DR Strings Electric Bass Guitar Drop Down Tuning 5-String, .055 - .135, DDT5-554Brian RourkeDecember 10, 2010I play an Ibanez sr775 5 string in drop tune and have been looking for a string that has tension and tone. I've been playing dr low riders for about 5 yrs. I switched to these and found the perfect string for me. I only wish they sold them in a 45-65-85-115-135 set . Heavy top light bottom cause I tune to ADADG so i like a little lighter gauge for the high strings for slap and pop work . But the tone of my low A and D string and the speed I can carry on those string with my fingers is well worth a little extra effort .

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.
