BIG PHAT 8 String!
I have a 7 string guitar that I tune to A Standard tuning with my band. I recently got hooked onto using the D’Addarrio EXL 140-8. This particular gauge option (10-74) allows me to have a nice balance in tension with my lower-tuning. Considering no other string manufacturer has my ideal 7 String gauge option (with 10-64) at the moment, I figured that buying an 8 string packet (10-74) solved my issue and it surely did! Thanks to this experiment I now have the extra string (8th String-74 gauge) that I do not use. Any takers are welcome!
