ok... i've been using DR strings for years now. started with hi beams, switched to fat beams, just restrung both my 5'ers with dragon skins yesterday (coated hi beams) and fell in love instantly. punchy, fat, bright sound... but tamed. riddle me this, i was playing J. Guiles Band's "Angel is a centerfold," and the strings sounded perfect. ran through the first verse with the slap chops, all good. hit the second verse, went into the slap and my G string died on the second snap. went from "ping ping" to "thud thud" but the string didnt break?!?! *** happened?!?!?!?!??!
