"Pure Blues revive a more original and vintage electric guitar tone. The wrap wire is warm-sounding pure nickel and the core is round which has great sustain and a nice flexible feel.  To my ear they’re actually brighter and punchier than other pure nickel strings which must be down to the core:wrap ratio. In fact, I find them more akin to modern electric guitar strings with a little more flex.

DR says the build process is slower and more expensive than other modern strings and I think that is reflected in the feel of the strings, but thankfully not the price!" - Stringsdirect

Pure Blues electric guitar strings from DR 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 guitar string acclaimed for increased sustain, vintage tone, and great low tones for playing music from rhythm to lead. The extra step of winding pure nickel around a round core give Pure Blues strings a punch that players say they are surprised to get in a vintage electric guitar string. Sounds great on any guitar!

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 PURE BLUES Pure Nickel Electric Guitar Strings, 9-42 Light

My bridge humbucker was too bright and tinny with ordinary strings, these strings saved me having to change the pickup, amazing sound very rich and clear even with distortion pedal, I never ever thought pure nickel wound strings and a round core would have such an impact on sound
