Comments about Dunlop NPS 8-string Electric Guitar Strings (10-74):

I have never been a huge fan of Dunlop strings based on a single experience I had on a single guitar some 6 years ago. The same strings but for a 6 string set came out of the package with some rust and broke within hours of setting them up. Since I've recently purchased an 8 string I was willing to give anything a try in an attempt to find my ideal tone and feel. These strings by all means blew my expectations out of the water. I figured for the cheapest 8 string set these would be very poor quality strings and I could eliminate them from the large list of options for an 8 string set. When I received these strings by mail I wanted to go ahead and strap them on and tune them up. They tuned relatively quickly and did take about an hour of playing time to actually break in and reach their sweet spot. I would say for tone and feel these strings are slightly above average. Price is exceptional. Life span and tuning stability are both slightly under par. I am not much of a hard picker but I would notice that for certain songs if I was really focusing on the low B string or even the F# from time to time they would go out of tune after a song or two. Overall not bad at all for the price range but not absolutely ideal. In my opinion you should get what you pay for and these being the cheapest set of 8 on the market you get more than what you pay for which merits the 4/5 star rating.

    Comments about Dunlop NPS 8-string Electric Guitar Strings (10-74):

    My 8 string is an ESP h-308.

    I have used Ernie Ball 8 string slinkies, their .74 string fits.

    I have used D'Addario EXL140 Light Top Heavy/Bottom 8-String sets, their .74 string fits.

    The sound of these Dunlops is very good, but I can't again order an eight string set and only get seven usable strings :(
