Crafted with Vintage Techniques for Fantastic Blues Tone!

The Pure Blues strings from DR take advantage of old-style construction techniques for the ultimate in blues tone. In fact, DR's Pure Blues strings feature a round core, wrapped with a pure-nickel wrap wire. It's a slow and expensive string-making process, but it's one that results in a fabulous increase in sustain, enhanced vintage tone, and great low-end tone for everything from rhythm to lead. You'll also find that you get a surprising bit of punch from these vintage-styled DR Pure Blues strings.

Great Strings!

These are fantastic strings! I have not found a single weakness since I switched to DR strings. They are extremely well made, last forever and seem to retain their tone throughout the life of the string (meaning that how they feel and how they sound match up, as opposed to a string that feels like it has not gone dead yet, but in fact has lost its tone) . I play the pure nickel strings, and they sound great through my setup, which is a P90 Les Paul and a various vintage tube amps. The sound is well rounded, with a lot of bottom end. They also feel great. They are soft and comfortable to bend, and do not seem to discolor or go dead the way that I remember nickel or nickel plated strings doing 25 years ago. Overall these are a great value. I would estimate that they are lasting at least twice as long as the name-brand that I used to use, and I have now put them on all of my guitars. I recently purchased a set of the bronze DR acoustic strings, and those are great as well.

Try The Nickel

IN blues, there is a moment where the guitar wails out that one single note, and by holding it, seems to say it all. If you want some strings with some "say" in them, try a DR.

Best strings for tone

I've been using DR pure blues for a number of years. They deliver a clean blusey tone, and really last.

DR Pure Blues strings

I switched to these strings 2 years ago -- I use 09's and 10's -- I liked the tone quality -- feel and the added bonus of reliability and longevity -- it will continue to be my first choice
