    I've been a GHS Pressurewound lover for a while but they're not offered in a five string set. I've got one on the way and don't really like roundwounds or flats. Any suggestions on something similar to the Pressurewounds maybe? Thanks in advance......

    try a set of Ernie ball flats they are very bright when you first put them on. and feel so so smooth. I like a lite set of flats 95-40. use a single for the B. 125 or 120. this is my opinion only!!!!!

    Ernie Ball flats are D'Addario Chromes in a different package.

    Elixirs have nice a smooth feeling, and a little easier on the fingers. I like the sound of them, and they are long-lasting.
