Overview

Dunlop Zakk Wylde Incon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings were developed to withstand the punishment of the reigning king of metal guitar. Extensive engineering and critical road testing by Zakk himself perfected an electric guitar string formula to work under the heaviest hands in rock. Zakk Wylde Signature Strings were designed around Dunlop High Tension technology with a bulked-up core wire for less breakage, long-life, and better definition and pitch retention at lowered tunings. Gauges .010, .013, .017, .036, .052, .060

Worth the bleeding fingers...

By JaxonWithAnX

from Shredderland

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

I have the old Zakk Wylde GHS's. Then he moved to dunlop, but their pretty much the same strings. I got them cuz the action on my ESP M-1000 was so low it was all buzz, so i moved up a few gauges. They tore up my fingers at first, and pinches were reeeeeeeally hard to do. after a half a week (About, give or take) it was like home. I recommend these for all my fellow Drop C-ers.

BEST for Metal

By stupidman

from Union, MO

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

Well, I'm not the most experienced player, but I've used a few different string types, like GHS and D'Adarrio, and I prefer these strings the most. I'm in a death metal band and I tune down to Bb standard. These strings sound amazing. I play Drop C sometimes, and they sound fantastic in Drop C. So, anything that has to do with lower tuned strings, this is what you need. They stay in tune very well. The tension still amazes me at Bb. Sometimes I tune to G#. And they still sound amazing. Well, all in all, these are amazing. If you haven't tried these out and you play metal, then you need to try these. they sound great!!!

Zakk Wylde's Wild Strings

By Chris Farrar

from Boston, Ma

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

clean, crisp and pure awesome. Believe it or not, pinch harmonics are so clear on the fat a and e strings, that it just blows your mind. Depending on what you're used to, it may take a few days to get used to these nice heavy strings, but its definitely worth it!

Perfect For Dropped Tunings

By Patrick

from Lodi, CA

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

Let me start off by saying I did not buy these because of the association with Zakk Wylde. I did so because of the somewhat standard sized G, B, and high E strings packaged with the super thick low E, A, and D strings. I play mostly in Drop C and I found that with the thicker string packs (.13-.56) my bends and tapping were a little more difficult after a few hours of practice on the top 3 strings. This set completely took care of that while still having plenty of tension and great sound for metal.

quite possibly the best guitar strings ever

By steven kenney

from Fort Worth

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

First let me start off saying these guitar strings ROAR!!!! i used to play ernie ball regular slinkys but i wanted something a little thicker and just out of curiosity i bought these strings, thank god i did these are much better you need to try these if u havnt already the sound quality is AMAZING!!!! Dont let the extra thick gauge make you think that these arent right for you the tension is actually slinky enough to do everything i did with ernie ball regular slinkys. i play in standard a lot and these strings feel great, but in drop tunings these things SCREAM, BUY THESE STRINGS NOW!!!!!

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

Love these strings. They're the best for playing all Zakk's songs. Perfect for the harmonics and string bends that he does. Haven't broke one string yet and i play hard. Last forever, durable and good price. You will not be disappointed if you buy these.

Great for almost any tuning!

By Ryan Jordan

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Dunlop Zakk Wylde Icon Series Custom Electric Guitar Strings:

I use a Dean Vendetta and needed some strings that can play from Standard all the way to Drop A. These strings are simply amazing! They stay in tune pretty great for me compared to the stock strings I had on.
