    i like this string so much, I thought I would take time to write a review. I put these on my EBMM Sterling 5H and yes! Welcome to complete satisfaction. I like nickel strings and these work perfectly. Not too rough or bright. Great, punchy tone and rich fullness. Highly recommended.

    After trying many strings, I rotate through 3 few brands of strings and these are my go-to strings. I generally pick up a pack or two of regular slinky strings for my 4 and 5 string basses and keep them in my gig bag as needed. My sweat is like battery acid on strings so I change them frequently, but there is nothing like the sound of a fresh set of EB Slinkys on a bass....

    Pros - Awesome tone, output, and last a long time.
    Best strings I've ever used and will most likely never change. The new Cobalt power slinkys are the best.

    I try many different strings, but usually come back to these. You can find them anywhere if you're touring - I've seen them at Target and Best Buy. That's a plus, because you know you'll be able to find them if you're on the road, but it comes down to tone. I love the tone and feel of these strings. Balanced tone across the strings, enough zing without being overly shrill and a G string that doesn't sound ganky. It's hard to beat Slinkys.
