I've played daddarios, ernieball and a few other string brands out there and this is by far the best strings out there. daddarios are nice but they have a metallic feel/sound when they're brand new, but they last a long time. ernieball's feel great from the get-go but they're lifetime is short. The GHS Boomers are the best of both worlds in one. they feel great. the sound is superb and last for a long time before needing a change. Can't go wrong with GHS

The strings were very consistent and gave a nice bright sound; however, the feeling was not the best. The feeling was very sharp and not as rounded/semi rounded as many other brands feel. I purchased a 10 pack because of how outstanding the deal at Musician's Friend is...but I will probably opt to use other brands in the future. I do like that they come in their own personal sealed packs within the case/box.

I would recommend this product to another friend because of the nice deal.

          Comments about GHS Boomers Light Roundwound Electric Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

          I gig about 50 times per year and change strings before EVERY show. Not looking for high cost strings that last forever, just one show. Certainly Boomers last as long as any string in their price range if put to the test. Boomers are the best feeling, sounding and performing string for me. Haven't busted a string in 15 years. Have been buying them by the case for a long time and have no plans to stop. Constantly playing different guitars, amp& pedals, but my string choice is consistent.

              After so many years of playing guitar and trying diff brands,I settled with Ernie ball strings but the tone of their 4th to 6th strings died in a couple of days.recently i needed a set of strings and the shop and only a few ghs packets.never heard of them but I just couldn't go a day without playing my guitar so picked up a set of ghs just to keep going till I got Ernie ball again but man once you try ghs ....period..nothing else comes close to their tone ,they last so so long ,bends sound so much more sweeter ..I just love these strings..

                  Boomers were recomended to me years ago by the guitar repairman at the store I worked at, and they've been on all my guitars ever since. Long life, they seldom break, and they sound great. What more can I ask from a string.

                  as good as any

                  Comments about GHS Boomers Light Roundwound Electric Guitar Strings (10-Pack):

                  I can't usually tell one set of .10's from another. Most of them are good, a few are not. Boomers have been good since I started playing in the '80's.
                  I like the fact that they're using sealed packaging, you can buy in bulk and they won't be rusty when you're ready to use them.

                        These things just ROCK. Played with "slinkys," as well,as a kid and tried the strings later. Not to shabby, but the GHS things just blow me away. Resonnace and tone, sure they can break. But hey, any string can. You won't be having any fun, if you didn't break a few strings. Sorry Erine, I just love GHS. Buy a years supply at a time. And the Phosphor Bronze stuff. Don't get me started. For an acoustic, Elixers don't even get close. Sure they can last for months, if you don't care about your sound. Call me crazy, but I actually do. GHS strings will tell you when it's time for a change. Listen to them.

                                  Feels terrible, just replaced my elixirs with this, would rather go back to my 3 month old elixir strings than this. The A string feels the worst, can't do any slides.

                                      I have tried everything. My never-ending urge is fast alternate picking, not to use often or show off with but to have as backup. Big margin gives me a range of control during solos. The various gauges and brands provide a range of stiffness. The Boomers seem to provide this in about the middle between two other well known brands. Plus I think something has happened with Boomers. They seem to provide even better tone! I like improving what you've got as apposed to coming out with some kind of new Fanta-metal, wiz bang at high price a set. I play Strat's, standard tune.

                                        I used to love GHS Boomers, but I've had way too many quality issues with them over the years to consider them again.

                                        The most recent experience was with two 6-packs (5-pack with 'bonus' set) of 10-46 strings. The strings in the first pack never stopped stretching. No matter how many times I stretched them out, they would still stretch more, so tuning stability was awful. They also rusted very quickly, even on guitars kept in cases.

                                        At least those strings were somewhat useable though. I just opened the 2nd six pack hoping that they would be more stable than the last six pack. Much to my chagrin, there was not a single B-string in the entire 6-pack! 6 sets of useless strings.

                                        Never again will I buy GHS strings. Too bad, because they used to be my favorite.
