GHS Strings Bass Boomers

GHS Strings released Bass Boomers® in 1975, and altered the course of rock and roll! Winding a nickel-plated steel cover over a hex core, Bass Boomers® have a distinct low-mid bump that is aggressive and bold. Equally suited for pick or fingerstyle, the special recipe of stainless and nickel-plate on the low E and B strings keep your sound defined and strong. Hear why millions consider Bass Boomers® as THE POWER STRING.

Why Should You Play Bass Boomers?

  • You're running from a rock gig to a studio session and need a versatile string
  • You enjoy a clear, articulate picked tone with plenty of low end
  • You're looking to bring a lot of low-mid punch to your bass tone

WARNING: These sets are optimized for BEAD tuning on a 4 string bass. Do NOT attempt to tune these sets up to standard EADG tuning.

Sure with these came in a length appropriate for the Ibanez MiKro bass.

Jonathan Moody

Hi Don, we don't make these in a scale length for the Ibanez MiKro. There hasn't been a demand for BEAD tuning on a short scale. 

Oscar Stern

Actually that would be rather interesting to have Short Scale BEAD Tuned Boomers & Flatwound Boomers too

Jonathan Moody

Hey Oscar, we do offer a short scale Low B in Bass Boomers, so players can put together a BEAD short scale set. It's just not available as a packaged option at this point.
