I LOVE these strings!

By Mark EASTON

from Willimantic, CT

Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Light:

I've been playing for almost 50 years, and I've tried almost every brand of string there is. A lot of times I had to mix and match to get the gauges I wanted. I tried these on a whim, and out of my respect to a truly GREAT guitarist! As I'm older now, I find that lighter gauge strings suit my playing better, especially doing multiple, LONG sets. These strings have stood the test, delivering GREAT tone throughout the life of the strings, gig after gig, session after session, lasting longer than ANY other string I've used. And they stay bright and full, giving I expect from good strings. I HIGHLY recommend these strings!

Best strings I ever played!

By Vincent Solimine

from Hollbrook, NY

Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Light:

Everybody has their own preference when it comes to strings so for what it's worth...If you play or want to try a set of 8s then try these for sure. Also consider the gauge of the other strings in the set since they are different than other "light" or 8 sets out there. In fact, they make a set of 9s as well so if that's your preference I would say give those a try. The packaging is excellent ensuring a quality product. The feel and sound are top notch. They last longer, stay cleaner, and stay in tune better than anything else I have played.

Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Light:

Billy Gibons from ZZ Top signature strings. I have arthritis so I play .007 & .008 guage strings. These are the only .007s I have found. They are the best strings I have ever played and I've never broken a string. Outstanding sound and feel.

    Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Light:

    I first off got the 7's on whim just to see what the fuss was about. They were good strings but just too easy to overplay on. So I got some 8's and they were just about as perfect a match for what I play. They bend easy and with locking tuners they keep in tune. They are wonderful on necks with fat frets. The 7's did tend to break at times tuned to 440. The 8's so far have not broken yet. They produce great tone as well.

    I have played Guitar for over 50 years. I am a blues player and have played in the Chicago Blues Festival as well as all over the country. If I was designing a set of strings this is exactly how I would want them. These are the best strings I have ever played. The sound - The feel - I will never be without them.
