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."

The best I've found.

By The Wrath

Comments about DR Strings Sunbeams NMR5-45 Medium 5-String Bass Strings .125 Low B:

I've tried just about every brand / type that you can think of, and these are simply the best. Good tone, soft feel, long life. I think the previous reveiwer just likes the bright sound of stainless. The tone of nickle mellows over time no matter what brand you're using.

Very Disappointed

By Bassmanstooge

from Mount Vernon, IL

Comments about DR Strings Sunbeams NMR5-45 Medium 5-String Bass Strings .125 Low B:

I have used all the strings and I like the DR Highbeams and I wanted to try the nickel's with the round core so I bought a set of these to test on one of my Carvin basses and they sounded good and had a good feel but they went completely dead on me after just a couple of weeks and only about 6 or 7 hours of playing time. My bass suddenly sounded terrible and I couldn't get any tone I wanted or usually have. It was nothing with my bass or amp. I changed the strings back to my Ernie Ball's and it was fine. Also, I recently started using Dunlop bass strings and they are amazing. I might have a new favorite. Try 'em!
