DR Strings

DR Strings

In 1989, DR Handmade Strings re-introduced hand-made round core string making to the general market. It was an idea born from founder Mark Dronges days at Guild Guitars, which his father, Al Dronge, started in 1952. Mark says that DR was out for a certain sound and feel that was missing from machine made strings, and is captured in each set of DR Handmade Strings. Al Dronge, was the founder of Guild Guitars, and he always wanted to add a string making facility. "We took the lessons I learned at Guildthat there will always be players searching for a better sound, and applied them to DR. It starts with care and quality, and a relentless drive to keep improving. On my wifes side, her grandfather, started Levin guitars in the early 1900s in New York City. It is not very well known that Django Reinhardt played a Levin DeLuxe guitar on his American tour. DR is truly a family company with 4 generations of family working here."
