These are perhaps the greatest bass strings ever. I first tried these back when I first got my bass and the strings on it were like 10 years old. My dad was the one who first recommended them to me and I haven't used any other type of string since then. Although sometimes I use medium light instead of medium. These strings last many months and the only time I change them is 2 days before a show. Some people said they are to weak for slapping, but unless they're doing it wrong these are great. I love the sound you get after an hour or so of playing. You should always wait a day or so after changing strings to rate them because all string sound weak when you first get them. I love these strings.

I restrung my old SR500 with a set of these, and they were okay. I am VERY glad I had two sets though, the E-string on the first set popped during tune up, and I wasn't even close to tight. So I am knocking their quality because this simply should not happen during install of new strings. They sound WAY too bright for the first couple of hours play time. Just play these things, they even up after a few. Remember your first hour or so you are trying to get the string to settle in... After the first retune they sound great. Especially with my EMGs... Want to try out the DR Black Beauties next, but the GHS sound fine.

Greatest Strings EVER!!!

By The INC. Bassist

from Gallipolis, OH

Comments about GHS M3045 Bass Boomers Medium Electric Bass Strings:

These strings are by far the best ones I have ever used. I've tried loads of different strings and Boomers are now the only ones I will use. The tone you get from them is amazing and the feel on the fretboard is wonderful. I recommend these for any other bassist.

Great Product, Best strings I've ever used

Comments about GHS M3045 Bass Boomers Medium Electric Bass Strings:

The tone provided by these strings on my Jazz Bass w/ rosewood fingerboard is amazing. Many people may complain that these strings don't stay bright but that's just a matter of taste. These things mellow out nicely for use with any musical style, even more aggressive bass lines can get some real growl with these strings ... EVEN IF THEY DON'T SOUND LIKE TIN ... If you want a real bass sound that compliments the tone of your bass, these are the strings to use.I've run through countless brands of strings and this is the only reliable brand as far as string breakage is concerned.

        I used to use Ernie Balls strings and they would lose a lot of life after the first week of use. By the end of a two week tour, they're dead. These are quite better for how long they stay fresh and don't dull out.

            Well I bought these because I'd thought I had ordered piccolo bass strings (lol). Silly me. At any rate, I love GHS strings for my guitar, so I no doubt love 'em for my bass. Love the way these things sound. Give my old Squier II P-Bass a nice shiny sound (even for a P-Bass!).
