Will probably stick with ernie ball.

Very dissapointing. New set. Actually 1st time I've tried these. 5th string unwound and broke while tuning before I even got to play.

Great Strings

By Fenderstratman29

from Bremerton, WA

Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

Great sound. Stay in tune, and just have that great feel. Used to use another brand until I tried this set and will continue using these strings. These are the type of strings that I have been looking for.

He Might write spacey tunes but ol David shore knows his strings

By Doghouse Riley, his ownself

from Little Rock, Arkansas

Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

I'd been lookin for a new set of gauges for my 339 and my Nitefly Mojo, heck for most all my electrics, when I stumbled (can ya stumble with a mouse?) over these here David Gilmour blues. The gauges looked just about perfect and I'd heard great things about Boomers but really never used em. So I ordered some and guess what? No, really guess what? They ARE just about perfect. Go get ya some. Tell em Doghouse sent ya. Woof.

Work well on my Strat

By Alberto Funaioli

from Midland, MI

Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

As a Dave Gilmour's fan, I am always trying to improve my technique and my guitar. I have been using GHS strings on my MIJ '62 Reissue Stratocaster for many years, but they were the "Custom Light" type (.009-.046). These new strings are still very playable and comfortable, and give my guitar a nice "punch" on the middle frequencies.

If you break a lot of strings because you bend a lot, try these.

By Alexander

from Portland, Oregon

Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

First off, these strings don't just have David's name on them and his face on the package, he actually uses these strings, AND for very good reason. I've been playing DG GHS Blue Strings for about 5 months now and I refuse to play anything else now. It takes longer than most strings to stretch these in, however, once you get them stretched in you can bend all day long, including MONSTER Gilmour bends because these stay in tune incredibly well. That's fine and dandy in itself, however these strings also have incredible tone and feel to them also. If you bend you're strings a lot, especially if you play a lot of Blues, I highly recommend trying these strings. Like me, I don't think you'll play anything else afterwards.

        By Sergio

        from Ocala, Florida

        Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

        Heavier low strings and lighter high strings really complement a 25" scale guitar. That's how Gilmour does 2 step bends. I'll use these for as long as they make them.

        Great string. I only wish they sold them at my guitar center in Moreno Valley ca . I had to order them.They literally only have 2-3 brands of stings there. Crazy seeming how the next town over has every kind ever made.

          The best strings!!

          By Eduardo Filho

          from Brazil

          Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

          I love Pink Floyd and solo members. My musical style influence is David Gilmour. He has the best guitars, the best tone, the best solos in my conception. When I bought these strings and put them on my guitar, I just LOVED. The tree first strings are smooth and soft and the tree latest are hard and grave. I don't use other strings pack. RISE AND SHINE

          By AARON BORGENS

          from Fort C, Colo

          Comments about GHS GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Blue Set Electric Guitar Strings:

          I have gone through many types of strings over the years but now use GHS strings exclusively. These David Gilmour "Blue set" strings I use on my G&L Legacy (strat type guitar). I love the tone and feel of these strings. They stay in tune very well, last forever and sound amazing. I gig regularly and most strings only lasted me one or two gigs at the most, these last more like a couple of months with daily practice and weekly gigs. These were made for a strat type guitar and I will never use anything else on my G&L. On my Les Paul I use GHS coated boomers 11-50. I am a GHS customer for life!
