These strings
September 3, 2018
I play a 1993 Alembic Essence 4 string 34" scale bass most of the time. When I bought it in '02 I used Alembic strings and I loved them. I tried my go to's Rotosound, Fender, etc and none were better for me until I tried these. The sound is as good or better and they are well priced and durable. I can get more different tones just with my right hand techniques ( I NEVER use a pick) dig, pluck, hammer, etc. My amplification is SWR Mo'bass, Workingpro 700, Workingman's 10 and Alembic F1-x with whichever speaker cabs are needed for the jig

DR High Beams have the best tone and even string to string balance out there. I've tried it all in the last 44 years playing bass and even the 2nd best isn't close. JustStrings.com also has the best price hands down!!!

I've been playing bass for 17 years, and have been involved with touring and recording for probably 6 of those years. DR Strings are the most reliable, consistent bass strings out there. They stay clean sounding for a lot longer than some of their competitors. They do not eat your frets, and they are comfortable to play for long periods at a time. At the price on this site, you really can't beat it.

DR Hi-Beam strings

My favourite Bass has always been the Fender Jazz - and these strings really bring out all the sound the instrument has to offer. They play great, last long and are relatively easy on frets compared to other round wounds.

DR Hi-Beams 4 string bass .045-.105

I bought these for a P Bass I'm building. I'm not done building it yet but I put a set of strings just like them on a P Bass I just rebuilt and set up for a friend and I love the DR sound. I have DR's on all my basses. I love your prices! I buy from you when ever I can.

DR hi-beam bass strings

Even strings with comfortable tension. No silk wrapping, which makes boiling and re-use easy. Particularly good on Fender basses!

Stainless Steel Round Wound





"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 results 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. They don't eat your frets. Hi-Beams are the string to choose for brightness, and ease of playing."

DR Strings

"From the first handmade strings DR made for Marcus Miller and Jeff Healey (both of whom have played DR's for over six years), to our latest development, the remarkable ZEBRA electric-acoustic strings, DR HandMade Strings approaches sound and string design differently from other makers… we are all players. The secret to the way we make DR strings is the word "slow." No other company we know makes strings one at a time, so very slowly and carefully. Quality of sound is paramount… along with the highest possible specifications for materials. Longevity and durability are our next concerns. We are NOT a high speed, mass production company. We have an elaborate quality control system.

For a relatively new company, we have been embraced by a surprising number of "Legends and Masters" of guitar and bass. A partial list of DR endorsees includes Sting, Marcus Miller, Jeff Healey, Adam Clayton of U2, Warren Haynes of GOV'T MULE and THE ALLMAN BROTHERS BAND, Jonas Hellborg, Bo Diddley, "Skunk" Baxter, Victor Bailey, Steve Kaufman, Percy Jones, Darryl Jones of THE ROLLING STONES, Rick Derringer, Mick Karnes, Andreas Kisser, Max Cavalera, & Paulo Jr. of SEPULTURA, Birelli Legren, Trey Anastasio and Mick Gordon of PHISH, SMASHING PUMPKINS, Gary Tallent, Tony Franklin, Ty Tabor & Doug Pinnock of KING'S X, Dimebag Darrell of PANTERA, Scott Ian, Paul Crook, & Frank Bello of ANTHRAX, Stefan Lessard with THE DAVE MATTHEWS BAND, Peter Rowan, Shawn Lane, Paul Pesco Matt Freeman with RANCID, Per Gessle of ROXETTE, Sharlee D'Angelo of MERCYFUL FATE, and VERUCA SALT.

DR Strings are made with more metal than one realizes at first. By way of example, before a .042 gauge DR string is carefully wound, core wire and wrap wire that total .043 are prepared. After a process we call "Compression-Winding", a DR string that gauges a .042 is produced.

The ratios and principles of "TITE-FIT" / "Compression-Winding" are used for the specifications and manufacture of all DR strings. At DR we craft our strings at tension. The following is one example of how the DR wrap/ratio formula works… in this case for .042's. Core wire is .016, wrap wire is .0135 x 2 (top and bottom covers). Total material gauges .043 before winding and .042 after winding."
