This is a 3-set bundle of Ernie Ball COBALT 9-42 electric guitar strings

Cobalt is known as a transition metal and is a byproduct of nickel or copper production. It innately provides a greater magnetic response than nickel resulting in higher output and bigger, bolder, more-focused upper midrange.  Ernie Ball combines cobalt with iron to create the most magnetic alloy available in a set of guitar strings.

The feel of Cobalt is quite different to nickel. It has more of a textured, matte surface which offers a particularly playable grip under fingers; something that a lot of players are searching for.

When played clean these strings sound loud and bright with a sparkling top-end and phat presence, however when thrown into the mix with a bit of drive and a set of humbuckers the tone intensely full with pronounced midrange and raw-sound, edgy top. In fact, I’d go as far to say that these strings were created to riff!


"Ernie Ball Cobalt Strings sound and feel better than anything I've ever played! You have to check these out!"
- Slash 

"Cobalt Strings feel incredibly silky under my fingers and deliver more punch, output, and clarity than normal strings!"
- John Petrucci
