  • Great for Low Tuning

    As reviewed by Jacob Williams on 2/20/2013

    Cobalts have a nice tone to them, less twangy than standard sets, but not so mellow as to get muddy with low tunings and high gain. I have this set on my Les Paul Nightfall now in Drop Bb, and it sounds clearer than my previous set did, even though it was a whole step higher. There is one thing that bothers me, though. In the last few years, string makers stopped winding the G when above 20. This set has a solid G at 24, and I could not get it to stay in the tail end of my Floyd Rose. It was simply too thick to be an unwound string. That G broke a day after I got the set simply because I had to put it back on so many times. I happened to have a D from another fresh set that was also a 24 and was wound, so I put that on to replace it, and it stayed. I would really like Ernie Ball to wind their G's, as I do not feel like buying it as a D separately just so that I may have it stay on my guitar.

  • not up to all the hype

    As reviewed by Andre Rist on 4/11/2012

    They definitely aren't up to all the hype that they've been getting. they are fairly rough and took me a while to get used to them, and there wasn't any crazy increase in output or tone. the tone is just OK. i wasn't thrilled, especially for $10 a pack. the titanium slinky's were MUCH better but they don't make them in a set of 12's. i'll probably be back to the dunlop's

  • Broke when first started to tune them up!!!

    As reviewed by Alec McWilliams on 3/9/2013

    I don't visit GC regularly so getting a few packs of strings is a occasion. I love to drop tune so I saw these and tough to give these a shot so I bought them and went home to put on my Gibson Les Paul and as soon as a started on the 6th string, SNAP! It broke. I must've gotten a defect, but this is unacceptable, especially for the price.
