A buddy of mine mentioned, on one of my Instagram posts, that he noticed I use Super Slinky's and suggested I try the Cobalt"s out. Picked up a couple of sets today for my Strat and Tele to start and I have to say, 100% difference in these strings! Wow, I have so much to say...first they have a very different feel to them, tactile that is, very smooth and silky compared to regular. They seem to play in much faster than regular as well, so new sets are going to stay in tune faster. They seem to have more sustain even before plugging in and moving up and down the strings, you'll notice right away the feel of the strings of different gauges is very similar, again tactile feel, making it feel much easier to move up and down the fret board. You have to experience these to fully understand what I mean. After plugging in, you'll find they are much punchier and indeed the sustain is more noticeable, as well as the output. They kick very different. A noticeable increase in output, I would say surprisingly so. Yes they are a little more expensive than regular slinky's but all in all so far its worth the extra cash and from what I also hear they last longer and stay cleaner longer. I'll find out about that as I play these in, but so far, thumbs up on getting these on all my guitars. Great product! Highly recommend you try them out..

I gave them a try and did not care fore them. They sounded great,but had a coarse gritty feel to them that I didn't like. I went back to the the Ernie Ball Extra Slinky as I always do;) It's a matter of personal taste,there a high quality string.

I picked these up for my guitar but was a little skeptical. I had always used ernie ball strings but I'd never tried these before. I was impressed at how incredibly high output these were: resonating more than one would expect from the average set of 11s, and having none of the thickness and problems bending. also they really never get dirty. If you're playing lead and want that high-output sound for your guitar, this is the way to go.

These cobalt strings are the real thing. They stay in tune better, Sound more aggressive, And last longer. These are worth the money...They also don't attract dirty like Nickel.
