These strings made me switch from Ernie Ball. They sound great and are exactly what I was looking for. I'm in Drop A right now and the low A is a little more loose than I would like it to be, but it still works just fine. These are perfect for Drop A# (Drop Bb). I strongly recommend these strings for people who enjoy down tuning. These are actually the strings Alex Wade from Whitechapel uses on his 7 string, he just adds a .10 for the first string.

I went through 3 sets of D'addario LIght Gauge Baritone, but it seems that the low 62 string does not hold tuning well. I am not sure how this gets past quality control, but D'addario does have a problem. You will most likely need to replace this string, or choose another brand. I would not recommend.

    Comments about D'Addario EXL158 Light Baritone Electric Guitar Strings:

    I play in a death metal band and these strings give me the tone that I need and can handle the abuse of heavy and fast playing. My band tunes to B standard and these strings have no problem staying in tune from the moment I put them on and no matter how much I solo and use the tremolo bar. Very durable yet surprisingly flexible. I love these strings!!

        I wanted a guitar to tune to B standard and decided to string my Epi Goth LP with this set. Awesome tension, feel, and sound. I did have to sand the nut to fit the extra gauge, but less than 10 mins of work. I also decided to use this on my Ibanez Apex 7 string and love the feel there as well. Get them if you down tune.

          Comments about D'Addario EXL158 Light Baritone Electric Guitar Strings:

          Wow, these strings were exactly what I was looking for B standard. I bought two packs one for my Epi Les Paul and one for my Ibanez Apex green monster. These feel big, but are responsive and sound great. Clear note definition and deep as yo' momma! New fan and will be using there going forward. However, I do use Cleartone 10s on all my other guitars.

            A lot of the songs I play are tuned very low, and I always change my tunings from Drop B to Drop A#. I used Ernie Ball Not Even Slinkys for awhile, but whenever I was in Drop A#, it just did not have good tone. When I threw these strings on, the tone was amazing and so clear. I can even tune down to Drop A and have it sound perfectly clear. Great strings and tone is something I never have to worry about now when I tune down.

              Comments about D'Addario EXL158 Light Baritone Electric Guitar Strings:

              On my Epi Les Paul, this tunes down to B standard really well, but it's a only a little floppy in drop A. Sounds pretty good, though. I really wouldn't recommend tuning higher than Drop C or maybe Drop C#. They sound very mellow on the low strings while still fairly bright on the high strings.

                Comments about D'Addario EXL158 Light Baritone Electric Guitar Strings:

                These strings seriously rock! I put these on my Charvel charvel dst-1 st and tuned down to Standard B tuning. They stay in tune, have lots of "bite" while when chugging away, and literally sing when the neck pickup is engaged. These have a better tone then my DR strings

                The only issue I have is that intonation is almost impossible to dial in, I'm sure that varies on the length of your guitar though. Other then that, these things are well worth the money for low standard B tuning.

                  I've been playing guitar for 45 years. I've used many different brands of strings in that time. I started using D'Addario about 30 years ago. I use them almost exclusively on my electric guitars. They are great strings. I recommend them to other players all the time.

                    These are great baritone strings. I personally use these for Drop A# (B flat) to play stuff like Bring Me The Horizon and Breaking Benjamin, but depending on the scale length of your guitar, they can handle anything from Drop B to Drop A. If you're going to get this set, go ahead and order a set of single strings that are bigger than the .62 (low e string). The .62 just doesn't hold up well. It's surprisingly weak. I went with a .68 which is MUCH stronger and holds tuning 10x better!
