I like them

Aside from the typo on the back of the box, the strings are amazing. I had to drill out my tuning peg to fit the bottom string and I am getting used to the light high strings. But the e didn’t break when I was installing it. That is a great sign right from the start.

Great custom set of strings.

I’ve been experimenting with string gauges the last few months. 9’s were too delicate for my play style and and 10’s were too stiff on higher strings. This was the only set that didn’t have too beefy of an 8th string, nice chonky middle strings and bendable higher strings.

One big note for change is that the taper on the 8th string didn’t fit the machine head hole, luckily I had a spare .74 on hand.

Solved my 8 string problem!

I had been using the Ernie Ball 10-74 set forever on my 25.5 inch scale 8 string. Always felt that there was too much tension and it made the guitar harder to play. I did not want to go up to 80 and and have trouble using 10’s for standard tuning, so the Bulb set was an obvious choice.


I haven't gotten to try them yet as my 8 string hasn't come in but I've been using the 6 and 7 sets since horizon devices started providing them and haven't used anything else since. I always know when I get a set from here that I'm gonna be happy
