Nitro-Pack singles for fresh strings every time

GHS's Nitro-Packs use a revolutionary packaging method to ensure each one of your guitar strings is brand-new and corrosion free when you open the pack. Each string is individually housed in a nitrogen-sealed packet that eliminates any oxygen from around the metal. This sterile environment protects the string from any contaminant and corrosive, and the tear-proof packets have a transparent side for help identifying each string before having to expose them to oxygen. All of this goes into making sure that when you put a set of GHS strings on your guitar, you're getting the freshest and most clear-sounding strings possible.

If You Play Lead You Need These

I really never gave GHS strings much thought until I bought a couple sets of these. These provide far superior sustain and Gilmourish tone than you can imagine. I even use them on my Telecaster. Sounds extra twangy now! Thanks Sweetwater!

Cat's meow

I've been a hybrid slinky man for years but these are awesome, especially the first 3 strings (e,b,g). These are the perfect diameter for me and my strat. I think they are perfect blend of strength and tone. Love the way they bend and sound!! I'm not quite as giddy about the e,a,d strings (very thick) but they do have a very good sound. I'm kind of partial to Mr. D.G. and his tone but I think anybody would like these...well done!

Best Bang for the Buck

OK I admit it that I have paid two and three times the cost of these strings and found myself wanting more. These strings a just great on my Eric Clapton Stratocaster and have a great tone and playability too. I've used almost every gauge of string and brand name around and these work really, really well for me. The high end gauge strings are perfect for bending and the low strings give that great thump that we want. They also have a nice "soft" feel to them that I really enjoy even after a couple of hours of practicing.

Must have for authentic Gilmour tones

I use the Boomer Gilmour signature strings on my own Black Strats when performing Pink Floyd shows with my band. Of course, there are many factors to tone but these strings have given me an edge in recreating the Gilmour tone. The heavy bottoms give a great fat sound and the lighter B and G strings help with those two step bends. I have been sold on the Boomers for the past two years.
