DR Pure Blues are the ultimate combination strings! Thick, full depth and flexibility from a big round core, with the bite and edge of stainless steel and warmth of pure nickel.

Pure Blues are wound with DR’s unique Quantum Nickel alloy which is the combination of stainless steel and pure nickel creating a uniquely balanced tone. This material lends itself to such a vast range of playing styles and player demands making it the best option in versatility.

The round steel core has greater mass, deeper tone, and more flexibility than its hexagonal counterpart as well having complete and consistent contact with the outer wrap wire.

“These strings have more sustain and flexibility,” says Victor Wooten, “I can remember the first time I tried Pure Blues and they sounded great!”.



**PLEASE NOTE** These strings measure 37.75" / 96 cm from the ball end to the start of the taper. These strings have no silk winding at either end of the string.

Are these strings the correct length for my bass?

We insist that players use the measurement of ball-end (anchor) to top nut of their current set of strings.  This measurement is more accurate than scale length as it takes into account through-body stringing, and more complex or alternative bridges.  In many cases the set of strings required will be longer than the bass’s stated scale length!  Use these references:

If ball-end-to-nut length is:

Up to 32” choose Short Scale

32”-34” choose Medium Scale

34”-36” choose Long Scale

36”-38” choose Extra/Super Long Scale

If you have a bass where you cannot see the ball-end i.e. a thru-body bass, you will have to measure your string once it has been removed. Before removing the string be sure to make a mark on the string with a permanent marker just behind the nut so you know where to measure to. Then once you’ve taken it off the bass, you can measure from the ball-end to the mark you made on the string.
