Fat-Beams are compression wound to produce fat mids, bright highs and that distinct edgy Fat-Beam sound.

Hand-made with the finest American stainless steel available, wound on round cores for increased flexibility and tone.

DR Strings are hand-made (not machine-made) enabling their expert string-makers to make micro adjustments needed through the winding process for the best sound and feel possible.

The Difference is Real.

DR Handmade Strings, brainchild of Al Dronge, founder of Guild Guitars and passed onto his son Mark Dronge, is a company that takes pride in producing handmade strings on a big scale in a market where machines are increasingly more prominent.  DR Handmade Strings consider handcrafted strings, American made, with American materials often more accurate and consistent than machine made and also re-established the importance of round core strength.  The DR ZEBRA strings which were the first out of the factory are made alternating between phosphor bronze and nickel plated steel windings.  Dr Handmade Strings introduced the first colour coated strings in 2001 advancing to NEON coating strings in 2010.  The latest DR DDT drop down tuning sets are optimized for low tuning retaining tuning, stability and tension.

DR Strings FAT-BEAMS Stainless Steel 45-125 Bass Guitar Strings, 5-String, Long Scale

DR make the best bass strings - sound great, feel great, last ages - I wish they would make some half-wounds though, which is what I use on my fretless bass.

DR make the best bass strings on the market and I use them on all my fretted basses. They cost more than most others but last longer so its justified. I wish they made a pressure wound string too as I use those on my fretless.
