Great sound, great life!
BassMonster, 22.11.2015
Having gone through a variety of strings I tried these on recommendation and was greatly impressed. As a pick player who plays the bass like it owes me money, my strings get a serious workout and many other brands simply aren't up to the hammering that I give them.

DR Hi Beams have outlasted all the other brands I've tried and provide the best bang for my buck. The sound gives me the right amount of brightness and, most importantly, they keep the tone longer. When I first fitted a set of these, the rest of the band commented on the richness of my bass tone and asked what I'd done! All I did was switch from Roto 66 to the Hi Beams.

The current set on my Thunderbird have been on for over six months and they're still full of life. Saying that, I do make a point of using Fast Fret and giving them a good clean after every gig and rehearsal. Saying that, they well outlast Roto 66 or EB Slinkies which I'd used before.

In summary, they may cost a little more than some other strings but they keep their tonelonger. If you're a serious string thrasher like me, these are definitely worth a try.

These strings are the best
Cormac, 22.06.2014
I am a huge fan of complex tone, a la Chris Squire, Pete Townshend, Les Claypool, etc.

For the gauge of the string, they are actually MORE flexible under the fingers than thinner strings by other brands (like the Ernie Ball misnomer "super slinky" ), and they have punchy highs and midrange over tones that give you that piano-string-like clarity to cut through the wash of distorted guitars, crashing cymbals and pretty much anything else, and give your bass tone independence and clarity in the mix.

The strings have such high output, I find with my set up, when I really dig in, I can even get soft clipping distortion like Chris Squire gets running his split signal through a guitar amp.

When I was in my teens, I tried out a bunch of other brands, like GHS bass boomers, and Dean Markley Blue Steels. Nothing compares to DR's quality, sound, complexity of tone, amplitude, and the length of life.

My last set I put on while recording an album with my band this past summer. More than 6 months later, after heavy use rehearsing and gigging, they still sound better "dead" than Ernie Ball strings sound when brand new.

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