H8 & HB8 Strings

Anyone know a source for getting these custom bass strings?
Only found one place in China that carry them.

Re: H8 & HB8 Strings

I prefer flatwounds, so I use a set of RS77M medium scale rotosound flat bass strings 40-90, combined with a set of RS200 top tape flat guitar strings 12-52 (I use 12-32 only)

Works perfectly for me - but I don't like clanky roundwounds

Re: H8 & HB8 Strings

Went to a local music store that was a Hagstrom dealer and they ordered me some strings, but they turned out not what they were labeled as.
Was using Rotosound 66 and octave string at half gauge, using the D'Addario 8-string set right now, might go back to using a light set
