Hi-Beam™ stainless steel bass strings are round wound and constructed upon a round core which is unique in the industry. Hi-Beams™ require much more time, care, and extra steps to make than other bass strings. The extra effort DR expends making Hi-Beams™ results in a bass string that is highly flexible, musically bright (not harshly bright) and renowned for durability, unusually long life, consistency, and string-to-string balance. They don't eat your frets. Hi-Beams™ are the string to choose for brightness, and ease of playing.

Gauges: .040; .060; .080; .100

Inconsistent Quality Lately?

3

I've used DR bass strings for years, and recent purchases have started to show me that the quality control is getting inconsistent. Some strings seem DOA, have a dark tarnished look and simply do not deliver. Other sets are fine... not sure what's up. That aside, since these are steel, I usually need to break them in. They are "sticky" at first and not responsive, but get better after some hours. I'll stick with them... for now...

I love these strings!

I have put about 5 different sets of strings on my bass since I started playing in a band again about six months ago. These ones finally landed me with a pack of strings I can buy over and over again. These have a nice clear tone that's bright but still smooth, and being stainless I think they'll last a bit longer than the other strings I've tried.
