OVERVIEW

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.

Brightness and ease of playing.

          Love the DR strings for my Gibson SG Bass. Right gauge for this bass an always sound good. Have put them on my Fender Jazz Bass too. The sound of these strings are just right. Thanks MFs for getting them to me so fast.

              Love these strings, made my SG Gibson bass sound so much better. DR even makes the right gauge strings for this short scale bass.

              Great Strings

              Comments about DR Strings HI BEAMS Short Scale 4 String Bass Medium (45-105):

              I bought these strings for my short scale bass and these babys sing! They produce a nice full bodied/fat sound. Not muddy at all. Perfect for my style of play. Used with a pick they give a nice percussive effect too. IMHO these are great strings for a great price. I will buy them again.
