Sunbeams custom set
I put a set of these with a .30 C to make a lighter 6-string set; my Ibanez 6-string works best with lighter strings. The overall tone is interesting, but I don't feel that the C and G have kept their tones as well as Hi-Beams, so it's back to Hi-Beams I go.

Love these string!
I've been using them for years. They sound awesome and they have just the right feel. The nickel plating makes them smooth and fast and not grindy or too bright like steel strings. Definitely on the vintage side but still with plenty of snap. They seem to last extremely well too.

Long lasting, great sound!
I love the sound of Sunbeams, and these have lasted me a long time! After 1.5 years, playing every Sunday at church, the tone has not noticeably deteriorated. They're also soft on my fingers.

Sunbeams
I like this gauge as it's very soft which may not agree with other peoples taste. The tone is old school and it works well for a lighter more refined touch. This is not a modern sounding high tension string but it is my favorite for bouncy funk.
