    After getting the GC email about them, I watched the promo video. In 3+ minutes of talking about, NOT ONCE did they actually demonstrate what they sounded like.:eek:

    Way to go, marketing dept. Here's a tip. If you want to sell something that you claim has such a stronger, more resonant sound, PLAY THE DAMNED THINGS for us!:facepalm

    I agree with you. No examples of a regular EB string vs their new Cobalt strings. That's why I was wondering if anyone has tried them yet.

    I spoke with an Earnie Ball Rep yesterday and she said the first batch of their new Cobalt strings will be shipping in 2-3 weeks.

    I'd like to try them as I've never had cobalt strings before and there used to be a Marvel super-villain called the Cobalt Man.

    I've driven a few Chevy Cobalts as cheapo rental cars.

    There's a club in DC called Cobalt that I walked into once. But I quickly realized it wasn't my type of place. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

    I've slaughtered many a kobold in D&D.

    Do any of those count?
