Overview

Gauges 10-13-17-26-36-46.
Pure Blues electric guitar strings from DR Strings are designed with pure nickel wrap wire, roundwound upon round cores. While this is a slow, expensive method of string making, it does produce a guitar string acclaimed for increased sustain, vintage tone, and great low tones for playing music from rhythm to lead. The extra step of winding pure nickel around a round core give Pure Blues strings a punch that players say they are surprised to get in a vintage electric guitar string. Sounds great on any guitar!

These are simply the best sounding, best playing strings for a strat. I am very tone/feel conscious of which string is best for every guitar and this is the best match for a strat I've ever used. Been playing 30+ years pro. These are smooth, rich, great harmonic, touch sensitive, excellent sustain and "hang" strings And ... EB's are really the junk food of guitar strings - good for the masses and competetively priced - you can get full, but without great taste.

The local Guitar Center in Arizona had these strings for a very attractive price so I took the plunge. I used these strings years ago and experienced string breakage and intonation problems. I have been playing guitar for 46 years and have tried every string there is. These were the worst strings I have ever used. I could not get the A string to stay in tune no matter what. Sorry DR, I will NEVER buy your strings again.

      Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

      I purchased these while at a local GC shop. They recommended these in a 3 pack for a great price, so of course I purchased them. At first, I was skeptical about using these strings, because I had never heard of the brand before and I was used to playing extra light strings. The strings came in easy packaging, and I had no trouble putting them on. From the first note I played, I could tell an obvious difference. The tone is really bright and warm, unlike the strings I had previously which were very mellow. The strings work very well with blues and cleans, whether leads or chords. I mostly play hard rock and metal, which these weren't ideal for, they seemed a little too bright for my taste. However, on clean they sound amazing. These strings are easy to use and will make your tone far better

        Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        I'm a believer. I've been trying different strings on a new Agile 3100MC (nice Les Paul clone with Alnico Vs) and wanted to give pure nickel rounds a trial run given the positive reviews. I'm sold. I followed the instructions exactly and didn't even stretch the strings. They settled in faster than anything else I've tried. I was up and in tune pretty much from the get-go with minor intonation adjustments for the wound strings after removing the heavier D'Addario EXL115 strings. I'll probably try the heavier gauge DRs next, but these are already deep and rich with a silky, singing quality to the highs, super easy to bend, too. They also feel great to my fingertips given my touchy body chemistry. They take gobs of gain and roll off the edgy treble overtones, altogether a very composed, resonant string that can be pushed in beautiful ways. They're like the analog tube version of strings.

        pure blues strings

        Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        these are good sounding strings that stay in tune and last forever it takes two to three days to break them in thouh a bit pricey but it's worth it they're SUPER strong thouh I did a strength test and stretched the all of the strings to about five octives above where they're supposed to be not one broke and i'm still jammin' on the same set and they still sound great once I tuned them of course.

        As advertised, nice strings. . .

        By 

        from Paradise, CA

        Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        I tried a set of these on my Schecter TSH-1 semi-hollow body guitar that I tune down a half step. I wanted a nice, clean blues/blues rock tone, and that's exactly what I got. They stay in tune, feel comfortable and bend easily - although you might want to use 9's with standard tuning on a Strat. Bottom line: no issues, no surprises and a good price for a quality string. String preference is a matter of personal taste, but I highly recommend trying out a set of these if you play blues, blues rock or maybe even just rock.

        Good for blues and jazz

        By 

        from San Jose, CA

        Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        I have two stratocasters: one is for rock and the other is for jazz and blues. The first one has tremolo bridge enabled and Daddario EXL110. The second one has tremolo bridge disabled and this DR Pure Blues Nickel Medium. The difference between these strings is just sound to me. The feelings are pretty close. Both are flexible enough and easy to hold and play. The pure nickel sound matches jazz and blues. The reason why I don't use Daddario pure nickel strings is that those have slight different gauges from EXL110, while the gauge of this DR Pure Blues Nickel Medium is identical to that of EXL110. I am satisfied with this DR Pure Blues Medium.

        Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        These strings are the perfect fit for all of my neck thru style guitars. they especially sound great on the Les Paul. I like to break them in for a couple of days . They seem to sound better after 2 to 3 days. And, they hold up for a long time. By far the best strings I have ever used.

        Great product even for newbies!

        Comments about DR Strings PHR10 Pure Blues Nickel Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        I am still quite new to the whole world of guitar playing. I have an old fender strat that I am learing to play the blues with. I broke a string a few days back and replaced all of them with the DR pure blues 10 gauge. I must tell you the difference in tone is amazing. My instructor (a collector and teacher) loved them. He was going to go pick some up after he tried my guitar. They are real easy to play. Even for newbie players. I love them I have found my favorites.
