I've read several comments by fellow stainless steel round users that they find DR Hi Beams "polite" compared to other SS rounds like Rotosound Swing Bass 66, D'Addario ProSteels, Etc. Maybe it's just my rig and my playing style but I find them very aggressive and grindy overall. I also find that they can be tamed and actually have some warmth to them much easier than other SS rounds IMO. They seem to me to respond better to subtle changes in technique. How many Hi Beam users disagree with the "polite" label?
