    Comments about GHS Progressives Electric Guitar Strings Light:

    I've been experimenting with electric guitar strings for the past few weeks. Tried GHS Progressives on my Jackson Soloist and couldn't believe the tonal nirvana! These strings are like GHS Boomers, but improved in some areas. The tone is much stronger than GHS Boomers and I had to turn the volume down at my amplifier! Out of all the brands and gauges I've tried out, the Progressives were the only set to force me to turn down and stay there!

    There's a brilliance from these strings that sounds fantastic. Some players can cringe when they hear the word 'brightness', but here is where that word makes all of the sense in the world. Has to be heard to be believed.

    There's also a Pro factor here in that the strings stand up to abuse and feel durable. They feel pretty smooth and offer the right tension for such a powerful, but not overbearing string. The Pros like to stay in tune and these Progressives seem to be some of the best at staying in tune.

    Finally, these strings reward experienced players. You've never heard your playing at it's best until you've played on some Progressives.

    The price of this set of strings is a touch steep (when compared to say D'Addario XL's and GHS Boomers), but you are getting a string that delivers on a promise.

    These strings need more players to play them and more reviews because they are so awesome. Plus, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth who is a legendary riffer and soloist plays Progressives and his modern-day sounds are noticeably more in-your-face.

    Over 10 years of buying only these!

    By Tomas

    Comments about GHS Progressives Electric Guitar Strings Light:

    There's nothing that I don't like about them. Buy them and see for yourself
    Like I said in the title, I'm using them over 10 years and even if I try something else, I always went back to Progressives. For couple of years I was using the DM signature set, but I came back to standard .10 - .46 set as it was harder to keep my tunning right due to my low tunning (2,5 tones down on some strings) and my Danelectro DC59 feels better with the standard set. I recommend these strings for everyone.
    During all therese years I don't remember any problem at all. They never let me down
    Affordable strings that sound great, last long and they keep their sound. What else do you want?

    GHS PRL Progressive electric guitar strings (10-46)

    By brent stewart

    from oakland,ca

    Comments about GHS Progressives Electric Guitar Strings Light:

    Once again, consistently high quality strings, great tone and durability.
    Now if I could only get a GHS endorsement....
    Give them a shot, you'll probably like them!
    I have been using Progressives ever since a guitar tech friend recommended them years ago.
    I really like the feel of the alloy, the tone, and how they last a long time.
    These are the regular, 10-46 gauge.
    I have never had an issue with the countless sets I've used. GHS makes a high
    quality, consistent product.
    What can I say, I use them and love 'em. I always suggest to friends
    that they check them out. Easily comparable price to most quality strings.
