Tired of everyday strings? You need Rare tone.

Gauges 10-14-22-30-38-48. Rare Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar 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.

    DR acoustic strings are simply the BEST strings I have EVER played. First off, their Tite-Fit technology does more than you might think. As explained, it does add more material to the strings than other brands making their life longer. But beyond that, the compression involved in Tite-Fit also gives these strings a great feel. How can you say something of a string's feel you ask? Well, for one, being that DR's compression process actually squeezes the string tightly, this allows the 'ridges' felt on the string to be reduced, making chording and fretting the guitar far easier than with any other brand. Far beyond feel, DR's tone surpasses many strings I've played. Brighter, fuller and more resonant sounding notes have come out of my guitar. Although brands like Elixir and other coated strings have measures to resist corrosion, in my opinion, that extra coating just dampens the string making tone suffer GREATLY. DR has found a way to avoid having to cover the vital parts of the string to allow the FULL tone to come through. I have made the switch and will continue stringing on DR's.

        Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        Okay. I do things a little differently sometimes. I have an Ovation 1778 Elite with a maple neck very similar to an electric neck. So I decided to string it like an electric. I put a set of DR 10's strings on it and replaced the wound third with a plain .018 string. Wow! This is a fun guitar to play! I'm mostly an electric guy but lately I've been playing the Ovation at home almost exclusively. There is a whole new set of lead sounds available to me and the strings sound great for flat pickin'. I'm a DR fan anyway. They are just great strings. I am really suprized at the fulness of these light strings. Try DR, you'll be glad you did.

        I normally change my guitar strings every 4 to 6 weeks. I've been trying different brands in order to save money. I put on a set of DR RPL10's 3 months ago and they are still just like the day I put them on. DR is now my string of choice.

        Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        My guitar is exceptionally warm sounding and I was using Martin Silk & Phosphors. These DR's brought my guitar to life. Bigger sound with added brightness (but not TOO bright). Big, punchy sound. Only been on for a few days so I can't speak to consistancy on longevity yet but the tone is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I have found the perfect strings for my Larrivee L.

              I've been playing guitar for a few years now, and have tried quite a few strings. These DR Rares are by far the best! When I first started to buy them about a year ago, I definitely noticed they were great! It wasn't until recently, however that I noticed they were the best. The other day ago I put some D'addarios on my guitar. In comparison to the DR's they are awful! I can't believe it! My expensive guitar actually sounds as bad as a first act now! I can't wait to get my next pack of DR's so my guitar sounds great again. These are a must have!

              Sound good, bend easy.

              By Scott L

              from Central PA

              Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite Acoustic Guitar Strings:

              I went to the store to get the Earthwood Rock and Blues Ernie Ball acoustic strings, but they didn't have them. Instead, I got these. Overall I am pleased. The low tension makes the bending easy (sometimes almost too easy - you need to watch yourself to avoid unintentional bends). It is easy to adjust your playing after just a little bit of time. I do wish the strings had the slightly larger 42-52 on the A/E (instead of 38-48) for a bit more low end, but I'd have to compare head-to-head to really see the difference. I really like that I can pick up the acoustic more, now that I can play/practice all of the bluesy lead parts with the bends etc. If you want to gove your acoustic more of an electric guitar playability, give these a try. For me, it was a revelation.

              My turn to rave about these strings

              By Mozo

              from East Bay, CA

              Comments about DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite Acoustic Guitar Strings:

              I have a pretty decent Washburn acoustic electric guitar but have struggled to get full tone and warmth from it. I worked on it and did all I could with the neck, nut and bridge to make it more playable. I put on 11's to try to get more depth of tone but after a while I realized that I play much cleaner on 10's so I bought these strings. I am completely happy and amazed at the even tone and warmth that these strings produce. It has turned my pretty decent guitar into a really nice sounding guitar. I can't wait to play it every day. From the first strum after tuning it was clear that these strings make a huge difference in tone, warmth and depth. I will never buy a different set of strings for my acoustics again. I dinged the review on the price a little because I bought them about a week ago for about a dollar less per set, so the cost went up since then. But I would still by them at this price. Great, great, great set of strings! I can play again!
