DR Strings MR545 Hi-Beams 5-String Electric Bass Strings (Medium, 45-125)

These hand-made bass strings shine all the way down to "B." Nickel-wound for bright, balanced tone, DR Hi-Beam strings' round core increases flexibility.

HI-BEAMS 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 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.

I won't use any other strings than DR's. Used to use Blue Steels, but they go dead really fast. These don't. 'nuff said.
Nice and bright, with just enough growl. Good consistency string to string, and set to set. The only strings I play are DR's.
They don't seem to need to be stretched nearly as much as other strings. I love that. I usually tune them about 1/2 to a full step sharp, and stretch them several times, and then tune them accurately once all of them are on. I never have intonation problems after that.
Ease of Use
They string up just like any other string, but seem to have a little more flex to them.
Always consistent. great strings.
You get what you pay for. Pay $12 for a 5 string set, you get a cheap-ass set of strings. Pay $40, and you'll be happy with them.
