    Terrible! Don't mess with these

    By awfrick

    Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I have used these strings two or three times, and each time I have been disappointed. One set broke, another died quickly...don't waste your time or money with these.

    Great set

    By onastrat

    Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I always seem to go back and forth between 10's and 9's- this set was right in between. Good feel that lasted a long time. Highly recommended.

    Excellent

    By Onastrat

    Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

    Great strings- I bounce back and forth between 10's and 9's- so this inbetween set was pretty cool to string up and play on. GHS strings are hard to break and last longer than most strings I have tried. I have played since 1975, so I have a few years of experience with string quality.

    Ultimate strings

    By ANTHONY BUCHERATI

    from New haven, Connecticut

    Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings are just awesome! The key is to use two (2) different sets of strings that are different brands and gauges. I won't give away my secret but it hasn't failed me yet and I have 3 CDs under my belt. But I will share this with you. Always was your hands before you play. You'll see a dramatic change in string life. Good luck! And never, ever stop playing.

    Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

    gives me a little more punch than .09 gauge stings. I find GHS to be flawless every time, I particularly like their .10 gauge acoustic strings for my Taylor 414 and 322.

      Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

      I have played on many string brands and types. I used Nanowebs for a year. Those are great for longevity but were lacking a tonal quality I couldn't quite nail down since I am green. They are less apt to bending in my experience also. So I was listening to David Gilmore one day and I was like that's it. What are those. He was using GHS strings. I love his bends he is a master in my book. I tried 10s and due to my arthritis they were slightly difficult to bend for me. I tried 9s but they didn't provide the feedback to fingers, it was like they were to mushy (I know really technical right). Then the Guitar Center person said have you tried 9 1/2s. They make those? Haha. Yup have two sets left more on the way. I took the two one for my strat and one for my tele. I can say that the tone was fantastic. The bends were easy and the feedback to my finger tips was spot on. I would recommend these to any who is looking for a sweet spot between 10s and 9s.

      good strings

      By velvetrevolver

      from California

      Comments about GHS Boomers GB9 1/2 Electric Guitar Strings:

      hey, these strings are awesome, i use them on my 1957 les paul and they sound great, one flaw is that they dont last very long, and they buzz because of how large they are, but overall, if you have a guitar that is built for rock, these are the strings to use
