A while ago I heard of a company that made string sets for extended range guitars. I remember they had 8-string sets for B-E-A-D-G-B-E-A tuning (the high A was a custom made .005). The thing is I can't remember what the name of the company is. Can anyone help me out please? ?

Octave4plus do strings specifically designed for High A and such, in around the 0.05 gauges too. They also do sets, but you wont need that thin of a gauge to reach A4/G4 etc.

Yeah, I'm looking for a big ass F string for my 8er. I like tight, heavy strings and the 72 doesn't quite make the cut

I was asking the same question a month ago about who makes what. I'm surprised that there isn't a website or a utility where you type in the gauges you want and you are returned a list of sets available by brand and SKU, and sets that are close. Evidently you just have to click on everything and see if it's what you want.

I just use an 80 gauge D'addario over 28" scale at F#, enough tension for a nice clear note, they're not hard to get online and they're significantly cheaper that Octave4plus. Might be worth a look?
