Timeless quality
ndomuz, 23.06.2020
Basically I have tried and used almost every brand of strings but somehow I always end up using Daddario. I use them on a regular basis on my main guitar and it's what you'd expect out of a guitar string.

They bend quite nicely and the eq curve to me sounds pretty flat in a good way so you don't loose any specific frequency too much when they get dirty and old. What I've always liked about Daddario in general is the consistent quality and behaviour of the string regardless if it's the first or hundredth set.

I only wish they'd last longer but since they're not coated it's what you get.

Winner for C-standard on Gibson scale
Romas, 05.01.2018
I am using this set on my Ghost Fret (Gibson scale with 628 mm (24.75 in), EX type body) guitar. I tune it to C-standard (2 whole steps down).
Tension wise it is normal, but might be on a higher side for all solo-oriented people. However here is the main point of these strings - these maintain adequate tension and good intonation; fret buzz is diminished and overall feel is much more controlled.
It is important to understand that we are talking 60% feel and 40% sound here. I mostly play melodic hi-gain metal stuff (think of older Swedish death metal). I am a rhythm guitarist and having strings which retain percussive feel on the thicker strings is important.
Thinner strings are alright: plain 3rd is at the verge of having this flabby "ployyynk" sound open (you know what I mean) but it is still very serviceable. 1st and 2nd are "ok" for infrequent soloing that I would do, but for someone more prone to that, especially with bending in mind, I would swap 1st to .10.
Overall, it is a great value set, durable and lasting a month or more depending on how much you chug.

Excellent for B, C and drop B tunings.
Levy, 30.10.2017
In the end I found my string set for C tuning. Tension is a little bit high for my jackson RR but it has an excellent tone and intonation. I strung them more than a month ago. They are still in good condition....

I love Daddario
Rat9, 07.09.2020
I love these strings for drop B tuning on a standard scale guitar. These could also work for drop C but that low 60 might be a little too thick
