    They are a little harder to find. I use them on my carvin and I really like them (especially med-lite .045-.100). I ususally get them from
    www.juststrings.com
    good service, better than avg prices (you can find cheaper).
    Don't know if they ship to spain??

    I checked Just Strings, and they do ship internationally, for $35 (!) per order. Looks like they have five-string Sunbeams, too. Also try www.sheetmusicplus.com , they seem to have international shipping for less, and they list five-string Sunbeams, although they have a one- to two-week lead time before shipping.

    I paid for all my gear myself. Well, me and MasterCard.
    I just put a set on my Carvin LB75 a week ago. Not bad, a bit mellower than the Hi-Beams, and pretty smooth for a roundwound.

    The folks at BunnyBass had a deal on them for a very short time. I got 3 more sets for $18 each plus shipping! They're sold out now, sorry to say.

    I've been pretty happy with juststrings.com for price, selection, and quick delivery, but I live in the US.

    Yes I tried them and after waiting for over a month of waiting I cancelled my order. I sheems that all stores are out of supply and DR does not deliver to them anymore.

    Has anyone actually seen a store that says we have them now

    i guess that's why my last order from juststrings took so long...
    man, that really sucks, cuz SunBeams were gonna be my strings for life.
    oh well, i guess time to start the search again.

    Say it ain't so! I love DR Sunbeams and don't want to string my bass with anything else!

    i ordered sunbeams yesterday via BassCentral.
    the word is: DR is treating them as custom order sets.
    so, if you really want them, order them through a dealer that has good communication with DR.
    mine will be drop-shipped to me directly from the factory... but the only bad part was i had to order 3 sets minimum... came out to well over a $100~ (for 5 string bass)
    yikes!
