    7 stringers -

    i've searched the forums and didn't get any hits on this, so i'll ask here:

    any thoughts on what the best "f" string out there is?

    i've only seen the Conklin Sidewinders, and a search of the D'Addario site came up zero -

    i use D'Addario Prisms on my 6, and was looking to make it an E to F six for experimenting -

    thanks in advance!

    Snakeskins (Conklin's brand) come in a .022 guage.

    I really like it, but might try something a little heavier.. Might want to call Conklin Guitars and talk to Bill because he can get different guages.
