DR Strings Long Necks are taper stainless steel bass strings wound on a hex cores.
Contemporary bass players, who demand a taper string to enable modern bass playing techniques, will be delighted by the superior performance the Long Necks deliver.
Today’s 4, 5 and 6 string bass players searching for increased stability in the lower registers will find great clarity and definition with DR’s tapered bass strings.
Long Necks use a single wrap around the core as the narrow winding passes over the bridge.
Taper core bass strings have less windings (string thickness) over the bridge saddles. This design help produce a brighter tone and greater sustain. Many modern bass bridges require taper strings for larger gauge string fitment.
