These do the job!
I bought these to tune my American Elite Precision down to DGCF, and they're really great. They were stable almost immediately and sound perfect for me. Nice and bright, but not harsh. Tension feels right too. I've also tuned them down to BEAD to see what they were like. They were still very stable and sounded pretty good, but the tension is obviously not there. But for DGCF, really, you can't go wrong.

Well done DR!
I recently bought this set, plus a single .135 B string, for my 35" scale 5er. I tune G#C#G#C#F#. I normally used Hi-Beams before, and these strings have a very similar feel and sound. The low G# was my main concern, and there is a noticeable difference in that strings clarity. Tuned that low, of course I can't expect a tight piano sound hahaha, but these strings definitely help. I normally used a .130, so the string size difference is negligible. There really is something to these strings, no gimmick. If you tune down and are looking for a little more clarity, give these a try!

DR DDTs
Playing blues 1/2 step down tuning.
Strings hold tuning well, have a full sound, consistent output string to string. Intonation holds after adjusting. Not as bright as High Beams. Tension is good, not floppy on 4 string Jazz 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.
