Sunbeam phosphor bronze strings are handwound upon round cores which give a terrific result...wonderful sustain...remarkable sustain. The tone does not seem to decay as do other phosphor bronze strings, which we think of as decaying in a curve.

The Sunbeam phosphor seem to sustain in a straight line, until the sound “falls off”. The Sunbeam phosphor are also musically bright, and rich sounding. Additionally they are very flexible...more so than any other string we have played.

Gauge RCA-11 - 11, 15, 22, 30, 40, 50. (Medium-Lite)

Made in the USA

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.

DR Handmade Sunbeam Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings (11-50)

DR Sunbeams are my string of choice as the round cores bring out the vintage tone of my old style small bodied guitars. They need care when installing, so please read the instructions (seems some reviewers haven't).
