Great for drop tunings lower than D
December 4, 2013
I got these out of the curiosity of there being a .120 gauge string and seeing that Dunlop has a 5 string set with the same gauges plus a .040 for the G. I don't own a 5 string and prefer 4 string tuned down, I used these strings in C#,C,B and even A# tunings before they got too loose to play. Great for essentially most 5 string bass tunings on a 4 string. I'd even go as low as A if there was a .130 instead. Super bright sounding, lots of dynamic range, gets good growls with finger playing, and full sound when slapped. And they last an extremely long time. It does require some filing of the nut and bridge so the ball end makes it to the bridge but otherwise so worth it if your tuning lower than D.
