I forget who originally turned me on to DR strings, but whoever it was did me a huge favor. I put DR's, of various model lines, on everything I own. Love the tone, feel, and tuning stability. I've played live with them, practice daily, and I tend to play a bit hard. These things take a beating, thinking about it, I don't think I've ever broken one of these strings. Life expectancy isn't the highest being a non coated string and all, but in my experience they outlast Slinky's(they were free) by a large margin.

Going to try their Dragon Skin coated strings at the next string change on my Les Paul and Strat to see if the slightly higher price(still an awesome deal) leads to noticeably longer string life.

Bottom line is, buy a set. They're affordable, sound great, just can't go wrong.

I have used a few packs of these for a while now, but is seems every time I put them in my guitar, they have a short life expectancy, as in they rust out in a few weeks every time of daily usage. I tried wiping down my strings and using funky string cleaning oils, but it doesn't really help much. they sound great at first for me but soon after they loose their shimmer and just get irritatingly rusty. it may be just me or the local climate humidity but I need something that lasts longer

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've been playing a long time and never tried these strings. I was very surprised at the tone quality compared to the price. My new Les Paul was sounding a bit cruddy, and had the strings it came with when I got it a few months ago. Now new strings will help any instrument to sound better, but these sound great and have performed well. They hold their tone (so far) and stay in tune well for strings in this price range. Hard to beat for the price.

    Best strings ever made. They'll bury me with all my guitars, all strung with DRs. And then light the fuse!!!!
    I've been playing these strings since they first came out.......never looked back! Awesome tone, awesome action (everybody likes good action!), last forever.....what else do you need?
    Hand made.....duh!
    Don't buy any other strings.....you know....if you're smart.....

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've tried many many man different types of strings, and I've honestly found these to be the best. I was on EB strings for the longest time, but these just play better, sound better, and last longer. My string of choice unless I somehow find something better.

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    I searched tirelessly from sting brand to brand, till i bought my jackson and asked the guitar specialist if they had anything that could stand up to crazy playing, bending, and Whammyin, he said to try a set of Dr's and i'm never going back to anything other. my only issue is they get dirt buildup a little fast but if you get something like guitar string protecter/anti-rust i use a spray called: "Finger-Ease" and it keeps my DR's Shiny and Clean. Great Strings Can't go Wrong.

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    I got these strings a while ago and decided to put them on my Nashville Tele. They are AWESOME!! They're handmade and inexpensive. They have great tone and a smooth feel. My only issue is that the high e string won't stay in the peg! That, however, is the fault of the guitar, not the strings. THESE STRINGS ROCK!!!

    Strong Lite Amazing Tone

    By BigBlue

    from Sav, Ga

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    I am ruff of my strings so I asked my local tech for the best strings and I was told about DR. He strung a set on an old guitar and then picked it up by the High E and the rest is history. They are strong and then some. They also have a nice tone and feel silky. The tones you want can be obtained with ease with these strings and they will handle all the abuse you throw at them.

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    These strings are borderline god-like. They play so smoothly and bend effortlessly. I used to use Super Slinkys, but these blew them out of the water. It is so easy to go up and down the fretboard now. I'm never going to use anything else. BUY THESE STRINGS NOW!!!!

    Awesome strings, last forever!

    Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit LT-9 Lite-n-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

    I've used quite a few brands of strings- Fenders, D'addario XL, Ernie Ball, DR. Out of all of these, the DRs have lasted the longest. I love strings that last forever because you don't need to buy new sets all the time, thus saving you money. I usually end up changing the strings before they break because they get so old and dirty. I'm a guitarist who changes tunings all the time, so I want a tough, reliable string that won't break- and DR has given it to me.
