POWER SLINKY COBALT ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS Engineered to maximize output and clarity, Ernie Ball Cobalt Slinky Guitar Strings are the latest innovation in string technology. Seeking to provide guitarists with a new voice, Cobalt strings provide an extended dynamic range, incredible harmonic response, increased low end, and crisp, clear highs. Cobalt provides a stronger magnetic relationship between pickups and strings than any other alloy previously available. Cobalt Slinkys are also soft and silky to the touch, making string bending a breeze.
Ernie Ball 2720 Cobalt Power Slinky Electric Guitar Strings are a perfect match for those who like chunky rhythms for rock and roll or blues. Power Slinkys have long been favored by Slash, Metallica and Kenny Wayne Shepherd due to the thicker gauge combination providing a slightly more powerful tone. 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. Cobalt is the most magnetically active string alloy on the planet and attracts the magnets in your pickups more than any other string.
"Ernie Ball Cobalt Strings sound and feel better than anything I've ever played! You have to check these out!" - Slash.
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.
I've been using Ernie Ball 2223 on my Les Paul Studio and wanted to try EXL115. The low E started to buzz a lot. I thought it was due to the gauge change (.9 to .11). I thought it needed some adjustments on the bridge, truss rod... But before trying that, I removed the strings and restring my guitar with Ernie Ball 2720 (also .11). Where is the buzz?! Gone! And more: it nailed every string tune. Maybe someday I will try EXL 115 againg, but any time soon. Now my favorite strings are Ernie Ball 2223 and Ernie Ball 2720.
