OVERVIEW

Bright and easy to play.

Gauges 40-60-80-100-120.

Hi-Beam Stainless Steel Bass Strings are roundwound and constructed on a round core, which is unique in the industry. Hi-Beams require much more time, care, and extra steps to make than other bass strings. The extra effort DR expends results in a bass string that is highly flexible and musically bright without harshness. Hi-Beams are renowned for unusually long life, consistency, and string-to-string balance. They don't eat your frets. Choose them for brightness and ease of playing. They fit virtually all scale lengths up to 37-3/4".

      Comments about DR Strings Hi-Beams Light 5-String Bass Strings:

      Like my basses, I've been playing them for so long that I feel that there must be something better out there. Everytime I try something else I come running back. And so it is with DR, as a former Rotosound player the DR strings were similar without eating up frets. With DR being much more consistent in tone and tuning. I put them on, tune up and go. No bending, and stretching to get ready to play. I started out with heavier gauge but I found the lighter to be more playable without giving up low end tone.

        Comments about DR Strings Hi-Beams Light 5-String Bass Strings:

        Been using DR's for awhile now and must say
        that for me these are simply the best.
        Durable, consistent tone that lasts and lasts
        and don't eat my frets as advertised.
        I won't use any other brand for my basses.
