Derek Trucks’s DR Pure Blues PHR-10/11 Guitar Strings

Derek Trucks uses a custom set of guitar strings, with the following gauges – .011. .014. .017. .026. .036, and .046,

This particular string combination is not available in any of the standard sets, so Derek gets his strings by mixing two different sets from DR Strings, the PHR-10, and the PHR-11. He gets his .017, .026, .036, .046 strings from the PHR-10 set, and the .011. .014. from the PHR-11.
