        Comments about Ernie Ball 2730 Cobalt 7-String Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

        I put these on my dean ml modifier with a 25.5 inch scale in drop b. nice and tight with a little more output than normal strings. I actually had to lower the bridge pickup to not be so harsh. they feel a little weird at first, but after a couple hours of playing they soften up. the 62 feels like a 65. I used to use extra heavy dadarrio with a 65 but these work great in drop b. try em out!

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2730 Cobalt 7-String Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

          I'm new to the cobalt string world, but after listening to the product demos and doing some research, I picked up a set to re-string my Ibanez Universe. Once I plugged the guitar in, it came alive! The cleans are crisp and bright with a lot of response and depth. Kicking on the distortion, the attacks are loud and the tone is clear. I could not be happier with these strings, especially in Drop A tuning. Do not wait, get these strings and start really rocking out.

          Comments about Ernie Ball 2730 Cobalt 7-String Skinny Top Heavy Bottom Electric Guitar Strings:

          After adopting the 7 string guitar, I had a hybrid set I used for a long time with the 6 string ST/HB pack and a .65 bass string for the top and I loved it. Once the cobalts came out, I tried them and really enjoyed them. After I got my Music Man, these were available and I snagged a set. I've been playing in Drop G with the 62 and it holds up well, a little too loose for my taste. I'm usually a half step up to G# and that is extremely stable and crisp. They sound amazing through the piezo as well and they last longer than my other sets although I have switched all my guitars over to the cobalts.

          I definitely recommend giving them a shot! It's a perfect set for me and what I'm looking to accomplish with my tone.

            Searching for 7 strings, can be expensive and time consuming. I bought a pack of these and.... they're just awesome! Try them NOW!
