    I bought the EB bass slinkies (100-80-65-45) and they're great...they stay in tune well and are brighter than a 200 watt light bulb. I bought some EB Flats on Saturday and they're doing a great job as well.
     
  3. i use regulars and i like um. not to thick, not to light, regular strings, just feal right. HAHAHA that rhymed....oh brother.
     
  4. Agreed!
    They have a great sound that you just don't get from those plastic ones. But if anyone does use the plastic ones I suggest orange.
     
  5. i have been using supers as of yet, but i also like the sound of hybrid strings.
