Freshly sealed, an all-time classic!
Paul.G, 16.09.2020
I have been using these gauge 8 strings for the past twenty years, and the packet that Thomann sent me are as good as any.

I recommend the lighter gauge to those that want more tonal control over their bends. Being very light, these strings allow for easy bends that might be less comfortable on thicker strings. I prefer a lighter touch, and these strings allow me to perform microtonal bends with high accuracy.

The thin nature of the bass strings also provide a much tighter low end, making crunchier sounds feel less muddy, and allow the guitar to ring out more, due to the lower tension.

Best. Strings. Ever.

Tired of killing your hands trying to reach those higher bends?
Feel like there's something lacking in your bottom end?

BUY THESE STRINGS!

Best-kept secret of the 60's and '70s guitar gods. Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Chuck Berry... all these guys used 8's! Eddie Van Halen used 9's but tuned down a half step, the equivalent of 8's in standard tuning).

Other light gauge string aficionados: Zappa, Toni Iommi, Brian May, B.B. King, Frampton, Malmsteen, Vai, Satriani, Billy Gibbons... the list goes on.

Seriously, buy these strings.

They simply work
GearHead:), 08.11.2019
I wanted to get these strings for one of my strats. Get that Hendrix vibe. I have not tried them on guitars with smaller scale lengths. But for 25.5" scale lengths these strings simply work.

They are super light and very easy to shred on. These strings make string bending a dream.

Really nice
KarlC, 12.05.2018
Its 20 years since I put these on a strat, and man I missed them. Amazing strings, easy to adjust intonation down from 9s. Oh if you are using a strat and you find the G string won't intonate, you'll need to remove the string tree holding the G and D strings from the head stock and allow the strings to run freely to their pegs. Not the fault of the strings. I'd forgotten this happens as its 20 years since I set up a strat with 008s.

Beautiful sound, adjusted the settings a bit in my amp settings, so easy to play. That said I am a delicate player.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
