Is there any other genre of music that values heaviness as much as metal? As fans of extreme music, we wanna feel the massive weight of the music crashing down on us and crushing us to dust. It’s the goal of every metal musician in the history of the genre — but those musicians can’t do it alone. They need the right tools for their trade… tools like Dunlop Heavy Core strings, the only guitar and bass strings specially designed for the player that plays in dropped or lowered tunings. Incorporating a unique core wire and proprietary wrap ratios to offer players the ability to really “dig in” while retaining a tight low end, focused midrange, and smooth top-end when playing clean or distorted, Dunlop Heavy Core Strings are the premiere strings for metal musicians everywhere.
MetalSucks, Metal Injection, and Dunlop recently asked you to submit the heaviest breakdown you could possibly write in exchange for the chance to win some boxes of these bad boys… and more. We recieved a lot of great entries, but in the end, only the heaviest of the heavy could win.
GRAND-PRIZE WINNER: Nik Kefalas
For his nullifying heavy breakdown, Nik wins a Dunlop MXR Super Badass Distortion pedal and two boxes of his preferred gauge and type (six string guitar, seven string guitar, or bass) of Dunlop Heavy Core strings (6 packs per box for guitar, 3 packs per box for bass). Congrats to Nik! Here's his breakdown:
Meanwhile, the runners-up each win their preferred gauge and type of Dunlop Heavy Core strings! Here are their entries, in no particular order:
Congrats again to all the winners! If you didn't win, don't forget that you can still purchase Dunlop Heavy Core strings here. And remember… stay heavy!!!
