DR Sunbeam String Reviews

Review: DR Sunbeam 13 - 56
Rating you give the DR Sunbeam Strings: 3 - Good product give it a try

Likes: Fattened up trebles for a noticeably more "bell like" tone.

Dislikes: Produced less 'woody', less articulate tone in bass register. This isn't a trade-off I'm willing to make, personally, but alot of people like these, so give 'em a try.

Additional Comments: On my Martin Ind. Rswd/Adi. dred, I found these actually colored the overall timbre quite a bit-- not a bad sound-- I just prefer D'Addario Phosphor Bronze.

Review: DR Sunbeam Acoustic
Rating you give the DR Sunbeam Strings: 2 - Did the job nothing special

Likes: crisp tone

Dislikes: Way to bright for my tastes. No bass response to speak of.

Additional Comments: Martin strings or D'addarrio's still the way to go. These strings will be cut and discarded.

Rating you give the DR Sunbeam strings:  5 - Best string I ever played

Likes:  Mediums play like lights. Minimum string noise.  Wound strings provide great sustain and crispness.

Dislikes:  Nothing comes to mind.

Additional Comments:  These strings play nearly identical to the Newtone Master Class double wounds.

Like about the DR Sunbeam strings:  A really nice-sounding phosphor bronze set offering good string life and balance tone.  Just the right amount of bass and brightness for my my particular guitar (an older late 1940's era D-28).

Dislike about the DR Sunbeam strings:  What is there to dislike?

Additional Comments:  DR's medium designation is actually a .012 or light gauge.  Like flatpicks, the mm is a more accurate spec than generalized sizings.
