GHS has been manufacturing high-quality guitar strings since 1964. Professional musicians and amateur hobbyists who want great sound from their strings turn to GHS for a wide variety of tones. Whatever your tastes, from bright crunching rock to a mellow, bluesy sound, there's a set of GHS string that's right for you. The goal at GHS is to provide players around the world with strings that consistently exceed expectations.

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.

I've used GHS strings for 30 + years on my electric guitars, , and have been very well satisfied. I've used the extra lights, lights, and custom lights, and tremolo GHS strings. I am self taught and play by ear, not very well I might add,but never the less I still like to try playing. I've tried several string brands, and GHS is the best you can get. So, buy a set, or 10, and try them you'll never regret it. Thanks GHS, and Sweetwater.

Nice strings but....

I use to use this brand & gauge exclusively on my electric guitars. I put the guitars down for 2 years because life got in the way. Anyway, I've started playing a lot and loaded the Boomers on my Les Paul & Strat. I've had them on my guitars for a week or so and just as before, they sounded great. I only have one problem with them now & that is that they turn my fingers and fretboard black. I'm a pretty hard lead player & that may be the reason I'm wearing them down so fast. When I play a lot, I change strings every 2 weeks or so & the Boomers were cheap enough to do that. I've tried Ernie Ball Cobalt & M-Steel strings that cost more than the Boomers & I didn't have so much string breakdown. I guess I'll change to the Ernie Ball strings.
