Bright Lites: DR Hi-Beam light gauge bass strings really shine!
by Bill S. from Salt Lake City, UtahI recently purchased my first set of DR Hi-Beam bass strings in a light gauge (40-100) as an experiment . On a reissue Gibson Ripper II bass (all maple with a rosewood fretboard) I'd been using a famo... read more [+]us brand of English stainless steel strings in a medium gauge. I really liked the sound these strings had. This Ripper II bass was specifically set up to enhance a high-end sound with lots of treble punch, taking full advantage of the maple body and neck. I mostly use DR strings on my six and four string guitars so I thought I would try the Hi-Beams in a light gauge. Very impressive on a number of levels! The sound is bright without being harsh. These strings have a great bottom end with lots of "growl". The high end response is noticeably punchy and out-front. Stainless steel strings have a unique clarity of sound that brings a sharper edge to the sound of a bass or guitar. These Hi-Beams are smooth-playing and very flexible in the light gauge which makes playing effortless and string-bending easy, even on the low E. The British stainless steel strings I had on before made my fingers sore after about an hour of playing, but not with the Hi-Beams. This isn't a straight-across comparison because I went from a medium gauge to a light gauge, but I'll be trying out more Hi-Beams in the future for sure. If you're looking to brighten your bass sound with a great sounding, superb playing string check-out DR Hi-Beams! P.S. As an added bonus, these strings are also supposed to be long-lasting, but I haven't had them on my bass long enough to comment on that. Still...give Hi-Beams a try. You won't be sorry unless you're looking for a more traditional-sounding style of bass string. Bill S. close [-]
