CMI Music & Audio is now the exclusive distributor of DR Strings' product portfolio in Australia.

We are excited to be representing this world-renowned brand and look forward to increasing product availability, brand tools, and services throughout Australia.

In 1989, DR Strings re-introduced hand-made round core string making to the general market. It requires a lot of skill, time and care, but it’s been worth it because you can hear the difference between a handmade string and a machine-made string.

When you put DR strings on a guitar, you’re not only looking for the response of a fresh string, you’re looking to hear something extra that you didn’t hear before, and that’s DR's goal…to give you more. DR was born from guitars. Al Dronge, the founder of Guild Guitars, always wanted to add a string-making facility. Mark Dronge took the lessons he learned from his father and applied them to DR.

“DR is excited to work with CMI to make our strings more accessible than ever to players in Australia. The timing is perfect with the launch of our brand new, premium, Dragon Skin+ strings! We appreciate the foundation built by past distributors and look forward to a bright future with the CMI team. Their sales and marketing people are world-class and we know they have the structure and processes to take DR's presence to the next level in Australia."

Dave Avenius Vice President of DR Strings

“ We are thrilled to announce our new partnership with DR Strings, a renowned name in the music industry known for their superior quality and innovative design. This collaboration marks a significant milestone for CMI as we expand our product offering into the highest level of instrument strings.” 

Steve Lane, Brand Manager of CMI
