They were actually my first set of new strings...ever. I changed them after 5 months of using the factory strings...so this review will be biased. But they were amazingly rich, lows that were capable of being warm or punchy, the highs didn't sound too special, but they sounded great when popped. I play a Ibanez sr485bm 5, through a gk1001rb through an ashdown abm410. having played 2 other sets of strings after this set, I can say that these are what I prefer.

Long Scale?? Thats a huge overstatement...

I'm sure the strings are fine, but the fact is, they don't fit my bass. I like how they taper down at the end to make winding easier, but especially on the E and B strings, it starts way too early, making it unplayable on the open strings, and a buzz when its not open. I have had these strings for, well, a day, and I'm making a trip back out to the store soon. I have to say, I'm extremely disappointed...

      I have used Dean Markley Cryogenics, DR black beauties, Roto-sound 66s, Fenders, etc, but I keep coming back to the Boomers. I guess I like they way they play and start off bright like a piano.

      Switched from D'Addario and love them

      By Sean

      from Atlanta, GA

      Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

      I just put these on my Ibanez SR755 and I really enjoyed them. They had a very nice clear and snappy tone. I like having the E and B slightly heavier than what I am used to with the D'Addarios I usually get. The low B has a more musical tone to it. I am very happy with the purchase.

        I enjoy playing on them.The sound is great,I love them on my Fender 5-string Jazz Bass.I love their sound through My Fender BXR300 bass amp. They compliment the combination of all three. Try them, You will be surprised.

        Decent strings

        By Butcher-qHIZe

        from Chicago

        Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

        Boomers are decent strings for the money. Not the best, not the worst. They are readily available which is nice when you don't have a spare set already. Note: Long Scale is 34" for bass which is the standard scale.Short scale: 30" (kids basses)Medium scale: 32"Long scale: 34" (most common)Extra or Super Long Scale: 35" (many 5 & 6 string basses)Extended scale: 36-37" (boutique/custom build)Don't know your scale? Measure from fret side of the nut to 12th fret wire, then multiply by 2.

        better than d'addario

        By tyler davis

        from montgomery AL

        Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

        i bought these strings because of a metal bassist's (Andy trick) endorsement and they perform like it says, clear brilliant tone and so far they have held up very well. i play with a pick, and i like to have a good bit of harsh attack and i get that from these strings without them being to plucky. i had d'addario's before that, which came with my 5string guitar and they lasted a good while and sounded pretty good but i felt like the heavier strings were too flat bass. i love the way they taper at the end also the red ends look too good on my bass. i have a 34" scale bass and they reach the nut easily so i don't know what that other guys talking about the strings not reaching.

        Long Scale? Really??

        By bassplayer09

        from OKC, OK

        Comments about GHS 5-5M-DYB 5-string Bass Strings with Low-B:

        These are not long scale at all. I'm sure the strings are fine, but that doesn't help how I can't play on them. When I was puttig them on, it was fine until I got to the E and B strings. Then the red ends (where it tapers down to help winding)started too early, making a buzz on the E string, and not playable on the B string. I'm extremely disappointed...
