Average String

Comments I went through a phase where I was using GHS Strings quite often. Not sure why really, but my choice was always the "Boomers." The Extra Light Boomers set, gauged .09-.042 set offers nothing particularly outstanding. The tone is pretty standard, tension is good, feel is good.

They are cheap, easy to find and seem to last for a decent amount of time. I did not find them particularly weak, breakage wasn't an issue at all.

They reminded me a lot of the Ernie Ball Slinky sets for the most part, in that they were very bright sounding while new, but sounded a little less harsh after they were worn in for a bit.

These are great for an average string set.


Liked about it Cheap, easy to find in stores, lasted a good while. Seemed relatively strong, and have a nice feel/tension.


Didn't like Quite bright when new.

These used to be my stings of choice.

Comments From 1983 through 1992, these GHS Boomers were my favorite strings. I'll admit that I was a victim of commerciality--George Lynch got me hooked on these! After reading an interview with him in 1983, I immediately tried them out. They are good strings! I used the .009-.042 sets.


Liked about it The GHS Boomers are decent strings. They sound nice and bright. With normal play and storage, these strings didn't seem to corrode as quickly as other brands. The price is on par with the other brands. They felt pretty smooth, almost like there was a slippery coating on them--but there wasn't.


Didn't like These strings seemed to break more often than other brands I've used--the main reason I switched. There is nothing majorly wrong with GHS strings, I just founds another brand that I like better.
