OVERVIEW

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

      Comments about DR Strings Sunbeams SNMR-45 Medium Short Scale 4 String Bass Strings:

      My bro-in-law is a pro player and prefers DR strings. At his suggestion, I bought a set of these to replace the factory strings on a short-scale Squier Jaguar bass (open-box deal). Love the sound and tension of the Sunbeams on the short-scale neck: clear, piano-like tone and no sloppiness. They sound even better with the DiMarzio replacement pickups (DP126 P+J), Orange Drop tone cap, and Hipshot bridge I installed in the little Jag. All systems are "GO!" with this setup.
