Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings wound on Hexagonal Cores.

Gauge

RPM-12 - 12, 16, 24, 32, 42, 54.


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, their goal was to redesign contemporary thinking about what phosphor bronze can do for a good acoustic guitar.

Hand-carved arch-tops, dreadnoughts 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.

Gauge

RPM-12 - 12, 16, 24, 32, 42, 54.

 

DR Handmade Strings, brainchild of Al Dronge, founder of Guild Guitars and passed onto his son Mark Dronge, is a company that takes pride in producing handmade strings on a big scale in a market where machines are increasingly more prominent.  DR Handmade Strings consider handcrafted strings, American made, with American materials often more accurate and consistent than machine made and also re-established the importance of round core strength.  The DR ZEBRA strings which were the first out of the factory are made alternating between phosphor bronze and nickel plated steel windings.  Dr Handmade Strings introduced the first colour coated strings in 2001 advancing to NEON coating strings in 2010.  The latest DR DDT drop down tuning sets are optimized for low tuning retaining tuning, stability and tension.

Fan of DR Electric strings, so checking out these acoustics for a change

Feels like dropping a gauge

I’ve always been sceptical about strings offering great tone with a lower tension - they either lose out on tone and volume or they’re just as hard to play as another set. These have really surprised me. OK, the volume is ever so slightly down, but the tone is lovely. And the feel is amazing - supple and bendy, as though I’d dropped down to 11s - my Gibson L00 has been transformed. Really impressed.
