Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Strings, Ultimate "bang for your buck""
Sound: Delivers an excellent growl to my otherwise extremely clear bass sound. This is probably the biggest reason I use these strings. Low end has just enough growl and no mud whatsoever. I love these guys. Feature: They are strings. They have great tone and in my experience, rarely break. I play pop/slap 50% of the time I play, and I haven't had a problem yet. Ease of Use: Once again, they are strings. Quality: Long lasting, geat tone. I use GHS fast fret on them as well, to keep them sounding fresh. Value: Best bang for your buck. Manufacturer Support: Never dealt with GHS, haven't had a need to. Overall: I love these strings, I use them exclusively, and they haven't failed me yet.
Style of Music: Funk, Pop and Slap, Alternative Rock, Jazz

GHS Bass Boomers Strings Customer Review
Sound: Well, from the E, A, and D strings, they sound pretty good... Feature: Just strings. >.> Ease of Use: This is my biggest complaint about these strings... I've bought three packs of these strings, and each time, the G string has broken upon it's initial stringing... I've never even plucked a GHS Boomer G string as of today... Quality: G string sucks... Value: If you need a E, A, and D string, I'd say go for it... But if you're a pop/slap type of player... Don't count on your G lasting you very long... Overall: Just... The G string... If it didn't break constantly, this would probably be a good product...

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
