7-string set w/gold windings

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Gut_Implosion, Oct 24, 2004.


  1. Does anyone know what brand makes a 7-string set with gold windings? The guy I'm buying my GT-7 off has it strung with a new set of strings with gold windings, and said that they only cost him around $50, and I know that the Snakeskins by Conklin and the SIT 7-string sets run for about $70 a set, so I was wondering if anyone had any clue as to who makes these strings.

    This is where I get my strings from. They have some gold strings from a company that starts with "M" (can't remember the name).

    The great thing about JustStrings is that you can order single strings. I use DR's on my Stingray and boomers on my GT-7. GHS has a HUGE selection on that site and the great thing is that you can order a "custom" set of strings for your seven with whatever gauges you want for about $35.

    And no, I don't work for either of these companies. :D

    Dean Markley made some for bill dickens, i don't know if they are available to everyone yet. 50 bucks sounds like baloney to me, if they are the ones i'm thinking about. they were coated with gold.
     
  5. Those are the Will Lee sigs. Markley makes them. Should be able to pick them up on the net.

    If I remember correctly TBer Dave Grossman has gold cover nylon core strings on his hanwinkel 7, perhaps the same company makes steel cores.

    Edit: Sorry, just found the thread, it's a 6er not a 7 string. Ignore this post.
