$5.49
EJ16Phosphor bronze acoustic guitar strings wound on hexagonal cores. Low tension…the sound is loud and warm. The RARE phos bronze acoustic strings are a departure from standard, good quality bronze strings currently available…not necessarily better, but possessing a new, different, and stronger “voice” When DR set out to produce a handmade string with new characteristics, our goal was to redesign contemporary thinking about what phos bronze can do for a good acoustic guitar. Excellent “flat-top” guitars, dreadnaughts, hand carved arch tops of rosewood, maple and mahogany seem to benefit from a distinct improvement in tone, depth and sustain with RARE phosphor strings.

Sunbeam

Medium (.012-.054)

Add to Cart

$5.49
EJ16Phosphor bronze strings are handwound upon round cores for wonderful sustain. The tone does not seem to decay as do other phos bronze strings, which DR thinks of as decaying on a curve. The Sunbeam phosphor seems to sustain in a straight line, until the sound “falls off” The Sunbeam phosphors are musically bright, rich sounding and quite flexible.

EJ1680/20 acoustics are designed for extra brightness, to cut through the ensemble playing of bluegrass musicians as well as derive extra clarity from heavily braced or dull sounding guitars. Wrapped upon a hex core the new “HI-BEAM” 80/20 are handmade and hand wound for great tone and increased longevity.



Acoustic Electric

Zebra

Medium (.012-.054)

Add to Cart

$5.99
EJ16Zebra strings came about from DR’s efforts to create strings that would improve acoustic sounds as well as electric sounds of all acoustic/electric guitars. Many players agree that DR has successfully achieved this by winding phosphor bronze plated steel wire side-by-side with 8% nickel plated steel wire. While the phos bronze brings out the acoustic tones of your guitar, the 8% nickel plated steel is designed to increase the response of a piezo pickup in the bridge, or a magnetic pickup mounted in the sound hole as well as pickups in archtop guitars.



Electric Strings

Dimebag High Voltage

EJ16Dimebag played DR’s “strings of strength” from 1995 on. “I like the way DR Strings feel and react, you can really get the grip on them. They’re great for everything from big ol’ string bends, to huge whammy bar dives, perfect for blood curdling harmonic screams and straight out heavy chunky riffin’. They also stay in perfect tune and remain fresh and bright for an amazingly long time.” Keep shreddin’ Dimebag, in our hearts he lives!

EJ16Tite-Fit round-wound nickel plated electric guitar strings are designed to be a great all-around string. They are available in a wide range of gauges. Based upon a round core, the construction techniques for the Tite-Fit electrics are very old. However, the core wire and wrap wire in DR's are the latest, most advanced and expensive metals available. For flexibility, for tone, for long life; for rock, blues, heavy metal, jazz… Tite-fits are an incredible all-around string. Our most popular electric guitar set.

EJ16In the DR tradition of using old style construction to improve modern performance, PURE-BLUES electric guitar strings are designed with pure nickel wrap wire, round wound upon round cores. While this is a slow, expensive method of string making, it does produce a string acclaimed for increased sustain, vintage tone, and great low tones for playing rhythm to lead. The extra step of winding pure nickel around a round core gives the PURE-BLUES a punch that players say they are surprised to get in a vintage string. Sounds great on any vintage guitar!
