Excellent Strings & Great Tone

By Randall Yeager

from United States

Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings brought me back to GHS. I used GHS for years, but switched to Fender strings, because especially on a Les Paul, Bullet Ends make string replacement easy as cake. Typical ball ends tend to get stuck, and in the event the string breaks, replacement can mean ramming something into your bridge and possibly damaging your guitar. If your string breaks with a Bullet End, it just falls out on its own. Despite the traditional ball ends, I love these strings. The 10.5 E-string was the real seller for me. I still have the playability of a 10, with a deeper tone like an 11. The 30, 40, 50 also provide a little more meat in your tone. I use to buy a seven-string set and build my own custom strings, but I think I'll stick with these from now on. Of course, I am a huge Gilmour fan, but that aside, these are just great sounding strings. Really, David rarely ever recorded with a Les Paul in the first place, so if you want that convented Gilmour tone, buy a Strat with classic pickups. These strings are ideal for anyone looking for a little "darker" or "meatier" tone. I can't say much about durability. However, I never had an issue with GHS before; Ernie Ball, on the other hand, seemed to always break. Fender makes great strings as well. I've used these for about a month now, and love 'em. I just wish GHS could somehow rip-off the Bullet End that Fender uses.
