i just got an agile 828 bloodburst and i love it, except for one thing. i wanted the extended scale because i heard it provides better string tension but when i got it the strings where just too loose for me especially on the low strings. will thicker gauges fix that? i hve .009 .012 .015 .022 .030 .040 .054 .072 and i want to use drop tuning to play after the burial, periphery type stuff, what companies make good 8 string sets? also i know octave4plus has a good high A string but how is the rest of the set

I had the same exact problem. The strings that come stock on them are NOT what they say they are. I use .09-.059 on my 7 strings, and the .069 was visably THICKER than the 8th string on my Agile 8. Buy a set of d'addario 9-59's and add a .072 bass string (It barely fits). And you'll see that your string tension will be GREATLY improved. I don't know what they're putting on their guitars, but they are a lot lighter than 9's, that's for sure!

Move up to .010 - .074 if you need them to be tighter for down tuning. I used the above set at a 1/2 step down and it felt great.

AHHH MOTHERLAND!

All hail soviet Arktanistan-Groffistan!

Yeah. The thicker the gauge, the lower the string resonates, so thicker strings = more tension (in the same tuning).

Also, I don't think there is an string set, You just have to buy the gauge you want individually, for the B and F# strings at least. I'd get a standard 6 string pack that I like then buy the other two as singles.

After the Burial only uses 9-74 and that's on the 27in scale...

LaBella can make you any gauge though just call Leo and put in an order for custom HRS

Will a Agile Intrepid Pro Dual 828 MN NA fit into a Douglas EGC-200 Baritone Case?
because this Douglas EGC Intrepid Case is out of stock and not listed on rondomusic at all.

Anyone see the new 6 string Intrepids? They look really nice, though 6 strings are sort of irrelevant to me as far as electrics go haha.

And I just saw the thread about it but the new ghostburst pro is ....ing sweet! Only if it came in left handed...

Recommend me a Agile (I hate you RGA8!)

Looking for a Agile that is comparable to a RGA8 minus the muddy pups. Need some recommendations. Looking for a djenty sound i.e. Meshuggah, Tesseract, Vildhjarta. More of a rhythm player (the one string master F# clarity ). Please no actives!

Got a POD 2 and UX1.

Budget 750. HELP!

You could just get some good passive pickups and install them in some EMG style covers, they are available on the net, I don't have a link to where though.

Also, there really isn't an Agile to recommend, if you go to the site, they're all just variations on 2 body shapes, and it's either EMG, Blackout or passive stock pickups for choices.

It's pretty damn thick. But you'll adjust.

If I didn't just buy my Pendulum 8 I'd for sure own an Intrepid 8 Dual. Played my buddy's extensively though.

It's no Schecter, that's for sure. My hands are somewhat average in size but I found the neck extremely comfortable. I think you'd really like it.

Agile Intrepid Pro Dual 828 MN Bloodburst at RondoMusic.com

Definantly liking this one. The neck thru looks sick. 28.825 is pretty awesome too. How are the passives? Was thinking of getting some BK Coldsweats with it. Just wondering if the stock pups are ok, would not mind sticking with those.
