Comments about Ernie Ball 2812 Regular Slinky Flatwound Bass Strings:

I just bought these strings and was really exited to get in and start practicing with them. First let me say that up to this point I had been using the cobalt roundwounds, and was really exited when I foun out that they made them in flat wound as well because I had been wanting to try flatwound strings. I tuned up each string and after about 15 mins of playing the D string broke near the bridge saddle. I was really dissapointed at this but I did save my old roundwounds so now I have 3 flatwound strings and one roundwounds string on my bass. It very well might have just been a defective string. Still though these strings have great tone and clarity, just as you would expect from Ernie Ball strings.

Believe the hype....

Comments about Ernie Ball 2812 Regular Slinky Flatwound Bass Strings:

I just put a set of these Cobalt Flats on my SBMM SUB Ray 4 and I'm really liking them. I'm using the 2812 set which is the same gauge (50-105) as the 2832 Nickel Slinky Roundwounds I've been using for the last 3 years, and the brightness is very much the same. It's nice when a new product lives up to the hype! The tone is more balanced and MUCH quieter, as one might expect- the punch and clarity is superb. My only concern is longevity, as the Cobalt Flats are significantly more expensive than the 2832 Nickel Slinky Roundwounds. I only play in the studio- not on the road, so I get 3-4 months out of a set of Regular Slinkys. I'm hoping to get 6-8 months out of these Cobalts to justify the extra expense! Anyway, so far so good!
