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€.

Great Strings

Very happy with these strings. I was using D'Addario and was having issues with them drifting out of tune, but so far these have been way more stable. They sound great too!

Awesome strings

I love these strings! Good stability and tone. Awesome feeling plain strings and smooth feeling wound strings. Great even sound. They are just crisp and perfectly wound up. The packaging is top notch and the resealable string bag is a great idea. Each string is labeled with their gauge. It’s definitely done right. I will be buying these again for sure.
