    Dunlop released their new Heavy Core Bass Strings! Three sets designed for downtuning while maintaining a comfortable standard string feel. They produce big punchy lows, articulate mids, and crunchy highs.

    Available in 3 gauges:

    Heavy - 45-105
    Heavier - 55-115
    Heavies - 55-120

    They are designed for Down Tuning but can also be used for Drop Tuning!

    What are the 45-105's like if you tune them EADG?

    Correct, or you can down tune them. While tuned in E-Standard they will be higher tension than their DBN45105 set (Standard 45-105 NPS)

    Well, they are meant for 4 string's... But I guess you can add a higher string for a High C or G string. They may have B strings in the works for future release, I can nudge them about that though ;)

    Are these stainless or nickelplated?

    How do these compare to the DR DDT's tone wise. I like the brightness of the DR's. Also is there any chance the Dunlops will come out in a stainless set?
