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.

Beware Inconsistent Gauges !

I used these strings consistently for several years but eventually gave up on them, due to the fact that the actual gauges of any given pack could not be counted upon for accuracy. They were off often enough that DR sent me multiple packs to replace the flawed ones and did so several times. While I genuinely appreciate their dedication to customer service, I eventually got fed up with how this issue significantly messed with my intonation. I liked the sound and feel a lot but playing in tune is ultimately more important to me than my loyalty to a particular brand.
