I've tried multiple 8 string sets and I come back to these every time.
My string quest finally led me to D'Addario Jazz Lights. Before ordering them, I was slightly put off by the heavier gauge (0.10 to 0.12) as I have a severed tendon in the middle finger of my left hand, which makes holding down strings a fair bit harder for me. Also, I'm not a jazz player so that also put me off a bit. But I took the plunge and it proved to be a good decision. My fingers cope really well with the heavier gauge and it's not been a problem. The Jazz Lights really suit my finger style playing, and give me extra volume and improved tone, particularly on the top three strings. Now my Godin Acousticaster is back to its best and delivering the sound I fell in love with when I first tried it out in the shop more than 20 years ago.
That said they sound great despite being hard to play and I am sure they play well when tuned to F# on an 8 string. I think I will be going back to a 10-62 set when I get sick of these. If only there were as much choice for 7 string sets as there are for 6 and 8 string.
I've used Ernies before and they break way too quickly, I've used Rotos and they lose tone way too quickly, but in general I've found D'addarios to be solid, reliable strings. This set is no exception, I highly recommend them.
