    They are all I play now... I use the powerflats and SS Rockbrites. I played their nickelwounds as well and they were very nice. The SS's last longer than anything else I've played and they are very musical sounding, IMO.

    There's a whole sub-forum for strings, BTW. I'm sure a mod will be moving this shortly... A search there might reveal more. ;)

    SIT Rocks and the guys at SIT aren't bad either.

    SIT's are all we use on our Benavente's and LEJ's!

    Reverend specifies SIT on their stuff, and I like 'em...
     
  5. Bases on Brian Barrett's recommendation I switched to SIT and I like them a lot.

    They come standard issue on American made G&L's. I tried a few other brands on my L-2500, but came back to SIT's. They have a nice sound and last a long time. I get them at Just Strings

    I see that they do have 8 string sets.
     
  10. They're all I use now. They are great. A little brighter and not as sticky as GHS Pressurewounds... If you get a chance to try them you'll like them... :D
