Slinky beast in eco package, highs just a little bit too soft

Nerijus, 30.05.2015
As a long time user of D*#@* 6-string set, wasn't sure about what to chose for a set of my new entry level 8-string guitar in the same order from Thommann's to restring, but these Ernies custom gauge in their site sounded just neat. Perfect clean tones, and semi-wild distorted crunch with omnipresent subtle sparks of obertones was just a right choice for passive humbuckers. Over all great strings and plays great for my playing style of metalcore with occasional clean passages. The only cons - the highs are just little a bit too soft on lower action in Eb tuning, next time I 'll be preparing my fingers for some heavier gauges for sure, but these custom gauges create interesting and a bit unexpected feeling for play as well. Some different kind of balance.

Bright, long lasting strings

Dispersedashes, 14.08.2013
The Ernie Ball 2625 string set for was one of the first on the market for 8 string players, and as with all EB strings they are bright, smooth and long lasting. Upon purchase of an eight string I was reasonably skeptical regarding one of the major manufacturers getting the gauges right, and resigned myself to mixing and matching to get the desired tensions. I was therefor pleasantly surprised to find the 2625 set absolutely bang on! That said, scale length and tuning become serious factors... tuning too much below standard on anything under a 27inch scale length may present a very floppy 8th string. However, swapping out the supplied .74 for a .80 single string is no huge inconvenience.
Recording with Slinky's is always a joy, and this set is no exception, retaining a natural feel and long lasting tonality. When swapping out the 8th string (another manufacturer - no names mentioned!) that string becomes dull and indistinct on average twice as quickly as the rest of the set.
So Ernie Ball does it again - although on reflection perhaps the .74 could be increased a little to cover all bases...
