Try the new and improved slinky feel and fat tone.

Ernie Ball 2736 Cobalt Regular Slinky Bass Strings for 5-string bass are round-wound for maximum clarity and serious punch. The Cobalt Regular Slinky 5-String set 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.

"I can't believe how much low end I get out of Ernie Ball Cobalt Bass Strings. Also, the high end is super crisp, seemingly with more definition. Unbelievable." - Dave Larue

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: 45-65-80-100-130.

  • Awesome, but we need more different gauges.

    As reviewed by KENNETH LYON on 8/2/2012

    I got two sets of this strings for my 5-string basses. One is set on standard tuning (BEADG) or sometimes on drop A (AEADG), and my second 5-string is set on drop A# (A#,F,A#,D#,G#) for my current band. They are loud like EB claims, they are smooth to the touch, and they have a sharp attack. I wish they had more options on gauges, but it is what it is at the moment. I will keep getting this strings because I like the tone, feel, and durability of them. They have gone through two sweaty rehearsals. and they still sound fresh.

  • Not bad

    As reviewed by Scott Horr on 5/25/2012

    I think the clarity of each string is excellent in standard tuning and drop d. But when I try to tune lower it sounds like the strings are too close to the frets and I couldn't get over that buzzing sound. I tried raising the strings and it still didn't seem to help. So overall I think they sound pretty good and if you know how to correctly intonate your bass you might be able to play these strings at lower tuning.

  • Love-Hate

    As reviewed by TROY ORNER on 5/2/2012

    The best sound I have ever had or found in a string! But after 1 show and 2 practices. The D string broke when I was tuning 1/2 step down! Only had them on for 2 weeks. I my try another set just to see if it was a one time bad deal.
