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 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!!

    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.

    I have noticed a change in quality

    By Ayl52

    from Washing D.C.

    Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

    Hey. I've been using GHS boomers heaveys for for at least 10-12 years. Things were great until.....they changed the style of packaging. then I noticed a change. Remember the packaging used to be red and now it's a black-foil type wrapper/envelope. Well, they are not as resilient as they used to be. Maybe they have contracted with a different material supplier. They are still probably one of the best strings for the money. I do gigs about 3 to 4 night a week and I change my strings onece a month.

    Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

    Very good-sounding strings. Excellent value.Can tune down easily with these.Only last a few months if played regularly.If not changed regularly, can seriously kill your tone. Still good,value priced strings.

    Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

    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.

    Perfect balance.

    By whitebolo

    from Little Rock, AR

    Comments about GHS H3045 Heavy Gauge Bass Boomers Bass Strings:

    GREAT for playing in tunings lower than standard. The heavy gauges provide a deep, warm tone in your lower register while providing a bright and punchy higher register. Not too bright, and not too flat. Perfect. I've NEVER broken a GHS string, either--in over a year's use.

    They Bring Music to Life

    By Blacksheep

    from Northeast Ohio

    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.

    Juicy

    By MetallicaFreak

    from Lakeland, FL

    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.
