Lo-Rider stainless steel bass strings from DR are roundwound and constructed on a hexagonal core. Lo-Riders provide more depth of tone and are a bit stiffer than their Hi-Beam strings. Bass players who are into slapping, popping, and tapping will love the high end and depth of Lo-Riders. The slight bit of stiffness makes these strings very accurate when playing harmonics. Great consistency and great string-to-string balance are DR hallmarks. Fits scale lengths up to 37-3/4".
The Lo-Rider MH-45 Medium strings feature gauges 45-65-85-105.

Replaced my usual Rotosounds on my JB 24 with these, and I'm very happy. The tone has more bottom end without sacrificing the highs; more of a piano sound, which I like. The increased tension got rid of a problem with "clanking" that I was having; because of the increased tension, I did have to adjust the truss rod a little, though no big deal. They also had length adequate for my string-through body and 34" scale neck. Overall, very pleased- I will continue using these strings!
well, i put these strings on as an experiment to try some different strings then my usual fat beams. I adjusted the action and played, but the strings are so stiff. It feels like playing a cold instrument in the early morning- not so good. Although my harmonics ringed out well on the strings but thats just about the only good thing about the strings-but maybe you prefer stiff strings,but i dont.
These were given to me by recommendation and I am quite content. The life of these strings are great, I replace them every 5-7 months and even then, they hold their tune and sharp tone. These give great definition especially on high notes. Compared to other strings (including other DRs) Lo-Riders are the best balance of quality and price. The tone isn't the greatest for music with more gain such as metal.
