Anyone try DR's Acoustic Guitar Strings ( having a problem )
Big fan of Rare Phosphor bronze here. Here's the deal with DR. Thee are handwound roundcore strings. Because the core wire is round and not hexagonal the wrap does not grip as tightly. When you put them on you must either wind the string prior to cutting the excess length OR you can crimp the string 90 degrees and then trim it prior to winding. If you don't do this the wrap wire may loosen causing buzzing and other issues. I'd say this process holds the same fir any round core string like Dean Markley or Pyramid. DR is very good about taking you at your word and sending replacement sets. The Rare phosphor bronze are fantastic BTW. Balanced right out of the gate. No break in period and last a long time.
