New Ernie ball Cobalt


Recommended Posts

It annoys me to no end that they won't wind the 3rd string on their thicker gauge regular style strings.

 

I love the feel and sound of Ernie balls so I end up going with the Nickel wound which I love, but they are on the expensive side.

This, nothing beats a tightly wound G string.

Yeah, I don't understand why they don't. I have heard people use the excuse that wound 3rd of such a size will break and I say bull{censored}. I bend the {censored} out of my 3rd and I have never broken one from it. Always break last the last 3 out of all the strings.

im picking up a few packs once my local shop lets me know that they are in stock.


but it will be hard to switch from dunlop

 

 

:thu:I love dunlop too. I switched to them when they first came out. They sound excellent when they break-in and last twice as long as EB & D'A's. Send me PM or follow up on this thread. Let us know what you think of Cobalts.

Ya they are fine. Maybe its just cheaper to make the plated kind.

Dunlop here as well. Rev Willy's Mexican Lottery Brand. I bought 3 6-packs to keep on hand. GC doesn't stock these. They have more nickel than steel, but not a pure nickel wound. Last forever too. Prior to the MLBs I was playing Cleartone.

 

As for the topic...I remember a revolutionary acoustic string being out a couple years ago called "RED"Strings. I don't see them anymore either.

But, as I do with any new string on the market, I will give these a try. Eventually. Maybe. I still have a set of GHS Santana, Titanium Coated, Helix, and Thomastik-Infeld strings to try one of these days too.

I'd like to try them. I personally almost never break strings unless I'm doing something really stupid so I don't really mind paying a couple bucks more if they sound really good.

If you like a wound 3rd why don't you just buy a really light gauge D string? Most guitar shops around here sell EBs individually. Ive been curious to try Dunlop strings myself. I just ordered a set of Rev. Willy G's Mexican Lottery Brand 10 gauge. Im assuming they're just regular Dunlops with cool packaging. .
