    A very comfortable, bright nickel string. Not too pricey either.

    Hi All,
    I recently picked up a set of these Hybrid Slinky's 45-105 and I've got to say, I really like them. I put them on my USA Peavey Cirrus 4 string which is a 35" scale. I was wondering if the tension would be uncomfortable given the extended scale but the strings feel great! Still quite flexible and very smooth under the fingers. The tone seems balanced. Bright with a slight boost in the hi-mids and good lows represented to my ears at least. This isn't my first foray into Slinkys. I used the Super Slinky 45-100 and the Extra Slinky 40-95 for years. They are just a nice feeling string. :) Again I was a little worried about the increased tension of a higher gauge set but I hardly noticed the difference between the Super Slinky and Hybrid Set.
    We have all read the stories of Slinkys losing their brightness quickly. I'm not gigging and I'm not playing under hot house lights and sweating on these so I can't comment how quickly they will fade but so far so good.
    I've included a clip of a set of new Super Slinkys on my Geddy Lee Jazz just for a reference. Please excuse my horrible playing!
    Thank you,
    Brent
