Hey guys, I haven't been on the forums in a long time. I'm just getting back into bass playing for a band after about 2.5 years. The band I just got into plays in Drop-B tuning. Before I get the onslaught of "just tune to B-standard and intonate it", I already tune to B F# B E. I found a set of GHS Boomers at the guitar store my brother works at, I'm currently using the size of 50-115 (.50, .70, .95, .115) and I really like them. I was talking to one of the older guys that sets up guitars at the shop, and from what he was telling me, GHS dosen't do a 2nd pass on the strings after they are wound, so they are harder on the frets than normal since they are not as smooth. My question is this: Is there any truth to this? If so, is there another string company that makes a comparable size set, without having to go custom? I really like the spacing of the strings, and the tone they produce is okay. BTW, my current setup is basic: 1970 Fender P-bass, repro neck with frets, duncan basslines pickup, and an ampeg BA115 combo (1x15 w/horn).
