Great bright sounding steel strings
I like a very bright sounding bass sound and these deliver brightness without sounding harsh. When I put these on my bass sound just comes alive. If you like a bright sounding bass that cuts through the mix these are great!

I tune them up half a step to C-standard and I don't need to make any neck adjustments since they are very stretchy.

Most people say that steel strings are rough on your fingers but I would not say that about these strings. Comparing these, for instance, to Dunlop nickel strings these are very easy on your fingers.

When it comes to quality they sound very bright and nice for several weeks. Then they lose a bit of their top end but still sound very nice to me. Even after several months of use they still sound great but they don't have that high end brightness that the new ones do.

best match for MM M7
eatabeat, 05.06.2018
I have replaced stock strings on Marcus Miller M7 with these DR. Was thinking about selling the bass and now I'm totally satisfied with the sound from it. With stock strings it was dull, lacked dynamic and clarity. No problems with DR Hi-Beams. Just great strings - bass turned to be alive and will stay with me.

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