My favourite strings for Drop C and Standard D Metal
Catalin Cornea of Order 66 25.05.2020
Use:
A 24"75 scale Dean ML and a 25"5 scale Ibanez RG370DX.

Fantastic strings for slightly downtuned metal, good resonance, fantastic aging time (slightly worse than Elixirs), possibly a bit bright at first, but they mellow very well for progressive metal.

Conclusion:
The only brand of strings I use anymore.

Note: They may rust faster than they did for me if your environment isn't as safe, or your hands have a corrosive component.

Very sturdy, but okay
Anonymous 09.01.2016
This is kind of an outlier, so only take my review into account if you plan to use it as I did, which is for a 8(octave)-stringed bass.

It's really hard to get strings for 8 string basses, and they are expensive too. This is why it seems like a good idea to use guitar strings.

One problem is that Dunlop doesn't indicate wheter the G string is plain (p) or wound (w). At a gauge this size, I think it's not trivial. I hoped it would be w, but it is not, the G string is already plain steel.

Sound is okay, punchy, with correct bass, but nothing extra.
I was surprised to see how sturdy they are. They pulled the neck of the guitar quite heavily, I had to make adjustments.
In comparison: Now I order Ernie ball single strings for this purpuse, they don't burden the neck this much, but they are the same size!

So far they didn't wear out, I guess they would do fine on a guitar.


Again, this reveiw is only for those who consider using them as octave strings for bass - bad idea. Too much burden for the neck, and G string is plain steel.

For guitar, they sound OK.

Good, but not really that heavier...
Edgar Blackdagger 13.06.2019
I use Dunlop strings exclusively for maybe 8 years now,
I wanted to to tune my Tele in C# Standard for some songs,
so I first put standard Dunlop 11s and it wasn't enough, so I tried these,
but it didn't have much difference, the strings feel more solid but the
tension stayed almost the same...

They are very nice strings, just don't expect them to do miracles.

Sounds heavy and feels nice

It has a very nice cracking (?) sound when played with my 5150 and TS sim, sounds very nice for drop tuning. The sound i think is better than Ernie Ball for modern metal. The lowest string is rather slinky as it is a lower gauge, which can be an advantage or disadvantage. Overall these are solid strings, happy with it.
