Pure nickel electric guitar strings wound on round cores.
In the DR tradition of using old-style construction to improve modern performance, PHR-11 Pure Blues electric guitar strings are designed with pure nickel wrap wire, round wound on round cores. While this is a slow, expensive method of string making, it does produce a string acclaimed for increased sustain, vintage tone and great low tones for playing rhythm to lead. The extra step of winding pure nickel around a round core gives the Pure Blues a punch that players say they are surprised to get in a vintage style string.

Comments about DR Strings PHR-11 Pure Blues Heavy Electric Strings - Buy Two, Get One Free:
Tried these on a recommendation from another musician playing same type of music (instro surf). There is a definite but almost indescribable increase in the smoothness of tone from the strings. Not necessarily brighter than hex-core round-wounds, but almost seem as if they have less tension on them although nothing that necessitates a truss-rod adjustment. The exception would be that the 3rd (G) is a bit brighter on a Strat with vintage pickups & staggered pole pieces, but something Strat owners deal with. On something like a Jaguar or Jazzmaster they are awesome. For someone who's been looking for more consistency but didn't want to go to flats these could be just the ticket. I do notice that they pulled in and STAY that way faster than the D'Addario EXL's I've been using on the Jazzmaster, and the EXL's are a darn fine string in their own right.
