Very durable
December 20, 2020
I've been touring on them since 2000 and never broke one or showed poor quality. The tone is sharp and lasts about 2 to 3 monthe with 3 gigs a week. Even when the sharpness goes away it has an 80's iron maidrn tone. And continued durability. With ghs cleaner they last and last. They are the only strings i use on all my 5 and 4 strings. I do switch to kensmith rock masters for my 6 strings though. Obvious choice their.
Longevity Price Sound quality.

I have always liked the sound and feel of GHS strings on other peoples basses, so I decided to try a set on my new Ibanez 605RG. I like them so far.

Bass Boomers

I have used boomers on my Strats for years. My wife plays bass and I have experimented with several bass string brands.
Bass Boomers are as good or better than strings costing much more. They have a ringing tone and last months before sounding dull. A very, very good product that I will stick with!

I put the 5 string set on and WOW, I'm back in 1987!! I have been using D'Addario for a while and have been itching for Boomers. Such a good sound. I have my tone and attack and I hope to be wearing them out soon.

I've been playing guitar and bass semi-professionally for 30 years, and for the past few years, I've been using Bass Boomers exclusively on all of my electrics. Consistant tone through out their life, very durable, excellent balance and feel and a very predictable life span makes these perfect for me. I won't use anything else.

Awesome strings!! My custom built Mayones basses was delivered with these strings back in 2007, and they have lasted until now. These are the most comfortable strings I've ever used, and I will stick to them.

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."
