My old lo-riders died, so I went string shopping today. I decided on the DR mm5-130 fat beams. WOW! I have never had such clarity on my b string before. I went with the .130's because of the 34" scale, and they sound fantastic. Pretty brite, but I can't wait to play them with my group, I bet they will blend with the mix great. Until now I didn't think it was possible to slap my b string, it always sounded to muddy. I was blaming the scale, it was the strings all along. Has anybody else tried them?
