OVERVIEW

Warm and harmonically rich tone combined with smooth tactile feel.

Bass players demand consistency, durability, and versatility from their strings. Dunlop delivers. Dunlop bass guitar strings offer traditionalists, slappers, and pick-wielding rockers cutting midrange, wide bottom end and a growl that will cut through any band. Carefully selected core-to-wrap ratios yield a low-tension steel string with an extremely long life, and minimal break-in time. Each 4 string set is exceptionally well balanced from string-to-string, and provides an amazing amount of dynamic range.

Low tension--but has MIDS!

By CrybabyKing

Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

Yo-OK, I won't mention the brand, but I thought I was stuck with scooped mids and stainless steel if I wanted lower tension and brightness and punch. I was wrong. These Dunlop nickels have changed my thinking about bass strings in general. These nickels have the brightness and punch of stainless, but easier on my hands and frets, and they last longer! I don't want to tear up my high end or vintage basses with stainless, and since I've found Dunlops, I won't be afraid of that any longer. And, I won't be dialing up fake mids to replace those I lost with that OTHER brand that begins with a D. Try them, you will become a believer!

Dunlop Medium Nickel Plated Bass Strings. Great strings! Great price!

Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

I use these on all my Fenders both 4s and 5 strings. I used to use DR Low Riders until I tried these. For the money there is no comparision and I haven't seen any downside to these compared to the DRs. They seem to last just as long and sound just as good. They are crisp and articulate with consistant sound up and down the fretboard. I have never recieved a package with any dead strings and have never broken one no matter how reckless I get. Great strin! Great price! Pay more if it makes you feel better but you owe it to yourself to at least give them a try.

Sounds awesome,but.....

By Slowdown961

Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

Put a set of these on my P bass ,and was absolutely blown away by the tonal quality. The only drawback was that killer sound only lasted for two gigs,and went deader than the lights at Wrigley field. Now after thirty seven years of playing I'm totally used to the fact each manufacturer makes a "dud" now and then because I have had a bunch. I haven't decided whether or not to use these bass strings again. Now on the other hand I put a set of Dunlop nickel plated strings on my stratocaster and I'll be using those from now on especially the Reverand Willys. Dunlop electric guitar strings yes bass strings uhh probably not.

Not what I hoped for

By piloto117

Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

They offer good tone, definitely some improvment on the mids, great for (but not limited to) rock music but the durability is what let me down. They're last just a tad longer than the average bass string, but definitly not like Elixirs.

First to Review!

Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

OK, I could say that I am a diehard Dunlop user. I already use their Ultex Tri picks, Strap Loks, Crybaby and MXR, so I gave these a shot. Wow. Perfect tension, not too rubbery like DR's, but not stiff like D'addarios. It had a more focused low end than the DR's, but similar top end, clear and bright, but had the midrange like D'addarios. The perfect string, I can't recommend them enough.

Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

OK, I read the review in Bass Player, but still...you can't believe everything you read in that mag. So, I gave the med. nickels four string set a chance. I have been a diehard DR fan for years....until know. I feel like I have a new bass! I have midrange and true fundamental again, but with the crunch and punch of the DRs. Blown away, try these strings once and you will be a believer.

    Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Bass Strings - Medium:

    I have been searching a specific growl that I had with strings I had many years ago. I had forgotten the brand. So I decided to try these. I really like them. To me they have a growly distorted sound that I have grown to love. I play them on a 1992 MIM Fender precision Bass with Geezer Butler signature pick ups. $$

      I have six basses, and I put these on my MIM Jazz. Now I have the sound I have been looking for. These strings made all the difference.
