I use D'addario strings and was thinking of switching to Ernie Ball strings for my 5 string because my friend uses them on his 5 string and says that he likes the 110 guage string for the B string because its not as floppy as other brands B strings. But I have never used Ernie Balls before only GHS and D'Addario before settling on D'addarios. Do Ernie Balls last a long time or good dead soon after putting them on? Do they have a good sound? What is you over all opinion of Ernie Ball strings?
