I'm currently looking for some strings for my future 8 string, and I'm not sure about the scale length. I would like to go to 36" because I prefer tighter strings both sound and feel wise, and I'll probably need it anyway cause I'll be tuning to low F#, but my luthier said, and I know it to be true anyway, that I'll be having a hard time finding strings that fit a 36" with optional string-thru (should I decide to use it, 'cause this will be my first bridge with the option and I want to experiment and settle the string-thru myth on my part). Is anyone here using high strings, like C or F, on longer scales? Also, can anyone comment on the feel of a F on a longer scale, since I only tried a C on a 35 so far, but unlike other people I found it quite nice, maybe even a bit soft. As for the brand, I would also be thankful if someone who used Pyramid strings (they're german, I think) would share his thoughts, since so far their .020 is the only locally available F, while the low F# will probably be a warwick .175 dark lord. Oh, forgot to mention, it's gonna be a fretless with the fingerboard extending to the neck pickup.
