8's!
Bob @ Piedmont Guitars, 09.06.2018
I was surprised at the longevity and sound quality of these strings. I expected a volume loss with such a thin string. It did not happen.
Many of the world's greatest guitars used 8's. I play blues, and I have arthritis creeping into my hands. Bending notes is getting harder each year. I decided to try using a lighter gauge string to see if it helped. While I got great results, I was worried they would wear out faster. They did not. In fact they are the longest lasting strings I have found so far. I have switched all of my guitars to 8's, and GHS Boomers have become the standard string for all of my builds, unless a customer asks for something else. If you have never tried Boomers, give them a shot. They are easy on your frets too!

Great and reliable
Frostmeister, 22.04.2021
I've been using GHS Boomers since the early '00s.
They last enough, they sound good, they are cheap.
Can't beat that..

Hi,
I got these to try as a change from my usual D'addario EXLs. They only lasted a day on my guitar, as I really didn't like the tone from them. To me, they didn't sound as 'lively' as the d'addarios, and my perception was that the string tension was higher.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
