Boomers are some of the best strings on the market for daily use. They hold a tune and are fast strings. Easy on the fingers and keep their tonal quality for an extra long time. I've had them on a guitar that was sitting for over a year and they still played awesome, and tuned right up.
I have always used Boomers on my Fender guitars over the past 30 years. They never disappoint. They start out extra bright when new and after a couple of weeks they warm up more to a beautiful tone, and last a long time. I use 10's because I do a lot of string bending, and I haven't broken one yet. The standard pick ups on Fender guitars just like Boomers. They have a great coating on them too.
The clear coating lasts forever and they hold a tune great too. I rarely have to retune aside from the normal tweak now and then from string bending. But they don't break and keep thier smoothness longer than others I have tried.
Boomers are always affordable and reasonably priced, even for the beginner.

good budget strings, but they dont stay in tune as good as high end strings, and the tone is a bit dull for my taste. the highs are decent, the mids are nice, but the low notes are dull. its fine for metal rythem chugging i suppose, but for lead you may be dissapointed when playing the bigger strings, especially past the 9th fret and it gets worse the higher you go. they are tough and last long, but whole step bending and beyond can sometimes require tuning tweaks, tremolo action worsens this problem. good buy for the price i suppose, but i would reccomend spending a little more and getting a lot more, like elixirs or d'addarios.

Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

I've always used a light guage string and my B and G string just couldn't cut the tone I wanted until I started using these strings , Now its RIGHT when I go up two notes and the sound I love even more than before , sure the guage is thicker ,but thats whats what my tone needed ,before I worried about a sour note ,now it rings loud ,sustain WOW I play a Fender and wonder why it took me so long to pick up a pack of these strings and try , I will be using these from now on, Hey give it a try for a few bucks and see , the low E string has the deep bass tone ,and the high e string is bright and sings like a bird if you like birds that is, Thanks GHS and musicians friend for letting us guys write reviews this is a big factor in selling anything.

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    This is my first set of GHS strings, and I am very pleased! Great quality & price. Most places I checked (locally) wanted two to three times the cost listed here for a set.

    PS: My reason for this choice is because these are the strings that Ben Kasica (former lead guitarist of Skillet) used for his drop D guitar lol.

    best ever

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've used these strings since I started playing. I've tried a few other brands but none have compared to the pop that these strings give. And in the three years I've been playing I've only broken 1 high E. How's that for quality?

    Best Strings Ever.

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    Once in a while, I fool myself into thinking that there has to be better strings with all the technological hype of some of these companies. False. No other brand of strings comes close to the Boomers. They last a very long time, have killer tone, and add volume by at least a few dB. I've started to buy these strings in bulk since there's nothing else on the market that can beat these things.

    Killer tone

    By M. Grozde

    from Birmingham, MI

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    What a surprise I had stringing up my Stratocaster with a set of GHS Boomers. I'm sort of a tone freak and I'm always looking for a way of tweaking my tone. The GHS Boomers produce a sweet well rounded sound and a bit of a mid range boost without harsh high frequency "ice pick" tone that some of the other famous brands can produce. Tone wise all five positions of the pickup selector switch are more usable than ever. They retain their tone after many hours of playing and seem to be very durable. I do a lot of string bending and tremolo, so far no complaints with tuning problems or string breakage. I wish I would have tried GHS years ago. SRV used them, I now use them, you should give them a try.

    The only strings for live playing!!

    By LifeAintFair-PO-6Y

    from Frisco, Texas

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've been playing live for close to 20 years and have played every brand string imaginable. Boomers are by-far the most reliable strings for gigging. I find them to be a little brighter than D'Addario and Ernie Balls, but they are way more durable. For recording, I use D'Addario XL's (just an overall better tone - in my opinon), but live, Boomers are the only way to go. If you're playing a fixed bridge, use whatever you want, cause if you break a string, you can typically recover, but if your playing any type of floating trem, you need the realiable durability that only Boomers will provide.

    Boomers

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I am accustomed to using the Zakk Wylde Boomers which are great strings(they are Boomers, after all) and nice and HEAVY. My friend got a set of D'Addario Lights and when I played his guitar, naturally, the difference in gauges felt weird and I had a bit of trouble playing. I broke a string and was in need of a quick set to hold me over until I could get more ZWGB's and I got these. It took a small bit of getting used to, but these just feel better than the D'Addarios did. And, as many others have said, very fun to play with GREAT pinch harmonics.

    Terrific tone and feel

    By Tollund Man

    from Detroit, MI

    Comments about GHS GBL Boomers Light 010 Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've used primarily D'Addarios XL for years and finally switched to these for the following reasons: (1) they break in fast and keep in tune even when brand new through tons of bending, (2) they sound better - more lively with a smidge less low end, but much richer mid and high tones where the guitar sound lives ,(3) the feel of these strings are terrific and (4) more sustain. To me it was a no brainer.
