Anybody tried the new DR Bootzillas?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by refinedbass, Mar 4, 2004.

  1. Has anybody out there checked out the new DR Bootzillas? What kind of tone they give, how long they last, etc?
  2. Tried them a couple of months ago... they sounded nice but I prefer the lowriders or better yer LaBella hard Rocking Steels... :bassist:

    They're actually up on Basstasters.com (or is it .net?), and Vanselus has a pretty good description of them with clips.

    I think they're great for thickening up your sound if that's what you need, but they're a little crunchy and midrangey for my tastes on the Smith. As Vanelus says, they're probably perfect for (fender, etc.) J players who play finger funk etc. Not real good for slapping, if you want a more modern tone.

    I think I'm going to put some hibeams on the Smith and see if they compliment the bass better.
