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.

Unleash the thunder
Kaiviti, 20.03.2019
I'm a long time D'Addario string user on regular scale guitars and long scale bass and these are equally superb - balanced, bright but not thin sound, just sound awesome clean or overdriven. I get decent string life and very rarely break strings even though I pick hard with a very heavy pick. Tuning stability is good too and general feel is good, string handling noise is low. Reslly, you can't go wrong with D'Addario sytings in my humble opinion - also, the pack is environment friendly too.

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 for B and drop A tuning
C. v Geel, 03.12.2018
After trying several different brands and string gauges to get good string tension in B and drop A tuning on my 25,5"six string I finally gave these a shot. For me, they are perfect!

Thick enough to get good tension on all strings, but still bendable enough for solo's, although it took me a little while to really get used to it after playing on 0.10 to 0.46 for a long time. The wound G string is a big win for me too, as previous sets around this gauge with a 'normal' G string somehow caused all kinds of tuning and intonation problems for me.

Little side note: I did have to adjust the neck and the height of the bridge a tad to compensate for the larger gauge to get the intonation right and avoid 'string buzz', but that's quite common I guess.

Last but not least: the tone and durablility are quite good as well. I did a string change just recently, but before that I had these on my guitar for at least three months and while they did sound a bit more dull in the end, I had no issues with tuning or playability.
