Product Description

The first thing you will notice about the DDT bass strings is that they go right into tune and lock in. Players say they are so stable it is almost eerie. Now you can stand and delivery in tune notes at lower pitch that are clean and clear. Expect more and get more. Change tunings and be surprised how DDTs lock right in. Be surprised how little adjustments you make. DDTs deliver far more than just heavy gauges.

Drop with confidence, drop with accuracy. DDTs maintain their intonation at lower tunings far better than any other string you have ever played or heard. Designed over a two year build and test period to answer the needs of the dark side.

Hear them in action with this video from DR:

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "great stability questionable quality control"
Sound: great sound. these strings are pretty bright sounding which is what i like, they almost sound like stainless strings, i dont know if they are but in drop c they sound very clear. Feature: seem to have a small outer winding so that they are smoother than more rugged strings. Ease of Use: these strings are just like they say super stable so you can drop your action and play fast. Quality: the only problem i have with these strings is that the E string broke on me at the saddle of the bridge. it might have just been a lemon or something but i was in drop C so it didnt have hard tension on it and shouldnt have broken even with heavy picking. this was about two weeks after they were strung up. Value: these strings are expensive but then again theyre hand made so. . .

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "DR are good strings but 55-115 doesnt fit in factory nuts, WARNING"
Overall: you'll have to mostly likely, modify your nut on your bass to get these strings to work, which if you ever want to go back to a lighter string you may need a new nut, frown:( these strings didnt work for me, but im not giving them a bad rating, DR are usually good stuff, just wanted to throw out the warning for the strings not fitting in the nut

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
