Quality Unbeaten - Great Strings
I got these for my Dean Fretless Acoustic/Electric bass and was very satisfied especially when they were first put on. One thing I always take note of with DR strings is they are INCREDIBLY raw feeling and sounding. I enjoy that raw feel and sound because coated strings may last a bit longer, but coated strings die hard when they finally reach the end of life. These strings have a gradual progress toward becoming limb, which is what I prefer. However, I have kept some DR High Beams on my electric bass for longer than a month and have been very satisfied even after an extended period (I play 8 - 12 hours a day, so therefore they should die very quickly.)

I am very satisfied with the raw feel and sound. The brightness is perfect, as they "cut through" guitars, but manage to "fit in the pocket" with the perfect edge of bright and mellow tone. I highly suggest one may purchase these and try for one's self. Truly great; as all DR strings are!

DR Acoustic Bass RPB 45
Excellent quality, last longer on my Martin B 15 E than others I've tried. Hard to get in most Music stores, so I'll pay the extra $ from Just Strings. Have a few basses which require special strings and you guys have them.

DR acoustic bass strings
Exactly the correct touch for my Guild B50 bass. Great intonation and life.
I try to shop locally when possible, but JustStrings.com cover my needs better than any local shop. I've even requested locally, got a 'ho-hum'' and wound up buying here..... I think I'll stay here (as long as they offer DR strings!!!!)

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."
