Awesome Strings

By walshtwalsh

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!

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.

Just right

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.

    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.

    Perfect size strings

    By Vector Artist

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

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

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

    I have used different strings and nothing sounds better for metal than boomers. They don't last long but great tone if you have a tremolo bridge. great for metal brings out the mids for old school metal. perfect for E flat if don't like high tension.

      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...

      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.

          Perfect size between 9's and 10's. Can bend strings with less deflection of trem-bar.

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

          These strings really play well. I always thought that 9's were too light for me, and 10's to stiff. I found these and they give me the best of both worlds. They play great and last a while. I really like the feel!
