    A buddy of mine uses them on his 76 P-Bass and they always sound bright and clear. I prefered the Low Riders myself. Good feel on the strings, always sounded good and felt good to me.

    Highbeams are the only string I will use on my Warwick 5 string. I've yet to find another string (including lo-riders) that sound as good. They have a nice bite to the tone and last forever.

    I think if you do a search for them you'll find alot of info here. DR's have been a favourite for along time

    I like the DR highbeams on my 6 string. It's too bad really because I often have a difficult time getting them in a 6 string set. I have been ordering them online so all is good for now. I tried the low riders but only had them on for a set. Those babies were too stiff and damn near wore me out.
    So that's what I know about DR highbeams.

    I use Highbeams on my shortsclae basses and Lowriders on my longscale basses. Passive, active whatever they sound great on my Rick, Spector, BC rich, Washburn, every bass I put them on.
