I often buy Ernie Ball strings, I like them. But be warned, the top strings of this set feel pretty tight when compared with the lows, which can feel a bit slack and floppy. That's probably to be expected of a lot of brands, to be fair. Maybe you like that more than I do. Although, as someone who likes to play in tunings like D-standard and Drop-C, Unless you have a multiscale/fanned-fret bass I can't say these are perfect, for metal, in particular. TL;DR: I'd like the bottom strings to be a little more chunky, aside from that, they're great quality.
I'm new to the game of re-stringing guitars bass or otherwise. These are just epic strings, tone and feel just everything about them shows class. That and finding out that Joe Bonamassa uses Ernie Ball strings I know I will return if I need to re-string my 6 string.
