Our Sfarzo seven string guitar strings are part of their first-class line of long-lasting strings that are especially known to consistently hold their tuning. We offer these sets for 7 string guitar players who might have a difficult time finding string sets that give you the sound you're looking for. These Sfarzo strings are made with a variety of gauge mixes for different playing styles and personal tastes. The Sfarzo nickel wound Power 7's have a bright tone, long sustain and beefy bottom punch. The Nickelanium string set features nickel/alloy strings. Both are available in different gauge varieties. The Power 7's can be ordered as Lite 54 (.009-.054), Regular 56 (.010-.056) or Blues 58 (.011-.058). The Nickelaniums come in .009-.054, .010-.056 and .011-.058 gauges. The 7 string guitar is especially popular with performers of rock, heavy metal and jazz. Jazz guitarist George Van Eps had a 7 string guitar custom made in the 1930s and a 7 string Gretsch carried his name in the 1960s and 1970s. Typically the 7th string is added to increase the bass range of the guitar's sound, and to provide additional fullness. The 7 string solid body electric was introduced in the 1980s, and gained in popularity in the 1990s. Some of the contemporary guitarists who have experimented with or regularly use 7 string instruments include Steve Vai, Matt Belamy from Muse, Stephen Carpenter of Deftones, Dream Theater, Korn, Slayer, Fear Factory and Joe Satriani. Try these high-performance strings from Sfarzo for a bright, rich sound to make your 7 string instrument come alive.
