OVERVIEW

For a hell of a good sound, try Misfits Skullbusters.

Gauges 11-13-17-28-38-48.

"Dean's strings hold up and maintain their original intensity through the severe beating we give them, far better than any others we've played. Overall we like to use just a little bigger gauges. That way we get a tighter, fatter sound."

"We don't want to put extra tension on the neck that it doesn't need. Our approach is . . . bigger string, louder and a heavier sound. That's what we're about."

"We exclusively use Dean Markley strings on a custom Misfits Annihilator guitar that we designed and built ourselves. It goes through a bass amp head because it goes to a level of 90. It's got more power and gives a lot more bottom end--which helps define our sound . . . especially live."

kicking strings

By ronald ondike

from mckeesport pa

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

These strings sound great I put them on my jay turser les paul and what a difference, unplugged they sounded nice and loud the loudest I ever heard on a unplugged soild body. I tune to drop d and the tension is perfect not too tight or to loose. I was using daddario and they snaped the first time I tuned them, if the skullbuster last as long as a set of ernie balls I'm putting skullbusters on all my guitars, so far these are the best string I've used it 6 years of playing (I've used ghs ernie balls daddario gibsons and standard dean markleys)

Skullbusters

By Klepto

from Undisclosed

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

I started out using Blue Steel, but decided that I wanted to try something a little different. I never had any problems with Dean Markley strings like I did with my previous ones. I really dig in and need something that can hold up and give me a full tone. These strings do just that. Plus I get a neat sticker with them.

Teenagers from Mars

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

Great strings for drop tuning. I use a 2001 Gibson SG special and these are the only strings I've ever played on that guitar that stay in tune. They tend to get dirty easily, but I sometimes forget to wash my hands before I play.

BUSTIN' SKULLS

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

These strings are the toughest and most durable strings I have used since i started playing guitar. I usually tune down one and a half steps to C# and these strings are optimal for usage. Highly recommended for guitarists who use down tuning methods. And for the price who could ask for more.

By TommyD07

from Western New York

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

Im a Huge Misfits Fan and My Slinkey's weren't doing it for me on my B.C Rich...I decided to pick up a set of the Skullbusters...the second you play theirs no buzzing or anything...they usually keep in tune really good and they dont wear out easily...i had one set on for 4 months and they still felt new most of the time.The sets are only 4 bucks too so you cant go wrong if your playing metal or punk.

AWSOME!!

By Jadepugetsawsome69

from Charlotte,NC

Comments about Dean Markley 8802 Misfits Skullbusters Electric Guitar Strings Low Tune:

I use to use the Purple Heavy Gauge Ernie Balls, and when I first got these I thought I wouldn't like them because strings 4, 5, and 6 are really heavy and it said strings 1, 2, and 3 weren't made for solos. Once I started to use them solos sounded nice and rich and 4 5 6 sounded better than I ever amagined. BUY THESE!!$$!!$$!!
