Perfect for B tuning
Andrei G , 24.10.2018
I am going to address string tension in relation to the tuning and the scale length of your guitar in my short review, I consider this a really important aspect that's often overlooked.

I use this set for B tuning on an Ibanez RG560, with a scale length of 25.5 inch / 647,7mm (Fender scale). The tension is perfect and the wound 3rd string will make your life easier when setting the intonation.

Alternatively, if you consider using them on a 24.75 inch / 628.65mm (Gibson / Epiphone) scale guitar, they're great for C standard.

Great quality as ever from D'Addario
25.02.2014
I use these on a 28 and 5/8" Warmoth necked baritone guitar and they perform just as well as D'Addario's other nickel strings. Personally, I found the 2nd thinnest string -tuned to F# (when the guitar is in standard B tuning) felt a little too light when compared to the 1st string (tuned B) and the 3rd wound string (tuned D). So I now use a plain 18 instead of the supplied 17 -but this could just be a matter of preference. Buying each string separately and making a custom baritone set would never be as cheap as buying a set like this and even after changing out the 17 for an 18 saves me money. I use 10 gauge D'Addarios on my normal guitars anyway, so can always use the extra 17 gauge strings as G strings in standard tuning. The thickest string (a 62) might be too thick to go through some tuner posts, but you can always drill/file out the hole slightly to accommodate thicker strings like these if necessary (I did this with a Schaller locking tuner and it works perfectly).

Excellent strings
luffarvante, 21.09.2021
A excellent set of strings.

Work very well with a Gibson-style guitar tuned down to C standard.
The lowest string becomes a bit too loose when doing B-standard and playing faster riffs though.

Like a piano.
Scotty B, 14.05.2021
If you aren't going to go with flats on your baritone, than these are the next best thing. These are meant for 27" to 28" scale baritones and I have them on a 27" Fender Jaguar tuned to B Standard, but could easily go down to G Standard. Low B sounds like a piano and the tension is perfect.
