    Having just re-joined the five-string world, I'm looking for a B string that will bring me true happiness. :cool: Right now, I have some EB Slinkys on my bass, and the B is dying. Still useable, but not as bright as the others after less than two weeks. I hate that. :spit:

    Anyway, any and all recommendations would be appreciated, including your favorite coated strings. BTW, this is a 34" Tobias.

    I like the D'Addario XL in .130"... Had it on since December and am just beginning to feel the need to change... YMMV
