Awesome For Those Low Tunings

Great for drop tunings. I use it for tunings like C# Standard, Drop B, and Drop A#. I tried it with Drop C at first and found it to be pretty stiff and bends were very hard. But holds up great for low tunings. The tone is great and the feel of the strings are great. If you're looking for Drop C strings you should get the next lighter set.

DR DDT 12-60

I do like this brand a lot but I think it could use a bit more work. The 12-60 set works great for C or B as well as Drop A and Bb. The 52 really anchors down the tension on the guitar yet the rest of the strings including the 52 are easy to play. Unfortunately I do think they should re work this pack, the 20 plain is too damn loose, at least change it to a 22 plain and the 60 that I had in my pack got really loose quick even if I tuned to C which is pretty tight for a 60. Otherwise great for Drop tuning from C# to A. Probably would be as good as baritone sets too if you play baritone.
