Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Strings are perfect for those who like to detune their instrument to lower tuning combinations. Metal fans worldwide have gravitated towards the Not Even Slinky set to give their guitar the optimal gauge combination for Drop D & Drop C tuning.

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.

Great for Low Tuning

By Jacob Williams

from Strongsville, OH

Comments about Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

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

By Andre Rist

from nashua, NH

Comments about Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

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

They're telling the truth

By Roy Leon

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

All those videos you've seen with Slash and Petrucci are true. I play mostly metalcore and melodic death metal with EMGs and lots of high gain, but I can attest to the clarity. Even at high gain tones, when you play a chord you can hear each strings' voice clearly, no muddiness. Pick attack is more noticeable, your picking angle and gauge makes a huge difference in your sound than with other strings. Overall, both the bass (wound) and treble strings have more high end. High end that cuts even through the bass overtone of your C notes. Super easy to coax out crystal clear pinch harmonics. If you drop tune, open palm-mutes on the 6th and 5th strings have an orgasmic resonance, imo. Not kidding, these strings are awesome. This is all based on the 12-56 strings, tuned to Drop B, Drop C, and C standard with EMGs 60 and 81.

Broke when first started to tune them up!!!

By Alec McWilliams

from lowell, in

Comments about Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

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.

Update: due to the defective pack I bought before

By Alec McWilliams

from Lowell, IN

Comments about Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

Alright, So I got a new pack of the same strings which did not break on me as soon as I started tuning. All I can say is...WOW! these are honestly one of my new favorite strings. The sound on each string sounds great. I had the Gibson guitar string then the Standard Slinky. These are way better, major difference in string sound! I play a lot of metal and hard rock. I only got these because Kevin Skaff from A Day to Remember use these in his guitar. Now I see why.

sound great, may need peg work

By EDWARD

from PDX

Comments about Ernie Ball 2726 Cobalt Not Even Slinky Electric Guitar Strings:

I love these strings, wonderfully SHARP but with good low end too. I play only with fingers so I need a lot of attack and these have it; the high frequency off the wound strings is head and shoulders above plain nickel wound. The unwound strings are, of course, exactly the same as regular slinkys. I have med-jumbo Jescar SS frets and this too helps with brightness. If you don't like bright you can always roll it off at the amp but these strings have great power. One thing I noticed with my last set (which last ~2-3 months of 1-3h daily playing) is that a couple of the new strings snapped at the Sperzels, but once I rounded off some sharp edges with a needle file the EBs are again bullitproof. An added benefit is that with fairly radical Kahler usage and no lock nut they come back to pitch 90% of the time, very stable after about 1 week break in.
