    hello TB'ers
    Has anyone tried
    Rotosound RS66LH Drop Zone Stainless Steel Roundwound's
    iv never tried 'drop tuning' strings,but i always seem to tune down standards,so maybe i should buy a set that is actually made specifically for it....do they do a comfortable job at this guage?

    These aren't for drop tuning like you might think, you should know. Going by those numbers, those are actually meant to be tuned BEAD.

    That said, they should work in BEAD.

    That set is for bead tuning.

    Rotosound makes singles readily available for custom tunings

    I have a question about those drop tuned bass strings like the rotosound drop zone bass strings and the dr drop down tuning strings. are they essentially the same thing as heavy gauge strings or are more or less a modified version of heavy gauge strings?

    Most of these sorts of sets are meant for standard intervals (4ths) with a lower root or base note. Yes, they are essentially heavy gauge strings, not meant for drop tunings where the lowest string is off a 5th as opposed to a 4th.
