    Recently tested several renowned string brands on my 7-string fretless Thumb NT's. The Warwick Black Labels are - by far - my favorites. Especially when it comes to the stiffness and tight sound of the low B (.140) and low F# (.175) strings. Hopefully Warwick will seriously consider to release a 7-string Black Label set (.175 F#0– .140 B0– .105 E1– .085 A1– .065 D2– .045 G2– .025 C3). Of course it's not their core business, but I'm sure it would become popular among many sub-low 7-stringers.

    Yeah the black labels sound very good actually. Very close to my DR low-riders but in my case the DR last longer somehow (they also cost more so a case of convenience).
    I suppose there aren't many brands selling a .175 at all?

    For many extended range bass players it's a real struggle to find and order the sub-low gauges. It would be way more convenient to buy a well balanced set via a local dealer. The DR low-riders are great strings for sure, but even in case they'd offer .175 F#0– .140 B0– .105 E1– .085 A1– .065 D2– .045 G2– .025 C3– it's going to be quite expensive.
