Great Strings

By Brian

from Gresham Oregon

Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings - Heavier Gauge:

I have been using these strings for around 3 years, never had one break, they stay in tune and I have never had one uncoil as some other users have. I love these strings. I will never buy another any thing else. Every time I restring these are my go to string set.

Not worth buying again

By Nick

from Hebron, KY

Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings - Heavier Gauge:

Alright, I'm going to start this off by saying that the only reason I bought these strings in the first place was that I could get them for free with the five dollars a month with the string club. These strings didn't seem that bad when I first put them on, but they wore out incredibly quickly. Within a week the strings sounded dead and muted, and they seem to corrode rather easily. I have not however had a string break on me, even after gigging every day for an entire week. I don't think I'm going to ever buy these (or any Dunlop strings) again because you can find better strings for the same price.

Poor quality, decent sound.

By Tanner Nolen

from West Jordan, Utah

Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings - Heavier Gauge:

I bought these strings as a recommendation from one of the GC workers. They are good sounding. I really do like the tension and sound of them. I jump around anywhere from drop C to drop B flat before they feel too loose and floppy. They have good range and good sound. These strings are not reliable though. I can usually keep a set on for 2 weeks approximately before my bottom E string (6) snaps. The core snaps and leaves the winding to deal with. I thought maybe I got a bad pair. I have had it 4 times now and they have made it to 3 weeks at their longest lifespan. I would not recommend these strings for anyone on a budget. They have good price, but not if you have to buy them more often than normal strings.

Amazing but at a price

By Kody

from Osceola IN

Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings - Heavier Gauge:

First off let me say I love these strings. They sound amazing no matter what tuning you put them in and always have a nice crunch when you play heavy stuff. I play lot of hardcore songs like Asking Alexandira to Bullet for My Valentine and I love these strings. It takes a while to get used to the feel of them because of the tension in drop tunings but once you do you'll love them. But I've bought about 5 packs of these because my lower strings keep coming uncoiled. And it's not only me that's having the problem. My bandmate has had to buy a couple of these packs too. So if you buy some make sure you buy a spare pack.

love these strings

By trevor tapia

from tacoma, Washington

Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings - Heavier Gauge:

i play stuff like Of Mice & Men, Attack Attack! and Scary Kids Scaring Kids. these strings are PERFECT for Drop C#. the heavy core and heavy gauge make single note breakdowns delicious. easy enough to bend, and excellent brightness. Ive been through heavy dunlops, ghs boomers, blue steel etc. these knock them all out. a heavy core keep the notes from wavering if you strum a hard chord, but they're a light enough gauge that your fingers wont get tired trying to riff around or bend a squeal out.
