Formerly known as the DR Marcus Miller "Fat Beam" MM6, the redesigned package houses the same excellence that the masses fell in love with while the package before the Marcus Miller name.

Fat-Beams are compression wound to produce fat mids, bright highs, and that distinct edgy Fat-Beam sound.  Hand-made with the finest American stainless steel available, wound on round cores for increased flexibility and micro adjustments needed throughout the winding process for the best sound and feel possible.  The difference is REAL.

DR bass strings are made with more metal than one realizes at first.  By way of example, before a DR .105 gauge bass string is carefully wound, core wire and wrap wire that gauge at .108 are prepared.  After a process we call "Compression-Winding," a DR bass string that gauges at .105 is produced.

The ratios and principles of "Tite Fit" (TM)/"Compression-Winding" are used for the specifications and manufacture of all DR strings.  At DR they craft their strings at tension.  The following is one example of how the DR wrap/ratio formula works...in this case for .105's core wire is .022, the first wrap wire is .009 x 2 (top and bottom covers).  The second wrap wire is .014 x 2, and the their wrap wire is .020.   The total before winding is .108, the total after winding is .105.  The whole is less than the sum of it's parts.
