    Has anyone tried or uses these Strings.Does EBS make them on site or do they have them made by one of the big String companies.What are they like compared to other Strings like DR and Rotosound.I would love to try them or find out what they are like?

    I have used the EBS Northern Lights on my Modulus Q5. They sound similar to DR's but are much smoother to the touch. Unfortunatly the store that carried them quit ordering them and I had to switch brands. I highly recomend them. As far as who manufactures them, I do not know.

    I used the stainless-steel EBS Northern Lights strings for a couple of years until my local dealer quit carrying them. I live in the States and as far as I can tell, they're next to impossible to get here now. I'd love to know of a local (or at least domestic) distributor, because I loved them when I had access to them -- nice tension, great tone, great harmonics and exceptional longevity.

    I've played DR Lo-Riders since, and I really like them as well, but I've been pining for the EBS strings.
