Ever since I got GHS Guitar Boomers with my Les Paul, I never switched strings. I got more addicted to these things than the other strings I used. These strings have that powerful performance that last over 2 months. I also loved that wicked tone they bring with and even without an amp. They can be used for any genre, like rock, metal, country, punk, blues etc. You should also notice the leisure with the tone, lasting, and performance that these things can shove in your face!

GHS boomers were some of the first strings I ever used. However, I have tried many types to find the strings that are best for me, and in my opinion GHS doesn't compare to companies like Ernie Ball, Dean Markley, and D'addario in terms of sound.The feel of these strings are average. There's nothing bad, but nothing really special about them either. They bend alright. I would recommend any of the strings I mentioned above over GHS boomers.

    Comments about GHS GBXL Boomers Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    I have tried almost every brand out there and nothing compares to ghs. There's a reason why Randy rhoads used these. They sound the best. I use all gauges ranging from 9's to 12's. Ghs are still the best

    Very acceptable for strats

    By Guitar-dood

    from Dekalb, IL

    Comments about GHS GBXL Boomers Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    They seem to work better with my strats, than with my humbucker-equipped guitars. The tone is outstanding on my strats. I'm VERY fussy about my sound, and really love the tone my strats put out with a new set of boomers on them.

    A Great Value

    Comments about GHS GBXL Boomers Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    .10
    Been using GHS GBXL Boomers for years. I switched to these many years ago after taking in a guitar to the store I purchased it from to have the action professionally set up. After getting my guitar back and playing it at home for awhile, I went back to the store to ask what strings the tech had installed because I really liked them. GHS Boomers .009-.042. In trying out two other gauges of GHS Boomers since, I find Boomers to be the best value for the money. My personal preference in gauge is .009-.042. Provided I wipe my GBXL's down with a bandana after each session, they retain flexibility and quality of tone for a good long time. As a comparison with at least one other brand, . While the initial tone and ring was superb, they didn't last anywhere near as long as GHS Boomers.

    Sweet strings

    Comments about GHS GBXL Boomers Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

    These are the best strings I have ever bought. Tone is awesome and they agree perfectly with my dual humbuckers. Easy to play and smoother so less wear and tear on your fingers if you slide alot. I have tried lots of strings and these are the best. My only gripe is I find myself playing guitar so much more that I wear the strings out in 1.5 months.

      Comments about GHS GBXL Boomers Extra Light Electric Guitar Strings:

      Used these strings since I started 33 years ago, have tried other brands but have removed them, threw them away and restrung with GHS. I prefer the .009-.042 set they sound the best to me. have used different sizes up and down but these are the ones I like the most. Last for a long time even when one of several guitar I have winds up sitting for a while without being played these still perform excellently after time.
