    First of all I was going to wait for about a month of use before writing a review, but I have decided to do it now. I have been a firm user of Ernie Ball Regular Slinky's since I started playing 16 years ago, and regardless of the brands I have tried out since, I alway go back to the Slinky's. The Slinky's are good strings, but have a small window of tone quality before the tone rapidly wears out of them. The Slinky's have never broken on me either. I can see why they are good performance strings, but you would have to change your strings every performance. In my current state of playing guitar I perform weekly, but also practice a lot and record often, and don't usually justify getting any less than a month out of a set of strings. Gilmour has been a hero to me for some time, so I tried these strings, hoping to find the improvements in tone that I have been looking for. I was a little skeptical about changing my gauge settings from Regular Slinkys to these, but I have to say just after putting them on, they feel right, and sound way better than the Slinkys on a good day. Intonation hasn't been adjusted yet, but they still sustain great and ring very clean. The slightly thicker bottom end reduced fret buzz as well. I am going on other reviews as to the longevity of the strings and don't see why they wouldn't considering the difference already. These are perfect on a strat, Gilmour knows best.

    I have been using GHS strings for over 20 years and I never had a string break on me. I decided to try the David Gilmore stings because of the lighter gauge "G"sting size.

    When I re-string my guitars, I always stretch my new stings, then tune, then stretch again, retune, stretch and retune until they are stretched enough to stay in tune.

    During my installation of the new David Gilmore Strings, the high E string broke during the first stretch. (And I wasn't even tugging on it that hard). That was the first time that has ever happened....I am sticking with the traditional GHS strings, the DGF strings are clearly inferior and not made as well.

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

            I usually use .10s on the Hendrix guitars and drop tune to Eb. I was interested in these strings because they are somewhere between light and heavy guages and could also use them for standard pitch (E). When I changed over I had to reset the action, re-intonate (expected) and re-set floating tremo block (surprising). At first these strings seemed unbalanced, but once that was done, the strings were great. This set has a heavier 1st string and (way) heavier 6th string, and lighter middle strings. Perfect for tone and 1-1/2 bends. Now you seen how David Gilmour does it!

              This is the (BLUE) gauge I've sworn by since they were first offered. In service on all my Gibsons since I tune down a half-step. Try them; you'll like them!

                  These are without a doubt, the very best strings I have ever used. Great sound, feel, long lasting and stay in tune. The string diameter ratio is the best for Rock-n-roll or blues playing. I will continue buying these for life.

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

                    First off, I didn't buy these because of Mr. Gilmour. In fact, I typically use EBs, Fender, or D'adarrio and have had good experience with all of them. I've bounced around trying to find the best tone and gauges for my style (alt. country, blues, roots rock). I mostly play Telecasters and don't like the tone from an unwound 17 or above on the g string, but I like have 48-50 on the low E. I was always switching out individual strings to find the best gauges for me. The Gilmour strings are just right for me straight out of the box, but best of all, they seem really strong, keep the snappy tone, and stay in tune. Oh yeah, they're in the right price range. Definitely worth a shot.

                      Bought these strings because of the endorsement from David G. He is definitely one of my favoirite guitarists, with great sound, that cant be beat. These strings were great, used them in a concert, sounded great no problems, will buy them again
