      Ernie Ball 3833 Coated Bass Strings - Hybrid Slinky (106089717)
Availability:  


Ernie Ball Slinky bass strings featuring an enamel coating that prevents decay, increases the life of the strings, and offers a slightly warmer sound than non-coated strings.

Gauges: 45-65-85-105

The Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky Coated Bass Strings offer extended life and great playability. An ultra-thin layer of Ernie Ball's exclusive enamel coating protects the strings and preserves their bright sound, while retaining the natural feel of uncoated bass strings.

This micro-thin layer of exclusive enamel coating prevents decay and corrosion up to five times longer than an uncoated set of replacement bass strings. Ed Friedland, the "Bass Whisperer," had a chance to take a sneak peak at a few of their coated bass sets and had this to say: "The coated bass string sounds virtually identical to the non-coated; it's not until I move back to the bridge and dig in that you can hear the slightly warmer character. The string has the detailed mids and full bottom you want from nickel, and an upper midrange presence that will get you heard amidst thrashing guitars and crashing cymbals. Bottom line: if you already dig Ernie Ball Slinkys, you'll dig the coated version—and you'll dig them for longer. If you prefer the sound of nickel strings after they've broken in, these coated replacement bass strings will give you that sound straight out of the pack."

    As reviewed by Chris Frazier on 9/20/2009

    I always used to love the Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky gauge 45-105 (orange set)strings so I though I would give these new "Coated" versions a go. I bought 2 sets in Aug'09 and had them sent to Australia. I have been using Elixir Nanoweb Medium strings exclusively for close to 5yrs now and have been very happy with those. So why change ? well it is an age old question that in itself requires a holiday. I strung my Fender Jazz Duluxe up with the EB's and straight away noticed the different resistance with sliding up or down. After about 1 week the tone started to fade and by the end of the 2nd week I was amazed to find the tone had become equally "Flat" across each string. Here I was and they had nothing going for them so I put the 4 month old Elixirs back on and whoa they still had better tone left in them than these "New Coated" strings had at the end of just 2 weeks!!! I am very disappointed with these Ernie Balls Elixirs Rule!!!
