    I've searched all over for a set of seven-string flatwounds but I can't seem to find any. I'm currently using Conklin Snakeskins

    I would love to find some snakeskins that are flatwound..any suggestions? :meh:

    There's a guy in England who will put together custom sets for you, and I bet he'd do a 7-string flat set. You might pay a bit more, especially with the exchange rate where it is right now, and you may have to buy a minimum of 3 or 4 sets (I'm not sure), but it's worth looking into.

    The site doesn't list all the options, but they say on there that they will do custom gauges, and I've ordered custom roundwounds from them. Pretty good strings IMO, though I haven't tried the flats.
