Great strings, but not my personal faves.
Nadz, 06.08.2015
I'm not what you would call a "Bass Player", I don't know that much about Bass gear etc, but I do regularly use a Squier Jaguar Bass for recording with (I am usually a guitarist or singer rather than Bass).

I was trying to achieve a particular sound for my bass, pronounced mids and a nicely defined top-end. That's the best way I can describe it, Bass players might call it differently, but I was after a kind of Justin Chancellor / Les Claypool direction.

A Bass Player friend of mine recommended I try these Hi Beams and the Ernie Ball Slinky set (blue packaging), and after trying both sets out, I found the EB's much more to my liking.

That's not to say these DR's weren't good, they were great! I put these on the Bass first and the difference from the last, thicker strings was great. I almost settled for these but curiosity got the better of me and I tried the EB's out and they were just that bit more to my liking.

These strings are definitely for anyone who wants a clear, bell-like tone, they reminded me a bit of a Piano, if that makes any sense? But my personal opinion is the Ernie Balls were slightly clearer with a more defined high-end response.

tiukempi ja tanakampi
Jarmo P., 28.07.2014
Vaihdoin basson flatwoundit tähän hi beam titeen. Basso alkoi jälleen soida kunnolla ja soundissa on tiukkaa bodya kuin treenatussa keskivartalossa. Kielet ovat myös kestäneet pitkään hyväkuntoisina. Tämä on nyt vakiosettini bassoon kuin bassoon.Tekee mieli kokeilla kitaraankin jotain DR tite-settiä.

HighClass
Michael278, 22.10.2009
Die DR Strings LR-40 HI BEAM TITE sind hochklassige US-Strings mit einer sehr hohen Haltbarkeitszeit. Sehr erfreulich finde ich, dass sie sehr weich im Anschlag sind. Dies meine ich auch im allgemein druckvollen Sound wiederzuerkennen, der in den Höhen sehr samtig, nie harsch klingt. Im Grunde genau das, was der Hersteller auch in seiner Artikelbeschreibung angibt: "mehr Flexibilität, klarere Ansprache und ein vergrößertes Frequenzspektrum.

Achtung: Beipackzettel beachten. Die Strings sollten vor dem Abknipsen mit dem Saitenschneider zuerst umgebogen werden. Dies, damit das round core nicht beschädigt wird. Bei meinem zweiten Satz habe ich dieses nicht gemacht und prompt die A-Saite beschädigt. War natürlich sehr ärgerlich, weil zu den billigsten Saiten zählen die DR ja nicht gerade.

DR LR-40
JazzPunk, 27.03.2014
DR har snabbt blivit ett märke i branschen att hålla ögonen på. Kvalitén är superb, förmodligen den längsta livslängden på ett set bassträngar jag har varit med om samt ett sound som är unikt!

Det enda som kan anses var negativt är att strängen är 38" lång, dvs alldeles för lång för traditionella Fenderbasar. Drar du strängarna genom stallet, alternativt har en bas som har 35" skala så är dessa strängar ett glasklart alternativ!

Tonen i dessa strängar är närmast perfekt, väldigt lättspelade och tension är jämn. Det är lätt att förstå att kända musiker som Sting, Marcus Miller och IA Eklundh spelar på DR på grund av dess kvalité och livslängd!

Without strings, guitars and basses produce no sound, yet most players know very little about them.
