A fair bit unbalanced

30.09.2015
When buying an 8-string I needed some replacement strings, and these were some of the ones I wanted to try. I only use Elixir normally, but seeing that they are either very limited or expensive when it comes to different gauges, I went for these since I used D'addario before Elixir and this set seems to be pretty "go-to" in the ERG community. The guitar I fitted them on was an Ibanez RG8 with a 27" inch scale. First impressions were good, but went south after a bit of tinkering. First of all, light strings were too tight, and a 27" scale isn't even that much for an 8 string. The 74 for the low f# seemed too light however, at least for the scale length. The tension jump to the 64 for the low b is just too steep, and the string was very tight. The sound however was very good. Nice for tight heavy rythm, just not on the f#. Overall, okay considering the options out there but still a very unbalanced set.

D'Addario EXL140-8

13.07.2014
I bought these when I purchased my new 8 string, Ibanez S8QM as I wanted to try something heavier to the 9-65 set which came with the guitar. The D'Addario string set came covered in a plastic wallet inside a cardboard box. For anyone who hasn't used D'Addario strings before, each string comes with a different coloured ball end, which are indicated on the plastic wallet, making re-stringing a breeze and add some colour to the bridge of the guitar. The strings are very bright sounding and remain feeling fresh for a long time, which for me was roughly a month of daily practise and playing sessions, which is something I had never been able to achieve with other string brands. I would definitely recommend this set for any 8 string guitar user.
