Hello. I recently bought a 7 string guitar, and I'm LOVING it, BUT I have a few questions to you more experienced people.
1, I don't know what strings that came from factory but I suppose it probably was .10-.56, I recently changed my strings to elixir 10-46 (six string pack) and a ernie ball .60 for the A string (I play drop A). Do I have to adjust something so I don't f*** the whole guitar up with this new, thicker string? it gives some buzz, but I'm afraid to change shit I don't have a clue about :/
2, I actually want even more string tension on the strings in general, what can I do? I really don't want the A string to be thicker than .60, I had .68 once on another guitar and I HATED
The string which tension annoys me the most at the moment is the A string, I want it to be tighter, it's so hard playing fast(er) picking on it when it just "get stuck in the pick" if you know what I mean. And higher string tension in general would be good- because it's a lot more confortable for me to play fast picking parts and sweeps with higher tension/string-tightness.
So is there a specific brand of strings, thicknesses etc. that I should use? I really don't want too big strings, that's just annoying :/..
My guitar is a "ESP Horizon NT-7
Please, guitar gods, you surely have some experience with this and can give me some answers
I don't want it to be SUPER-TIGHT so I can't bend the strings at all, I just want it.. in a scale of 1-10 I want it at 8. or 9.
Thanks in advance!
