Dunlop

Soulful, rich, articulate, and smooth sound from strings designed to emulate fat Texas tone.

Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top is known for big fat Texas tone that has been described as "hot, blue, and righteous." Dunlop developed Reverend Willy's strings in collaboration with Billy himself, aiming to make replacement guitar strings that offer a real punch and while remaining articulate and clear when guitarists perform his legendary leads and pinch harmonics.

Extra Light guitar string gauges: 7-9-11-20-30-38


Get the big Texas tone of Billy Gibbons when you order some Reverend Willy's guitar strings today.

      Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Extra Light:

      I'm in my sixties been playing since a teenager, always avoided super light strings, I thought they lacked in tone. Boy was I surprised!The comfort of these strings and the tone is amazing. Purchased 10 more sets. Way to go Dunlop.

        Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's Electric Guitar String Set - Extra Light:

        Used on a mini- mod of my own specs, stupid fun through 100 watts of tube amp! Ride on. Shipping was slow, mail bag was beat up and run over. All 5 boxes were crushed and open. Not what I'm used to with musicians friend. After 20 plus years I may find a new dealer.

          I love this string. I only hope they never run out. I've used them for quite a while and never had one break on me.

              Dear Reverend Willy G.,

              Thanks for the 7 gauge strings. They are righteous. Now I just need to learn your licks and tricks to be a Texas Blues legend.

                  I have always used 010 or 009 on my stratocasters because of the longer scale. I always thought the heavier the string the better the tone however the string gage doesn't effect the tone as I found out. I put these strings on my 2004 50th aniversery strat and I can't believe the tone and so easy to play.I wish I had done this years ago. I have played guitar for 50 years and it puts a whole new life in it for me.

                    These strings are very easy to manipulate on the fretboard for anyone who has short fingers or small hands, and you do not sacrifice tone. They are real joy to play for chords or picking.

                      I "re-make" guitars by replacing the fretwire with .035's for beginners and people with "Not so strong" fingers. These are the ONLY strings I put on my guitars. I am 58 and retired, but I still remember the 60's and not only high action but heavy "I give up!" strings. As a lead guitarist, you can't go wrong. If you are a long time player as well, you owe it to yourself to at least TRY these babies out!

                          I wanted to see what a .007 felt like. It takes a very light touch. Suprisingly good tone. G string is a little too slinky -- would feel more balanced with a .013 on that string.

                            these are great strings for finger picking. they sound good and don't hurt my fingers hammering on or pulling off. the price is right and the box is amusing.
