Ernie Ball unveils Coated Slinky Bass Strings

Ernie Ball has announced the arrival of the new Coated Bass String line. The latest addition to the Slinky line of strings will be unveiled at this years summer NAMM Show, in Nashville, TN. These new patented sets will be available in all of your favorite Ernie Ball Slinky bass set gauges, and feature a micro-thin layer of an exclusive enamel coating that prevents decay and corrosion up to 5 times longer than an uncoated set of strings.

Ed Friedman, The Bass Whisperer, had a chance to take a sneak peak at a few of the new coated bass sets and had this to say. "The coated string sounds virtually identical to the non-coated, it's not until I move back to the bridge and dig in that you can hear the slightly warmer character. The string has the detailed mids and full bottom you want from nickel, and an upper midrange presence that will get you heard amidst thrashing guitars and crashing cymbals Bottom Line: If you already dig Ernie Ball Slinkys, you'll dig the coated version???and you'll dig them for longer. If you prefer the sound of nickel strings after they've broken in, the Coated Bass will give you that sound straight out of the pack."

Ernie Ball Coated Slinkys maintain the feel and sound of uncoated sets, combining the added protection with the vibrant tone Ernie Ball customers have relied on for over 5 decades! Contact your local retailer for more information.
