DR Strings Announces Veritas Strings

A new type of Phosphor Bronze acoustic guitar strings with longer life and no surface coating or treatment.

Emerson, New Jersey (February 16, 2016) -- DR Strings is pleased to announce Veritas, a revolutionary and patented new type of Phosphor Bronze acoustic guitar string, with longer life and no surface coating or treatment.

Accurate Core Technology (ACT) is at the heart of Veritas strings. DR's patented Accurate Core Technology strengthens and perfects any variations of the core wire.  The core wire is far stronger and more accurate along its entire length for highly improved pitch stability and longer life.

Beta testing feedback was particularly positive, with players noting Veritas strings’ robust and resonant tone, excellent sustain and extreme stability in alternate tuning applications, all at an affordable price point. Veritas are available in standard Extra Light, Custom Light, Light and Medium gauged sets.

"I can play 4 or more concerts with one set of Veritas.  I used to play one concert with other strings," notes Stefan Grossman. "Love the way they sound," adds Happy Traum.

Based in Emerson, New Jersey, DR Strings maintains the highest quality standards and construction methods. On the forefront of new wire and coating technologies, DR Strings offers an extensive selection of guitar and bass strings for electric, acoustic, and other folk instruments. DR Strings are proudly Made in the USA with All-American materials for over 25 years.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

The archtop guitar is one of the greatest loves of my life, and over time it’s become clear that our tale is perhaps an unlikely one. I showed up late to the archtop party, and it took a while to realize our pairing was atypical. I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
