See All Dunlop .009 Gauge Electric Guitar Strings

Soulful, rich, articulate, and smooth sound from guitar 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.

Medium Light gauges: 9-11-16-24-32-42

Get the big Texas tone of Billy Gibbons with these Dunlop guitar strings. Grab a bunch and SAVE BIG!

    Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's String Set - Medium Light:

    I don't understand the negative reviews here. they have nothing in common with my experiences with these strings, which I've used in 8 9 and 10's versions.

    they sound great, they don't lose their tone, and they don't break.
    I bend a lot. step, step and a half typical.

    I do prefer the lighter 008's on a les paul rather than my strat. But
    the other gsuges work great with all my guitars.

    If the Rev is going as light as 007s, and not breaking them, you must have a very heavy touch to do so.

    I like these very very much.

    With all due respect to uncle willy..

    Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's String Set - Medium Light:

    If you're stuck and need a string during a set, use it, then get it off of your guitar next day as fast you can.
    I really hate these strings..couldn't wait to get them off of my musicman silhouette special..They don't stay in tune, they are not very slinky at all, very stiff..just stick to Fender Bullets. That bullet end is the be all and end all for all of us with trems.
    They just keep stretching..wont settle in
    Why pay for crap?

    Comments about Dunlop Reverend Willy's String Set - Medium Light:

    These strings are the best I've ever played. I've been using EB's for years and I decided to give these a go on my Hagstrom. Wow. First thing I noticed was how well they stay in tune. I didn't even string these very well, few winds and rather loose. I haven't had to retune these more than once. They have a crystal clear tone too. Bitey and bright and they respond well to many different types of picking and picks. The only drawback I've found is that they start to loose life pretty soon. I've had them about 3 weeks and they're starting to loose the same tone. But, that's what you expect out of lighter strings right? Get these, at least give them a try.
