Great tone, great tension.
July 6, 2014
I use this along with a super light top/reg bottom d'addario set (9-46) along with a .62. holds the tension of low F# down to low E just great. The tone is clear and bright and tight. However the machine head on my guitar isn't large enough to fit an .80 and the taper wasn't quite long enough to fit around the peg without excessive wraps. This may not be the problem for all guitars, but unwrapping a little bit of the string was necessary to be able to feed enough slack in. This was painless and quick and this did not affect tone or tension. Definitely recommend this for any 8 string guitar.

I use this for a Low F string on a 25.5" 8-string guitar. Works great!
Low E Tuning
March 11, 2011
This string has good tension tuned down to low E (an octave lower than standard tuning) on my 8 string. It fits nicely with the 10-59 7 string pack. I only had to drill out my tuner a tiny amount b/c the guitar came stock with a .074.
