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. i just mean gold windings
     
  6. 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.
