    Decent strings. Stayed in tune, didn't break on crazy bends...

    Only thing I didn't like was the tone. Just didn't feel right to me.

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

          Warning, if your guitar nut is not cut for the larger diameter, particularly of the low E string, damage may occur. Granted, the guitar I put these on had a plastic nut, but platic nuts are now common. It was a name brand guitar, major manufacturer we've all heard of.

          Dunlop generally makes excellent products, and I'm sure these strings are great when installed on a properly adjusted guitar. If you get them, please check to make sure all strings fit inside the nut and will move without binding. Don't make the same mistake I did and assume it would work.

          As promised.

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

          These strings do pretty much what they say on the box. They keep string tension at a lower pitch, similar to the way heavier strings would. I like Dunlop strings to began with and these are even better if you want to tune down from standard. With these strings you do not need enormous .11 or .12 gauge strings to tune way down. You won't have to mess with your guitar nut to fit in the strings, and bla bla bla. The "heavy" 10-48 are PERFECT for me playing in drop C. They feel like 10-46 gauge strings tuned into standard. I have not seen too many other brands that do this custom size. Just sliiightly thicker than regular .10s. As far as sound goes, I really don't hear any sonic differences between these and standard Dunlop .10s.

          great new strings from dunlop

          By 

          from houston, texas

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

          well, i recently switched out the strings on my les paul to the new dulop heavy core "heavy" strings (10, 13, 17, 28, 38, 48) - and i couldn't be happier. i have tried all kinds of different string configurations and i think i've finally found my perfect match. i've had everything on my LP from cleartone, d'addario, elixer, ghs, and i even had the zakk wylde icon customs from dunlop. the zw dunlop strings were the closest i could compare these too in terms of feel and quality, but i would up taking them off because i wasn't using my guitar in dropped tunings enough and i didn't need such heavy strings on the E, A, D. in terms of tone, these are amazing, imo. the d'addario's were way too bright - even on the low strings. but these dunlops give you a nice thick, warm tone, and maintain the right amount of brightness without being too twangy. the feel of the strings is fantastic as well. i really like the nickel over any of the other strings, especially ones that have a coating that breaks down. after i restrang the guitar and it barely took any stretching to get the strings 100% set - no going sharp or flat. they're right on point no matter how much i bend or move them. i did have to make a slight adjustment to the intination because of the small increase in gauge on the E, A, D strings, but it was very minor, and again, well worth it. also, there was no need to adjust the truss rod because the increase in gauge wasn't enough to bow the neck, like when i tried the zw icons. if you're looking for something new to try that will give you great performance and durability i highly recommend these.

          The lord of the strings

          By 

          from Sulphur, LA

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

          I started using dunlop strings about a year and a half to 2 years ago, and so far no other strings have matched these. I started using the Zakk Wylde signature and I was amazed with the durability and quality of the sound they could put out. I decided I'd still experiment with other strings. I can't remember everything I tried, but DR was the alternative I used the longest, and they don't measure up to any of the dunlop I've used. You will not be disappointed with these.
