These are the first pair of GHS strings I have ever purchased, and they are great. These are very bright and have really good tone. I highly recommend these if you tune down. I have these tuned to B,E,A,D at the moment and they are not floppy at all.

I recently bought these, and while I do think they have bright, booming tone, I believe I may have gotten a dud in the mix. I've got about 2-3 hours on them, and while the rest of the strings still sound very bright and full, the .115 is now dull and dead. Unplugged, it is barely audible, and plugged in, it doesn't keep up at all with the rest of the strings.

I don't think these are bad strings, though. And all the good reviews seem to suggest I just got a bad set. The tapered ends and the wraps around them make them much easier to string, especially on smaller tuning pegs. Would buy again if I could be guaranteed better QC.

        Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

        I wanted to switch from Rotosound strings for a little while. Theyre too twangy and didnt have enough punch. Theyre good for classic rock and funk but not so great for metalcore and deathcore. These strings solved this problem. It's very deep and powerful. I like having a lot of bass and these strings are perfect. For my band I play in Drop C and B with everything else a step down but I can tell already that i could easily tune these to like drop G# or G if I wanted to. Overall these strings have SO MUCH BEEF!!

        They Bring Music to Life

        Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

        These strings are heavy and hefty, but they just don?t merely thump. They have a great bright tone, with brilliant resonate highs, and of course loping thunderous lows. The red coating at the tips of the strings helps to eliminate tuning issues due to slippage at the tuning machines. They really augment the tone in a rig and have great sustain and are rather bendable for being so thick. They sound great regardless if you pluck, pick, or slap.

        Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

        There is a reason that so many bass gods use these. I have used so many different brand and gauge strings searching for my sound and these are it. No other brand can give me the low end punch that a heavy metal bassist needs without losing a bunch of top end. These deliver. Up until I bought these, I assumed i was going to have to settle for less. I was wrong and I'll never use another type of bass string again.

        Would NOT Buy Again

        By Aly Gallo

        from California

        Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

        I play in C, and I thought it was nice at first not having to buy a 5 string set and throw away the extra string. But after a week or so I noticed my tone was TERRIBLE. They boom alright. There is little to no definition of key on the entire C string. It's all sound, no tone. These are the worst sounding strings I have played to date. I plan on buying the DR DDT strings asap as a replacement.

        Didn't Last As Long

        Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

        These strings sound really good, but they don't last long at all. This was the first set I used, and might be the last. They cost as much as Ernie Balls, and the Ernie Balls last longer. But make no mistake, these do sound good. I could make it sound like I was using a pick while playing with my fingers. But unless you like changing your strings every 4 months or so, they are for you. PS: Pick players shouldn't get them. They don't sound good with a pick.

        Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

        I like these bass strings. My bass went from sounded flat on slap and pop playing to sounding a little more funky. These strings have a very nice bright tone.

        I've been playing these for years now, and they've never failed me once. Very bright and thumpy. Will make any bass sound good. And they last for 3-4 months unless you're a string changing nazi. I play in D G C F and it feels the same as standard.
