adds Mojo/stability to Strat-style bridges
What is your opinion of this product?
As a Floyd fan since the mid-70's I could hear a difference in David Gilmour's tone around the release of The Wall (he may have used GHS on his first solo album as well, can't confirm that). There was a fundamental change in the quality of his tone. I'm convinced that GHS strings were part of the big picture. I've never reviewed strings but I must say that I was always curious about Mr. Gilmour's custom gauges. I thought they sounded a big bottom-heavy for me. Well, they aren't and this is one economical way to add a bit more stability to your bends (Tremelo & String). And tuning was stabilized as well. I'm used to GHS, I've been bouncing back between them & DR's for 20 years. The most noticeable gains were more definition and signal to the pick-ups, and more accurate bends (the big ones seemed easier also). Please try them out, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I'm using the Light Set 10-48 and I barely had to touch the springs to adjust, maybe a half a turn per screw.

Where have these strings been all my life?
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm usually skeptical of "signature" products, but I couldn't be more amazed by these GHS David Gilmour Sig strings. Currently in the process of re-stringing all of my conventional range electrics with these. Super good sound, long sustain without significant frequency decay, feel great under the fingertips, and they endure many hours of play. They are my new catnip.

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
I have been playing acoustic guitar for years but decided to buy an inexpensive electric just for fun. I put these strings on the electric and they made a big difference in the sound. They play great and stay in tune much better than the old strings. I would definitely recommend them! A great price too.

Most likely THE best strings ever made
What is your opinion of this product?
I am a Gilmour fanatic so my review might seem a bit biased but boy these strings really do hit the spot. I have been using these strings ever since they started making them. Very comfortable and well rounded plus nice to the touch. Other strings seriously pale in comparison. I tried a pack of Ernie Ball slinkies (.10 of course) and it just didn't feel right- those were less firm and sounded a bit tinny and couldn't handle tuning changes. These strings by comparison are god tier. What can I say, GHS just puts out really good products!

Cannot go wrong with GHS strings, and these are right in line with their quality.
What is your opinion of this product?
I always use GHS Boomers, and having a slightly heavier bottom helps generate a wonderful depth in my tone.
