Steel thing

29.11.2016
Well, to be honest I bought these strings because of eye catching package, discount price and to try something different from my usual Markleys or d'Addarios. Firstly I was skeptical about their "higher string tension" but later they proved to raise my Floyd Rose bridge higher than eg d'Addarios of the same gauge, so you'll also most probably need tremolo bridge adjustments. The acquaintance with these Dunlop's strings line started quite badly. The first string just broke at the center of it's length, when I've accidentally bent it at almost 90 degrees angle and later tried to straighten it during installation. The same thing happened with 4th string bent at the tuning key rod. At that point I started to think the strings will be unusable at all. Luckily I was WRONG. First I noticed distinguishable sound. It has more "steel" character, than anything I've tried before, very metallic! I was slightly afraid to do bends or use tremolo, because of obvious reasons, bet later I was very surprised to find out, that strings survive 3 tone bends and heavy tremolo dive bombing! What a strange thing these strings are! I'll definitely use them in the future, because of their distinguishable metallic sound, very good for heavy music. Also after 3 months of not extremely frequent but more than moderate use they still sound very fresh, and survived 1 re-installment when I've changed a pickguard. Very recommended to at least a try for one set!
PROS ? metallic sound, lasting freshness
CONS ? attention must be paid when installing, they're a bit sensitive for handling

I've been playing heavy tunings for more than a decade and used lots of different brands of String Manufacturers. but Dunlop Heavy Core delivers Clear Treble and Heavy lows, All I wanted to have when I'm playing in D-standard or even sometimes C-Dropped. Although 0.048 could sound a bit sloppy on C, but the intonation stays put.
the reason I use this brand is quality/price rate. I change my guitar Strings every month. being able to have a good quality and paying reasonable price for that, is desirable.
