Ok, so Ive tried a ton of them....currently using GHS Pressurewounds and GHS Balanced Nickels. 

Loving both, but the Pressurewounds are really growing on me.... 

Whats your string of preference?

I'm using Rotosounds at the moment. I also like D'Addario Half Rounds.

Sometimes I"ll use Ernie Ball Super Slinkys in a pinch, because everyone sells them. They start off nice and bright but seem to go dead rather quickly. Good for last minute string changes before band auditions. 

I used to like DR Strings Hi Beams, but found I was getting packs with a dead string far too often.

I've been a big fan of D'Addario for years both on my bass and acoustic guitar.  I'm partial to the D'Addario NYXL myself.  I love the bright tone you get when they are new and even after being played for a while they get a more flatwound tone rather than completely dead.

I’ve still got a few sets of NYXL and EB Slinkys but over time, The overly bright sound of roundwound strings just didn’t sound right to me. I’m starting to really dig the nickel and half rounds.
