Nickel plated bass strings wound on round cores that are perfect for traditional as well as fretless players.

Sunbeams are roundwound nickel-plated bass strings with round-core constructon. These bass strings are perfect for traditional as well as fretless players wanting more brightness and warmth. Sunbeams feature the easily recognizable feel and flexibility of DR round-core construction with nickel warmth, softness of feel, and increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel-plated wrap wire.

Sunbeams are another step forward on continuing a path for players who continually seek to upgrade their skills and tools to achieve great musical satisfaction. Sunbeams are the next generation of nickel-plated bass strings as they are wound upon round cores. Sunbeams are a step forward for the traditional player, as the advanced exponent of fretless bass, both of whom want brightness and warmth. Sunbeams feature the easily recognizable feel and flexibility of DR round core Construction, with nickel warmth, softness of feel, and increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel-plated wrap wire.

Tony Franklin says "Sunbeams amaze me. I love them on my fretless."

    Smooth and even sounding

    By Frankie Fender-ztt4m

    from Massachusetts

    Comments about DR Strings Sunbeams NLR-40 Light 4-String Bass Strings:

    I have been using these for years. I don't know why they are so hard to find in stores, they are great strings. Especially suited for Motown, Funk and Blues. They have a smooth tone without being overly bright. Very nice for a vintage sound if you want something with more brightness than flats.
