DR Sunbeams MNR-45 Bass Guitar Strings

DR Sunbeams MNR-45 Bass Guitar Strings are electric bass guitar strings that produce warm and bright tones with a softness of feel and an increased response to magnetic pickups due to the sensitive magnetic content (compared to stainless steel) of the nickel-plated wrap wire. The set contains four medium-gauge strings wound with nickel-plated wrap on round core wire (45 65 85 and 105).

The DR Sunbeams represent DR’s “next-generation” of nickel-plated bass strings. Wound upon round cores, the Sunbeams offer up the feel and flexibility of DR’s round-core bass strings. Yet, thanks to the nickel, they add that unmistakable warmth, soft-feel, and increased magnetic response. For all those reasons, respected bassist Tony Franklin loves the DR Sunbeams on his fretless.

Since 1989, DR has been committed to crafting hand made, superb-quality instrument strings. By blending the best of old-fashioned handmade craftsmanship with cutting edge materials or string coatings, DR continues to push the boundaries of the string-making process. That commitment to quality is what has brought countless top-flight bassists and guitarists to string-up with DRs — from U2’s Adam Clayton to Phish’s Trey Anastasio and everywhere outside and in between. 

Like all DR Strings Sunbeams are handmade in the USA from all-American materials.
