Try the new and improved strings ideal for drop tuning.

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.

Gauges: 11-14-18-28-38-48.

    Put the Slinky's on my number one strat, and it is now a Tone Monster. Looks like its time to upgrade the back-ups, as well. Great tone all the way up and down the board.

  • What A Difference!

    As reviewed by Carl Tripodi on 3/28/2012

    I nstalled these strings on my PRS Custom24 SE with EMG X series active pick ups, and wow what a difference they made. The notes are more detailed and the guitar sounds more aggressive. I wanted my PRS to sound more aggressive and these Cobalt strings do the job. The guitar sounds more versatile than ever before. The Ernie Ball Cobalt strings will be my strings of choice from now on for my PRS.
