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".

  • Great strings, but...

    As reviewed by SR5 on 5/30/2007

    I gotta admit, these strings are great. VERY bright, and they last longer than any string I've ever owned. However, they're actually just too bright for my taste and aren't as comfortable to play on as flat wound strings. Because they're so bright, they produce a lot more noise than other strings I've used. Overall, great product, but just not what I prefer.

    I had heard a lot of good things about DR, so i desided to try these, and as soon as i started playing them, i knew i would be useing this brand for a long time to come. These strings are PERFECT for slapin & popin. if you want to get a nice funky Marcus Miller/Victor Wooten sound, these are the strings for you!!!!

  • Very good for slap

    As reviewed by Dan on 1/22/2011

    I've used DR Long Necks for about 3 years, and decided to give the Hi Beams a try. I did like the bright tone, however I noticed that my fingers felt like they were getting caught on the string, which was discomforting. I also noticed that they are somewhat noisy. Just adjusting your fretting hand will result in a lot of noise. If you're more of a slap & pop kind of player, these strings are fantastic - maybe one of the best. I do a lot of both styles, and will probably try Nickel Lo Riders then Hi Beams again.
