DR, Rare phosphor bronze strings
DR handmade strings are the only guitar strings made in America, one at a time. DR™ uses a careful process that keeps the core wire under high tension equal to, or greater than the string tension at concert pitch. They're made with very high pressure while holding the wrapped material by hand—the core material does not have to be soft to avoid breakage on high-speed machinery. This actually means that more metal is compressed into the string than with equivalent strings from other manufacturers. The DR™ .042" string contains more metal than a comparable .044".
Gauge: .012", .016", .024", .032", .042", .054"
Phosphor bronze acoustic guitar strings wound on hexagonal cores. Low tension...the sound is loud and warm. The Rare phosphor bronze acoustic strings are a departure from the standard, good quality bronze string currently available...not necessarily better, but possessing a new, different and stronger “voice”. When DR set out to produce a string with new characteristics, our goal was to redesign contemporary thinking about what phosphor bronze can do for a good acoustic guitar. Hand-carved arch-tops, dreadnaughts, and good steel-string acoustic guitars made of rosewood, maple, and mahogany seem to benefit from a distinct improvement in tone, depth, and sustain with Rare phosphor strings. Players who want a fatter and louder sound, as well as a deeper bottom (who like to hear their guitars ring out) will appreciate the Rare phosphor tone, sound, and feel.
