ernie ball

i prefer the nickel wound. but i've been using ernie ball for years and i like them alot. actually the crisp sound of these strings is a bit much at first but after playing on them for about a week they sound perfect. that's just my opinion. you can boil them in hot water and regain the clarity of the strings but that doesn't last long. maybe a few days especially if your playing all the time. like you are. also strings are relatively expensive so going through a set every week could get costly. make sure you wipe them down after every rehearsal particularly if you sweat alot while you play. the salt in the sweat will cause them to "become dead" quicker.
