VERITAS™ - Coated Core Acoustic Guitar Strings
VERITAS™ Acoustic Guitar Strings maintain their tone, tuning stability and intonation thanks to our Coated Core Technology™, a process of coating the round core wire, which locks the wrap wire in place and extends string life by protecting the core from corrosion. A phosphor bronze wrap wire delivers a traditionally bright tone and natural feel. All VERITAS™ sets include both standard plain steel AND Xenon Power-Plain™ strings, which have increased output to balance with the wound strings.
RARE™ - Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings
RARE™ Acoustic Guitar Strings utilize a phosphor bronze wrap wire over a hexagonal high-carbon steel core. The result is warm, bright and balanced tone with an overall fatter and louder sound with a deep bottom end. Acoustic guitars of all types seem to benefit from a distinct improvement in tone, depth, and sustain.
DRAGON SKIN™ - Clear Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings
DRAGON SKIN™ Acoustic Guitar Strings feature DR’s K3™ clear coating on a phosphor bronze wrap wire to prevent dirt and perspiration from reaching the hexagonal core wire, preventing corrosion. The K3™ coating, which is applied to all strings in the set, is ultra-hard and doesn’t dampen vibration like softer coatings do. The strings have more projection, fewer unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation than uncoated strings.
SUNBEAM™ - Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings
SUNBEAM™ Acoustic Guitar Strings utilize a phosphor bronze wrap wound on a round high-carbon steel core. The use of the round core increases flexibility and produces a long sustain that fades slowly and evenly without any sudden drop-offs. SUNBEAM™ phosphor bronze strings are musically bright and rich sounding.
HI-BEAM™ - 80/20 Brass Acoustic Guitar Strings
HI-BEAM™ Acoustic Guitar Strings feature a hexagonal core wound with an 80/20 bronze wrap wire. They produce exceptional brightness and projection that can be heard clearly in any ensemble, especially bluegrass and other all-acoustic groups. They also enrich and brighten duller sounding guitars or those with heavier bracing.
ZEBRA™ - Acoustic-Electric Guitar Strings
ZEBRA™ Acoustic Guitar Strings are made for acoustic-electric guitars with piezo pickups under the bridge or magnetic pickups in the sound hole. By alternating nickel-plated steel and phosphor bronze wrap wires every other coil on a round core wire, DR has created the perfect hybrid string that has significantly better output while maintaining a desirable acoustic tone. They’re ideal for archtop jazz guitars.
SILVER STARS™ - SILVER PLATED & Clear Coated Acoustic Guitar Strings
SILVER STARS™ Acoustic Guitar Strings are made with a silver-plated copper wrap wire with DR’s proprietary K3™ clear coating wound on hexagonal core wire. In addition to having an old-school look, SILVER STARS™ possess a modern brightness and less string noise thanks to the coating. The ultra-hard K3 coating doesn’t dampen vibration like softer coatings do, yet results in longevity, more projection, fewer unwanted overtones, and greater clarity and articulation than uncoated strings.
