    Great Strings for low tuning

    i tune to drop C (CGCFAD) and i have always had an issue between finding the right tension for having the string ring and also still tight enough to return to the note. this is the perfect balance for me. just heavy enough so that when i dig in im not afraid to since im heavy handed. these last a good amount of time as well and the price is perfect for being able to pick up a dozen without emptying out your bank.

    Great For Down Tuning

    I use these for B tuning on a Dean VX for a light feel and they work nicely. With a even distribution of tension as well. Heavier on the bottom and lighter on top. They stay in tune decently, and I've even done some Drop A on this set too. Overall bright and durable for a long time. The only thing I could say I didn't like was the Plain G or on this specific set a Plain D#. I would prefer a wound G when tuning down a 4th but its really more preference. It isn't bad ,it has a matching tone with the other strings but it tends to go out of tune first. Otherwise, everything intonates fine and plays awesomely from A to C tuning range when down tuning.Great D'addario quality, and very comfortable to play.
