My personal favs

By JAMES SAVINO

from Rochester NY

Great set of wire here. I was one of those guys for the longest time that felt as though all high quality strings for the most part sounded the same, they just all had different tensions and feel... well I was wrong. I first noticed this when I got my first guitar with Active pick ups. Active pick ups put different magnet tension on your strings than passive pickups do, and some strings simply do not sound good with active guitars. This does not seem to apply to passive they all work. Well Dunlop works great for active and passive guitars. Dunlop strings feel amazing... the winding's are sort of like a grip tape on there... this may sound weird but you need to feel them for your self. for hard rock it comes down to the Dunlop Heavy Core, or Ernie ball strings for me... Ernie has a bit more of a bottom end, but the Heavy Cores have a big bottom, with more mids and harmonics. I like standard nickel wound Dunlop too but the heavy cores really do hold a better tension at low tuning, and have that bigger bottom for metal. If you like Ernie ball I highly recommend you try a set of these. Not to mention the packaging is the best in the business. Heck each single pack even comes with a sticker! They settle in after putting them on faster than any string I've ever tried, and the 10-48 is a very different gauge. I have no seen many sets with these sizes. I was able to play in drop C with these strings, but my favorite tuning for this particular set is drop C#. can't say enough about them, grab a set guys you really need to try em.

Outstanding strings for special applications

By Joel Brothers

from Charsworth, Ga.

I am a full-time pro guitarist, and play classical, acoustic and electric guitar, on solo shows. I used to hate having to hook up and tune up 4 or 5 guitars for every show, so I bought a Behringer Acoustic Simulator, and now just use my Gibson ES-135 (with a Bigsby Trem) onstage for everything from oldies Rock and Roll to Finger-style. I also like my guitar tuned down 1/2 step. I have to say, these strings are the best I have ever used. When using the Acoustic Simulator, they have a beautiful mellow ring that sounds a lot like the old Guilds (pre-Fender), for a near perfect acoustic sound. They also sound great played straight...nice and balanced, not clangy, and have a great feel. The sound can range from smooth and jazzy, to nice and edgy for a country twang (although not as much as a Tele or Strat}, depending on how you EQ. And the tension is perfect for finger-style, even tuned down 1/2 step. They feel smooth and lively without being 'mushy'. They work very well with my Bigsby Trem. I'll be buying a lot more of these.

Dunlop Heavy Core

By Nick Mardon

from Seattle, Wa

These are the best strings our there. I play power metal, Thrash Metal, Death Metal, and Neoclassical Shred and these strings stand up to it all. One set lasts about 3 months and I play 10 hours or more each week.

Great for standard tuning!

By MICHAEL CENEDELLA

from Webster, MA

I was avoiding writing a review for fear of giving away one of my secret weapons, but I want to make sure they sell enough of these to continue to offer them! I like the way these feel in standard E to E tuning; nice tension for rhythm playing without feeling like bridge cable, and slinky plain strings. I find that the larger core diameter of the wound strings makes for less of a sonic difference between the wound and the plain strings; they have more of a similar "ring" in this set. The smaller wrap diameter makes for a smoother feel, too. The wounds are nice and bright without being overly so, and as they age they still maintain a nice tone. They work well for Fender and Gibson scale lengths, fixed-bridge and floating. Buy some - but try not to tell EVERYONE...

Best for thrashers!

By Mac Mann

from Madison WI

If you love thrash metal, death metal, death core, screamo, ect. Get these strings now! you don't even need to get them in the 6 pack they are so durable! I bought a 6 pack a year and a half ago and I still have 2 sets left. They are perfect for shredders and major benders they can take it all. You'll need a new guitar before you need new strings when you have these!
