Dunlop Manufacturing have announced a new product for the drop tuning heavy metal freaks out there called Heavy Core, these strings are 12 – 54 gauge Nickel Steel so they aren’t going to sound all loose and mushy when you tune to drop C or whatever your preference is.

Heavy Core® Strings are uniquely designed for the player that enjoys higher tension at standard tuning or normal tension at dropped tunings. Our proprietary core-to-wrap ratios are meticulously calculated so the player can really “dig in” while retaining sound fundamentals. Heavy Core® Strings, like all Dunlop Strings are manufactured with the highest quality of materials and engineered for great tone, balance, and feel.
