Overview

Gauges 12, 16, 24, 32, 42, 54.

Light 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. Hand-carved archtops, dreadnoughts, and good steel string acoustic guitars of rosewood, maple, and mahogany benefit from a distinct improvement in tone, depth, and sustain with a fatter, louder sound and a deeper bottom.

Great Strings

By BW

from West Linn, OR

Comments about DR Strings RPM-12 Light RARE Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I finally got around to changing the strings on my acoustic last week. I went to Guitar Center and picked up a pack of these, because I use DR electric strings. I put them on and they sound great. They stayed in tune easily. They are deffinelty worth a try.

Acoustified...

Comments about DR Strings RPM-12 Light RARE Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I had to buy the DR acoustic strings when I saw them! I have used DR strings ever since I started playing guitar, and they are really tough and live up to their name. I tried other brands of acoustic strings, but they only lasted me about a week. The DR's last so much longer. They last me at least two months when I play every day. Great Strings!

Glorious

By Connor M.

from Gas City IN

Comments about DR Strings RPM-12 Light RARE Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

i used a lot of other strings before these. Fender, Dadario, martin, etc. and those were all great phosphor bromze strings, however the first time i put these on my acoustic was a very memorable moment. it had that gorgeous phosphor bronze tone like all the others, but these strings sounded thicker, fuller, and richer than anything i had ever used before. my acoustic is all mahogany with maple top and a rosewood fretboard, and these strings pulled that warm rich beautifus tone out of it that no other string had done before. these are the best strings i've ever played on in all 5 years of playing and experimenting.

Great strings!

By Derrick T

from Morehead, Kentucky

Comments about DR Strings RPM-12 Light RARE Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I have tried a lot of different strings on my Epiphone AJ200scena and i decided to give dr strings a try, man was i suprised these strings brought out my guitars true tone, the tone ive been striving after. I like the martin guitar sound and play bluegrass and gospel style music, these strings give me that bassy and balanced treble sound i was looking for. Good job dr.

Comments about DR Strings RPM-12 Light RARE Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

I put these on my Greg Bennett OM3. It's an all sapele, all laminate box. They sweetened the sound of the tinny trebles. Slide very smooth but still squeak of course. Feel great on the fingers. They are the loudest strings I've ever had. They settled in and held their tuning within minutes. The cheap guitar is always in tune. Never had strings perform like this. I play 90 minutes every night and the strings sound fresh after a month or more. They're showing no sign of corrosion or wear. However, I don't like the overall tone they give to this particular guitar. I used them to replace the cheapest Martin P.B. which are not my favorite strings, and the Martins sounded better. After much experimenting, D'Addario PB lights are the best string for my OM3. I'm going to try the Rare Bluegrass version on my Yamaha FG730S, and will review those in the future. These DR Rare strings have a lot going for them, and are relatively inexpensive. Try them and see how they sound on your guitar.

A Little Disappointed

    • Defective B String

      Comments about DR Strings RPM-12 Light RARE Phosphor Bronze Acoustic Guitar Strings:

      I bought these strings for a Guild M-120 that I have. I heard they might sound good with Mahogany body guitars. These strings were a disappointment from the get-go. The B string was defective and had obvious nicks right where you strum and also about 4" higher. I took the guitar back to Guitar Center to show the strings to the sales person. They were nice enough to give me an extra single Ernie Ball B string for when the defective string breaks which I would expect to be any day now.The strings also sound a little "tinny" to me. I think I'll go back to the Earthwood strings which I'm sorry I took off the guitar to try these out.
