All of us here at BassCravers.com came to know more about DR Strings through a mutual friend named Jorgen Moholt who happens to live in the Northern California mountains, near our home town of Redding, CA. Jorgen is a bassist as well and he has built a state of the art studio that rivals any other. His first featured guest was Norm Stockton last October of 2015.
He calls it Tone Mountain (Music & Nature)
This place is for those who really want to get back to nature but don’t want to compromise their sound in order to do it! We anticipate great things happening there in the months and years to come. For that reason, we were more than happy to hear what Jorgen had to say about DR Strings and when he was able to get his hands on a set of the new Pure Blues strings that is now Victor Wooten‘s newest sound, we had no problem reviewing them.
DR Strings pride themselves on being handmade even though at the time that they began production, computer assisted machinery and semi-automatic machinery was a common practice in winding strings.
However, they were convinced that they could hear and feel the difference between hand-made and machine-made strings and so they have committed themselves to making only handmade strings. Players feel the same way as they are the ones who are making the sound and so the company has thrived on this standard ever since. Another major component of this is the fact that DR Strings are also “American made with old fashioned hand craftsmanship, combined with the very finest of American made high quality metals”. So, go check them out and see what they can do for you!
Meanwhile, you can hear for yourself the difference and quality of this string in our latest Video Review. Take a look:
