    I just picked up 4 sets of DR strings of assorted sizes and types, Sun Beams and Hi Beams. Sadly no Lo riders for only 8 bucks a set. Im gonna go back and buy the rest of the stores stock, but if you look you might find en too.

    I have never used these strings before, just the loriders, how do they compare???

    $8 a set!!!! You lucky devil! You will probably find that the Hi-Beams and Sunbeams have a lower tension than the Lo-Riders. Also, the Sunbeams are Nickelplated steel which should give a smoother feel and warmer sound. So, Why is this store selling DR strings so cheap?

    going out of bussiness, i should also mention that it was a record store and that the chain was going out of bussiness. marked 29.99, the guy told me that they were 60% off, but when he rang em it they were 19.99 at 60% off that $8 + tax, you can'y beat that!
