    Comments about Dunlop Resonator Guitar Phosphor Bronze String Set:

    I have tried alot of reso strings in search of the
    best.Jim Dunlop'resonator strings are probably the
    best so far.High quality phosphor bronze and well
    balanced.They come with an extra .018(B string)for
    adding a little more mass to the high D string. I
    tried the extra .018 and it's exactly what I've been
    looking for. .016' are kind of wimpy if you do alot
    of single string playing. I'm comparing these to
    D'Addario EJ42 reso strings. My usual preferance.
    I really like the Dunlops better. They seem a little
    heavier though the same guage.Just a really well made tonally rich set of strings.

        Comments about Dunlop Resonator Guitar Phosphor Bronze String Set:

        I've been stringing up guitars for 56 years and never had core strings break like this. I could tell the .036 and .046 strings were going to break when I was within a step and a half from getting them into basic C6 tuning. I don't know if because Musiciansfriend has had them on the shelf for too long, or if they're just made that way, but these are the most brittle strings I've ever experienced. Core breaks and outer winding still intact.

            They sound much better than the light gauge electric strings which were on the instrument when I bought it.

                Comments about Dunlop Resonator Guitar Phosphor Bronze String Set:

                This is my first experience with the Dunlop strings. They sound good, and are even tonaly. My problem with them is I don't like how they feel. Maybe its the gauge, maybe its me. One thing I did notice right away, finger picked...the Dunlops are no louder than any other set of strings, but with a pick they are much louder. The very heavy gauge does make fingering notes much more difficult. In the future when I want to use fingers and slide I will go back to a regular gauge (13's). Plus the regular set of strings costs about half. As for my recording purposes, (at least so far) I've not heard enough of a difference to warrant keeping the 16's and will be switching back. But if I was gigging and only playing slide, these strings would work very well.
