So, there are a few of us (loads of us) who love to ‘dig in’ when we play - all hail the riffers! Jim Dunlop thankfully make strings specifically for this. With proprietary core-to-wrap ratios, these strings literally have a heavier/thicker core which offers that little extra strength and resistance to give us confidence when we really want to attack a riff or more energetic part of a song.

As with all Jim Dunlop strings they feel soft and springy with bucket loads of brightness and clarity. Furthermore, the added bonus of a heavier core is, of course, heavier tone!

Top marks to whoever designed the string pack too. Love it!

A word from Jim Dunlop:
"Heavy Core guitar strings are uniquely designed with Dunlop's proprietary core-to-wrap ratios that are meticulously calculated so the guitar player can really "dig in" while retaining sound fundamentals. Heavy Core strings (like all of Dunlop's replacement guitar strings) are manufactured with the highest quality materials and are engineered for great tone, balance, and feel. Dunlop Heavy Core® electric guitar strings are made with great pride in Benicia, California and specially designed for the player that plays in dropped or lowered tunings. The Heavy Core strings incorporate a unique core wire and proprietary wrap ratios to offer players the ability to really "dig in" while retaining a tight low end, focused midrange and smooth top-end when playing clean or distorted. Every set of Dunlop Strings come packaged utilizing three levels of moisture protection and sealed in a VCI Fresh Technology (Vapor Corrosion Inhibitor) bag to guarantee that your strings arrive as fresh as the day they were made."
