Lovely Set of Strings for Bass

If you love low ends and play on drop tunings these are the perfect set of strings that your bass should have. Sounds perfect with whole step down tunings too, they do not rumble unless you hit really hard. Also, my bass tone has changed a lot due to these strings, gives nice round bottom end sound. If you string them properly, tuning does run down at all. I personally love DR strings, ordered my 2nd set already.

luke warm

I didn't really notice a difference between these strings and the high beams I usually get. We tune down a full step, and these didn't help with tension or feel to me. They also went dead faster then my high beams unless it was just a bad batch. Still love DR's anyway.
