GHS Strings GB-DGF David Gilmour Signature Series, Nickel-Plated Electric Guitar Strings (.010-.048)


David Gilmour’s connection with GHS Boomers series goes back to 1979, when he started using them on Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” project. He uses gauges 010-012-016-028-038-048 on his Fender Stratocaster and gauges 010 1/2-013-017-030-040-050 on his Gibson Les Paul . Decide for yourself which is right for you!

From 1964 to now, the GHS Boomers series has been the flagship set of GHS Strings. Used by musicians in every genre, the Boomers have shown to stand up to any playing style. Now known as “The Power String”, GHS Boomers continue to make their mark on music across the world. The roundwound guitar set is made with Nickel-Plated steel wrapped tightly around a round core wire. The combination provides the string with its bright characteristic and long-lasting tone.

They sound good too, The beefier strings sound great. My strings never last very long, and these seemed to keep their overall sound a bit…
