By popular demand, the Ernie Ball Company will add two electric guitar string sets along with three new 5 string bass sets to its line of Slinky strings. The products will be officially introduced at the Winter NAMM '04 show in January and ready to ship at that time as well.

- Regular Slinky 5 provides the best well-balanced tone to modern 5 string bassists. The gauges are .45 .65 .80 .100 .130.
- Super Slinky 5 offers bassists tonal warmth with a smooth feel and fit. Super Slinky 5 will be the choice for many top bassists. Gauges are .40 .60 .75 .95 .125.
