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.

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.

Got these free with a Phase 90 I bought and gave them a shot to see if they'd replace the D'Addario's that I've been using for years. Not even close. While they do feel a lot slinkier, the low strings are very dead sounding (like rubber bands) and the G would just NOT stay in tune. I'd look elsewhere.....

      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!

        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!!

              Good quality, low tension and exellent sound in 25.5" or 24.75" scale guitars, from Fender to Gibson and any brand in-between.

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

              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.

              VERY FOCUSED LOWS

              By PS

              from Guam

              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!!!

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

              I've been on a constant search for a really good set of strings for general purpose practice/performance use on my Godin xtSA.I had been using D'Addario EXL110's and they are very good strings but also very bright. I tend to like a more warm and bluesy sound.The Dunlop strings were on sale so I bought a box of six sets and these strings are great.They won't replace my Thomastik Blues Sliders for very important performances but at $5/set for the Dunlop strings vs $16/set for the Thomastik strings I think the Dunlop strings are an excellent value.

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

              I got a set of these through a package I won through Dunlop. The sound a feel great, much like Ernie Ball Slinkys, but better in the sense that they are spongy. My only complaint is they only stayed fresh around two weeks, and I don't play everyday. Not for me, but might be for others.
