased longevity with these strings you give up in sound and nearly instant improvement to the sound of your bass. Don’t be a dope, buy these strings and keep on keeping on.

Good for classic rock

The E string broke while restringing my bass the first time, so I contacted the seller and they INSTANTLY got back to me, and sent me out a new set within 2-3 days. So props to them for that!

Versatile Bass Strings

These strings are excellent. They have a punchy, full tone and retain their brightness even after extended time of playing them. They’re great for slapping and popping, both in tone and responsiveness. I play them for several hours every day and haven’t notice any major shifts in tonality or brightness. With an overdive pedal, you can bring out a deep growl while still retaining the low-end warmth. With a pick, you can get a clear, metallic and responsive tone. They can provide a very versatile range of sounds, from a jazzy thump to a metal growl. And for the price, it’s hard to find better.

Perfect choice!

I’ve used these strings my entire life. I own both 4-string and 5-string bass guitars, and these guys give me the perfect tone. I love that punk rock-harsh steel sound that you hear from bands like Rancid, Guns and Roses and Foo Fighters; a sound that I get from playing with these strings.

Ernie Ball makes consistently great quality strings. My go-to brand for both bass and guitar strings.

This set has a great gritty character

This set has a great gritty character, awesome for picking. You can notice that string tension is not that balanced on this set.

My guitar has got a soul now

I’m not gonna give any detailed technical speech because i’m not good with that but let me tell you my before and after story.

A solid purchase

I’m surprised how well the B string plays. I expected it to be a little floppy on my 34-scale bass, but that was not the case at all. I probably will change brands next time just to experiment, but I’d still recommend these and will come back to them if I find nothing better.

Great strings

 on October 25, 2017
By Kindle Customer
As always, great strings. Not quite as bright as I would have hoped for with roundwounds but have a great sound and feel like all slinky strings by Ernie Ball. You can’t go wrong with these strings.

Great for drop tunings

By Johnny Klocko
About the heaviest gauge string on the market. Great for drop tunings, and hard players. Or a mix of both. Won’t break the bank either (looking at you DR)
