ok, so i'm thinking about purchasing a 7 string schecter diamond series (i think an Omen?) but it comes with stock strings. i am going to be playing in drop b (and drop a occasionally), but what would be a good recommended pair of strings to pick up before hand?
i play d'addario .10 - .60 and those strings stay tense real well with the drop tunings.
dont get a schecter for drop B on a 7 string, they're 26.5" scale and that will make the strings way too tense (for my personal taste anyway). Only play in B standard or lower on a 26.5"+ scale guitar (even with .008 strings, it will still be terrible). Just get either a pack of 7 string guitar strings or get a regular pack (9's or 10's) and grab a .054-.060 gauge string for the 7th string
