    Maybe try the Rotosound RS-55 "Solo Bass" they're "compression wound" and have a very smooth feel, plus they last and last...They come in the green package and in various guages.

    Good Luck
  3. How about the GHS Pressurewounds? Do they last a long time?

    Try Elixir NanoWebs. They are a bit $$ though. :)

    I use boomers on my P basses, and recently tried a set of B52s - and ended up taking them right back off... The B52s WERE significantly brighter than standard Boomers, but I lost too much bottom end with them, and a significant amount of volume as well... Think I'll just stick to Boomers - I like a bright, punchy tone with LOTS of bottom end, and for the most part, Boomers have provided me with that... I end up getting between 2 to 3 months out of a set, before I lose tonal quality - of course, YMMV...
