I've been thinking of trying these strings.. Right now I have some Ernie's on, and I've been pretty happy with them, but I want to experiment a little. I have just a few questions. How is the tension of these strings compared to Ernies? I play rock, funk, metal, punk, and sometimes jazz. Would thse strings be suited for these styles? What do the sound best with, Fingerstyle, pick or slapping? Any other comments you have about them? Thanks everyone!
