Hi, I have been playing for about 2 years and have never really found a set of strings that I like a lot. I play rock and metal and use an ibanez Ergodyne 5 string. I also use a pick most of the time. Does anyone know how flats would work with a pick? Do flats feel a lot different from roundwounds? Also I have been using DR strings, but I can't afford to keep buying them at about $35- $40 a set, so something a little cheaper would be preferred. Thanks a lot!
