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.

Mediocre

James Clayton, 12.12.2017
If your going for Live use then these will be more than good enough. But after some recording a couple weeks ago I've found in comparison to other brands these tend to wear out really quickly and just don't hold tunings as well. Could be they just need longer to stretch out, but was a bit disappointed with these compared to other heavy gauge strings I've used in the past.
