Ernie Ball Slinky bass strings featuring an enamel coating that prevents decay, increases the life of the strings, and offers a slightly warmer sound than non-coated strings.
The Ernie Ball Super Slinky Coated Bass Strings offer extended life and great playability. An ultra-thin layer of Ernie Ball's exclusive enamel coating protects the replacement bass strings and preserves their bright sound, while retaining the natural feel of uncoated strings.
This micro-thin layer of exclusive enamel coating prevents decay and corrosion up to five times longer than an uncoated set of bass strings. Ed Friedland, 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, these coated bass strings will give you that sound straight out of the pack."
Get the enhanced sound of bass strings that last five times longer than uncoated strings. Grab a bunch and save!

I haven't used them yet, going to wait until I wear out the Dean Markley Blue Steel that are on my bass now.I gave them a 10 for the price and the cool looking package, best I can do for now.
