    Well, I've tried them all and I've come full circle. DR Sunbeams not only feel good under my fingers but they age well. Once the initial crispness goes away I'm left with a very pleasing mid range and just enough warmth and growl. They are working great on everything from my P basses to Stingrays. I'm tired of experimenting anyway. Give me my Beams! :)

    I tend to go back and forth from Sunbeams to Fat Beams. Both really good strings.

    I’ve ran the gamut of DR strings (and a few other brands) on my G&L JB-2, and sunbeams brought out the best tone of the instrument. Great strings.

    I used sunbeams for years. Loved them. Trying some other strings now, EB cobalts and some NYXLs. If these don’t pan out, I’m with you. Back to Sunbeams. Not even sure why I’m trying other. Lol

    I tried them once a while ago and remember not liking them too much. Seemed a little dull sounding and very flexible. Maybe I could give them another shot

  7. Well, they're not bright and yes they are flexible. That's the appeal to a lot of people.
