Overview

Gauges 11-13-17-28-38-48.

"Dean's strings hold up and maintain their original intensity through the severe beating we give them, far better than any others we've played. Overall we like to use just a little bigger gauges. That way we get a tighter, fatter sound."

"We don't want to put extra tension on the neck that it doesn't need. Our approach is . . . bigger string, louder and a heavier sound. That's what we're about."

"We exclusively use Dean Markley strings on a custom Misfits Annihilator guitar that we designed and built ourselves. It goes through a bass amp head because it goes to a level of 90. It's got more power and gives a lot more bottom end--which helps define our sound . . . especially live."

Prepare to beat your guitar

By ninjaboy

from Summit, NJ

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

These strings are pretty much indestructible. I guarantee that you'll be unable to break them even after thousands of hours of playing. It's readily apparent that they were designed by a guitarist who ripps through strings instead of just playing them.

Great!!!

By Anonymous

from Modesto, CA

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

These strings are awesome. I've normally played light strings but when i saw these i thought they couldn't be too bad since i liked the sound of Misfits. Although i haven't had them on my guitar long, the tones are amazing and harmonics are easy to come by. Anyone looking for a good punk sound get these strings

Not just for punk or metal.

By Brandon

from Virginia

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

I play lots of stuff that borders on country to indie rock, and these strings suit me very well. The have intense treble output and tight, clear basses, the upper mids have more volme then most of the 11's I have tried which works great for me. Good tight pick attack, intense harmonic response, and rich overdrive characteristics without losing their bite or becoming muddy, thats what makes these strings kick so hard. I really don't know too much about the process Dean Markley puts into these but they fit into pretty much any style of play and accomodate standard, stepped down, and dropped tuning on guitars without feeling unbalanced. This is a great set of strings that will make you appreciate your guitar a little more.

really nice strings!

By i made an annihilator guitar

from Rhode Island

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

I switched to using these strings a while ago and i really like them a lot. they deliver a really nice sound. the beefyer gauges also allow them to take a beating and last to play and play. i actually play them on a replica guitar of the original they were tested on and they have a really nice full sound and tone.

play without a worry

By MnkyRamone

from east rutherford new jersey

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

these will not break. you will just decide that you want to do your guitar a favor and put new strings on before they break. aside from that, the sound is great. great sustain and i like the tone. i would highly recommend these to anyone who maybe plays a little too intense at times

no more slinkies

By dead on arival time to exit

from cleveland, Tennessee

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

i was looking for some slinkies and came across these and bought them just to try them. i've played slinkies for about 2 years and got these and i'm never EVER going back to the slinkies. these got a nice rough and edgy sound to them. i play rhythm guitar and the lead guitarist was getting on to me about not having a thick sounding guitar. these deffinately ended it. get them if you like the misfits or MCR or AFI.

Crunchy til the end

By Michael Montano

from Tucson Arizona

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

After years of fiddling around with several custom string sets, I came across these pieces of steel and never turned back. If you're looking for some good low end that can be ground out for hours, look no further than these Skull Busters custom gauge
