Sunbeams are the next generation of nickel-plated bass strings as they are wound upon round cores.

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.

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

    Among several other basses I have a 1998 Dano Longhorn my wife bought me new and Ive used over the years. Always been hard to find the right strings for it. Ive used light gauged this and that including flats but have flats on other basses that work better there and wanted this bass to cut through and be louder. Never tried Sunbeams/saw good reviews and a few said would increase VOLUME/ well good that's what I want/ After raising pickups and trying these volume is better but still ( at least on my bass ) not like my Fender P-bass/ but with volume turned up on amp and adding some lows ( actually I just push in the Vintage button on my Rumble 200 ) It sounds on par with my other main players. I like the smooth feel/ the clear clean tone and being a light gauge theyre easy on my Vintage hands. I bought these in long scale and just cut to fit . I like the smooth high end and that theres no harsh overtones and I can hear the notes while I play without a compressor pedal which I don't own or ever use anyway. If I had a gripe Id say should be a little more bottom without having to EQ in but that could just be my bass or set up. Overall these work for me and those times when you hear the tone you like after trying different strings is GOLDEN.

      Smooth and even sounding

      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.
