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.

    I have tried a lot of different strings, but ghs has more of a sparkle quality to it. I like some D'addarios, but I usually purchase ghs strings. They both make great products.

              I've been playing for 40 years. I've tried nearly every string out there, and I always come back to GHS. D,Addario is ok, but for the money, they go flat far too quickly. The higher priced, gimmicky strings have not one quality to justify the price. Boomers are consistent and last a good long time. The quality for the money is the best in the industry.

                I've been playing for a couple years now and I like GHS strings probably the best. They don't rust and keep in tune for a long time. I like the David Gimour GHS strings as well.

                  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.
