    I have used GHS Boomers for at least 30 years. During that time, on many occasions I have been talked into trying different brands ... Virtually all of them. I always come back to Boomers. Maybe I resist change. Maybe these strings really are superior. I buy them 10 sets at a time. And that's all I have to say about that. Play on!

    Worst purcahase I have made for strings. I don't know who makes these for GHS now, but they are horrible! My guitars had fret buzz, and the strings kept strething out of tune. By the time they stabilized out they sounded dead. This brand is fairly popular right now, and it makes money for me. I have to set up people's guitars with higher action so they can use these. I prefer budget ultra low price import strings to these. I have several sets for the shop, and I am using them for set ups only. They barely work for that. You cannot get the action as low with these. Light, extra light, medium, heavy, or whatever, these are terrible. I have been playing for over 40 years. I don't remember these being that bad, but now they are.

          I have used GHS strings since the 70's and used nothing other than GHS on my "72" Gibson Les Custom. Not saying I have had to put other strings on it when I have to, but always apologized to Baby for putting her through it. I get better, longer lasting performance with GHS then any other. They have been the best for me.

                  I have used these GHS Boomers for over 30 years. For the most part they are good. I have found some quality issues lately beginning in 2010 until present. I have had strings arrive with imperfections such as kinks, missing ball ends, and corrosion. If they could step up the quality, this would be my #1 string!

                      I've been using these strings a long time. Very reliable and great tone. I've tried all the other major brands. GHS are the best.

                      Comments about GHS Boomers Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

                      GHS strings never fail to be a great value. These strings last, hold their tuning, and are extra light for optimum bending. Each pack of strings is sealed air-tight which keeps them fresh when it is finally time to change.
