Amazing how much this changed my world - why work any harder - tone is totally there, bends are amazingly easy, as is vibrato. I just bought 4 more sets and am changing all my guitars over - even 8's I don't particularly care for any more. Don't let anyone tell you you need heavy strings for good tone - it simply ain't true - these things sound sparkly.
I recently found your 8 gauge strings and bought and played them. They were wonderful. I have played for 50 years and love light gauge strings. I have a little arthritus in my hands and They are easier to play. I went to buy some more and saw the 7 gauge. I put them on two Of my guitars today and played for hours. These are the most incredible strings I have ever played. You can pull them - yank them - bend them so far it is unbelievable. And they stay in tune. I play the blues and I am as fast as I was when I was younger with these strings. I will never Play anything else. Thank you for letting me play like I was young again. Thank you Billy Gibbons.
Everybody says you can't get the Rev's tones using light strings. Everybody be wrong. Why don't you trust the Rev to shoot it to you straight?
