    The proof is out there - check the soundclips at talkbass. I WAS skeptical at first, but the tone won me over.

    Somebody here should do a comparison between Cobalts and Slinkys!

    A second comparo-test was done between Cobalts and coated SS Elixirs. Not even close, Cobalts sounded ridiculously better, except if you prefer your tone to sound like there's a blanket over your...

    I think a $1200 offer is fair for both parties. After all, there is a big chunk of paint missing. I agree with the others, twelve Benjamins in you hand while talking to the GM should seal a deal.

    Buy it if you can get the price you want, then get some 0000 steel wool and sand down the rough edges so the chip doesn't spread. I'm in Duarte's camp on this one, buy it for the playability and...

    I'd worry less about finding experts and worry more about stores that simply don't respond AT ALL to inquiries about used gear. Yeah, yeah, a phone call might work better, but if e-mail inquiries...

    I'd love to see a head-to-head comparison with a standard Slinky set - same bass, same rig, same settings. I know you can't experience the feel this way, but I'd love the opportunity to hear the...

    100% related, lol, great price. I looked at the silver finish at basscentral, which is pretty nice, but the white like I've seen on the Big Als would make me click the checkout tab!
