Hello fellow bassist have anybody tried the new FLEA Bass boomers?
Flea finally has his own GHS Bass boomers eh? about time, hes been using them forever.
send me a link to where you read about this please
for the record, i like GHS Boomers.. just wish they sounded a little fatter.
I saw them on the new Bass player magazine.
yeah i saw an add for them in bass guitar magazine. im also verrrry curious to see what others think as well.
GHS doesn't even have them on their site yet. Are they on shelves?
havnt seen a thing anywhere and cant find anything about there existance online
Here is what the ad in Bass Guitar mag says word for word:
Awesome bass tone starts with awesome bass strings. Now you can choose the same strings as FLEA in the GHS Boomers Limited Edition Signature Set. Using nickel plated steel over hex core with nickel and stainless steel underwind, the Flea Signature Set is the classic formula that he has relied on over the years. Tried and true. Rock bottom solid and available at your GHS dealer today.
if they are the same formula he has relied on for years, i would assume they are the same as normal nickel ghs bass boomers 45-105.. right?
they are pretty good strings, dont seem to break, stay fairly brite for a long time, good tension, and probably the most readily available string anywhere... but after using slowounds, i dont think i could go back to boomers.
Not too sure, since they're using nickel plated steel over hex core with nickel and stainless steel underwind. I'm pretty sure regular boomers don't have steel in them, and I imagine the steel underwinding would make them brighter.
In that case, may be worth me taking a second look at boomers...I liked GHS, but I like stainless better.
Are those going to be flexible at ALL? Hex core, underwinding with steel, and 105-45. Seems like you'd be playing on rods of metal, rather than strings.
Sounds like La Bella Slappers, without the tapered construction.
Have emailed GHS sales for details but have yet to get a response. The holidays, I suppose.....
Actually, I did get a response two days ago.
The Flea signature strings should be available after NAMM (Winter NAMM ends January 18th). The gauge is 45 65 85 105. Don't have any more info at this time.
Sorry to pop in late. But I was told they are the same as a Medium set of Boomers, and they are available for shipment. I was also told I would be bringing a set home from NAMM
Seeing how NAMM is over and I see these Flea strings at a few online dealers now, I wanted to bump this tread to see if anyone has tried these strings yet.
If anyone has infact tried them, how do they compare to regular nickel ghs boomers 45-105's? feel the same? sound the same? collect hand-gunk as quickly? Cost twice as much but seem identical?
So, I did in fact bring a set home, and they are just Boomers. They sound, feel, play the same as Boomers. Which is a good thing, IMO, since I am a loyal follower of the Boomer
