      I used to believe that strings were strings regardless of manufacturer. I've tried D'Addario, Ernie Ball, DR, Rotosound, Elixer and Dunlop before trying GHS Boomers. These are the first strings I've used that you can actually hear an audible difference in tone. They sound slightly brighter and have a tad more tension than any other strings that I've used in over a decade of playing. These babies tuned to D on my Ibanez S5470 are pure magic! Notes are more percussive and shredding up and down the neck has never sounded so good.

      I have over 40 years guitar experience primarily on acoustic and on these I have been using Elixir Nanoweb strings. However the Elixirs do not sound right for me on electric and hence I have been on a quest to find the right strings for my home built baby, an ash Tele with beautiful action.

      I tried Fender and these were rather nice but switched to Ernie Balls in my quest for a coated string. Bad idea! DAddarios were not quiet there as were Cleartone. I was about to give in and go to the Fenders again when my son presented me with this set of GHS strings as a birthday present. (The guy is a full time student with a part time job and the fact that he actually used some of his hard earned money to buy me a present instead of buying beer for himself was touching,)

      Best present ever! These strings snap and sparkle. I have bought a couple of additional sets and these are destined for the Strat and the Mike Kelly.
      Best elecric strings ever!
      As far as sound on a tele goes, these are the best I have tried
      Great price.

          I have seen many different kinds of
          strings and this product has what
          I was looking for sustained
          sound.
          I even decided to put some on my
          non electric guitar and it sounds
          good too this is a good choice.

              Comments about GHS GBCL Boomers Custom Light Electric Guitar Strings:

              I have been playing electric guitar since 1967. I've played numerous different brands of string since then but since I settled on Boomers I have never looked back. They sound better, for a longer period of time, and I have only had a set or two which hand a bad string in them. I have used hundreds of their string sets so, out of that, 2 or 3 bad strings is an incredible percentage.

                VHS Boomers are the one thing I don't have to worry about for a show. I've been using them foe thirty years. I can count on them. When I'm playing " Mr. Bojangles with Jerry Jeff, I want to sound good, and I don't want to break a string!

                    I have played these strings for years. As far as I am concerned you can't beat them. I play country and blues. They are very crisp and claer. Great respoonse and long life.

                    Comments about GHS GBCL Boomers Custom Light Electric Guitar Strings:

                    These are my favorite strings. Been using them for over 20 years. I've tried other materials and brands, but others just don't compare to the great durability and tone that I get with these. This particular gauge makes my guitar more versatile, as the low strings are thicker (like a set of 10's) and the high strings are thinner (like a set of 9's). Great balance for rhythm and lead.Currently trying out the 9 1/2's and later will try the 10's, but I would have no problem at all going back to these comfortable old friends.

                    I ALWAYS come back to the Boomers

                    Comments about GHS GBCL Boomers Custom Light Electric Guitar Strings:

                    After over 20 years live playing experience I've tried every brand of strings known to Western Science, and I ALWAYS come back to GHS Boomers. I prefer this gauge of strings for my style of playing, but regular lights work for me almost as well. They sound great, they're well made, and they're durable. They're also fairly inexpensive, so for me it's a no-brainer. GHS Boomers for life here!
