Fatter, deeper, and smoother stainless steel bass strings wound on round cores.

Marcus Miller signature Fat Beams were designed for Marcus' exacting standards. Marcus Miller is a pioneer in electric bass who has worked with Miles Davis, served as a producer for "Night Music," developed an extensive resume as a producer in L.A., and has played on more than 200 records.

Marcus Miller worked with DR to develop a new and improved version of one of the best stainless round wound bass strings on the market. The effort took over a year, and the result is a “fatter, deeper, smoother” string that satisfied Marcus Miller’s demanding standard. Fatter tone. Deeper sound, smoother feel and response are the qualities that separate Marcus Miller “Fat-Beams” from all other ordinary bass strings. New “Fat-Beams” are also more consistent in feel along the length of the string, as well as string to string.

Gauges 40-60-80-100-120.

Comments about DR Strings Marcus Miller MM5-40 Fat Beams Lite 5-String Bass Strings .120 Low B:

I Love these strings and have always loved DR strings. I thought I d try a lighter guage and go with a .120 B string. WRONG CHOICE ! It rattles so bad I had to put a bit of paper between the nut and string to make the rattle go away. My nut is fairly new (as is the bass) so I'm guessing poor quality on the string. I ve heard its hard to make a good B string for bass. Starting to believe it. However I think I ll go back to my .45-130 set. They were fine. I was just wanting a little more dexterity.
