DR strings are made with more metal than one realizes at first. DR's RARE Phosphor Bronze acoustic guitar strings have a Hex Core which gives the guitar strings low tension and a loud, warm sound. 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, their goal was to redesign contemporary thinking about what phosphor bronze can do for a good acoustic guitar, Hand-carved arch-tops, and dreadnoughts. Good steel string acoustic guitars 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, louder sound, a deeper bottom... (who like to hear their guitars ring out..) will appreciate the RARE phosphor tone, sound, and feel. According to DR's 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.
