For DR Handmade Strings, it’s always been about quality and the belief in an idea. The idea is that a handmade string simply sounds better than its machine wound counterpart. For over 20 years, DR has been making handmade strings that inspire musicians, both professional and amateur, to play better and longer than ever before.
DR Handmade Strings believes in good, old-fashioned American craftsmanship, and their pride shows in the quality of their products. Sting, Adam Clayton of U2, Grace Potter, Coheed & Cambria, Muse, and Vampire Weekend are just a few of the artists who trust DR for the sound of their instrument.
DR produces handmade strings for bass, acoustic and electric guitar. Their bass strings in particular are very well known. They attribute this to the fact that bass strings are crafted from additional metal, making the difference in hand wiring that much more apparent. DR strings are also popular for their colorful NEON strings that look as bright as they sound. Under UV light these strings actually glow, making them a fun way to show off on stage. Just because these strings are made to stand out, it doesn’t mean they’re not also made to stand up to your playing. These coated strings last three to four times as long as uncoated strings, all while sounding just as good as their uncoated counterparts.
DR also offers a number of signature strings to help recreate the sound of your favorite players. From the one-of-a-kind groove of Bootsy Collins to the punishing attack of Dimebag Darrel, the DR signature series strings give you the opportunity to play with the tone of guitar and bass legends. These strings are ideal for fans of a specific genre or artist.
DR Handmade Strings is committed to quality; quality in their methods, quality in their materials, and quality in their product. Whether you’re lighting up the stage with their NEONs, replicated the sound of your heroes on their signature strings, or just rocking out at home, DR Handmade Strings, simply put, last longer, sound better, and look cooler than their counterparts.
