Sunbeams are another step forward on a continuing path for players who constantly seek to upgrade their skills and tools to achieve musical satisfaction.

Sunbeams are the next generation of nickel-plated bass strings as they are wound on round cores. Sunbeams are a step forward for the traditional player and the advanced exponent of fretless bass player, both of whom want brightness and warmth.

Sunbeams feature the easily recognizable feel and flexibility of DR round core construction, with nickel warmth, softness of feel and increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel plated wrap wire. Tony Franklin says "Sunbeams amaze me.I love them on my fretless". Sunbeams are a long time favourite of Adam Clayton as well.

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.
