      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      Gilmore strings quality is consistent and seem to have a brighter physical appearance since they began using the foil packaging. These strings feel great under fingers and can withstand severe bends and don't break or go out of tune.

      Poor quality strings

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      Bought several sets of these and the other signature sets for my Fender strat. Unsealed package, a lot of rust on these strings and very rough on the fingers. They didn't last long and I was glad. Threw away what I had left.

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      These are the perfect gauge strings for a Gibson or Epiphone Les Paul. After I had bought 2 sets of other brand name stings I finally tried the David Gilmore Signature Series and cannot believe I didn't buy them first. If you own A Les Paul you need to rock these!! TRUST ME

      Preference

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      Sounds great. Good volume. I like the ballance of the gauges. Took a while to get used to it but it is my favorite now.
      I use these strings on my Les Paul shaped guitar made by luthier Daniel Carbone. I have tried numerous other string brands and gauge configurations and like this one the best.
      Don't last forever, but consistently last.

      I use silicon based oil at the bridge and nut plus mineral oil on the strings to extend the life of the strings.
      Great string. Great price here on MF

      The perfect set of strings...

      By paul czeresko

      from SC, USA

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      These strings meet a need that was previously unsatisfied, they are fairly priced, and they last a long time. I'm very impressed.
      I mean, there aren't many "features" a set of strings can have, but these do answer all the issues I was having with other sets. The Gilmour 10.5 strings are really solid-feeling on the bottom and playable on the top without feeling weak. They work well between standard and drop C. Any lower than than and they get a bit floppy, but what everything has limits.
      I've trusted GHS for many years now and these share the same quality as the rest of the range. They sound new for much longer than any other brand I've used.
      Considering I was previously mixing and matching, these are a steal. They aren't much more expensive than a regular set of boomers.

      The best-sounding strings i ever used

      By Alex Gumangan

      from Philippines

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      The strings sound good, especially if you placed the pickup selector switch on the 4th position on a clean channel, i can't describe it but it sounds awesome
      the only feature here is the fact that this is one of the 2 string sets that David used on his Black Strat and Les Paul Goldtop
      The quality's good, it looks like it can last for years before breaking. But that's just me
      The value isn't that bad for the price.

      Big sound.

      By piloto117

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      I was first very impressed with the way these strings sounded and felt. Used them for a les paul custom, and the sound is big, bright, detailed and musical; great indeed. The gauge is a little peculiar on this set, because of that slight thickness on the high E string, takes a little time to get used to, but it makes perfect sense for me, as it does make the balance in terms of volume a little bit better. Only downside is they didn't last too long and broke the b string within a month, a week later the high E broke too. For the price it can get pretty expensive if you use it year round.

      Excellent strings - typical GHS quality like the regular Boomers I've used for years. No big difference except the gauges from regular GHS sets. More money for DG's name is all.

      GHS can't be beat

      Comments about GHS GB-DGG David Gilmour Signature Red Set Electric Guitar Strings:

      Strings are really a matter of taste. For me GHS makes the best strings out there. I used to use GHS "Big Core" strings. Then they changed them to "Santana Signature Series" and raised the price but they were still worth the money. The David Gilmour sets are excellent strings. I play at least a couple hours every day, and they last quite a long time. GHS have always kept their tone longer for me than any other strings. The guages in the red set are excellent as well. I personally don't care for the guages in the blue set but that is just my taste.
