The Ernie Ball 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Electric Bass Strings are engineered to push the boundaries of bass tone and playability. Made from a proprietary blend of cobalt and steel, these round-wound strings provide an unparalleled level of power, richness and clarity. The cobalt alloy is highly magnetic, allowing for a stronger signal and enhanced pickup response. Players will experience beefed-up low end, focused mids, crisp highs and singing sustain.

Groundbreaking Cobalt Alloy for Optimal Output

At the heart of the 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Strings is a pioneering cobalt alloy formulation. Cobalt is an inherently magnetic material, enabling these strings to produce a hotter signal and fuller tone. The cobalt blend also provides a smooth, luxurious feel under the fingers, facilitating effortless slides, bends and vibrato. These strings make a bass truly come alive.

Thicker Gages for Thundering Lows

With gauges of .050, .070, .085 and .105, the 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Strings deliver earth-shaking low end. The heavier bottom strings produce deep, resonant bass tones that remain tight and defined. Low B and E strings ring out with tremendous body and clarity. For any bassist seeking to maximize low-frequency power and punch, these strings are the ideal choice.

Lasting Performance and Durability

In addition to their remarkable tone, the 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Strings provide lasting intonation and tuning stability. The cobalt alloy is highly resistant to corrosion and wear, enabling these strings to maintain tonal integrity over a long lifespan. Players can rely on consistent performance from gig to gig. For the ultimate combination of tone, feel and reliability, the 2732 Cobalt Regular Slinky Bass Strings are the new industry standard.
