R
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....

They're okay but not special

If you're looking for strings for drop B, like I did, you'd be better off served with 13-62 from the same company as those are much better strings. These strings are better fit for drop C, and even at that tuning, the low C string feel floppy. These also don't last as long -- I use regular D'addarios 10s on my guitars in standard so I could compare - these sound good only for a day or two then they dull out. Was really disappointed with the sound quality and longevity of these.

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.
