DR Strings Introduces Veritas Series

Veritas strings will be offered in both standard and hybrid gauges.

Emerson, NJ (October 21, 2016) -- DR Strings has started shipping new Veritas electric guitar strings to the global MI market. Veritas electric sets feature multiple new elements in guitar string construction for outstanding performance, unparalleled tone and added bonus value for the modern guitarist.

DR Strings believes Veritas is a completely innovative category of electric guitar strings, with players noting Veritas electrics with Accurate Core Technology (ACT) and Quantum-Nickel wrap wire last longer and have more power than ordinary nickel plated strings.p>

DR’s ACT is at the heart of Veritas strings. ACT was designed to reinforce the core wire and fill in imperfections along its entire length. Superior core wire is recognized as the foundation for rich tone, accuracy of intonation and durability. Quantum-Nickel, DR’s innovative wrap wire alloy, is more magnetic, and therefore more responsive and powerful than ordinary NPS 8% nickel plated wire. An added bonus is the inclusion of three free extra Xenon power-plain strings to complement the higher output of the Veritas wounds.

Veritas electric sets will be initially offered in standard 9-42, 10-46 and 11-50 gauged sets as well as two hybrid 9-46 and 10-52 gauged sets.

Well, the Nashville-based session star, producer, and frontman has played on hundreds of albums and 45 No. 1 country hits, starting with Jason Aldean’s “Hicktown,” since 2005. Plus, he’s found time for several bands of his own as well as the first studio album under his own name, All the Birds Sing, which drops January 28.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
