OVERVIEW

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.

Tired of everyday strings? You need Rare tone.

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.

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

      In over 50 years of playnig I have never found a better string than DR. I have always used the medium gauge however due to some arthritis developing in my left index finger I have switched to light gauge to see if it can help. I have never been careful about changing strings and the DR strings last a long time. I change strings once or twice a year. I play a lot and a year is too long. I would not recomment anyone wait that long as the strings, any strings, will get to sounding dull. I use acoustic strings but have a fishman pickup installed in my guitar. I have only played one gig since putting on the light gauge strings and playing thump style the bottom end seems to suffer a little so I have to come up with some adjustments like pidking harder with my thump pick. I haven,t used any other strings than DR for the past 20 years. They are definately the best.

          What is not to love about these strings, they are bright, give you a rich tone and seem to last longer that some of the more generic brands I occasionally buy from.

          DR Strings Rare Phosphor Bronze Lite Acoustic Guitar Strings good strings. I think they will be a hit when people discover them. A Luther turned me own to them after doing a set up on my 1980 custom deluxe ovation. The strings resonate better than my D'Addario strings. Santa bough me a DRS1 for Christmas which has Martin SP 7100 Phosphor Bronze Lifespan Coated Acoustic Strings Light, and I will replace them after I play them for a while.

              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!
