I have a 2012 Les Paul Traditional Pro that I absolutely love to play. I have tried various .10 gauge strings, such as Dunlop, D'Addario, and Ernie Ball, but for the most part I found myself settled in with the Gibson Bright Wires. Today I tried something new. I put on a set of Ernie Ball Slinky Cobalts 10-46 and wow! Wow is all I can say. These are amazing strings. They seem to contain a myriad of sounds and change according to what the right hand is doing (if strumming or picking with the right hand). My Les Paul sounds like a different guitar! I can still get all the sounds the Bright Wires give me but much more. The cobalt strings mellow things out a bit on the upper end but have their own unique chime. There's a rough edge to them but they could still pull off jazz. I even like the feel of the strings, they're slightly matt feeling. I think I've found my new standard issue. Anyone else have this experience with the Ernie Ball Cobalts?
