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.
VERITAS™, we believe is a completely new category of long lasting acoustic strings that last up to 4X longer than ordinary acoustic strings, according to Stefan Grossman, a renowned concert artist, educator, and owner of The Guitar Workshop Catalog. Accurate Core Technology™ (ACT™) is at the heart of VERITAS™ strings. Superior core wire is recognized as the foundation for rich tone, accuracy of intonation, and durability. Accurate Core Technology™ was developed to reinforce the core wire and fill in imperfections along the entire length of the core wire. In our opinion, this results in strings with improved pitch retention, and stability.
“DRAGON SKIN™ Acoustic Guitar Strings feature DR’s clear coating on a phosphor bronze wrap wire to prevent dirt and perspiration from reaching the hexagonal core wire, preventing corrosion. The coating, which is applied to all strings in the set, is ultra-hard and doesn’t dampen vibration like softer coatings do. The strings have more projection, fewer unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation than uncoated strings.”
• K3™ Coated applied to the wrap wire is extra hard to maintain string brightness while extending life
• The coating eliminates unwanted overtones, helping projection, clarity and articulation
• A Phospor Bronze Wrap Wire on a hexagonal core delivers exceptional brightness and flexibility
