      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!

        Altho I change them often, they never let me down. Wonderful bright tone and even with my stretching they don't break too often. I will continue to use GHS and enjoy their consistant performance.

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

          Tried these because the 9's on my strat were too thin sounding, difference was night and day. Always liked Boomers for their (not too) bright tone and long life, also an easier transition to if you're used to using 10's.

            When my band started tuning down 1/2 step for vocals, 9's became too slinky...10's worked good but I found these and they're a nice go between...I can tune back up to standard tuning as needed and go back down 1/2 step without too much trouble adjusting to the resistance...

                These strings are bright and keep their tone even when bending a lot. Last fairly good but the price is good enough for the trade off. Great strings for the money.

                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.

                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).

                  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...
