    Well, which Rotosounds are you talking about? If you're comparing nickel to nickel, the Roto's still take the cake. Honestly, GHS are fine for beginners, but I haven't liked them since I tried LaBella's and Roto's. Boomers tend to be rather loose feeling, and their tone fades especially quick for me. My Roto's and LaBella's stay fresh for months of heavy sweat and long practice sessions.
     
  3. The GHS Boomers are warmer sounding and the Rotosounds are much brighter sounding.
