Unexpected surprise. featured

Comments As a LONG time D'Addario 9-42 user I found myself needing a new set immediately (I living in remote Western Australia) and I didn't have time for my usual supplier to send me some as it could take upwards of a week to arrive. Anyway the local record store carried a very limited supply of guitar strings, guess what they were!
I have now had several sets of these strings and I have pretty much converted to them


Liked about it Feel. They are easy to play and I find them great to play.
Durability. They last for ages. Even with plenty of trem abuse!
Humidity resistance. I live in the tropical Top End of Australia where 90 % humidty is the norm for 5-6 months of the year and I have not had any rust or corrosion issues at all.


Didn't like Actually very happy with these strings, but not so flash for detuning lower than Eb.

Best Overall Sound!

Comments I've tried other string manufacturers and I keep coming back to GHS. To me they sound the best, have the best overall sound. Others that I've tried also sound good, but seemed flat sounding in areas. GHS doesn't sound that way to me. The Boomers have been around since I started playing back in the late 80's, and it doesn't matter what music style you play. These Boomers will sound at home with any style. They're obviously doing something right because the exact same string can be bought today.


Liked about it Great overall sound and can be played with any music style.


Didn't like Some people might not like the way GHS packages the 3-packs. They group all strings that are the same into one paper envelope, so there's 6 envelopes total in the package. That usually requires you to pull them all out, grab the one you want, wrap up the other two and put them back in the envelope. However if you buy just one set of strings, you have one string per envelope. GHS is obviously trying to save use guitarists a little money in their packaging costs. It's a small convenience that might make the difference for some people.

Pretty good strings for the $

Comments I've used 3 different brands of electric strings: EB, GHS, and Dean Markley Blue Steel (in that order). The GHS sounded a bit better to me than the EB's, but lasted maybe a hair shorter in terms of it's original 'brand new string' sound. What made me sick of EB and GHS was the life of these. So, I gave the Dean Markley a try and woah they are 3x as better. The DM's sound just as good from hour 1 of play as 15-20 hours later sound, which is pretty long to me. Anyways, the BHS are not bad at all, especially for the price, but i've found that if i shell out a few more bucks per set, the DM's do a lot better to me.


Liked about it Price
Sounds a little better than EB to my ears


Didn't like The life of the strings

Best sounding strings I know!

Comments I'll use almost any string brand, but I definitely prefer GHS to any other string on a fixed bridge.


Liked about it Bright, clear tone. They stay clean for a long time and they have a very long life span. Takes at least a month for the high strings to go black and rusty.


Didn't like It can be hard to find the sets I prefer (custom light 9-46). Nothing else to complain about really.

GHS Boomers - Great tone, great lifespan, great pr

Comments I have been using various gauges of GHS Boomers since I started playing electric guitar (17 years now).

I moved to the 9-42 gauge on my standard tuned electrics a few years ago. I was using 10-52 Boomers, but they were too heavy for me as I have developed Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Whilst I noticed that the 9-42s were a little less full in tone compared to the 10-52s, they still had a great tone. Boomers are great for string bending, and once they are fully stretched they hold tune very well under extreme Floyd Rose use.


Liked about it Great tone
Great for use with floating bridges such as Floyd Roses.
Well priced.


Didn't like Nothing wrong at all for the price.
