Perfect!

I'm constantly going between drop C and drop B on 25.5" scale and 24.75" scale guitars, and I never know what gauge I should buy other than my standard drop C set for 25.5" scale, and this calculator makes it painless! Thanks for putting this out there Tom!

Fantastic strings

I was interested to try out these strings as I was getting sick of tension spikes on other brand sets - these cure all those problems.

On top of that, they sound great, stay in tune and last a decent amount of time. I'll be purchasing all my strings from here for the foreseeable future.

Absolutely brilliant!!

I've been using these strings for a while now, and I'm coming from NYXLs 12-60s.

While those were alright, I did find them losing their sound quite quickly, and the tuning stability was pretty naff.

I got in touch with Tom and asked for some gauge advice as I wanted something with a bit more tension than the 60.

He sorted out the strings I'd need and I ordered from there!

Never going to buy strings from a shop for an acoustic again! Unless in dyer need.

No more tuning stability problems, no more dead strings.

Sounds amazing on my Aristides, and just purchased another set for my Mayones and Ran!

10/10 would recommend.

70-10 "Drop" 7 string set.

For a long time I have obsessed over string gauges and finding the perfect balanced set. This often resulted in buying single strings or mixing and matching between different packs of strings to achieve my desired tensions. I stumbled across this site to find the 7 string "Drop" Set (70-10) and they are ideal, exactly what I'm looking for for Drop Ab. Offering the standard and drop sets is an incredibly good idea as it allows you to pick the set ideally suited to you, quite frankly I'm shocked that this isn't a more standard approach with the bigger brands....

I'm looking to buy a 10.5 to 58 "Drop" 6 string set for Drop C in the near future and possibly one of the 8 string sets later on.

These strings are great incredibly well put together (further customisation of sets can be achieved with the semi-custom option!) and so far they sound and feel great on the instrument. I thoroughly recommend to anyone considering buying them. They are pretty competitively priced also! Give them a go!

My new go to brand

I've just changed my guitar's D'Addario NYXLs for these. The first thing that called my attention as soon as they were broken into is that they all seemed to be extremely well balanced tensionwise. My NYXLs would bend this many semitones per string on my 26.5" 7 string: e(2), b(3), g(5), D (3) etc... Very uneven, but it's what I was used to and I didn't see this negatively. Now I got some semi custom 7 string sets with light high and heavy bass strings. The 3 high strings bend up to 4 semitones, and the lower strings up to 3 semitones (4 with the low E and 5 with my low B, maybe I'll need a slightly thicker gauge for those). Also, these are very stable and stay in tune very well, and have a very nice bright tone that becomes bassier as the string becomes thicker, which I personaly like. On top of that, a 7 string set is under 11€ while the 7 string NYXLs are like 18€.
