    Default Wal-Mart Selling Boomers

    While at the local Wal-Mart recently, I noticed that they're selling GHS Boomers for $3.84 for a set (10-46). Jesus, just what the local music store needed

    That reminds me of a pick up truck I was behind recently. You know those rectangle stick-on mail box letters about 3 inches tall?..This guy in front of me had "WAL MART SUCKS" spelled out on his tail gate. It was pretty funny.

    What's even funnier is that the guy probably had to go to Wal-Mart to buy the letters

    Can't say it bothers me one bit that wal-mart has boomers. Now in case you break a string between the off hours of the music stores, you can go to Wal-Mart and get ya some to continue your rocking.

    What, are you an "Ernie Ball" Man?

    I've used both EB's and Boomers on my trem axe. But I've used D'Addario XL110 's for decades on my non trem axes...
