Finalmente temos HB Valuestrings para 8 cordas!
capellamusic 15.07.2021
Em primeiro acho que alguém na Thomann me leu o pensamento porque eu muito desejava que fizessem packs Harley Benton Valuestrings para guitarras de 8 cordas e no calibre que uso, 10-74, e não é que fizeram? Muito obrigado thomann e Harley Benton! Já agora podiam também fazer para baixos de 6 cordas e que dê para escalas super/extra long ;) .

Em segundo, já pus numa das minhas Harley Benton R458MN WH Fanfret e fiquei francamente surpreendido pela positiva. Não é a primeira vez que uso desta gama de cordas da Harley Benton, já uso para as guitarras de 6 cordas e para o meu baixo de 4 cordas, e gosto especialmente no baixo. Não são topo de gama, mas francamente são muito boas e duráveis e soam muito bem, especialmente com distorção, que entre marcas pouca diferença se nota no som. O outro guitarrista da minha banda também usa há anos e a opinião é muito positiva também.

E agora finalmente temos para guitarras de 8 cordas (e de 7) e com a mesma boa qualidade. Acrescento que as cordas mais grossas ao contrário de outras marcas não afunilam no final (não ficam estreitas), o que é ótimo, pelo que se torna mais versátil para acomodar diferentes tamanhos da escala. Nas minhas guitarras no lado grave a escala é 27" (686mm) e a corda de F# é mais que suficiente e passa na cravelha original sem problemas.

Colocar cordas numa guitarra de 8 cordas é dispendioso, mas agora temos esta opção que é muito acessível e de boa qualidade, não há queixa possível, recomendo vivamente, no mínimo para as guitarras suplentes, concertos e ensaios, para baixar os custos de manutenção das guitarras. Mas não vejo problema em também se gravar com elas, são mais do que adequadas. E para quem não trabalhar em música é mais que perfeito para também não gastar balúrdios.

ALL OK

Normal strings, no lower anywhere. If you take an eight-string guitar, you can take several packs at once, since when you received an eight-stringed guitar, you had to immediately change the strings. The guitar is thinner, which does not allow it to be tuned in DPOP E

Decent strings for a decent price
Mofosir 30.10.2022
Got just one pack of these to test them out, now I regret not getting more than one. Decent strings, especially when You factor in that they cost but a third of a regular pack. Of course they will not last as long as coated strings, but just having these as a backup is great, not everyone can afford to change the entire pack every time a string breaks, and these fill in that slot perfectly. Plus, as they cost so little You can just change them more often, thus alleviating the need of coated strings to a degree. Furthermore, they aren't bad in any way, they keep in tune, intonate, feel nice on the fingers and most importantly sound good on the lower (B, F#) strings. Also some fatter strings for guitar tend to muddy up really fast, not the case here, I've had them on my 8 string for a couple of weeks now and they still sound great. Really can't complain, glad that Thomann provides something in this price bracket. Also, on a side note, for anyone who bought the R-458MN WH Fanfret, get a pack of these and change the strings the moment you get the guitar - the lower register will thank you!

They do what no one else can
NevermindMe 28.12.2022
The gauges on these strings have been taken from other (considerably more expensive) string manufacturers for the needs of 8 string guitars. However, the way I use them is discard (save) the first and last string and use the 13-64 as baritone gauges on a 6-string guitar. They are perfect since they have slightly more tension than other sets which are meant for baritone, meaning you will not have loose strings, therefore tuning issues. The other great advantage is this is the first affordable set that allows you to do this, meaning you can take this set to a luthier to set up your guitar and not worry too much if you end up discarding them. All I see with this set is win-win all around.
