Great strings, last a very long time in my experience compared to the Daddario 12-60 gauge strings they replaced.
Sound good but tone does dull down after awhile like with all strings. I'm yet to break a single string in my two years of using these on my Les Paul tuned to E standard and have great tuning stability but I think that's more down to my Les Pauls hardware than anything as I've never had any issues with tuning stability ever on that guitar compared to other past and present. All in all for £5 they're a bargain.
Also they have decent corrosion resistance and have I guess a "heavy" tone to them when distorted. Perfect for powerchords. Also have good clarity and definition.
(“Heavier” 11-50 set) Great for D Standard, good for Drop C
I recently ordered these strings to try on my spare guitar in D Standard. They feel perfect in that tuning and I wouldn’t change anything about them, but I’ve been playing more in Drop C and they can pull that off too. The low C is a little bit floppy but still sounds good and will do the job if you’re gentle with it. The strings are cheap, made very well, and last long. Now I have another set in Drop C on my main guitar and will probably use them for years to come.
Dunlop heavy core
I'm a metal guy. I've been using these heavy cores since I started guitar. I've used the 12-54 primarily. When they're new, they're great. After several months in South Carolina's humidity, they die and go flat. More so than Ernie Ball paradigms. But they're worth the price. I use dunlop.
