When you love the sound of your iconic Boomers® but live in a humid area that is known for killing strings, our Coated Boomers® are the perfect solution! Unlike other manufacturers, we have the nickel-plated steel wire coated FIRST and then wrapped around the round core wire. This keeps the signature tone intact, without any dull or muffled sound.

Coated plain steel strings round out the sets, to ensure that you can play longer and sound better, with GHS Coated Boomers®.

Why Should You Play Coated Boomers®?

  • You love the tone of Boomers® but want more longevity
  • You like the feel of coated strings, but not the typical coated sound
  • You're in a humid area and need a set of strings that can handle the "heat"

"Awesome tone, tension and feel. I've found what I consider to be the perfect string!"

I’m sorry about the confusion Jonathan 

That was me just  misunderstanding the webpage ordering process

but I got it so everything’s cool 

One thing I’m concerned about it seems the local guitar center here in Danbury Connecticut hasn’t been stocking GSH strings for a while. Are you still doing business with Guitar Center?

Thank You 


Jonathan Moody

Hi Ron, I'm glad everything was figured out. If you have any suggestions on how we could improve the ordering process, I would be glad to listen. 

As for GC, we're working on it. We were removed from the planogram last year, but have still been doing a lot of business with them through their online store (and MF). We're hopeful that GHS will be back on the shelves at the next planogram change.

Hi Ron, I don't quite understand your question? The CB-GBXL Extra Light set is available on this page. Are you looking for it locally?
