Ernie ball or branch out?
I have been using Ernie balls for about fourteen years on both my bass and my guitar. Tried D'Adario once they didn't last as long.
Ibanez higher end ones come with elixirs and I am liking them. I know Ernie ball is a love or hate brand but any recommendations?
Has anyone tried the new cobalt Ernie's just curious?
Rotosound Steve Harris Flats FTW.
I'm understandably biased. However, why not try something else? With guys like Jason at BSO offering excellent pricing and customer service (as well as a large catalog of bass strings), it can't hurt.
So, here are some quick recommendations:
-If you've been using nickel or nickel-plated, why not try stainless?
-If you're a rounds player, maybe give groundwound or flats a try.
-Try a lighter/heavier gauge to see/hear what that does for you
I branched out and liked what I tried they don't sell the brand I tried around here so I de-branched
Strings makes a huge difference on a bass and they are relatively cheap. I think you should definitely try a couple more sets. You can also sell lightly used strings that you happen not to like.
I like Slinkys and use them a lot, but I hate the Cobalts in both feel and tone. Some love them. Most of my 4 string basses end up with DR Lowriders or Sunbeams. If Guitar Center carried more DRs in 5 string, I'd probably use them on my 5 string basses.
www.bassstringsonline.com will change how you buy strings.
