My favoured strings for Eb standard and down to open or drop C tunings, artist guitars has the best price and quick shipping.

Sounds Great On Artist 7 String!

Bought these to replace 6 strings on my Artist 7 string guitar and then got a 70 gauge to put on the top string and it all sounds amazing. They sound very heavy in any tunning and are great quality. Fast shipping as always from the guys.

These are great quality strings, especially for drop D tuning. Unlike other sets, the unwound G string is the perfect gauge - not too heavy not too light, great strings and Artist Guitars post them out real quick too. AAA+++
