Ernie Ball

collapse expand iconDescription

These innovative strings are constructed from Ernie Ball's proprietary cobalt alloy to provide guitarists with unparalleled tone, power, and longevity. The cobalt material optimizes magnetic properties to produce high output, robust low end, articulate mids, and crisp highs when paired with standard electric guitar pickups. Guitarists will experience vastly improved sustain, harmonic complexity, and dynamic range.

Cobalt Construction Maximizes Sonic Potential

Ernie Ball's cobalt alloy is the most magnetically active string material available, enabling vastly stronger magnetic coupling with pickups. This results in higher signal transfer and a wider range of tones with greater definition. The cobalt strings' special blend of cobalt and iron allows for an ideal balance of flexibility and strength, reducing premature string breakage while facilitating comfortable playability.

Hybrid Gage Set Provides Balanced Tension and Tone

The 2715 Skinny Top Heavy Bottom set combines lighter gauges on the treble strings with heavier gauges on the bass strings to produce balanced tension and a wide spectrum of tones. The lighter treble strings allow for easier bending and soloing, while the heavier bass strings provide full, punchy low end. This combination suits guitarists seeking the benefits of both lighter and heavier string sets in one balanced hybrid gauge.
