I heard many good things about DR strings from my guitar tech and other colleagues so I decided to give them a try. In over 50 years of playing, I've never had a low E string "disintegrate" while putting it on!!! It literally unwound while no pressure was being applied to it at all! The rest of the set remained intact, but they are the only strings that I have ever used, seen or heard of that make my 1970 Gibson 335 sound bad. Very dull with no definition. Perhaps I got a bad set, but I'm not anxious to try another.

Best Strings!

By eliobean

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings are amazing! They have a great sound, and are also very playable. They are much easier to bend then other strings of the same gauge. They have an amazing clean sound and an awsome distorted sound. Must have strings!

DR MT-10s

By Kiely

from Chicago, IL.

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

I really enjoy these strings One: Because their tone is superb to most other strings I have tried and Two: they last very very long, espescially in tonal quality. I have had the same set of strings on my Eastwood Airline for about 3 monthes now and they sound as if they are fresh out of the package. They are comfortable to play too. They give a heavier tone for a lighter guage string. I would definetly recomend them for anyone

Great Strings

By RiffShredder

from Medford, Or

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

I'd gone through several sets of regular Fender strings, they always seemed to get real slack, they'd hold tune, somewhat. So I went back to my roots and got DR's Medium gauge tite-fit. I'm upset i didn't do it earlier. Its nice having a string that stays where you put it when you bend and slip up or out on you. they have great sound and tone, and just ring and sing as long as you hold it. the heavier guage will take getting used to as you will have to build your finger strength. But find me a great guitar player that doesn't have strong fingers.

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

i got these strings about 2 months ago, and they are still playing like new, i gotta say they are better and last longer than GHS because by this time with GHS they were already worn out, also they have a great tone on any guitar and are good for about any type of music, i play metal, and every time, its a nice good tone, so go out and buy these right away!

Awesome set of strings

By dude

from somewhere

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

My guitar came stock with 9-42 gauge strings when i bought it but then i upgraded to these DR 10-46 electric guitar strings. These strings definitly have killer tone. My old low e string was very dull and boring but when i got these strings that string in particular was very bright and warm and so were all the other strings. I would recommend these strings to anyone who plays anything, these strings are all around awesome strings. you can play anything on these strings and you get awesome sound.

One word.. CREAMY !!

By Neal

from Tempe, AZ

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

Big props to DR for these babies.. Was using EB Regular Slinky's before on my Epi Les Paul Standard and, not that I did't like those (because I did) but these are way better.. All I have is an Epi 15W amp, but with these, you get a big creamy sound and they're spot on with distortion.. Try 'em out, you're bound to like them.. And as an added note, Trey Anastasio from Phish uses these exact same strings.. Not that I or you or probably anyone else can play like him or get his sound, but I can certainly see why he uses them..

Not one of my favorites

By GibSG61

from Nebraska

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

The thought of all that metal being compressed to a string with a light gauge enticed me. People say they are really good for bending. But when I put them on my Gibson Nighthawk, it just doesn't seem comfortable. It never really got into the feel of the strings, and it just didn't stay in tune. It wasn't a good light bend, it was harder, and just, well uncomfortable. I suggest you use Fender strings, or Gibson strings. Elixer strings (with Nanoweb) are also really high on my list. But if you're curious about this string, then by all means try it out.

There OK

By satchvai94

from sac, CA

Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

I got these strings because I wanted to try a different string than I had before. When I put them om they seemed to be Ok. Most nickle plated strings are very smooth and slippery, these were smooth but they didnt stay smooth for very long. They do not withstand rust very well, my strings were rusy in 3 days. they are no tthe best strings.

      DR > EB

      By Derek

      from Sacramento, CA

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      I just restrung my Epiphone Les Paul Special I with these strings after buying them two days ago because i wanted to try something other than Ernie Ball which was my favorite brand up until now. Besides EB, I've tried D'Addario, GHS, Dunlop and SIT but none of those strings are as good as these DR strings. These strings don;t take very long to stretch out and break in, they feel great and they sound even better. They bend pretty easy but they're also not flimsy which is a very good thing for my type of playing. I don't think I'll ever use any other type of strings besides DR from now on, plus these were my first pack on DR's and they certainly have become my favorite over Ernie Ball.

      They break...a lot

      By Chris Murphy

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      First time ever using DR strings. Always used Ernie Ball, just wanted to try something different. I bought several packs. Never had so many strings break in practice ever. First went the high E. Then the B. Then the G. Then the D. Then back to the B. This was over the course of 3-4 practice, lost a string each practice, two one night. Never happened to me before. The band is like..."what's up?" Maybe I got bad batch or something, but bye bye DR's, not throwing good money after bad. Ernie Ball, sorry I doubted you.

      Not Impressed. Keep Breaking

      By Ryan Alvidres-Ivie

      from San Diego, CA

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      I went through two sets of these after my friend recommended them to me and boasted about how amazing they were. I had been using Ernie Ball Slinky sets and was still a fairly new player at the time, so I was trying to discover my sound. I put these strings on my Epiphone G-400. Tonally, the strings were pretty responsive and could really sing. However, I didn't like the fact that I had to crimp the wound strings due to the round core wire. It's just extra work, and I hate restringing as it is. Another problem: String breakage. Out of all the string brands I've tried, none of them have been as prone to breaking as DRs. Good tone shouldn't come at the cost of weak strings. Ernie Balls not only cost less, but their overall quality has been superior so far. Sorry, DR.
