Dunlop Electric Bass Guitar Nickel Plated Steel 5-String, .045 - .125, DBN45125Mark NicholsMarch 10, 2010I'd read a nice review of the Dunlops in Bass Player Magazine -- how these nickel-plated strings were bright, but not "tinny." I was hoping they'd be a less-expensive alternative to DR High Beams, which I've used exclusively the last couple of years. So far, after a couple of church gigs, they've proven to be just that -- a nice, bright set with a full-bodied tone. They sound much like the stainless steel DR High Beams I've been using. Now, I'm just hoping they will keep their freshness for as long as the High Beams seem to last. If they do, then the Dunlop's strings' lower price point might make them a very attractive alternative.
