Product Reviews for DR Strings Electric Bass Hi-Beam Tite-Fit Stainless Steel Bass .135, HBS-135
DR Strings Electric Bass Hi-Beam Tite-Fit Stainless Steel Bass .135, HBS-135AlanApril 14, 2010For bassists who like thick strings or play in drop a this is what you need to buy. I buy the heavy 4-string hi beams & this string for my 5-string & the strings are great. I would really love it if Dr would just make this into a full pack, that would be helpful. But what I'd really like to see is a .140 guage string come out. The .135 is just a little too thin for what I play & I've seen a flatwound .136 & I've seen .175 but I don't like flatwounds & .175 would destroy my nut, but a .140 would be perfect for me. As I'm sure it would for anyother drop a bassist. But, I only play DR & this is as good as it gets & it is very good. A good bright tone but delivers with the depth. I play a variety of music & this string covers it all, from jazz to death metal.
