DR Sunbeams Nickel 45-105
Our Price: $25.00
Lo-Rider Nickel bass strings are round wound and constructed upon a hexagonal core. They provide more depth of tone, and are a bit stiffer than Hi-Beams. Bass players who are into slapping, popping, and tapping will love the high end and depth of Lo-Riders. The slight bit of stiffness makes Lo-Rider bass strings very accurate when playing harmonics. Great consistency, and great string-to-string balance are DR hallmarks. Fits scale lengths up to 37 3/4". 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 H-Beams fit virtually all scale lengths up to 37 3/4". Sunbeams are roundwound nickel-plated bass strings with round-core constructon. These bass strings are perfect for traditional as well as fretless players wanting more brightness and warmth. Sunbeams feature the easily recognizable feel and flexibility of DR round-core construction with nickel warmth, softness of feel, and increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel-plated wrap wire.

Sunbeams are another step forward on continuing a path for players who continually seek to upgrade their skills and tools to achieve great musical satisfaction. Sunbeams are the next generation of nickel-plated bass strings as they are wound upon round cores. Sunbeams are a step forward for the traditional player, as the advanced exponent of fretless bass, both of whom want brightness and warmth. Sunbeams feature the easily recognizable feel and flexibility of DR round core Construction, with nickel warmth, softness of feel, and increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel-plated wrap wire.

Tony Franklin says "Sunbeams amaze me. I love them on my fretless."
DR Bootzillas! 45-105
Our Price: $29.00
Marcus Miller signature Fat Beams were designed for Marcus' exacting standards. Marcus Miller is a pioneer in electric bass who has worked with Miles Davis, served as a producer for "Night Music," developed an extensive resume as a producer in L.A., and has played on more than 200 records.

Marcus Miller worked with DR to develop a new and improved version of one of the best stainless round wound bass strings on the market. The effort took over a year, and the result is a “fatter, deeper, smoother” string that satisfied Marcus Miller’s demanding standard. Fatter tone. Deeper sound, smoother feel and response are the qualities that separate Marcus Miller “Fat-Beams” from all other ordinary bass strings. New “Fat-Beams” are also more consistent in feel along the length of the string, as well as string to string.

DR Strings Dragon Skin strings have a proprietary patent pending coating from K3 Technology Coating that makes them the first coated strings that “sound as good or better than uncoated strings.”

DR's K3 Technology Coating is the first coating that makes no apologies and no excuses for not delivering sound equal to uncoated strings. Players say that these strings have more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation than standard, uncoated strings. Yet, they provide the same protection from corrosion and perspiration as well as increased tone life that coated strings are known for.
