Anyone ever use GHS Boomer Bass Strings. I have the opportunity to buy a box of 6 for 50.00 (sealed). If you have used them can you comment on the tone. These are the roundwound medium guage 45's to 105's.
I appreciate any help you can offer.

never used them before, but when I bought my '69 J-bass several years ago it had a set of light gauge Boomers (.095) installed. When it came time to change strings, I went through several of the usual suspects but nothing worked nearly as well as the Boomers on that bass; that's what's back on there now.
I find them very balanced, with a lot of punch. The current set has been on there for six months and they still sound clear, lively, and in tune.

The bass player in my band swears by them for rock. I imagine they'll do for bass what they'll do for guitar - bright and punchy. They seem to stay that way for a while too.

That is mainly what I used for a whle 'til I came across FireWire Strings, I think GHS is making a good job for the money!
