Just the best roundwounds
May 30, 2021
I can't thank the bass player enough that recommended these to me the first time! This are just the best roundwound strings I have every tried. Great warm sound and good articulation, balance and feel.

Many thanks to DR for these great strings.
Smooth feel and very warm, clear sound. Long life as well. What cons?

Same great tone as the long scale

Great on a 2018 Gibson SG bass
November 8, 2019
I went looking for similarly- gauged set to replace the strings that were on a gently used short-scale 2018 Gibson SG Bass I had just bought, and this DR set was a match. The wrap is a little more aggressive in texture than niclkel D’Addario but I like it and it suits the SG’s character. The tone across the set appears as good as I’ve found.
See above comment None that I can see, except: Despite the wide range of string types, DR doesn?t have as wide a range for short scale instruments, so there?s no 40-60-75-95 or anything close.

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.
