OVERVIEW

Brightness and ease of playing.

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.

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.

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