This is a set of DR nickel wound TITE-FIT electric guitar strings, 11-50.

Comprising most of their catalogue DR Strings are arguably the brand for round core guitar strings. Building on this classic guitar string construction DR uses the most advanced and high-quality materials and modern wrapping techniques to make these strings really stand out from the crowd.

The innate benefits of round core strings are strong fundamental tones with full bass, balanced overtones, and flexible feel. String making began with round cores and although it’s a more time-consuming build process - convincing many brands to migrate to the cheaper hex core - DR has opted for fuller tone, rich sustain, and pliability of the round core.

The DR Tite-Fit range utilises Compression Winding which is the method of tightly wrapping the outer wire allowing for more mass on the string and closer connection culminating in more tone and far smoother feel than the typical round wound string; it also has the surprising benefit of longer-life due to the reduction in space between windings for corrosive dirt to buildup. Furthermore, the Tite-Fit wrap wire is the highest quality nickel-plated steel providing the optimum balance of fullness and brightness for electric guitar.
