Are These Cobalts or Regular Slinkys?

    Hello All,

    I don't remember if I put Ernie Ball Cobalts or regular Slinkys on my Jazz bass. I believe that they are Cobalts. I tried to do research to see if I could tell by their looks, but I was unable to find any visual differences. Any idea? Thanks! 9FPZUQfhS4qqyS5DCuCd%w. dlZKCK%ARUm7BfYg1HuZ7Q.

    I believe that the EB Cobalts on my 69 have red silks or maybe purple, one or the other. I put TI's on my 64 and one's red and the other purple.

    I think that those are the Cobalt flats, not the rounds. Thank you for the help though! I think these are Cobalts, I just can't tell.

    I'm sorry, the strings are those in the picture, with coloured balls? because those coloured balls are D'Addario's signature, not Ernie Ball of any kind.

    Don't Slinkys have the same brass ball ends and the exact same wrap? Yes, the material is different, but doesn't it look exactly the same?
