    If you are looking for an SRV tone this is the closest you will get as far as strings go. He used the ghs heavy boomers. So any SRV fanatics grab these and honor the greatest guitarist ever to live.

        Comments about GHS GBH Boomers Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

        I used 11's from D'Addario for years and I would break a string consistently for every show that I played. I do not know why I kept with D'Addario for so long. I figured I needed to have a heavier string gauge for durability and better tone. Searched around and came across these strings in the heavy gauge, and I could not be happier with them. These strings have great sustain, are durable, do not corrode as quickly as other brands I have used in my professional career playing music, and, despite their heaviness, are easy to play in standard tuning. Along with playing well with a pick and fingers, these strings also sound terrific when playing slide. You can get the same great tones out of these strings that Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks have with their lighter gauges, as well as channeling the fat tones that you hear from Duane Allman from the Fillmore East show. Great Garcia tones can come from these strings as well. Basically what I am saying is that you can still get those classic guitar sounds on these heavy strings without feeling like your losing tone or playing opportunities utilized by the players that inspire you who may use lighter string gauges. These strings also (as far as I know) have a round core instead of a hex core. I think that might be a reason why these strings have so much sustain, especially when you have some distortion or overdrive keeping them warm while playing lead. If you are on the fence about getting these, I recommend you give them a try just see how they work for you. They are no that expensive and its worth it to figure out what works for you as a player. Feeling confidence in the gear you use is so essential to being comfortable on stage. Buy a pack and see what happens. You might find yourself just what you've been looking for.

          Been playing 30 years. These strings are awesome, they feel great and have a wonderful, deep, harmonically rich tone. Very SRVish if you want them to be. GHS are my favorite strings. I like the Burnished Nickels too but I use these.

            Great strings. Durability is great. The tone is simply unmatched. I play mostly SRV stuff and these strings have gotten me closer to his tone than any other brand. I've tried D'Addario, Ernie Ball, Fender, and Kurt Mangan, and I just keep coming back to these. I'd recommend these to anyone that's playing SRV style blues or that wants a high-quality, durable string that delivers great tone package after package.
