DR Strings RARE phosphor bronze acoustic strings are a departure from standard, good quality bronze strings currently available... not necessarily better, but possessing a new, different, and stronger "voice". When DR set out to produce a string with new characteristics, their goal was to redesign contemporary thinking about what phosphor bronze can do for a good acoustic guitar.
Low tension... the sound is Loud and Warm
Hand-carved arch-tops and dreadnaughts and good steel string acoustic guitars of rosewood, maple, and mahogany seem to benefit from a distinct improvement in tone, depth, and sustain with RARE phosphor strings. Players who want a fatter, louder sound, a deeper bottom... (who like to hear their guitars ring out..) will appreciate the RARE phosphor tone, sound, and feel.
According to heavy bluegrass-playing , three-time national guitar picking champion Steve Kaufman, friend of the DR family, RARES last an unusually long time. Steve recommends DR to all his students.
