Nickel plated bass strings wound on round cores that are perfect for traditional as well as fretless players.

Sunbeams are roundwound nickel-plated bass strings with round-core constructon. These bass strings are perfect for traditional as well as fretless players wanting more brightness and warmth. Sunbeams feature the easily recognizable feel and flexibility of DR round-core construction with nickel warmth, softness of feel, and increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel-plated wrap wire.

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

  • Best Nickel round core string out there.

    As reviewed by Buster Makinson on 3/2/2009

    If you are used to popping and slapping stainless steel strings then you will hate these strings. But if you are a traditional finger-style player you will love these strings. Long lasting. Super finish. balanced frequency response.

  • just ok

    As reviewed by bryanonbass on 10/11/2006

    Im a big fan of DR strings. I have been a user for years and years. I much prefer the Low Riders or Hi Beams than these. These just don't have the DR oomph that the other sets do. Not sure what it is exactly, since Im no string expert. They are way more bright and brittle sounding than I would have thought for a nickel string. Strings are a funny thing. Some people will love certain brands, while others won't. I highly recommend DR strings for their fullness and clarity. I prefer a little more bottom and less high end in my string, and if you are the same, I would recommend the DR LowRiders.

  • Great Strings!

    As reviewed by Lovelitemusic on 5/3/2010

    I recently switched from using stainless steel strings to nickel. I like the warmer tone that nickel strings tend to give you as opposed to the brighter sound of stainless steel. I play an American Precision Bass and love DR's Sunbeams on it. Very warm and almost soft tone when playing with your fingers, and with a pick you can still get the brightness. It's just not overwhelming. If you're into slapping these strings are definitely not for you. But If you like a more vintage warm tone, I highly recommend them. Like I said, they sound great on a Precision Bass. I love these strings! I just wish I could get them in store. Oh well, online only for now.
