SIGNATURE & SPECIALTY

  • FAT BEAMS™
    Marcus Miller Signature Series.
    Stainless Steel Bass Strings wound on Round Cores
    Marcus Miller has personally worked with DR to develop a new and improved version of one of the best stainless round wound bass strings on the market. The effort took over a year, and the result is a “fatter, deeper, smoother” string that satisfied Marcus Miller’s demanding standard. Fatter tone, Deeper sound, smoother feel and response are the qualities that separate Marcus Miller “Fat-Beams” from all other ordinary bass strings. “Fat-Beams” are also more consistent in feel along the length of the string, as well as string to string.

  • JONAS HELLBORG Signature Set

    Single Nickel Wrap wound on Round Cores
    “Sound starts at the string. What the string can produce the amplifier and speaker can reproduce. The opposite is equally true. The formula for the set of strings contained in this box is simplicity and purity.  Each string is wound on a high carbon steel round cores, so that pure nickel wire can be wrapped completely in contact, and tight around it. The use of round cores also provides extra flexibility as compared to hex cores…thus it is more sensitive to touch. Each string has only one layer of wrap wire allowing it to vibrate freely, and provide a beautiful tone that can bite when you dig in”

    “The tonal characteristic of these strings is open, and clear with a shimmering overtone spectrum adding to percussive detail. On regular bass strings the overtone is slightly stronger than the fundamental. That makes the note sound an octave higher than it really is. On these uniquely designed and constructed strings the fundamental is cleaner, deeper and louder…comparable to the strings of a grand piano. The tone and expressiveness of the Jonas Hellborg Signature strings has no match. Welcome to a brand new start in bass guitar sound, from the bottom up”

  • DIMEBAG DARRELL Signature Set
    Nickel-Plated on Hex Cores...Treated with String-Life™.
    “I’ve been playin’ the strings of strength since 1995. I like the way DR Strings feel and react, you can really get a grip on them. They’re great for everything, from big ol’ string bends, to huge whammy bar dives, perfect for blood curdling harmonic screams and just straight out heavy chunky riffin’. They also stay in perfect tune and remain fresh and bright for an amazingly long time.”

  • ALEXI LAIHO Signature Set

    Nickel-Plated on Round Cores...Treated with String-Life™.
    “Awesome strings…I’ve been playing them forever”. They sound big, fat and bend like no other. It’s an awesome feeling when you know that you can really bang the crap out of your guitar without having to worry about snapping a string no matter how crazy you are slammin it, testing the limits with a whammy bar or gnarly bends. The fact that DR strings never let me down says it all. We tune down in D so I use 10’s and 11’s, they work out.

    Oh, and they taste great!”
