Overview

Gauges .45, .65, .85, .105, .125.

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".

Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

What sounds good to one person may not sound good to another person, but these strings sound good to me and my band mates. I've tried many different bass strings and these are, to me, the best sounding stings.

    Great sound and wonderful warm tone

    By Daniel Vasilik

    from Jackson NJ

    Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

    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.

        These strings are great. First day I had them on they're weren't even that metallic-y like most new strings are, they break right in! But they last long as well. I haven't changed strings and it's been almost a year. They're great for slapping too, I put my Schecter Omen Extreme 5 Bass in my Fender Rumble amp and it sounds fantastic. I definitely recommend DR strings, they've got a great tone.

        search?...almost over.

        Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

        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

        By AguyWhoPlaysBass

        from Everett, WA

        Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

        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.

        Great strings for the price

        By Sir Chuy

        from Indianapolis, Ind.

        Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

        I've used about three sets of these to date and they are great for the price. The sound is bright in the higher end and smooth in the lower. They kept their sound for good while before starting to lose fidelity - a testament to their quality. I will say a con to these are once they start to lose their brightness and response, they go quick, so have an extra set ready if you need keep your sound consistent.

        Makes your bass SING!

        By tdub

        from Utah

        Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

        I have been using DR strings for years. I used to mess around buying cheap to mediocre strings and hoping for good sound and long life but they would lack tone and die quick every time. Not DR's! I put some of these on a Warwick of mine last night and had to write this review. DR's can and have lasted me (if I boil or soak them in denatured alchohol) the better part of a year.Either way you will get months of excellent tone and I have never had one break on me. Hell Yeah DR!

        Best strings for Jazz Bass

        By funkflex

        from Daytona Beach, Florida

        Comments about DR Strings Hi Beams Medium 5-String Bass .125 Low B String:

        These Dr strings have the clearest tones that I have ever heard. A while ago I didn't care for steel strings because I always thought that they felt like sandpaper. That's not the case with these high beams. They are very flexible and smooth. I highly recommend these strings for Fender Jazz basses. When you install them make sure that you lower the pickups so that the sound is not too hot. Another plus is that these strings are super long. They are perfect for body through designs and will provide plenty of wrap for the D string (4+1) configuration. If these strings are too expensive for you, then i highly recommend the Fender 8250's with the tapered B and E string! They give an identical sound at almost half the price.
