Rich tone and great sustain!

Gauges 12-15-24-32-42-52.

Pure Blues electric guitar strings are designed by DR Strings with pure nickel wrap wire, roundwound 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 gives Pure Blues strings a punch that players say they are surprised to get in a vintage string. Sounds great on any guitar!

Comments about DR Strings PHR12 Pure Blues Nickel Extra Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

Perhaps these strings would have worked out better for me if I would have read the special instructions in how to put them on. I really loved the tone of the strings, but I would caution anyone to take time and read the instructions on the pack so you won't run into the problems I had with balance and intonation.

The Vintage Tone Your Vintage Pups Deserve

By ToneFreak

from Kentucky

Comments about DR Strings PHR12 Pure Blues Nickel Extra Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

If your guitar sports quality single coil pups with the vintage staggered pole design, and you are looking for that vintage tone that's just out of reach, try this set. Ever notice how that plain steel G is jumping out in an unpleasant fashion ? Well, that staggered pole design was meant to increase the balance of your strings back when 3rd wound sets were the norm. And when pure nickel strings were the norm.DR hits a homer with this set. Check 'em out.

Comments about DR Strings PHR12 Pure Blues Nickel Extra Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

I was just looking for replacement fender strings when i found these. They are excellent. These strings have worked great on all my electric guitars and they last a really long time. I love these strings, and i wont use any other now.
