Believe it or not, after over 20 years of playing guitar, I have never tried GHS Boomers strings! I recently put them on my guitar and played two shows with them, and I love them. They feel great, stay in tune, and although I can’t yet speak for their longevity, the word in the guitar community is that they are long lasting and rarely break.
I put these strings through some paces. I am heavy handed when I play rhythm chords, and I really like to dig in and bend the strings during solos. These strings held up perfectly – despite being put on recently. The tone was great, and they felt good under my fingers.
At a cost of around $5 a set, I can’t believe I haven’t tried them sooner. These strings are round wound nickel plated steel. I tried the 10-46 gauge strings, but they come in a wide assortment of other gauges to suit different players and different needs.
Considering their feel, durability, and cost, it makes them a great choice for people with multiple guitars and those who gig often and need to change them frequently. A solid string at an affordable price, what more can you ask for?
