The first thing you notice with DR Drop-Down Tuning Guitar 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 DR DDT guitar 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.

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 tone.

Big-Heavy gauges: 10-13-17-36-52-60.

Defective string replacement.

A good gauge for the down-tuned lead guitarist

By Jeffrey Swanson

from Denver, CO

I bought a set of these along with the Dunlop Zakk Wylde set in the same gauge. These are far and away much better. I generally either play in C# standard tuning (C#, F#, B, E, G#, C#) or Drop B (B, F#, B, E, G#, C#) and these puppies are great, the top strings hold just enough tension to allow for fairly heavy alternate picking, but loose enough for very easy bending. the bottom strings are great for holding tension at even drop B and allow for some very heavy handed technique. I play a lot of Iced Earth style rhythm guitar licks and that 52 gauge A string is just awesome for that stuff.

Got these today and love them. Like it says on the box, they lock in fast and break in easly. They stay in tune well and good for drop A or b. not much for C, might be to tight for drop C. Get these, they are the best.

Great Drop B strings

By Tim

from Durham, NC

I put a set of these on my ESP LTD EC-1000 (24.75 scale length) so that I could play around with drop B and not have the strings go all floppy on me. These turned out to be perfect! Strings feel tight and I have no string buzz! The highest I've tuned these is D Standard, I felt tuning any higher would make the strings snap, or worse... Even with D standard I could bend the strings with relative ease. I did have to drill the hole in tuning peg on the 6th string a little bit wider to fit the .60 though.
