.008 Gauge Electric Guitar Strings

For a guitar tone that sounds bright and full-bodied, .008 gauge electric guitar strings are a perfect choice. Extra-light strings have been used by countless legendary players over the years, including Eddie Van Halen, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page. Today, thin strings continue to be popular with anyone who loves a classic, trebly rock'n'roll guitar sound, and many of today's top guitar string manufacturers offer string sets with the .008 gauge. In this section alone, you'll find sets from the likes of Ernie Ball, Dunlop, D'Addario, GHS and Fender.

Since only the most respected brands are offered here, any one of these string sets deserve your consideration - on the first page alone you'll find one top-rated item and best seller after another. Go ahead and check out the Ernie Ball 2225 Nickel Extra Slink Electric Guitar Strings. Made from nickel-plated, steel wire wrapped around a hex-shaped steel core wire, these strings are renowned worldwide for their amazing tone. Pioneering rock'n'roll guitarists like Eric Clapton, Steve Vai and Slash are all dedicated Slinky players, and you'll understand why the moment you begin playing them.

Another string set that the .008 gauge electric guitar string can found in is the D'Addario NYXL0838 Extra Super Light Electric Guitar Strings. NYXL strings are newly engineered to be stronger. In fact, their reformulated nickel-plated string windings have bigger magnetic properties, resulting in high output and an enhanced mid-range frequency response. Or, if you're after that fat Texas tone made famous by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, look no further than the Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Extra Light. These strings deliver a huge punch while remaining soulful and articulate. No doubt, you'll be one step closer to that classic ZZ Top sound when your axe is decked out with these fantastic strings.
