Very, very surprised.
I could not believe how each string felt as I strung up my Franken Tele. When I got to the .007", I felt as though I may cause damage by unraveling it. The word gossamer came to mind... anyway. Once stretched and the guitar intoned, I found it hard to believe that something so light had such good tone and felt so good. They felt good! I chose the home built Tele because I had put a set of SD Hot Rails in it. Nice and hot. I'm sold. Awesome set of strings.

these strings hit the spot...
I wanted something nice on my Les Paul...and these strings REALLY hit the spot...won't string it with anything else...the feel, the tone and durability are it...I use "other" strings (Dunlop and D'Addario) on my teles and strats and they work fine, but this is the match I was looking for on the LP...I do use gotta add that Strings and Beyond have great prices and customer service...good reason I've been buying from them for three years...
Prosquality, tone, feel, customer service +++
Consthere are none..

Testing
I purchased 2 set to try them out. I bought the 009 set.(can't use anything any smaller due to the fact I have B and G benders on all my years) and it caused too many tuning issues. After 40 years of touring I have used every kind of guitar string made. Either by endorsements or by preference. I strung my 59 Esquire with your string and immediately noticed a midranges spank that. I haven't gotten out of any other strings. I am sold Buckaroo's. I will definitely be a repeat customer a case at a time. If you guys have any I will wear them in high profile situations. Don't Change a thing!
ProsSpank,stays in tune. Will recommend to all guitar players I know!
ConsNONE

Adds a new dimension in expression !
Because of their ease of bending, these strings take a bit of working with, (especially if you don't have a light touch). But when you dial it in, these strings will open a new creative door for you ! As I have read, "Would Rev Willy let you down ?". Best string purchase in a very long time !!!
ProsAbstractly: Like finding a new set of colors to play with ! Reasonably priced.
ConsMay frustrate some players because of the lighter touch needed.

What a difference
First I want to thank Strings and Beyond and Chris for there hospitality. I have used the usual suspect of strings out there and was looking for a better brighter string. Decided to roll the dice and try the Rev. Willy's and boy did I hit the jackpot. I have guitars with active and passive pickups and these strings give you tight focused picking dynamics, harmonics all over the fretboard and a smooth bright tone without overkill. Swith to clean channel and it is so pronounced and warm. On distorted channel these baby's shine. My first thought was these sound like strings on steroids. I will stick with these strings and say goodbye to the rest.
ProsGreat price really easy on the fingers and pocketbook. Tone for days. Honestly the best strings I have ever played. Great harmonics, warm and bright. Like a breath of fresh air.
ConsAbsolutely none

The best strings I ever used.
Since I have developed an as of yet undiagnosed degenerative condition in my hands that has greatly affected both my strength and dexterity,I had to go to a string that was as light a gauge as possible.After using D-Addario .008-.038 for the longest time,the time came that even they were too heavy a gauge.I tried out a set of Rev. Willy's .007-.038 strings and promptly ordered a box of 1 dozen so that I could string several other of my guitars.With these strings I can almost bend them off the neck without even the slightest change in tuning,the same goes for very aggressive vibrato arm usage when I'm doing Hendrix covers.These strings keep their "just out of the package" freshness and clean tone for much longer than 99.9% of other strings plus they resist corrosion much better than most other strings.You'd expect a premium quality string such as these to be much more expensive than other brands,yet they are among the lowest priced strings that are carried by Strings and Beyond.I strongly recommend these strings to anyone who is used to lighter gauged strings of anyone who is suffering from focal dystonia,Raynaud's Phenomenon or any other condition that affects your playing ability in a negative manner.
ProsThey hold their tuning after aggressive bending or vibrato usage and keep their "just out of the package" tone much longer than most other brands.Low price.
ConsIn the most recent carton of 12 sets of strings,the .007 strings on 3 or 4 sets broke within minutes of putting them on.After stringing and setting up guitars for almost 50 years,I know that it wasn't faulty winding etc. so these particular strings must've come from an inferior coil of string wire.

Whodathunkit?
I bought these ( 8-40 ) on a whim because of the super marketing, prepared to throw them on my Telecaster and then throw them away. Normally I use TI Jazz Swing 10-44 and I reckoned these would be junk; funky, but junk. Well I was blown away. Big, airy sound, balanced tone, and sooooo easy on my ageing, damaged, arthritic.fingies. They are a bit thin in high trebles but that can be tweaked at the amp, and they maybe aren't the best for smooth jazz, but for blues and country..... And they stay in tune! You could knock me over with a feather. If they last a quarter as long as the TTs (admittedly c. 8 mos.) they're a shoo in. Hell, they're a shoo in anyhow. Did I mention also that the price is pretty good? I'm trying to steel myself to give the 7s a go.
ProsBig tone, good range, EASY to fret, and cheap.
ConsA bit thin in the highs. My ideal set would be .08, .11, .13, .20, .30, .40.

Very Appealing and easy Squealing
Dunlop/Reverend Willy Mexican Lottery Brand Extra Light strings are tiny bits of nickel-plated steel that make a big sound. You can roll back the tone on your guitar for a classic rock sound or keep it dimed for a classic metal sound and these strings will do your evil bidding (the more evil, the better it's done). The warm-yet-bright tone, extremely slinky/slippery feeling of the plain steel strings, and the crazy-easy harmonics these strings impart have to be experienced in person to believe. I tried some Ernie Ball Cobalt Extra Slinky strings recently and though they have their great points, I came running back to these babies and bought 10 sets from Strings and Beyond when I did. They're a very gratifying string.

Exactly What I was Hoping For
I love these strings. I'm using 9s on an ash-bodied Tele, playing mostly blues and country, and also on a Pawn Shop 51. I particularly like the unwound G string - what great sounds I can get from it! These strings are bright, and really help cut through the mix. Both guitars sound sharper than they did when I was using Super Slinkys. I have pretty much gone completely over to the Rev Willy strings now. And, at 5 bucks a set, I can afford to keep extra sets around. YMMV, as some people do not like the brightness of these strings. Check them out.
ProsInexpensive Unwound G string Bright sound cuts through
ConsNothing.

A True Lottery Winning!! Great strings!!
I took a chance on these with the name and all, but they were buy one get one free, too!! Once strung up, and tuned to pitch, these easily blew away the GHS Boomers I normally use. Lots of clarity, and tone in the lower wound strings, and the unwound sound great too! Overall I would recommend these, particularly to a good friend in L.A., and will definitely buy again!!
