    Guys who used EB Cobalts with your basses - have you really noticed some excessive fretwear after using them or is it just a suggestion due to their rough feel? I liked their clarity and powerful tone but this fret wear issue may be a deal stopper for the next set of them, so I'm now struggling with the decision. I'll appreciate your feedback on Cobalts.
    Thanks!

    can't say I have noticed any fretwear, really. Using them in my Stingray, which is my main bass, for about a year now.

    I was quite shocked at the fretwear I had on my Warwick after having Cobalts on it for about a month. Brass is softer though, but I've never seen little shards of brass left on my fretboard with any other string. Cobalts will eat your frets alive!
