DR and jazz bass!

  1. Hi there!

    What would be better? Hi-beam or lo-rider. I'm playing something like jazz-simpho-rock, not very hard, but with many diferent bass lines that shuld cut trough the guitar and drum.
    Something like: gong, focus, periferia del mondo...

    You know, I'm going to be honest that I can't really tell any noticable difference in the various DR strings. I just grab whatever stainless steel strings they have available and in a guage that's acceptable to me. I'm rocking lo-riders right now and just took of hi-beams that I had on for about a year, so it's hard to compare, but I notice virtually no difference in feel. Of course it's brighter now, but I remember the hi-beams being nice and bright when new too. I'm usually perceptive to small differences, but the whole roundcore and hexcore differences must be very little.

    The Hi-Beams have some piano tone going on with them, if that's what you're looking for. Not so much with the Lo Riders IME. Lo Riders do feel stiffer.
  4. Thanks!

    Gonna try with the hi-beams first.
