John Pearse B11th 8-string set
November 3, 2011
These are very good strings but instead of a .026 plain string for the fourth string (F#), a .026 wound string should be provided to give better tone and sustain. A .026 plain is just too stiff and thick for good tone. Personally, I would prefer a .042w to allow for tuning the seventh string to "A" note instead of the currently provided .048w for an "F#" note. Just my personal preference and I know there are a number of different ways to tune those bottom 3 strings for the B11th tuning. Thanks for making a B11th set available.
