I have been a death metal guitarist for 15 years now. If you have a baritone guitar, use alternate tuning, use gauge 56 or higher, and have a Floyd Rose on the bridge, I seriously recommend the TITE-FIT. Death metal instrumentalists play very fast riffs and usually play intervals instead of singe notes in their riffs. Because of their flat surface, TITE-FITs completely eliminate the finger slide noise, this adds definition to the riffs, and this alone is something that is worth basing your purchase on. The tight fit also means less crevices for dirt, grease, and sweat to accumulate, therefore the string live longer. Rockers complain that DR 11 feels like 12 and 12 feels like 13 and so on. Metal heads consider this to be an advantage, because it means better feel on baritones and down tuned guitars. We do not select high gauges because we want to look tough, they bend less in high speed chord changes and riffs, big strings do not slip from underneath our fingers, and they produce better distortion. I also love the way they pack their strings, I may play death metal, but I do not wish death for the environment! I think DR TITE-FITs are special tools for a certain craft, they may not be for everybody.

Wow, what a Love/hate relationship I have with these strings! I use them on an American Standard Stratocaster. Tite-Fit Nickel Plated-Round Core 10-52s. First the negatives....1. There is obviously a quality control issue going on with these strings. Some strings last for months and some break in the one day to one month range. I've never seen strings break so frequently and always right at the saddle. 2. The nickle plating comes off easily and an hour of playing on new strings will leave your finger tips covered in nickle plating. It's not easy to wash off either. 3. You have to be careful how you install them. Read the instructions carefully as the wound strings can easily unravel on you.Now the positives....1. These strings sound amazing. They are far better sounding than any other string available.The tone is inspiring. Clear, deep, balanced, articulate, rich, brilliant....kind of hard to put into words. 2. More sustain. Maybe 20% more.3. Much easier to bend than other strings. 10's bend like 9s. Must be that round core....4. I called the DR company and they sent me more strings no questions asked to replace my broken ones.5. The new strings and some of the originals are still singing after 5 months and a couple hundred hours of fierce playing.All in all. I guess they are like Ferrari race cars. A little unreliable but unbeatable performance when running right. It would be suicide to go on stage with a fresh set. It would be suicide to go in a studio withOUT them. After 35 years of daily playing these strings took me to a new level in my playing. My long time friend thinks I'm taking pro lessons behind his back. "Man, you've gotten so much better" he said. I'll stick to these strings but I really do hope DR finds a more reliable design.

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

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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.

            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!!!!
