Quality strings

Jevatro, 08.03.2018
I play stoner rock in Drop C tuning. These strings are perfect for the music I play. The gauge is not too heavy, so you can still bend the strings easily, but the sound is massive, just the way I like it :-)

Have been using these strings extensively for about a year now on all of my guitars, and I never had a string break *knocks on wood

Very sturdy, but okay

09.01.2016
This is kind of an outlier, so only take my review into account if you plan to use it as I did, which is for a 8(octave)-stringed bass.

It's really hard to get strings for 8 string basses, and they are expensive too. This is why it seems like a good idea to use guitar strings.

One problem is that Dunlop doesn't indicate wheter the G string is plain (p) or wound (w). At a gauge this size, I think it's not trivial. I hoped it would be w, but it is not, the G string is already plain steel.

Sound is okay, punchy, with correct bass, but nothing extra.
I was surprised to see how sturdy they are. They pulled the neck of the guitar quite heavily, I had to make adjustments.
In comparison: Now I order Ernie ball single strings for this purpuse, they don't burden the neck this much, but they are the same size!

So far they didn't wear out, I guess they would do fine on a guitar.


Again, this reveiw is only for those who consider using them as octave strings for bass - bad idea. Too much burden for the neck, and G string is plain steel.

For guitar, they sound OK.

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
