DR Strings Hi-Beam Stainless Steel Bass Strings are round wound and constructed upon 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 making Hi-Beams result in a bass string that is highly flexible, musically bright (not harshly bright), and renowned for durability, unusually long life, consistency, and string-to string balance. These bass strings don't eat your frets. Hi-Beams are the string to choose for brightness, and ease of playing. DR Hi-Beams fit virtually all bass scale lengths up to 37-3/4".

  • Great sound and wonderful warm tone

    As reviewed by Daniel Vasilik on 11/21/2013

    I've been playing guitar and bass for 35 years and used many different strings. I wanted to try something different and asked the the associate if he had any suggestions. Per his suggestion I picked up a set of these for my 5 string. After installing them I was able to drop the action lower than I had ever been able to before. The sound was from the first note was amazing. Tons of warm tone with such a good natural feel. I ended up getting another set for my 4 string. They are that good! I can't say enough good about there sound. You need to hear for yourself.

  • search?...almost over.

    As reviewed by MD on 4/12/2011

    Been searching for my perfect set of strings for my 5 string warwick. I was playing LaBella super steps liking the feel and resonance of bare core going over the bridge. However the last set of strings I got had a fault in the low B string(yes it was the string) and I remember having a good experience with DR Hi-beams for bass. So I ordered and got them on and the bad buzz of the faulty B went away. So it was a good buy in my book. I'm still searching for my go-to strings for my bass, but I think these are a good relient fallback point.

  • Great Sounding Strings

    As reviewed by AguyWhoPlaysBass on 3/11/2011

    I was hesitant to purchase these strings because of the price, but it was money well spent. The first thing I noticed is how quickly they went into tune and stayed there. They also produce a very warm and clear tone. I was surprised by the clarity of the low B. They have a great feel too! I normally go with ernie ball or d?addario because they are less expensive? I won?t be doing that anymore. These are well worth the extra money.
