RC JG Dynamic White

Post by APK » Mon Jun 05, 2017 7:34 pm

Hi,

I attended a guitar festival recently and received, as part of the registration package, a set of medium tension Royal Classic JC Dynamic White strings. They were donated by Strings by Mail and, in response to an email in which I asked for information about tone, composition, etc., Matt wrote the following: "it is a new material. The tine falls right in between nylon and carbon. Please give them a try. They are very unique."

Has anyone had experience with the JC Dynamic Whites? I'd be very interested to hear what people think.

Best,
A

I've been using a complimentary set from SBM, for about 2 weeks now. I think they well earn the description "dynamic." I find them capable of louder playing and greater dynamic range compared to what I've been using (Galli Titanio, light or medium.) Tone wise and nuance? OK, very nice, but no better! The trebles are on the, full, "sweeter" side and not so much brilliant or brighter. Personally, the dynamic range is not necessary for my living room playing context, and the cost, on the premium end is a deterrent. At the moment I have no idea of their longevity, and thus overall economy of using them. One other matter, although I find RC's medium tension OK, I would prefer light tension. However the RC are not available in lights, only medium or hard.

I like to purchase strings on the lower end price range, buy lots for a price break, and change them frequently, every 3-4 weeks. To me, fresh strings always sound better! Perhaps, I will change my mind about that in a few more weeks of using the RCs? They are very nice strings, in any case.

Thank you, Eberhard, for the detailed and balanced response. I appreciate having your sense of both the strengths and the weaknesses of the Dynamic Whites.

SBM continues to promote these strings, "extending their 2017 GFA promotion to all - 50% off both normal tension DW90 and high tension DW70." These RC strings are well worthwhile, even more so, at their promotional price. I just ordered 10 sets and my only concern is getting hooked on them. As I stated earlier, I'm usually not in the habit of using premium strings.

I hoarded an unhealthy amount of these off of the last sale, but I am waiting until I deplete my stash of Mari 100ps before testing them. It will be tough to beat those Mari trebles, although the bass could use a little boost in character. I'm surprised that not many people has responded; it would seem that between the giveaway and the 50% off sale, our resident string gurus should have had their mitts on these already at the very least. Based on their ad of it being between nylon and carbon, how would these compare to titanium strings?

In my opinion, they are not as bright as carbon but closer to titanium.
