You can't go wrong with Boomers. They are bright but not harsh, and are consistent in manufacture, pack-to-pack. I've never been let down by these strings, for either my basses or my guitars. The red silk on these grips the machines well (and looks cool), and once they have been broken in they stay in tune. These strings are equally at home on a Precision or a Jazz. If you play a lot of mellow, upright-bass-style jazz, they might be a bit bright for you, but for 90% of what most people play, these strings deliver. If you are looking for good bass strings, and you are comparing lots of brands and don't really know which ones to get, try these. I've been playing guitar and bass for 25+ years and GHS Boomers are my favorite, by far.

Ever since I was offered this brand when buying strings at a music shop, I've found them to be the best bass strings I've ever used.
They have an extremely bright sound that resonates strongly and lasts a bit longer than others. If you play metal or punk rock, you're
going to love how strong the sound is. If you play funk or do anything with slap bass as well, these will be an absolute godsend - they
are the best strings I've ever used for slapping and popping.

Of course, these are round-wounds. Round-wound strings are bright in general, so if you're looking for a more mellow tone or you don't want to build up the callouses to play these strings, you're going to want flat-wound strings instead.

When I first put on these strings, I fell in love with the sound I got from them. They were extremely bright and sounded awesome when slapping. The strings sound even more awesome on a jazz bass with both pickups on. however, after a few weeks, the G string snapped a few minutes after I came home from a gig. A few months ago, I used the Flea signature bass boomer set, and the same string snapped after a few weeks. (The Flea signature set did outlast the regular set by a few days, btw.) Personally, I recommend Rotosound 66 swing bass strings, because they are a tad bit brighter, and last a lot longer

Okay, so you have to change these a bit more frequently than other strings, that's why they cost less for a similar sound. The plus side is that you can boil these strings like any other to extend life out of them.

Good, but not the best in this price range. One would be better served buying D'Addario nickel wound XL strings as they play just as well (Better in my opinion) and cost less (2 packs available for a small amount more than a 1 pack of Boomers). String preference is relative and I can see why so many people do like these strings. I have had mine on for a month and only the "E" string has begun to deaden.

They work well at first with an even and strong tone, but the E string eventually starts feeling flabby. Also, on string-through-body basses you may find yourself having to shave off some of the red silk on the headstock end so that there's only bare string in your nut slots.
