OVERVIEW

Tired of everyday strings? You need Rare tone.

Gauges 10-14-24-30-39-48, 10-14-09-12-18-28. Rare Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Strings are a departure from the standard, good-quality bronze string currently available--not necessarily better, but possessing a new, different, and stronger voice. Hand-carved archtops, dreadnoughts, and good steel string acoustic guitars of rosewood, maple, and mahogany benefit from a distinct improvement in tone, depth, and sustain with a fatter, louder sound and a deeper bottom.

FEATURES
  • Gauges 10-14-24-30-39-48, 10-14-09-12-18-28
  • Stronger voice
  • Loud, warm tone

Great for a Taylor

By olrocker

from Idaho by way of SF

Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

Had been using elixir 10-47 nanos on my new Taylor 854ce with spruce/rosewood, and it sounded so thin I considered selling it. Tried these DR P/B uncoated 10-48's and it's a whole new guitar. I can't stop playing it. I even have to turn it down when playing amplified, compared to the settings I used for elixirs, and they're half the price. I'm sure elixers are fine on some guitars, but my Taylor loves DR's!

Best sound yet

Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I had used Martin Marquis for my 12-string to date but always felt that there was more crispness that should be coming from the guitar. I am very happy with the full bass and strong overtones and resonance (between strings). Also, this set doesn't sound thin at all tuned down a whole step (which I always do to extend the life of my 12-string).

Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I was amazed to discover the unopened set of strings packaged in "non-corrosion" packaging badly corroded. The DR box pontificated proudly on their special packaging which evidently did not do the job. I buy strings ahead in bulk so I can restring as needed. What a shock to open a fresh package of DR strings to find them unacceptably corroded. To Musician's Friend's credit, they comped me a new set, but complained that I had had them over 45 days which put them past their warranty period. My question was, "How can I know if strings are corroded if I do not open them until I need them." The salesman said he buys strings ahead as well, so kind of understood the problem. Perhaps MF's policy on unopened strings should extend 2 years or some more reasonable period.

    Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

    Read reviews that these strings had a deeper sound. That was true, I bought 3 sets when on sale. The first 2 sets only lasted one week. Never tried the third set. For someone who plays occasionally these strings would be fine. I play two weekend Gigs with 4 Guitars and a Keyboard and put about 4 hours on my 12 String. Both sets only lasted through one weekend.

        Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite 12-String Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        I've been been playing and changing guitar strings for about 22 years. This is the first time I have ever had a string have such a kink. It would have been over the soundhole had I used it. The package itself has no damage.
