Great Set of Strings
January 26, 2022
I’ve been using this set for as long as I can remember. Other than the outstanding tone my favorite part is that they don’t feel slippery like many sets, making them easy to grab when doing bends. I use this set on all my guitars!

  • Don?t feel slippery

Gutsy But a Pleasure to Play

I heard about these strings on a Facebook group. If you want to play heavier strings to get the SRV tone, try these strings! They play about like a set of 10s with very good feel, tone and bendability. They are differently made compared to just ordering similar gauges of other strings. The most playable of any set of this size. My Strat only needed a slight truss rod adjustment after having nines on it.

I use these exclusively. When stretched across a Stratocaster, nothing sounds better. With proper care, they maintain brightness and clean tone. I recommend using graphite in the nut and on bridge saddles--it actually does prolong string life.

I use my tremolo bar much: they stay in tune and continue to sound awesome. Be sure to hand-stretch to aid with break in. I have been playing for 50 years and tried many brands--these are the best and a great price from Just Strings.

I have used this for years. I really like the tone. Got turned on to them cause SRV used them. These on my Strat and Super Reverb with a TubeScreamer. Heaven awaits!

I used to use Fender 11's at a half step down and now obviously I use the SRV set. First off, if you like blues music you need to figure out what tone you want, most players like pure nickel. Pure nickle offers a warmer tone than Nickel Plated Steel, or Stainless. Keep in mind that the thicker you go you NEED to detune and adjust neck relief or at least adjust the neck if you don't want to detune. So what im getting at is these particular strings from GHS are superb, they have thick rich tones that make my '04 Am. Strat sound just like SRV. Of course I'm playing through a Fender amp. I wouln't recommend these strings right off the rip, I think one needs to work up to these gauges because they are hefty for 11's. I'm not a pro on strings just a fan of GHS, that's all, so if you get these strings and they are initially hard to bend just keep playing them, you will get used to them. But all in all I hope this was an insightful review. Happy Stringin' Ev'ry One

Great strings, very hard to find in the CNY area. Fast shipping and all in all good customer service. Every time I play now, I pay tribute the blues legend SRV. You can't get this kind of tone from any other brand. GHS all the way.

GHS Nickel Rockers Rollerwound low tune
November 1, 2009
I built my own Steve Ray Vaughan guitar to his original specs and these strings sound perfect! I tune them to standard and they still have plenty of give to them. I usually change the .011 to a .012. I know Stevie used the .011 for the high e but that .011 feels a bit out of place for me. All in all I love em and I don't think I'm going to find better strings for my Stevie strat.

GHS Strings


"GHS Corporation is one of the world's leading manufacturers of high quality strings for fretted instruments. GHS produces strings for electric, acoustic and classic guitar, electric bass, banjo, mandolin, and a wide array of specialty and ethnic instruments. From Battle Creek, Michigan, USA (where GHS was founded in 1964), fresh-from-the-factory strings and music products are delivered direct to retail stores in the USA and to distributors in over 70 countries around the world.

With over 200 standard sets and 700 single strings, GHS has a set that is right for you.

String Design

The string specialists at GHS bring a craftsman-like approach to each aspect of string design. From material selection to such intricate factors as core-to-cover ratio, winding direction, wire tension and alteration of the wire, GHS designs state-of-the-art strings that enhance the sound quality of all playing styles and instruments. And with ongoing research, GHS develops string innovations that anticipate music trends and instrument modifications worldwide.

String Manufacturing

To build a quality product, state-of-the-art equipment is a necessity. At GHS, all strings are made on machinery designed and built in-house. The GHS design engineers utilize the latest technology to develop computer controlled string making machines that monitor such intricate parameters as the number and type of twists on the ball end, winding speed and direction, core and cover wire tension, cover wire angle and wind length. Modern quality control methods ensure that the final product meets GHS's rigid specifications.

Factory Fresh

GHS knows that you want your strings to be as fresh as the day they were made. All GHS facilities are environmentally regulated to control temperatures and humidity. Sensitive raw materials and bulk products are further wrapped in protective bags for storage. Coiled strings are placed in string packets that, in independent laboratory tests, have proven to offer the optimum protection from humidity. Finally, the GHS swift order shipment (usually within 24 hours of order placement) guarantees that GHS strings arrive in your retail store factory-fresh.

How String Material Affects Tone and Feel

The hardness of common materials used in the cover wire of strings affects both the tone and "feel" of a string. Usually, with all else remaining constant, the harder the material the brighter the string. This relationship shows why stainless steel produces a very bright sound and nickel, a softer material, produces a warmer sound. However, a hard material can be abrasive to both fingers and frets. At GHS, our unique "Alloy 52", used in Progressives and White Bronze strings, is softer and less abrasive than a stainless steel but produces a tone almost as bright. Common cover wire materials include (ranked by order of brightness) stainless steel, Alloy 52, nickel plated steel, pure nickel, and for acoustics, brass and bronze.

The core wire for all strings and all plain steel strings (both acoustic and electric) are made from tin plated Swedish steel."
