The first thing you notice with DR Drop-Down Tuning Bass strings is how stable they are. DDT strings maintain their intonation at lower tunings far better than other strings you may have played or heard. Players say these bass strings are so stable it is almost eerie.
Now you can "stand and deliver" in-tune notes at lower pitches that are clean and clear-plus you can drop tune with confidence and accuracy. You'll be surprised how few adjustments you'll make to change tunings and will be even more surprised how well DR Drop-Down Tuning strings lock into tune. DR
Experienced players comment: "Tuned down, I was never able to play a favorite riff. It always came out muddy and garbled. Now it is crystal clear. I am going to record it and give it to my bandmates, who could not hear it before."
DR DDT strings deliver far more than just heavy gauges-they deliver impeccable bass tone.
5-String Heavy gauges: 55-75-95-115-135.

If you want real, true bass, these strings are the ultimate delivery! Not for wanna-be guitar slingers; these Golden Gate Bridge cables require some actual grip-strength, but they'll rock the woofers and boom-cannons in the car trunks of generations yet to be conceived! I don't drop-tune to play, but these strings are priceless nonetheless; they maintain impeccable resonance, intonation and pitch for conventional performance. Additionally, even though their package says "regular", they ARE long enough to fit a 35-inch neck scale, as they did on my Schecter Stiletto. One advisement to potential buyers: initial modification to the bridge and nut of your 'axe may be required for the installation of these strings, because of their thickness; my humble personal opinion is that the effort is worth the result.
I found these strings to be a distinct improvement for my Musicman Stingray-V. The B string tension and response is solid. The G string response is much more prominent than any other sets I've used. Also, you would have to be a gorilla to break these strings. The only down side was the need to increase the neck truss rod tension to counteract the added tension that these thicker strings produce. Therefore, these strings may not be suited for some basses. I will definitely keep using them. They are an improvement over the DR High Beams and the other brands out there.
These strings stay in tune better than almost every other string out there. I have always been a fan of DR strings, but these are the best ones that DR has on the market hands down.
