Hi-Beam stainless steel bass strings are round wound and constructed on a round core which is unique in the industry. Hi-Beams require much more time, care and extra steps to make than other bass strings. The extra effort DR expends making Hi-Beams results in a bass string that is highly flexible and musically but not harshly bright.  They are renowned for durability, unusually long life, consistency and string-to-string balance. They don’t eat your frets.  HI-BEAMS are the string to choose for brightness, punch and ease of playing. Hi-Beam bass strings require much more time, care and extra steps to make than other bass strings.

DR Strings are handmade (not machine-made) because their highly trained engineers are capable of making the micro adjustments needed throughout the winding process for the best and sound and feel possible. DR bass strings are made with more metal than one realises at first. By way of example, before a DR .105 gauge bass string is carefully wound, core wire and wrap wire that gauge at .108 are prepared. After a process called 'Compression-Winding", a DR bass string that gauges .105 is produced.

Material: Stainless Steel. Round Core Wire with Ball End.

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.
