OVERVIEW

Long-lasting strings with warm, clear tone and a smooth, tactile feel.

A unique combination of crisp highs, aggressive mids, and a focused low end gives Dunlop electric guitar strings a voice all their own. The Dunlop recipe for string-to-string balance and responsiveness produced a 6 string set that is perfect for dynamic lead work, while notes in a chord ring out clearly whether clean or heavily distorted. This powerful voice is delivered in a low-tension string with a smooth tactile feel that breaks in fast and lasts a long time.

Got these strings free months ago...recently I got a new LP and was thinking whether i would keep it.. It had very old strings on it and sounded very trebly and thin!! so i figured i would use the freebies rather than my standard 10's D'Addario's. I did a setup, adjusted the neck, string height, intonation...and replaced the strings with these Dunlops...and I must tell you that these strings sound great. This LP had a very bright character and these strings added lots of low end punch. I am going to try these on my strat and my other LP.....they seem very nice!!

I play a custom Jackson King V JS30KV with a fret swap for stainless steel fat frets. I didn't play it much while I had these strings but, High e broke so easily. I was tuning to standard e but, halfway it broke. They did feel smooth for the time I had them. I would recommend these as back ups if a string breaks because, they are very flimsy but, get the job done well. I gave these a 2-5 due to how short of a lifespan they had. They cannot even come close to my factory strings that came with this guitar. These lasted 2-4 months where, my factory strings lasted 2 years, and gave me beautiful sound.

    Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Electric Guitar Strings - Medium:

    I will NEVER use these strings again. Yesterday, I was on stage with my band, my strings were kind of new (about two weeks after I installed them), we were on the last song -Master of Puppets. In the second verse, my 6th string (yes, SIXTH STRING) broke! If you need strength, use Earnie Ball, I've never experienced a broken string on their sets. But my last two Dunlop products got their thickest string broken.
    This is not acceptable.
    The reason may be I use thick picks, but Dunlop is the only brand that I experience such problem.

      When and if you ever need a beefy tone, then look no further than these strings. They didn't allow me to get the sound I wanted (because the strings added so much beef on their own), but they did have a quality sound and good feel nonetheless.

          I go through strings like a new-born does diapers! These were on sale and the reg. price is pretty fair as well. They are very bright and on my G&L ASAT yet, they warm up nicely after an hour playing so I'm happy with them...way to go Dunlop and Musician's Friend!

          Ive been using Ernie ball regular slinky for years until i saw a youtube video talking about these convinced me to try them. the packaging is so great i felt like i was opening a christmas present. these strings felt different from the regular slinkys, cause they were thinner and broke in right away. normally it would take days on the regular slinkys to strecth them and would leave my fingers in pain, with these i just stretched them twice and they were good. after 3 hours i came back to playing them and they felt great and a lot thinner, and i was able to bend a lot better. so far after 10 hours ive had them, im happy with them.

          Comments about Dunlop Nickel Plated Steel Electric Guitar Strings - Medium:

          A salesman from GC gave 2 packs to me as promo items and did not really thought much about them. My Strat's high E string broke and I used the Dunlops and I was blown away by the clarity, bite, and focus of the 2 lower strings. Fender Super Bullets are great for Fender guitars but the Dunlop strings brings out a new animal in my Strat. The 2 lower strings on Super Bullets are accentuated and muddy while the Dunlops are more balanced with the the other strings. It chimes,bites,spanks and growls. A real affordable surprise!!!

            Well even though I'm not a professional musician or have tried every sort of guitar string on Earth but what I do understand is that everyone has special way of playing sorta like how ya hear a song and just by the tone or riff ya know who it is... What I'm trying to say is I love these strings they fit my tones and ect.. will everyone like em... Idk depends on what ya like I guess but my opinion there great quality.

                I put these on a humbucking Gibson that was just a little to "jangly". Now the sound is more useful for country, rock, and some church work. The guitar picks the strings and these are the pick.

                    Nice clean workmanship. I worked in the string biz for many years and recognise good wrapping. I recently bought 3 sets of my former brand and could not use the 46's because the find was a jumbled cluster and would not fit through the top mount bridge on a Telecaster I built.

                        I've tried most strings in many different guitars and basses. Dunlops are just right. I cant find a better way to describe them. They are not overlly bright, not dull, just right. The other cool thing is that they come out of the package sounding that way. No need to wait a couple of days for them to settle. And to top everything, the last a long time sounding exactly the same. Nut wait, i almost forgot to mention, they are cheap!!! I keep recommending them for both bass and guitar.

                          I play a custom Jackson King V JS30KV with a fret swap for stainless steel fat frets. I didn't play it much while I had these strings but, High e broke so easily. I was tuning to standard e but, halfway it broke. They did feel smooth for the time I had them. I would recommend these as back ups if a string breaks because, they are very flimsy but, get the job done well. I gave these a 2-5 due to how short of a lifespan they had.

                          I'm an Elixir Nanoweb guy usually (2005 HSS MIM Strat), but when I stopped by the music store the other day to get some strings (just installed Fender/Schaller locking tuners which are awesome) they weren't stocking my usual Elixir Nanoweb 10's. The guy there recommended them, so I picked up a set and strung up.1 day later, I'm really satisfied. They have a great tone and a similar feel to the Elixirs (just not quite as smooth), and obviously they're about half the cost.So I'm going to see about how long these last and consider making the change. I have Dunlop straplocks and I've been really impressed with some of their other products too. These are really good guitar strings, especially for such an attractive price.

                          Just another example of Dunlop superior quality. These strings are great. I used to think that strings were strings-until I got these. They last longer than others I've used in the past, sound better, and just plain feel better.
