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?


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.
