OVERVIEW

Bright but not harsh and easy on your frets.

Gauges .45, .65, .85, .105, .125.

DR Strings 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 result 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. These bass strings don't eat your frets. Hi-Beams are the string to choose for brightness, and ease of playing. DR Hi-Beams fit virtually all bass scale lengths up to 37-3/4".

Great sounding bass strings.

Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

What sounds good to one person may not sound good to another person, but these strings sound good to me and my band mates. I've tried many different bass strings and these are, to me, the best sounding stings.

    I play two to three shows on a cruise boat daily. These strings sound good on various combinations of amps, basses and tone settings. Tone always remained consistently good for a long time.

          These strings are great. First day I had them on they're weren't even that metallic-y like most new strings are, they break right in! But they last long as well. I haven't changed strings and it's been almost a year. They're great for slapping too, I put my Schecter Omen Extreme 5 Bass in my Fender Rumble amp and it sounds fantastic. I definitely recommend DR strings, they've got a great tone.

          Great strings for the price

          By Sir Chuy

          from Indianapolis, Ind.

          Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

          I've used about three sets of these to date and they are great for the price. The sound is bright in the higher end and smooth in the lower. They kept their sound for good while before starting to lose fidelity - a testament to their quality. I will say a con to these are once they start to lose their brightness and response, they go quick, so have an extra set ready if you need keep your sound consistent.

          Makes your bass SING!

          By tdub

          from Elsewhere

          Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

          I have been using DR strings for years. I used to mess around buying cheap to mediocre strings and hoping for good sound and long life but they would lack tone and die quick every time. Not DR's! I put some of these on a Warwick of mine last night and had to write this review. DR's can and have lasted me (if I boil or soak them in denatured alchohol) the better part of a year.Either way you will get months of excellent tone and I have never had one break on me. Hell Yeah DR!

          Best strings for Jazz Bass

          By funkflex

          from Daytona Beach, Florida

          Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

          These Dr strings have the clearest tones that I have ever heard. A while ago I didn't care for steel strings because I always thought that they felt like sandpaper. That's not the case with these high beams. They are very flexible and smooth. I highly recommend these strings for Fender Jazz basses. When you install them make sure that you lower the pickups so that the sound is not too hot. Another plus is that these strings are super long. They are perfect for body through designs and will provide plenty of wrap for the D string (4+1) configuration. If these strings are too expensive for you, then i highly recommend the Fender 8250's with the tapered B and E string! They give an identical sound at almost half the price.

          I have been using DR Hi-Beams for several years and they have never let me down. From clean highs to deep lows these strings are hard to beat at any price.

          Well worth the money

          By Evan Hill

          from Trussville, AL

          Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

          I got these strings a while back (about 1 year ago) thinking something this expensive cannot be bad. Luckily I was right. Right from the git-go these strings sounded amazing. And they've lasted through tons of playing, an average of 3 hours a day! The one thing I do to take care of them is wipe them down when I'm finished playing (which is a good idea for any strings). They still sound great! These are top notch!

          The only strings I use!

          By SpectorPlayer

          from Tupelo, MS

          Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

          Since I've owned my Euro-made Spector bass, I've used these strings exclusively. I love the warmth of the mid-tones, the clear thunder of the lows and the clarity of the highs. Stainless steel adds in the life expectancy of these babys. They cost a little more, but they're worth the extra cash. Try these!
