  • Great even for 7 strings

    As reviewed by Leonardo TreviƱo on 7/21/2011

    This set of strings was released first for Schecter Guitars and were called Decimators, same gauges specially thought of for their 8 strings. I've tried them on 8 string guitars and they give a lot of punch in the end allowing if you want to tune down the guitar a whole step. Also this strings are great on 7 string guitars specially if you like to get the tuning down a step, actually its the ones i use with the tuning A-D-G-C-F-A-D and they don't feel like rubber bands like the regular ones, and I've gotta say I use them with a Floyd Rose, and even when you would think its extremely hard to set up, its not. Actually if you check out the gauges its like Dean Markley's Light Top Heavy Bottom. If you are a low tone guitar player and want stability and not feel rubber bands in your fingers this is the way to go.

  • Changed my mind

    As reviewed by Brian Dice on 9/20/2012

    I wrote a review earlier about these strings, but I have definitely changed my mind. I do have an eight string, and I used these for it and wow...they were not very good. The most obvious thing was the .74 string gets smaller WAY before the tuners, even for my seven string. So playing the first fret feels extremely awkward. Second, palm muting on these things sounds hideously dirty compared my old strings or even the stock strings. I also have to agree that a .54 for the E string is very ridiculous. The only thing I'd recommend these for is softer playing or if you never play chords. Otherwise, get the D'Addario or any other 8-string set.

  • Awesome!

    As reviewed by Eric Christian on 7/25/2011

    I'm using this set on both my Ibanez RGA8 & RG2228 and they're almost perfect. The .074 has a tapered end so you don't need to drill out your tuning peg to fit the string in. Overall they're good bright sounding strings. I was buying 3 GHS Boomer packs to make this bastardized set that was .070 - .010 but then I had a bunch of leftover strings each time. Personally, I like this set for its simplicity but I think I'm gonna buy some more packs just to get the .074 but also I'm gonna get the Ernie Ball 7 string 2620 set and use the .058, .048 and .038 instead of the .064, .054 & .042.
