    I am looking to buy a set of dr strings hi beams. I haven't really played dr strings before and i want to know what is the difference in tone between the heavy hi beams(.50) and the medium hi beams(.45).

    Don't know, since I only play light, and I would recommend playing light gauge to just about any player.

    Main difference is on tension and playability
