I have these strings installed on a 2007 Paul Stanley guitar. which is just a cheap Lyon by Washburn. I love the sound it makes now . I have other great guitars but this guitar is fast and now sounds just amazing. So I now play this cheapie guitar more often with these strings .Its just amazes me what a good pair of strings can do. I will try a set on my other guitars and see how they may sound.

So I thought I would try these strings because I read some reviews on them and people seemed pretty satisfied. So my first thoughts on them was that they were really clear, more brighter than usual, and were even a little bit louder. But then after only a month and a half (and mind you I only play about an hour or even less a day) I noticed that they started to rust. And there are a LOT cheaper strings out there that don't rust and I bet are just as good. I however don't like to change my strings too often. But if you buy a bunch of these at once and you like the sound and you prefer to change your strings often, then these are for you.

They are bright. Some say too bright but on my guitar they sound great. Not as bright as Maxima Golds but you can't find them anywhere anymore. I find they last well, have higher output than regular strings, stay in tune.. What you want in a set of guitar strings. I have to wonder about the person who said they rust. Maybe they are in a high humidity environment or something. My guitar usually sits out on a stand and I have never had any rust on any strings let alone these. In a week? Wow... I change strings about once a week depending on playing time.. If I don't play much a set may stay on for a month, never any rust.

I should say right up front, I'm not a fan. The cobalt material really produces a different sound that I can't say I like. I also found that these strings don't last as long as others and when they go, they go in a hurry (can't hold tuning, poor magnetic properties, ...)

I have a 60's tribute Les Paul. I swapped my regular nickel strings out for a set of these, hoping to enhance the tone. What I found was that it made the guitar incredibly bright and I honestly hated the sound. If you have a guitar that sounds really dark, definitely give these a shot. Otherwise I would just avoid them.

I really like the strings because they have a high output perfect for hard rock/heavy metal but not for classic rock and blues. The thing that I don't like about the strings is that it is very easy to get rusty. I put them in my Epiphone Les Paul Custom Pro then after a week it will get rusty -_-

I'm a pro guitarist, and have a problem with strings going dead very quickly. I usually have to change strings every 1 - 3 shows depending on the length of show. I am getting 15+ shows on a set of Cobalts. They stay in tune, and they stay "alive"! I won't use anything else on my electric anymore!

I had heard so many unbelievable things about these strings, and to be honest I believed none of them at first; there was just no way strings could do so much. I needed to restring my guitar and so I thought "well, let me try the Cobalt Slinkys, see what the heck people are going on about". Well people... believe all the amazing things you hear about these. I already thought my guitar sounded good, but now I find it difficult to let it go! Just by putting on these strings, my guitar became brighter and more responsive, snappier,clearer, twangier, even (Tele clone, you know) and my sustain improved greatly. Where can I buy a case?

Just got these strings put on my SG. I was very skeptical. I'm amazed!!! They're everything they've been advertised to do. Big thick tone with the best response and sound I've ever gotten from my pickups!! I would seuggest these to anyone!!! Try em' out, I garantee you won't be dissapointed.
