OVERVIEW

Stainless steel bass strings on a hex core for bright high end and great depth.

Lo-Rider stainless steel bass strings are roundwound and constructed on a hexagonal core. They provide more depth of tone and are a bit stiffer than Hi-Beams. Bass players who are into slapping, popping, and tapping will love the high end and depth of Lo-Riders. The slight bit of stiffness makes these strings very accurate when playing harmonics. Great consistency and great string-to-string balance are DR hallmarks. Fits scale lengths up to 37-3/4".

Gauges 30-45-65-85-105-130.

      Comments about DR Strings Lo Rider MH6-130 Medium Stainless Steel 6 String Bass Strings .130 Low B:

      I set the strings up on an Ibanez SR506 and I immediately noticed they had not tone, no brightness, nothing. got a set of D'addarios to replace these and immediately brought my bass to life. I don't know if the Arizona heat could have affected the quality. I have gotten DR strings plent of times in the past and they are awesome, this is the only time I've received a bad product from them.

      Comments about DR Strings Lo Rider MH6-130 Medium Stainless Steel 6 String Bass Strings .130 Low B:

      I purchased a six string Ibanez BTB bass not long ago. I replaced the Elixer strings they came with because I am not fond of coated strings. I put a set of Labellas that I am used to on the bass, but they were noticablly soft. I've tried Lo Riders before, and liked them on other basses. I thought the stiffness might help with the 17MM string spacing, to get a better feel for the narrower spacing and extra C string.It did help with that quite a bit. The stiffness helps me feel more certain about which string is under my fingers, as I am still getting used to playing a six string bass. Keep in mind that a stiffer string can be set up closer to the fret board without becoming too clanky, or buzzy. So stiffer strings feel different, but aren't any harder to play if they "ride lower".I REALLY like the tone better too, nice and rich harmonically, and very articulate. I definitely would recommend giving them a try.
