Dunlop Expands Accessories Range with New Strings and
Tonebars for 2013 -
Accessory kings Dunlop are spoiling musicians everywhere in 2013
with the release of a great new range of USA-made bass strings and
The Heavy Core Bass Strings line is designed for rock and metal
players who like to downtune and dig in to their strings for a huge
low end sound. Instead of simply making thicker strings, Dunlop
developed specific core-to-wrap ratios that deliver the optimal
balance of tone and tension, meaning the strings maintain a natural
feel while providing punchy lows, articulate mids and crunchy highs
when tuned below E standard.
Heavy Core bass strings are available from Spring 2013 priced at
£29.99rrp in the following gauges: Heavy (45-105), Heavier (55-115)
and Heaviest (55-120).
Meanwhile, Dunlop's new Tapered B Bass Strings come in 5 and
6-string sets, and feature higher tension for tighter lows,
increased sustain and more accurate intonation. The 5-string
(£29.99rrp, gauges 45-125) and 6-string (£34.99rrp, gauges 30-130)
sets are both available in nickel or stainless steel, so there's
something for every type of bassist here.
For six-stringers, Dunlop's Mudslide line is now bolstered by two
new Tonebars: the Classic and the ceramic/glass Hybrid.
Ceramic has long been a favoured material among slide players
for its rich warm tone on both electric and acoustic instruments,
and the Mudslide Classic Style Tonebar (£44.99rrp) brings these
qualities to the lap and pedal steel player's world for new and
dynamic sounds. A glaze coating over its playing surface increases
sustain and provides a smooth and fast surface to glide over the
The Mudslide Hybrid Tonebar combines the singing brightness of
glass with the rich and full resonating tone of ceramic. This
lightweight tonebar's handle is unglazed bisque, providing a porous
and gripping material that absorbs sweat and reduces hand
Available from Spring 2013, these new accessories show Dunlop's
unfaltering desire to provide musicians with everything they need
to get on with making the best music they can - with the best
materials available. Make sure you check them out when you next
visit your local music store!
