Extended Life, Enhanced Powerful Tone!

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. Each set set of these incredible strings is backed by decades of experience and GHS' unwavering commitment to quality.

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.

My fingers corrode strings fast, these have been solid with much slower wear then other, excellent tuning stability and sound good, they have a smooth feel for slides and are holding up well.

A salesman at a local chain store who works their high end Les Paul corner where you have to ask to handle the guitars exclaimed one day that GHS Nickel Rockers are actually the best strings out there. I bought a set on his word but I had been a fan of the NYXLs and Elixirs. The GHS Nickel Rockers have a character I can best put as "less is more". Don't take that to mean they are really less in any regards, it's just that notes, especially in chords and "busy" riffs seem to keep a clearer differentiation from each other than stings that are partly steel. The Nickel Rockers are plenty bright but not shrill. I cover Cream's version of Robert Johnson's "Crossroads" and when using other brands, the bend of the A string at the third fret with pull-off to open A that prefaces the main riff disappears with a new set of NYXLs. Not so with GHS Nickel Rockers. You get great balance and a full and distinctive sound fit for the best electric guitars on the market. Why spend more for the fancy name and packaging or coating? Try these. They last very well and have made a devotee of me. They let me "see the sound".

Nice Sound and Easy on the Fingers

I used these years and years ago, then switched to a small, boutique manufacturer for my nickel strings. As time went on, it became harder and harder to get them, so I decided to give these a try again. Frankly, they're every bit as good as the VERY expensive sets I was using! Nickel Rockers feel good on the fingers, last a long time and have a nice, mellow tone. I should have stuck with them ages ago!

Good feel, good sound

I've been using these for some years now. My LP was on the bright side and these toned it down nicely. They are not flatwound. They're just flattened a little bit. Much like D'Addario semi-round (which I like on bass). Anyway, they also sound great on my Heritage 535 (similar to Gibby ES-335). Brings out the sound of the wood.Also, the quality overall has been good. One bad string in dozens of sets.
