Robert Trujillo's powerful attack, deep grooves, and monstrous tone have earned him the most coveted bass chairs in rock. From his early days in Infectious Grooves, to his long ride with Ozzy Osbourne, and now the biggest band in metal--Metallica--Robert has claimed his rightful place among the legends of metal. The RT Icon Series Strings were developed with Robert to give him the power and tonal flexibility to hold up under the demands of his rigorous touring and recording schedule. These strings offer a clear articulate top end, solid mid range punch to cut thru a wall of guitars, and more than enough focused bottom to knock you on your ass! Stainless steel taper core bass strings gauges 45-63-80-102.

    Comments about Dunlop Robert Trujillo Icon Series Bass Guitar Strings - 4 String Set:

    I have never played this light a guage string that sounds this powerfull. Tapered strings mean you need to adjust your action up at the bridge to get rid of the buzz. Great strings, stainless, bright, and ballanced.

    The texture was a little rougher than I'm used to but, other than that, the range of tone from lows to highs is wonderful.

    Terrible!

    By Ihavenoideawuttoput

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dunlop Robert Trujillo Icon Series Bass Guitar Strings - 4 String Set:

    I play in C the majority of the time and these strings are complete garbage... now if I tune up to Standard or Drop D they play alright... not great... just alright... So if you play in a tuning other than those two I wouldn't recommend these strings at all... Even if you do play in Standard there are still much better strings out there for you... These strings are insanely rough and buzz no matter what it is you play... I completely regret buying them and hope this review can help.

    These strings are only good for one thing,,,,

    Comments about Dunlop Robert Trujillo Icon Series Bass Guitar Strings - 4 String Set:

    If you have a wall of fuzz to mask these noisy things, they might be ok. Say goodbye to your calluses. Never buying Dunlop strings again.
    These strings are only good if you play metal with a ton of distortion, Why you ask? I'll tell you! First, these things are the roughest strings I have ever seen. Its like they tried to make them as rough as they could. This slows you waaaaaaaay down,and has a ton of finger noise. Theyre also buzzy everywhere. Maybe this is a characteristic of stainless, but its annoying. I had to raise my action to compensate. Super duper metallic sounding. Needless to say, two days after I put em on, I took em back off and put my old strings back on. Waste of money. I was dissapointed.

    Love these Strigns

    Comments about Dunlop Robert Trujillo Icon Series Bass Guitar Strings - 4 String Set:

    Overall I would and will be buying these strings again and again. I have yet to find another carrier of the strings in my local area and for the same price. If you're a bassist and you have yet to give these strings a try I would highly suggest them.
    These are the BEST bass strings I've every used. Great price for a great product. I've been buying my equipment for Musician's Friends for almost a year now and love the serice. And very fast delivery.

    Best strings.

    By MetallicA-BlaZb

    Comments about Dunlop Robert Trujillo Icon Series Bass Guitar Strings - 4 String Set:

    I hadn't put new strings on in a while and the ones I had were starting to suck. Being a diehard Metallica fan (and noticing how much I love Trujillo's tone) I bought these strings. Just expecting some normal strings with Trujillo's name on the box, I put them on and tuned. WOW! These strings rule. I really feel a similarity between my tone and Rob's. I can also fly down the neck as well. Simple as that, if you like Trujillo's sound , you will very much enjoy these strings. A must have.

    Could these be any better?

    By Clifford Lee Burton Fanatic

    from FAIRPORT, NEW YORK, GO RED RAIDERS!

    Comments about Dunlop Robert Trujillo Icon Series Bass Guitar Strings - 4 String Set:

    Let me just start off by saying that I LOOOOOOVE Metallica (actually the reason I started playing bass, you just gotta love Cliff Burton), and I also love Rob Trujillo. I was on this site looking for some new strings a few months ago, and when I stumbled across these, I knew I just had to get them. I ordered them, strung up my bass, tuned them, and was blown away. Literally. These strings sound so clear that your bass actually sounds louder when played through your amp. On my old strings, I used to get a kind of funny buzzing noise coming from the 16th through 18th fret of the D string. Not anymore. These strings are amazing. They sound unbelievable. They have a nice and wet funky sound when played clean, but also an amazingly heavy distorted sound. After playing these, I'm gonna get the 5 string set next. Buy these strings today, you'll love them, and you'll want to thank Mr. Trujillo himself.
