DR Long Necks are just what the contemporary player ordered.

Gauges 45-65-85-105-125.

Bass players who need a tapered core string for modern techniques will love the superior performance of DR Long Necks stainless steel strings. Players searching for increased stability in the lower registers will find great clarity and definition with DR's tapered bass strings. DR taper-cores use a single wrap around a hex core as the narrow winding passes over the bridge.

    As reviewed by Jake on 9/18/2009

    I can't say enough good about these strings! The "taper core" design really helps bring out a cleaner fundamental. I tune down my 5 strings to either G#-D#-G#-C#-F#, or G#-C#-G#-C#-F# and they produce a much tighter note with less of the ugly overtones you can get when tuning down a conventional string (a 35" scale and a string-thru body bridge helps a lot also). They have a nice bright articulate sound, and have a slight growl to them which I love. They are also a little smoother to the touch than a lot of other stainless steel strings, really that goes for all DR strings though. DR makes one hell of a string! So all in all, if you use lower tunings, or are just wanting a tighter more articulate fundamental, I'd definitely recommend checking these strings out!
