OVERVIEW

Rich tone and great sustain!

Gauges 09-11-16-26-36-46.

Pure Blues electric guitar strings from DR Strings are designed 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 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!

These things are AWESOME!!

Comments about DR Strings PHR9/46 Pure Blues Nickel Lite'n'Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

I absolutely recommend these strings!! They are by far the best strings on the market! And I've used a lot of strings, Markleys, D'darrios, the entire Ernie Ball line, Elixirs, etc.. And no other string even comes close. I have a Floyd Rose double-locking trem, and some brands just don't like it. They break, or don't stretch right with it, these are PERFECT!! They stay in tune, they're hand wound!! They last a LONG time! I play 8+ hours a week, depending on my work schedule, and had a set almost last a year! They would have, but I replaced them due to being totally worn out! The top three strings were wore down over halfway from the frets! And they were still in tune, locked-down, and whammied hard every night I played! What other string can claim that kind of life!? There's a reason why Dimebag endorsed these strings: THEY ARE AWESOME!!!

    These 'Pure Blues' round wound on round cores DR strings sound and feel and Last the best of all the strings I have tried over all the years until I discovered them as 'Tite-Fit DR's about 15 years ago, now even better 'Pure Blues'. To me, they play the best....'nuf said....

      Comments about DR Strings PHR9/46 Pure Blues Nickel Lite'n'Heavy Electric Guitar Strings:

      I've used a lot of strings over the years and hands down, the DR Pure Blues are my favorite. First, they FEEL amazing to play. Round nickel over a round core feels great under the fingers and makes fretting easier with less finger fatigue. Second, the tone is great. They sound BIG, full, and balanced. I like shimmering treble and deep, taut bass. These stings provide it. These strings sound great on all my Guitars: 2 Gibson Les Pauls, a PRS, a Carvin, a Parker, a Strat, and an Epiphone. I use Enie Ball Earthwoods on my acoustics. Musicians Friend is great because they don't charge shipping even on smaller purchases (such as strings).
