  • Great All-Around String

    As reviewed by 94Down on 11/21/2006

    I picked up a pack of these jewls today and I'm never going back to the old strings I used to play with. Previously, I used Power Slinkies, but I found that they have a very muddy sound due to their thickness. I love the bright, punchy, and satisfying sound that comes out of these babies. I highly reccomend these from one musician to another. 5/5 from me.

  • Incomparable

    As reviewed by Nighthawk551 on 10/17/2006

    The Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys are hands-down the best bass strings on the market. I would use no other; I come back to these every time. They can take an old or cheap bass and make it sound and feel so much better. The Hybrids are just the right gauge: not too thin, not too thick. I have played strings of lighter and heavier gauges, and was not satisfied. The first time I tried these, they were the perfect fit. These Slinkys have a long lifespan! I am on stage weekly, and play daily. A set of these last me over a month. They break in easily and quickly as well. I do notice they give off a particularly appealing sheen. The sound they give is just perfect. A bright tone can be found with these strings, particularly early in their lifespan. As they age, they become more mellow. Brand new though, they give off a nice deep tone that most bassists look for. Overall, I would highly recommend the Ernie Ball Hybrids to every bassist of any genre!

  • Best gauge and brand...

    As reviewed by volt9stormrider on 9/22/2006

    Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkies are the best bass strings out there. The Hybrid gauge is just perfect and the strings give my Ibanez bass a very bright and poppy sound. The Hybrid gauge is amazing because it is in between the other lower and higher gauges and is great for playing many different varieties of music. Also, these strings are affordable compared to others. If you're looking for some new strings, experiment with these like I did. If you like them enough you'll never go back to any other brand.
