Possibly storage?

I know the "budget" Ernie Ball strings can be hit and miss but as I bought a 8 string I went with a familiar name and the gauge was around what I was after too.

I've seen this in the past so its not an exclusive issue with Thomann for sure, but getting the new strings out of the pack parts of the string have already weathered (whether (ha) that is the right term or not I'm not 100%) but parts of the string (lighter) have rust marks on them new out of the packet.

Great strings
fret_0, 22.06.2021
I use these for my 26.5 scale 8 string. Unfortunately i have to buy .85 8th string separately because of the scale length and lack of string sets available, as .80 is muddy for my tuning of E, A, E, A, D, G, B, E. Rest of the set fits perfectly though, they sound great and there is nothing wrong with them. Would recommend.

Exact description, it does what it's supposed to.

Bought it for my Ibanez 8 String. I must say that in the beginning it was a bit daunting to play a .80 gauge string on a guitar. But with time I got used to it. Great for metal or djent. Very clear sounding.

A good balance.

I don't play my 8 too seriously, however since it is a 28" scale I sometimes just track regular solos on it, since I enjoy the intonation. The low string is fine both in F# and E.
If you like the feel of 9's I seriously recommend this particular set.
