Heavy metal/hard rock players may overlook this, but guitar strings make a huge difference in sound -- particularly when you play electric guitar with distortion.

Do you like my guitar playing? Check out MY ORIGINAL METAL SONG: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-6Ky1...

I have tried out several string models (and submodels) during all my years playing guitar, including D'addario, Ernie Ball, GHS, Exilir and DR. In my opinion, Dunlop is the best string brand for heavy metal playing.

To demonstrate Dunlop's quality, I discuss the following topics on this video:

. Overall sound
. Cleanliness & definition
. Break-in time & tuning stability
. Fret buzz "muffle"

My gear on this video:

. Jackson King V KV2 with Seymour Duncan pickups (TB-4 bridge / JB SH-4 neck) & Floyd Rose tremolo
. Gibson Tribal Explorer with 500T / 496R Gibson pickups & Kahler 2215K tremolo
. Line 6 Spider IV amplifier (150 Watts) with built-in Insane distortion model
