BORN FROM GUITARS
“There is a sound missing in the market,” said Al Dronge, founder of Guild Guitars, to his son Mark. In 1989, Mark founded DR Strings to reintroduce round core strings and provide that missing sound. When a wrap wire is wound around a round core, the string is able to move more naturally when plucked. This compliments the sound of acoustic, electric and bass guitars by providing rich and balanced overtones and a fundamental with great sustain.
Over the years, many of the world’s best guitar builders have chosen to string their instruments with DR Strings, continuing our legacy of being “born from guitars”. This list below includes just a few of the growing number of companies we are proud to make music with.
MADE IN USA - WITH ONLY AMERICAN MATERIALS
DR Strings are proudly made in Westwood, New Jersey. We use only the finest American made materials, starting with the core and wrap wire, to the ball ends, to the final packaging. When someone sees the DR logo, that is what they are getting, the best of everything.
