Best strings

12th Sep 2018

The best strings I've ever used!

Absolutely the BEST Strings

Steve Stine on 28th Mar 2018

I have been using GHS Boomers for decades, and if I try something different, I just keep coming back to them anyway. Thank you for making my guitar journey that much better. Steve Stine

Boomers sound great

5th Oct 2017

And I swear the plain strings are a little easier to bend (stretchier?) than other makes.

Reliable as always

the solution to many G string problems

lui Sutil on 27th Jan 2017

Ok, first of all I have been usong GHS strings for a log time and they are the obly string company I trust to not break on a bend or hard picking... I've been happy with many other brands but they just aren't as reliable. Also, for me the superiority in tone is obvios. But what I would like to write about today is about a very cummon but misunderstood problem about Stratocasters and the G string fret warble... now, I'm not talking about the G string getting out of tune, or fret buzz, I know there are plebty of problems like that but I am talking a very specofoc problem where the G string has a weird warble or wobble in the G string when we apply overdrive... there is no problem with the clean channel , it only happens when we apply distortion and it is drivong us mad. I've come to the conclusion that it is most likely the magnetic pull feon the pickups... but then I notoced thatmessing with the thirst rod either helps or changes the position of the problem... usually we get this oroblem around the 12th fret ... but I noticjed thag if we set the neck as straight as possible, with no relif, this helps the G string problem... but if you want to get rid of it once and for all and just have your strat sound better, use the GHSA DYXL strings! They are basically a pair of 10's which is what I have been using dor years, the obly diferrence is that the G steing is wounded... i stead of being gauge 17 it is 18 ... very small proce to pay if you ask me... It definitely sounds and feel different, but man, I thibk my strat sounds a lot better than before, less harsh and more smooth... also any G string warble with distortion is gone, and sounds clear and as good as it can be. So if you are one of the many affected by G string problems like this , a wound third set of strings will most likely get rid lf the problem. It just happens tobe that the DYXL's are almost the same size as a regular set. Thank you GHS for being such and amazing string company!

Who knew?

I read that Jimi Hendrix used 10 thru 38's on his strats. I've always used 9 thru 42's and 10 thru 46's. So I thought I would give it a whirl. So far so good, I like the even string tension across the neck. I don't know how else to describe it other than saying it just feels more balanced. The 38 on the low E takes a bit of getting used to because it's the first string you generally hit. So you have to learn to lighten up on your initial attack. Other than that they're feeling and sounding great! Boomers have always been a great sounding string and are always consistent.
