DR Strings Bass - Sunbeam? Tite-Fit Nickel Short Scale, .045 - .105, SNMR-45
April 4, 2011
These strings were recommended by J. Clark at your organization who was also was very helpful by sending contact information for both DR Strings and D'Addario strings to assist me in making a comparison. Great customer service as usual! I followed his recommendation to purchase the DR strings and am very glad I did. These strings are of excellent quality, sound fantastic, and are perfect for my 31" scale Marleaux bass. The sound and playability are just what I was looking for. I highly recommend these strings to short scale bassists who want great tone.

DR shortscale sunbeams
January 31, 2010
I have used Highbeams for years but they didn't work as well on my new shortscale SX. Juststrings is the only place I can find short scale Dr's too. The Sunbeams had more tension and sounded great. Not quite as sparkly but they still have enough hi mid presence to cut through. They don't last quite as long as highbeams, but they don't take so long to break in, and they still last longer than any other nickel string. My biggest complaint is that there is only one size for shortscales.
