Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings wound on Hexagonal Cores. VERITAS™ is a first. A revolutionary new category of acoustic strings. VERITAS strings last up to 4 times as long as ordinary acoustic strings. “I can play 4 or more concerts with one set of VERITAS. I used to play one concert with other strings,” Stefan Grossman. “Love the way they sound,” Happy Traum.

Accurate Core Technology© (ACT©) is at the heart of VERITAS strings. Superior core wire is the foundation for tone, accuracy, and durability. DR’s patented Accurate Core Technology strengthens the core wire and perfects any variations of the core wire. The core wire is far stronger and more accurate along its entire length for highly improved pitch and longer life.

-Lasts up to 4 times longer
-Loud and bright, notes seem to jump off the pick
-Extremely stable, stays in tune surprisingly well
-Robust and resonant tome, excellent sustain

“Should be named Pitch Perfect,” B. Richard

“Amazed these strings last so long and are not coated,” Happy Traum

In 2010, DR introduced Accurate Core Technology in DDT™…that hold tune in, and at, any tuning… Especially noticeable when players drop tune, or alternate tune. Long lasting VERITAS strings have been played by Stefan Grossman for over 3 years. This time tested technology is now at the heart of VERITAS acoustic strings.


Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings wound on Hexagonal Cores. Low tension…the sound is loud and warm.The Rare phosphor bronze acoustic strings are a departure from the standard, good quality bronze string currently available…not necessarily better, but possessing a new, different and stronger “voice”. When DR set out to produce a string with new characteristics, our goal was to redesign contemporary thinking about what phosphor bronze can do for a good acoustic guitar. Hand-carved arch-tops, dreadnaughts and good steel string acoustic guitars made 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 and louder sound, as well as a deeper bottom (who like to hear their guitars ring out) will appreciate the Rare phosphor tone, sound, and feel. According to our heavy-playing bluegrass friend, three time national guitar picking champion Steve Kaufman, Rares last an unusually long time. Steve recommends DR to all his students.


Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings wound on Hexagonal Cores. Normal tension, sweet tone, and bright treble. Our intention in developing Pre-Alloy phosphor bronze strings was to achieve for acoustic players a high quality, long-lasting string that is bright and unusually well-balanced in tone (first) and volume (second). This is an entirely All-American Alloy phosphor bronze strings of great clarity and great durability.


Sunbeam phosphor bronze strings are handwound on round cores which give a terrific result…wonderful sustain…remarkable sustain. The tone does not seem to decay as do other phosphor bronze strings, which we think of as decaying in a curve. The Sunbeam phosphor seems to sustain in a straight line, until the sound “falls off”. The Sunbeam phosphors are also musically bright and rich sounding. Additionally they are very flexible…more so than any other string we have played.

HI-BEAM 80/20™

Hi-Beam 80/20 acoustic are designed for extra brightness, to cut through the ensemble playing of bluegrass musicians, as well as derive extra clarity from heavily braced, or dull sounding guitars. Wrapped upon a hex core the new Hi-Beam 80/20 acoustic are handmade and handwound for great tone, and increased longevity.


Unique Acoustic-Electric
ZEBRA acoustic-electric strings wound on Round Cores. They are designed for acoustic-electric guitars with piezo pick-ups under the bridge…or magnetic pick-ups in the soundhole. Full size archtop jazz guitars also respond to “Zebras” with “Richer tones” according to players. ANY amplified acoustic comes ALIVE when you put on the Zebra strings. Revolutionary because no one has ever done this before. And no one else does it yet. It is the very first string where you can SEE the difference. Every other coil is nickel-plated steel, every other coil RARE phosphor bronze.
