    What do you use?
    I just got a Conklin GT7 and the strings are fine, but I figured I'd have to change the strings eventually.....
    Besides Conklin do many manufacturers make 7string bass string sets?

    well, i don't play 7 string bass, but after doing a little research, i see that ken smith makes 7 string sets.

    You can make yourself a set from singles. It also might be cheaper doing this thas buying from a brand.

    I also think DR does custom sets, I saw a 7 string set on ebay a while ago which were a set of DR Highbeams. The guages were funky so I dont remember them really, I rthink the B string was like a .137. I'm sure if you email DR they'll give you a quote.

    hey, anthony:
    one thing to watch for on yer conk: the saddles do wear, and they get sharp.
    i'm starting to break strings on mine on a regular basis...i'm gonna have to bite that ol' bullet and replace the saddles.
