OVERVIEW

The first thing you notice with DR Drop-Down Tuning Guitar strings is how stable they are. DDT strings maintain their intonation at lower tunings far better than other strings you may have played or heard. Players say DR DDT guitar strings are so stable it is almost eerie.

Now you can "stand and deliver" in-tune notes at lower pitches that are clean and clear-plus you can drop tune with confidence and accuracy. You'll be surprised how few adjustments you'll make to change tunings and will be even more surprised how well DR Drop-Down Tuning strings lock into tune.

Experienced players comment: "Tuned down, I was never able to play a favorite riff. It always came out muddy and garbled. Now it is crystal clear. I am going to record it and give it to my bandmates, who could not hear it before."

DR DDT strings deliver far more than just heavy gauges-they deliver impeccable tone.

Big-Heavy gauges: 10-13-17-36-52-60.

Drop-down tuning guitar strings that go right into tune and lock in.

    Comments about DR Strings Drop-Down Tuning Big-Heavy Guitar Strings:

    Preface - Now I'm fairly experienced in normal guitar and bass tunings but not when it comes to any type of drop tuning.

    Just recently started experimenting (thanks to Devin Townsends stuff)with alternate tunings. Have these on my Schecter Blackjack Solo-6 and they stay tightly tuned.

    I have swamp hands and it kills the brightness of my strings pretty quickly (only strings that seem to hold up for me are the Cobalts) but these seem to be doing well after 2 weeks.

    Awesome for Open Tunings

    Comments about DR Strings Drop-Down Tuning Big-Heavy Guitar Strings:

    I bought these to try out on a cheap Epiphone LP-100 that I use only for slide playing. The action is low on this guitar as I sometimes was hitting the frets and I thought these might raise it enough to play slide without fretting issues. The extra diameter of these raised the action to a perfect height! And the GROWL out of these strings changed the whole tone of this guitar into slide demon! Open D and Open G never sounded so good.
