Using drop tuned 7 and 8 string guitars, I was always having to mix and match sets from Ernie Ball and D'Addario which increasingly meant having to buy 2 or 3 sets just to get the combo I wanted. In addition, it is a nightmare having to order from retailers a certain obscure string gauge. Winspear strings are optimised for every tuning under the sun with the heaviest of gauges in existence. 8 string in drop G, I use the 8.5-72 set and for a 7 string in drop E I use 11-80.
Plenty of power and life to the strings too. I only use the cheapest strings so they are not engineered to last longer and am pleasantly surprised at the longevity of these. Thanks to the Winspear family for providing strings for the extended range players!
Got a set as a test when I bought some picks from Tom.
I was a die hard NYXL man.
Toms strings are beautiful to play. Bright and clear and silky smooth. Great tuning stability with minimal stretching and so far, seem to retain that new string feel that NYXL are so renown for.
Needless to say, with the very reasonable price per set, I will be switching my allegiance to Winspear from now on (plus the packaging is wicked).
As many other I've tried several different brands and materials of strings. The best ones usually are expensive and most of the standard sets are just not suitable (Tension is not balanced).
These Winspear strings are amazing. The tension is well balanced. I don't feel anymore that some of the strings are slightly off.
The tone is great. The strings sound very clear and bright. It helps a lot to dial in a good High-gain tone with punch, clarity and great note separation.
The acoustic/clear tone is amazing, too. It adds that acoustic like brightness to the tone.
Overall, I highly recommend to try the Winspear strings.
There is only one problem that is you live in UK and I live in Japan. That all.
I received my Winspear 10 - 70 strings today and they're incredible!
The packaging is pristine and the numbers on each string to identify the gauge is a great personal touch and reiterates the fact you're getting a customised product.
They hold tuning really well, feel great and sound incredible!
They have a great clean sound and are great with distortion. They're clear and defined.
Thanks for an outstanding set of strings.
