Comments about DR Strings Long Necks Taper Core Medium 5-String Bass Strings:
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!
