Overall Rating
No doubt these strings are unique!
What is your overall opinion of this product?
First off the claim Ernie ball makes is high output and clarity. Both completely true! This is notable especially on the wound strings. I had to pretty drastically change lower pickups away from the wound strings. But once I made adjustments considering the cobalt material interacts differently...whamo!!!...they sounded amazing! Now another noteworthy thing about cobalts on the wound strings- they do feel different. A little gritty not quite as smooth. A new set stabilizes really quickly as well! All in all a very unique string set. I had to go back to the drawing board a bit, setup wise, because they're so unique. It was with it for me! I have been using them exclusively.
