With handpicked gauges for a full dynamic range and exceptional stability when downtuned, these strings give Trivium's Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu the freedom to create the music they love with peak performance and playability.
Jim Dunlop Heavy Core electric strings are manufactured at their factory HQ in Benicia, California. With 50 years of experience and a developed understanding of a guitar players’ needs, Dunlop has a produced a string that sings with tone and plays with perfect tension and flexibility. As a guitarist, you want a string that feels comfortable to play but delivers power and nuance, Jim Dunlop Performance+ strings are your new string. Trust me. Heavy Core strings designed specifically for drop tunings, so you can maintain a good playing tension even when tuning to doom territory!
So, there are a few of us (loads of us) who love to ‘dig in’ when we play - all hail the riffers! 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 brightness and clarity. Furthermore, the added bonus of a heavier core is, of course, heavier tone!
Jim Dunlop says:
"Trivium's Matt Heafy and Corey Beaulieu need gear that keeps up with their creative drive. That's why they came to the Dunlop String Lab and designed their own set of Heavy Core® Strings, with each gauge handpicked to keep notes stable and focused at lowered tunings while offering a full dynamic range that's balanced with vivid highs and rich lows. This set gives Matt and Corey the freedom to create the music they love with peak performance and playability.
"Since the beginning, Trivium has used Dunlop Strings ”the exact same custom set you are holding in your hands," say Corey and Matt. "We have vastly different equipment and playing styles, but the one constant between us is ”and has always been ”Dunlop's world-class strings."
