Tapered End .085″ String for .strandberg* Bridge
Tapered end string for use with .strandberg* EGS Bridges, when the double-wound portion of the string near the ball end goes beyond the 2.5 mm (.100″) limit of the .strandberg* bridge.
We noticed after having our guitars in trade shows, where they would get extensive play and handling by various people, that with conventional strings, in particular the 8th string of our 8-string demo guitars would go completely dead like a piece of yarn after only a few days of play. We asked around among 8-string guitarists, and they said that this is completely natural and expected.
Refusing to accept this, we set about on an R&D project together with our partner GHS Strings, and after extensive testing we came up with a combination of two wraps of different alloys (stainless steel/nickel) that provides not only longer life, but better tone and tuning stability. Combine with any other brand for better tone where it means the most.
The .084″ is what we use in our .strandberg* Optimized Tension Strings and comfortably handles drop E on the Boden 8 28″ scale. With the new .095″, feel free to drop that further down to C!
These strings are also great additions to your 9-string projects, of course.
