he uses ghs boomers... but i'm trying to find the perfect sound... i've played Ernie Ball slinkys ever since i started played 2 years ago. i fear that if i continue to only use EBs... i won't be able to find an original sound and i also fear messing up the amazing tuners on this bass. this may be a dumb question... but is there a term for the threaded ends on some strings? i want to use those type of strings so i don't wear away my tuners. do GHS strings have this? i know the slinkys do not... thanks in advance for all who help out.
