Excellent quality

15.03.2017
As an original punk, my base guitar is and has to be extremely cheap and as a result, it was always difficult to maintain a stable tuning, especially on the E-snare, which was even worse when playing drop D. With these strongs, however, not only the sound is crisp and clear, but also extremely stable. Punk or not, it is always annoying when the deepest sounds are slightly off tune. With these strings, this is no longer the case.I simply love em.

Perfect for deep tunings

29.05.2016
I use the strings on a Japan jazz bass copy from the 70s for Drop C (CGCF) and Standard C # (C # F # BE) Tunings mainly in Stoner Rock.


handling:

Despite the relatively low string strength, the DR Dropdown Strings keep the tuning perfect, and even the 2 full-tones lower E-string has a pleasant string pull and is not too "labberig", as it is accustomed from normal string sets at deep tunings.

sound:

Personally, the sound, especially for the above-mentioned style, is very much true.
I would describe him as pleasantly earthy, but not mumpy / dull.
Finally, my bass has a good penetration power with lower tuned songs and has a good articulation even in the deep locations.
For other strings, I always felt that at the deep sounds only mud comes over.

Longevity:

The strings have neither a remarkably long nor a remarkably short life.
The initial brilliance flies like 3-4 hours of play. Afterwards they keep the sound described above for a while, until a change of strings is pending.
I change the strings approximately every 2-3 months with almost daily use and 1-2 gigs a month.


Due to the very strong string pull, it is advisable to adjust the string, neck and bridge for tuning in order to prevent damage to the instrument and ensure an optimal playing feeling.

Conclusion:
I can recommend the DR Dropdown Strings to anyone who is looking for a pleasant string pull and good voice resiliency with drop tunings and, for reasons of playing, do not want to fall back on too high string strengths.

Meanwhile my standard string set for drop tunings ...
