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

    I've used Boomers for many years....I like their tone and quality. These half gauged strings are great when 9's are too "bendy" and 10's give a little too much resistance. I put 'em on a Tele for blues with a lot of bending....(but with a little "fight" in them).

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

      Our band finally decided to tune down 1/2 step for vocals. Regular 9's felt like rubber bands, put a set of these on and it was much better...plus when I want to tune regular, it's not a major issue...

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

        These are standard, well made guitar strings. There is definitely a difference in feel and have the pros of both 9s (easy to bend/light) and 10s (slightly thicker tone and won't break easily. Not as flimsy as 9s)

        I've played around with pretty much every gauge of strings and these are my new favorites (and possibly the ones that i'll actually stick with ;))

        If you are juggling between 9s and 10s and can't find a happy medium, definitely check these out.

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

        I am a retired full time professional musician (TV, Recording, Concerts, Shows, Clubs) and GHS Boomers were all I used for 40 years. I am now only into recoding and weekend gigs. I've used various gauges over those 40 years for specific needs and I was never disappointed. I've used them on various Gibson's, Fender's and PRS's. I buy them by the box to make sure I never run out.

        GB91/2 Boomers

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

        My new permanent string set for my Stratocaster. I'm getting older and don't play as much, and 10's were getting harder to manage. 9's just don't sound as full, and with these you get a lttle bit more girth, especially with the wound strings. Perfect combination of flexibilty and tone as far as I'm concerned. The gauges are .0095, .0115, .016, .024, .034, and .044. I hope GHS continues to make them for a long time.
        Well made string.

        Awesome Strings

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

        Having a heavy right-hand attack, I started using the 9.5's as a way to reduce string breakage. They never let me down in that area...but the added benefit is a fuller sound than 9's, and much easier on the left-hand fingers than 10's. GHS tone is consistent from pack to pack. Can't live without 'em!

        Bending with tone

        By grangela

        from Sacramento

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

        Great gauge- big difference from 9's especially when playing full 6 string chords. And you can still pull with pleasure...The GHS wound strings are brighter and hotter than the D'Addario of the same gauge set- I've tried them both.

        A gimmick

        By TheTruth

        from East Haven, CT

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

        You can't noticed a difference from 9's. Still good strings, but worthless making it 9.5. Even on an Ernie Ball Petrucci model through a Road King, I couldnt notice the difference. Just stick to 9's if your guitar is set up for them and 10s if they're set up that way

        Perfect size strings

        By Vector Artist

        from Goffstown, NH

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

        9.5 sounds better than 9s but doesn't kill the fingers like 10s.

        Just right

        By Reverse Snob

        from West-central Wisconsin

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

        9s too thin and lame? 10s too heavy? This is the perfect compromise. They're playable, but they sound a bit more full than 9's.
