    The store I got my 8 string from went out of business.They carried GHS string so I bought 2 extra sets.The D'Addarios out class them in every way.The GHS strings just died so Quick and I could not find string sets locally.Thank you for having such great strings available!

    Not much competition for 8 string bass sets. Fortunately these perform well and last a reasonably long time.
