Beta tested by the crème de la crème
In the development of their Cobalt strings, Ernie Ball 2726 Electric Guitar Strings tapped select members of their star-studded artist roster – including Steve Morse, John Petrucci, Randy Jackson, Tony Levin, and Slash – to be beta testers for the new formulation. John Petrucci reported that the Cobalt’s sound “amazing,” with “increased power, incredible clarity, and incredible sonic balance.”
He noted that the Cobalt’s seem “softer” under your fretting fingers (the term he used was “buttery”). Slash noted that – before being plugged in – the Cobalt’s “have an entirely different feel than normal strings.”
He goes on to characterize this sensation as “bouncy and pliable,” and “a lot of fun for bending.” When amplified, Slash commented that the Cobalt’s were just as bright as titanium strings, but more “guttural,” with more “growl to them.”
Cobalt formula gives you higher output and better sound
A half-century ago, Ernie Ball practically invented “rock” guitar strings. And now, with Cobalt, they’ve re-invented them. After exhaustive testing of over 350 alloy combinations, the company ended up with an optimal formula that – as compared with conventional strings – gives you higher output, beefier lows with increased definition, improved midrange focus, shimmering harmonics, and more robust sustain. You get a brighter sound without inducing harshness by turning up the treble on your amp.
Cobalt’s last longer
Ernie Ball 2726 Electric Guitar Strings last longer, retaining their brightness long after other strings have given up the ghost. Steve Morse reported having a set on one of his guitars “for several weeks,” and with daily use – “sweaty hands” and all – the Cobalt’s “still sound bright… They just don’t have that dead sound,” he says. So, with higher output, better sound, and the monetary benefits of not having to change strings so often, Cobalt’s have it all over traditional alloy formulations.
