From the inventor of guitar strings

Strings made by Ernie Ball - the proverbial icing on the cake for a powerful sound with plenty of sustain. Since the early 1960s, the US company has been making strings for almost every stringed instrument. This vast wealth of experience is clearly demonstrated in every product, and it is not by chance that Ernie Ball remains one of the market's leading manufacturers to this day. The product range has expanded immensely over the course of several decades and now includes many accessories such as effect pedals, cables, straps, and high-quality picks alongside the company's extensive selection of strings. However, Ernie Ball's core business is and remains the production of all manner of strings, which set standards in terms of sound, tuning stability, and durability - and the company is still based in Indio, California.

The legend with seven strings

The Ernie Ball Regular Slinky strings rank among the most popular strings worldwide - and the 2621 7-String Regular Slinky set follows up on this glorious tradition, but with one extra string. This string set is designed specifically for guitarists with seven-string instruments who value excellent low-end definition and a high level of playing comfort. The wound strings feature a hexagonal steel core beneath nickel-plated steel windings. In contrast, the plain strings are made from a specially hardened and tin-plated high-tensile carbon steel. With gauges of .010, .013, .017, .026, .036, .046, and .056, the 2621 7-String Regular Slinky set offers not only a comfortable playing feel but also a powerful and rich tone, which of course makes them particularly suitable for Metal.

The combined power of over 50 years of experience in string development at Ernie Ball also makes the Ernie Ball 2621 7-String Regular Slinky set the first choice for seven-string electric guitars - and at a very fair price.

About Ernie Ball

The Ernie Ball company was named after its founder and has its headquarters in San Luis Opisbo, California. Being a guitarist himself, Ernie Ball knew their needs very well. A major problem for him in the 1950s and 1960s was the lack of high-quality guitar and bass strings. In 1962, Ernie Ball invented the “Slinky”, a very flexible and therefore much more comfortable string, which also sounded better and was more durable. He specifically brought individual string gauges onto the market for a young clientele and touring musicians. The company’s success was unstoppable, and today Ernie Ball is the world's largest manufacturer of guitar and bass strings. Over the years, the range has expanded and now includes accessories such as cables, picks, straps, etc. Ernie Ball is also known in connection with the instrument manufacturer Music Man, which the company bought in 1984, but which continues to operate as an independent brand.

Perfect for Metal

The 2621 7-String Regular Slinky set offers a balanced and full sound that brings out the best in your seven-string electric guitar. The strings' precise intonation means that chords, riffs, and solos will always sound bright and clear anywhere on the fingerboard. In addition, these strings deliver excellent tuning stability as well as a direct tonal response, something that is crucial especially for the low strings, such as when playing precise riffs. Whether you are playing powerful high-gain riffs, crystal-clear clean parts, or expressive solos, the Ernie Ball 2621 7-String Regular Slinky set offers the perfect balance between playing feel, durability, and a full sound.

My baseline strings
gimmeapill 13.11.2018
They're cheap, have a nice & bright RnR growl, and can last for a very long time if soaked regularly with Dunlop Formula65 String Cleaner (or possibly other brands).

For playing live, it is probably wiser to change them after every show, but of course YMMV.

I also really like the tension balance of the 7 string set with my 25.5' scale guitar in standard tuning - the B string feels just fine to me, although some might find it a bit too soft.

I didn't try this set with a 26.5' guitar, but taking my 8 string as a reference, I would expect the 0.10 high E to feel a bit shrill and would probably go for the lighter set.

Can't go wrong with this price. Sound pretty good and keep the tone for a long time (or is it the Fast Fret and the Dr. Duck's Axe Oil?)
