Don from D'Addario here - in an effort to better dial in new string sets, we've put up a Survey, asking for your insight. What guitars are you using? What Tunings are you most using? Gauges, etc -
Our focus here is on 7 and 8 string players. Our goal is to introduce some new sets later this year and with some guidance, we'd like to have the sets accommodate as many players as possible. We know that this isn't going to please everyone as there are far too many scale lengths, tunings and preferences to factor.
If you'd like to share your thoughts - you can do so here --> http://bit.ly/1E2qTbd
Good to see you posting up here again. Oddly enough, I've bought two sets of NYXL's and a single 7th recently (one just showed up today actually for my other guitarists 7), so good timing
EDIT: Filled in.
EDIT2: As I also couldn't add a comment like Cam mentioned, my only gripe is a find the 7th's just a TINY bit too loose. Normally I'd live with this on the 25.5" as it's only going from .059 to .060, but I usually get the 9.5-44 + a single 56 over the 9-42+54 set.. Although if there was a 9-42+56 set option I'd no doubt go with that. I've gotta buy a 6 set + single either way with the NYXL's
