I've used DR MT-10s exclusively on my electric guitars for the last 15 years. Before that I was using D'Addarios, but switched because they broke too easily and corroded badly. I saw some of the marketing for DR strings at the time and said, "What the heck?" Since then they are all I've used. I don't know if they're "handmade", but I think the round core and tighter winding makes a difference. They tune up faster, require less stretching, break in fast, have consistently good tone, and stay in tune despite my Gilmouresque bends. Furthermore, I can't remember the last time a broke a string, but it's been probably 10 years.At one time or another I got a wild hair and decided to try something else, but whatever I tried fell short of the DRs and in the last 8 years I haven't tried another string. I tried GHS Booomers once in the 90s because David Gilmour uses them, but they were inferior IMHO.Having said all this, I do believe that other string manufacturers have improved the quality of their strings in recent years, so I want to try different strings on different guitars to see if anything else sounds and plays better. I'd like a little more crispness in the attack, a little more edge. How will a set of Gibson Brite Wires sound on my Strat? I don't know, I never played them before - but I'll give 'em a go.However, if any of the strings I try don't tune up as fast and hold their tuning, or corrode quickly, I'll put the DRs right back on. I can leave my guitar sitting for months with DR MT-10s and the guitar will still be in tune, and I don't have to tune up while I'm playing. When recording, I've come back the next day and not need to tune up (with a floating trem Strat!). I've left DRs on my guitars for a long, long time (admittedly, not playing a lot) and they've still been in tune and sounded great. Just wipe them with a cloth when you're done playing and they'll treat you right. The other guitarist in my band really likes my tone, and he's a jazz, blues, rock old timer. That's pretty validating.

I have been in the music business for over 30 years and have used diff quality strings for all different instruments. I tried these strings many many years ago and had the same problem with them time and time again. These strings are very poor quality for as much as the stores charge for a pack. The strings sound very cheap and inconsistent. These strings are very very high tension without much of a sound. The .10's feel more like .11 and the .9's feel more like .10's. I have never been impressed with this string company or there products. I called the company to tell them about my comments and they told me to take a hike and to buy another brand. From a customers perspective that was a perfect example of how sad there products and customer service is. Don't waste your time or money on these products because their not worth the cash. Don't be fooled by the handmade string thing that they portray. These strings really looked and sounded like they were made by hands. Very Very disappointing products. Will never buy again!

      aff
      TOTAL CRAP. The worst strings I've ever used. I've tried them all. E.B., D'Adarrio, and W/E else. These stings lasted a FEW HOURS. They spunded dead when I put them on. Do yourself a favor ONLY BUY Cleartone stings. Yes they are more expensive, but they last you eight months vs A DAY. Do the math. You'll get it.

      DR's are Awesome Strings.

      By John Tremblay

      from Arkansas

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      The best strings on the market for great tone, longevity, a great feel and at a reasonable cost. Any guitarist should not be without a set of DR Strings.
      A fat feel without being too fat. A thick throaty tone that lasts. Handmade that makes a difference and have a flexibility that is surprising for such a "thick" feel.
      These are my favorite strings and I can use them on any of the 8 guitars that I have. I use different stings on different guitars to get a different sounds from each one. The DR's are reserved for my most favorite guitars to play. A B.C.Rich ST3 and an Ibanez Artcore AS73 Hollowbody electric. I get the fattest and deepest sounds with super throaty tonal qualities for Blues and Latin music as well as anything SRV. And they last forever, and feel great, and I do more string bending with these than any other string.
      These strings are worth twice that they charge for them, but they are always on average with most other strings. A real buy for the cost. You can't go wrong witht he feel, the sound, and a long lasting value.

      Not for gigging musicians

      By Allen Gay

      from Colorado

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      Too many strings left on the stage or club floor or damaged. VERY POOR PACKAGING will cost you money and time!!!
      Reasons stated below.
      Good string: good tone, stay in tune but many other brands offer the same.
      They are packaging two strings together (1st & 4th, 2nd & 5th, 3rd & 6th) in each envelope in the box. They claim this is to save the enviorment but it saves nothing. In fact it causes more enviomental resorces to be consumed by the end user. When you break a string on a gig you have not only the broken string to contend with but a second string that is now out of the package and needs to be put back in the little envelope. Yes, break one string and stand there with TWO new strings of different gauges to deal with. I don't have time to deal with this durring a break and I don't have a roadie or guitar tech with me on gigs.

      Meh

      By Ryan Alvidres-Ivie

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      I bought these strings after a friend of mine recommended them. Out of the box, they felt okay. Nothing spectacular, really. The tone wasn't really anything special, either. It seemed like the high strings lacked clarity and the low strings were TOO pronounced. The strings would lose their tuning after frantic playing over a time span of about 2 minutes into a song (my tuners are fairly stable). Also, when I was getting ready to take my guitar to school on a cold day, I detuned my strings and the 1st string broke. I will never go back to these strings. I switched to Ernie Ball, and I've never been happier. I do not recommend these strings at all.

      Please read, you may end up with the same problem

      By QuietRiot

      from Hartford, CT

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      Hi. I was at my local music store earlier today, and needed some new strings for my Fender Standard Strat. While i was there i stopped to play a P.R.S. Custom 24 (great guitar :D) and loved the feel of it, and how the strings performed. I asked the man at the counter what they had on the prs's, and he told me all about these amazing, handwound, DR Tite-Fits. I was sold. I immediatley hurried home with a pack and chopped off my old Ernie Ball slinkys (now i realise that was a mistake) and threw on the DR's. I found that they cannot stay in tune, the nickle plating rubs off easily on your fingers, and the overall sound isn't that good. I believe that these strings have been given too much credit, i mean they're decent, but not what i was looking for. I'm definatley sticking with my good ol' pal Ernie now, so make your own conclusions, but please bring my experiences into consideration before you fall for the DR trap. Hope this helped, happy shredding.

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      I have been playing these strings for about 6 months now, and i must say that they sound 100% better then ernie ball strings that i use to play my whole 9 years of playing guitar. but now that ive found these bad boys its a no brainier!!! Now one thing you have to do with these strings is read inside the packaging for the right way of installing them..... it will save your time and money. if not installed right they will sound dead in the first week and brake on you!!! not too fun i must say from experience!!!!

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      These strings are amazing, I can bend my strings very easily and the tone is just phenomenal. Some people complain that these strings break easily, these are round core strings and require a different method of stringing them with are shown in the packaging.

      Never Again

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      First time using these string and last. I do not like them one bit. Bought fresh from the store but they sound dead. Could be a quality control issue. Never had this happen with any other strings before. I'm ripping off these strings and going back to Ernie Ball.

      Not for a lot of playing

      By Teleman-x1HkQ

      from Albuquerque, New Mexico

      Comments about DR Strings Tite-Fit MT-10 Medium-Tite Nickel Plated Electric Guitar Strings:

      As country musician, i have been experimenting with different strings to get as bright of a sound as i can. I got dr's recomended from the guy at the local music store so i thought, what the heck, why not? I put the drs on and they sounded great at first, but now, a week later, they sound like they have been played into the ground. I practice a lot, but i have never had strings go this fast. I could've just got a bad set, but i'm just gonna go back to my eb's which are cheaper and last longer. Get some slinkies if you want some good-sounding strings that'll last. Sorry for ever doubtin' ya Ernie.
