    DR Strings is happy to announce Victor Wooten has chosen DR’s PURE BLUES™ bass strings as his string of choice. In addition to his 5 Grammy wins and two time Bass Player magazine “Bassist of the Year” awards, Victor is also an accomplished author, educator, and founder of Wooten Woods, a unique nature and music retreat nestled outside of Nashville. Victor is generally recognized as “one of the most fearless musicians on the planet.”

    Describing the new partnership, Victor noted, “Music is vibrations and a direct representation of who we are. Strings are vital components to how these vibrations touch the listener. To reach people honestly, we need strings that respond purely. PURE BLUES™ is my choice.”

    DR’s PURE BLUES™ bass strings featuring 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.

    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.

    Quantum-Nickel alloy? Really? Please explain how quantum considerations apply to this particular nickel alloy. How is it different from any other nickel alloy.
