I think it's a Lo Pro, but it could be an original edge too. Any metal strings will work.

Re: what kind of Tremolo our on a uv7bk?

I would stay away from the 7-string packs, at least i've never found a good set. Only kind I've ever seen was daddario 9-52, you do not want a 52 on for your B, way too flimsy if you wanna play anything heavy. So what I do is get a regular pack of strings like 9-42 and then get a 56 or 58 for the B. 54 isn't really that bad either, just somethin about that 52 that i hated.

You tune it like a normal guitar. strings 6-1 you tune E to E. What comes before the high E string? The B string; so the same would come before the low E

If you use a 56 or 58, you'll have to calibrate your trem again. UV's come per default setup for a .52-.009 setup. If you don't know or don't dare to do this yourself, it means spending money on a professional setup.

Ah! I forgot! D'Addario and Ernie Ball (and others) have standard 7-string packs available. I use D'Addario 7-packs for my UV. They're .52 - .009 typically. I think they work OK, especially if you use the whammy for phrasing a lot like I do. A .56 or .58 for B will change the response (in tuning and response) of your regular strings a lot when using the trem.

Regards,
