Re: 7 String Acoustic (Strings)


I'd start here - Juststrings has a pretty good selection of acoustic single strings. Buy a six string set that you like and find a single string heavy enough to use on the low B. I didn't dig around much, but I really like D'Addario EXP phosphor bronze strings, and they sell an individual 0.70 which is slightly heavier than my preferred 0.68 on an electric, but would hold up with with a .53 or so on the E.
