3.0 out of 5 stars d addario strings for 8 string guitar, 30 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: D'Addario Light Top/Heavy Bottom 10-74 8-String Nickel Wound Electric Guitar Strings (Electronics)
this product was ok it has an average string gauge for the 8 string but doesnt allow much opportunity to tune lower. there are very few packs of strings for 8 string guitars out there these days which is very frustrating for me as an 8 string guitar player. my favourite make of string would be dunlops which unfortunately i cant seem to find anywhere an 8 string pack of. the d'addario are my second favourite make of string most likely although they do seem to take a week to several weeks to break in properly to get the right tone of them and lose all the clangy sort of noise that you get when breaking in new strings where as other makes i prefer tend to break in within a few hours to even just one day and have more option for string gauge thickness as some guitarists like myself like to tune lower and see were the 8 string can go so tuning the hole guitar even a half step down or the top string to an octave E is near impossible and can cause alot of noise due to the string tension not holding properly even on a good scale length neck on the 8 string guitar such as a 26.5 inch scale neck..
