Perfect for Drop tuning 4 string bassist
I was happy to find drop tuning strings for bass finally after looking at other companies, dunlop seems to get that both guitarist and bassist detune, not just guitars -_-. Its basically dunlop's light 5 string set without the G, so you save money not having to buy a 5 string set and wasting the extra string. And its a size that most manufacturers do not make, .115 and .120 gauge bass strings are so hard to find ,so it makes it almost impossible to tune lower than D and then giving up and getting a costly and not always necessary 5 string bass, leaving the comfortability of a 4 string. The strings themselves are bright and growly, perfect for really mostly anything. Finger, pick or slap pop playing styles and optimal for rock and metal and much more. No bulls**t , these work pretty damn well especially trying other companies like ernie ball, d'addario, and DR. These definitely are not cheap or gimmicky strings. These are just as good if not better, very competitive, Dunlop has me hooked. These are very heavy tensioned for D standard, its equivalent to heavy 110's in E standard, do not tune them any higher, works best with D and lower. I can play Slipknot, Type O Negative and many other bands as so without flappy ill-fitting strings or an unneeded 5 string.
