Dunlop Electric Guitar Strings

(Dunlop products are only available for shipment to addresses in the United States, U.S. Territories & Possessions, and APO/FPO destinations.)
Utilizing only the finest materials in combination with Dunlop’s propriety core to wrap ratio, these strings offer players a smooth feel, quick break-in period, long life and a balanced string-to-string response that allow you to move across the fingerboard with precision and tone. They are available in nickleplated steel and pure nickel in sixteen different types and gauges. Nickleplated steel sets are offered in eight standard sets from extra light to extra heavy. In addition Dunlop makes three heavy core sets which incorporate a unique core wire and proprietary wrap ratios to offer players the ability to really "dig in" while retaining a tight low end, focused midrange and smooth top-end when playing clean or distorted. Great for standard B, B with dropped A, 1/2 step and B Flat tunings and can also be used with a baritone guitar. Baritone players will feel right at home using Heavy Core 7's six lower strings for their instruments and saving the high E (.010) as a back up for one of their six string electrics. Two Zakk Wylde Signature nickleplated sets were developed in collaboration with and tested by Zakk to work under the heaviest hands in rock. They were designed around Dunlop Heavy Core® technology with a bulked-up core wire for less breakage, long-life, and better definition and pitch retention at lowered tunings.

For a rich, vintage vibe and modern quality and consistency, string up with Dunlop Pure Nickel. These strings are specially formulated for old school warmth, excellent sustain and a smooth mid-range. Made from the finest 92% nickel wrap and steel hex core materials, Dunlop Pure Nickel Strings offer players a distinct range of tonal shading well-suited for rock, blues and jazz. Available in four gauge ranges from light .009 - .042 to medium heavy .011 - .050. Every set of Dunlop Strings are made in the U.S.A. and come packaged utilizing three levels of moisture protection and sealed in a VCI Fresh Technology (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) bag to guarantee that your strings arrive as fresh as the day they were made.

A happy Zakk Wylde string user says, “I have been using Jim Dunlop strings since I bought my first electric guitar. Recently I bought a pack of these Zakk Wylde strings on a whim when placing my regular Just Strings order. I put the Zakk Wyldes on my Carparelli S4 last night and WOW!! What a difference! These strings just scream! Plus, they feel so amazing! My S4 is sounding just like Jimmy Page from '72! “I'm currently using Dunlop 2016’s on two Les Paul style guitars. I'm very impressed so far. I like the tone and feel of these strings - tight lows and strong mids, easy on the fingers and good tension on a 24.75" scale guitar. These strings break in very easily and stay in tune with very little stretching required.” Another happy player says, “Best I have ever used. Out last the others and they rarely break. Outstanding strings!!!”
