DR Strings Announces Pure Blues Electric Bass Strings

Pure Blues bass strings combine a fat, warm punch with an edge especially designed for the modern bassist.

Emerson, NJ (March 6, 2015) -- DR Strings announces Pure Blues electric bass strings, featuring Quantum-Nickel, an innovative and proprietary alloy that combines The Best of Steel with Nickel Feel.

DR’s Quantum-Nickel alloy offers players a smoother feeling bass string with deep low end, enhanced mids, tons of punch and bright, clear highs. Hand wound on round cores, Pure Blues bass strings combine a fat, warm punch with an edge especially designed for the modern bassist. Pure Blues strings provide more output, more power, and more top end clank than traditional nickel wrapped bass strings.

DR’s Pure Blues bass strings are now available in sets for 4-, 5- and 6-string basses. Pure Blues sets are offered in Light (PB-40), Medium Light (PB-45/100), Medium (PB-45) and Heavy (PB-50) gauges for 4 string basses. Medium gauge 5 (PB5-45) and 6 (PB6-30) string packs are also available.

So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
