    Comments about D'Addario EXL120-7 Super Lite 7-String Electric Guitar Strings:

    I tried heavier ones, they felt difficult and I had to down tune a lot. These one can be regular pitch or half down and even one whole step down in tuning and will stay fine. Drop to G for the bottom string will make that string just a bit sloppy however, but not bad. I like to play 10-46, and have done so for years just playing for myself creating new tones and tunes with 6 string ones. But 10-58 (7) sets become too heavy for me and bending hurts my finger joints. On my Ibanez RG7620, I have consistently used this set for 10 years I believe. Other brands have 9-52 7 string sets, but this is just a bit beefier 9-56. That is hard to find. They do not feel much less heavy in sound than 10-56 ones but are definitely easier to play. I got a 7 string that comes with 10-58 with 26.5" scale, I will change that one to 9-54 too. I have experimented and to try to reduce damage to my finger joints and tendons in the arm I may switch to 9's on 6 string guitars too. On 7-string guitars this is the only one that works for me. If you work out and have very strong forearm muscles, then heavier strings will be fine. I am sticking with the 9-54. I have not found another set with a 54 as the bottom string with 9 gauge for the rest. Life of strings: they last long, but not longer than Elixir or DR. They lose a bit of brightness and settle at a nice level and stay at this for months. I wish I could get this set in a coated version also. If you play the same 7 string every day 4 to 5 hours, I estimate with shred playing, change strings in two months (if you alway clean them after playing). I have had mine in for over 6 months now, i use a string cleaner. Every gauge has its own benfits and some cons, try several. They are ALL fun. I highly recommend these.

    Daddario strings are the best strings on the market today. Never leave home without them.

    Good for standard tuning.

    By Matt

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120-7 Super Lite 7-String Electric Guitar Strings:

    I got an Ibanez 7-string guitar with these on factory. It's good, but not for any tuning below Standard. If you use alternate tunings a lot, go for a heavier gauge.

    sweet on my six string

    By tbass-4VJAU

    from LR, AR

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120-7 Super Lite 7-String Electric Guitar Strings:

    i use these on my six string ibanez rg. i play primarily in drop c and i used to use the ej22 set but found them to be a little too thick so i switched to the ej21 set but the .52 was too thin to handle the low c so i decided to give this set a try. i fell in love. the .54 is perfect to handle the low c and it bends nice and easy. i just pile up the .09 strings since i use them on my six string. i only wish that the .11 was a .12, the .11 is a little slinky when in drop c

    Simply the best!

    Comments about D'Addario EXL120-7 Super Lite 7-String Electric Guitar Strings:

    Amazing consistant tone! These strings sound great even when they're old. The entire life span of these strings is simply awesome. I have tried other brands and have always returned to D'Addario XL series for 6 and 7 string electric guitars.
