Product Reviews for DR Strings Electric Bass Guitar Drop Down Tuning, .055 - .115, DDT-55

DR Strings Electric Bass Guitar Drop Down Tuning, .055 - .115, DDT-555NateMarch 23, 2011Great strings for low tunings. tension will probably be too high for standard tunings, but for drop, it's great. I tune a whole step down (DGCF) and drop the low string down another step sometimes (CGCF). I can't recommend them enough. As far as the broken string review, it happens. I've broken a few strings in my day, but not enough on a regular basis to completely dismiss an entire brand or type of string. If you break strings regularly, there is something wrong with either your bass or your playing, but most likely the bass

The first thing you will notice about these strings is that they go right into tune and lock in. Players say they are "so stable it is almost eerie." Now you can stand and delivery in tune notes at lower pitch that are clean and clear. Expect more and get more. Change tunings and be surprised how DDTs lock right in. Be surprised how little adjustments you make. DDTs deliver far more than just heavy gauges. Drop with confidence, drop with accuracy. DDTs maintain their intonation at lower tunings far better than any other string we have ever played or heard. Designed over a two year build and test period to answer the needs of the dark side.
