    D'Addarrio makes a 7 string roundowund set. I am interested to know who else - I am interested in half-wounds for my 7 string.

    A couple more are Dean Markley SR2000's and Ken Smith Taper Core stainless roundwounds.

    Yes, but they are just Dean Markley 2000s (Will Lee Set) in a different package. At least, according to JT--And, I think I'll trust JTs opinion on anything Conklin. :D
     
  6. I buy 5 string sets when they are on sale and order the "C" and "F" string. If you but several sets at a time and order 3 or more of the top two strings you can get the guages and strings that that you like for a cheaper price.

    This is how I get my TI Jazz flats with a High C, as well. I just order 4 string sets, and a couple high Cs at the same time.

    I'd love to hear a 7 string with flats.

    when i got my fretless 8 from bill, it came with the top 7 of the 8 strings fretless dean markley sr2000s . i still have them, they were pretty cool, but i like the bright roundwound sound on my fretlesses.
