      Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings Heavy 6-Pack:

      I've been using these for a year now. I used to use Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinkys, but I wanted something just a tad bit thicker and this fit my needs perfectly.
      These have great tone, last long (I usually keep a set on a guitar for 3-4 weeks), and are easy to bend.
      Tension wise, this gauge works great for E and D standard, Drop C etc.
      Any lower i recommend the Heavy Core "Heavier" set :)

        Great strings. We play in Eb. They sound EXCELLENT. This set allows you to still rip your solos and you get a nice beefy low end. TONS of pros use these and I see why. Highly recommended!

          Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings Heavy 6-Pack:

          I was surprised at how good these strings are; will definitely get the six pack next time. Like the name says, the are for detuned guitars. I would go with a regular .10 gauge set for regular tuning (or whatever your guitar manufacturer suggests). Dunlop pretty much does all things well; great company.

            Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings Heavy 6-Pack:

            Great choice for players like myself that play in standard tuning a lot, but have a pick attack and/or vibrato that pulls the average set of "medium" strings out of tune. The slightly thicker low end gives a tad more tone, and the higher tension keeps these in tune better than most other sets. They have a consistent and unique tone that works great for many types of music. The price is also quite reasonable for what is essentially a type of "custom" string gauge. Way to go, Dunlop!

            Best String By Far

            By Elfranco

            from North Dakota

            Comments about Dunlop Heavy Core Electric Guitar Strings Heavy 6-Pack:

            Try them out, it's definetly worth it.
            I won a set of Heavey Cores thru Dunlop about a year ago, not expecting much more from the regular Dunlops. WOW. These sound amazing, have the same feel as Ernie Balls. Great for meatl, which is what they were aiming for. Great chunk and clarity at the same time. Last around a month or so.
            Top Notch, Dunlop hit it out of the park. Haven't had one break.
            For the price, it's absolutely worth it. I buy the 6 packs just becuase it's more economincal and always on hand. Never been an Ernie Ball guy, most players swear by them, but I hate changing strings every two weeks.
