New DR dead?

Discussion in 'Strings [BG]' started by Wedding Dress, Jan 4, 2004.

  1. I just bought DR Hi Beams and put them on about three days ago. They are really great strings but the d is already dead. :confused: I've noticed that the other strings were wrapped around twice and the d was wrapped around three times. Could this have anything to do with it? Is there anything I could do to revive it? This is probably a dumb thread, but hey its always good to learn something new.

    This is not uncommon. Contact DR and tell them you got a dud they should replace it.
  3. Sorry for my ignorance, but how do I go about doing this?

    Many thanks.

    I'd recommend calling them during business hours. I had a problem and got no reply from email. But when I called they sent me a new string right away for free.
