On an AB1-5? I wrote to them and they said they have a 40" wound length. They have a taper core and are made for Laklands & Modulus. I wonder if the taper is too far into the string from the bridge because Lakes have a string thru body. Thanks,

Hi I'm no too sure what prompted your question but I use DR highbeams in the XLR 30-90 set. They fit perfectly, I use a dingwall B but the DR XLR 125 will fit fine as well. Any guage DR XLR set will fit your AB1-5 perfectly. N

If the DR XLRs will fit, how about the DR Low Riders? Are they the same lengths?

Yup, lowriders are plenty long enough for your Dingwall for 4 string standard set, I havent tried a 5 string set as I use a Dingwall B but my guess is that the the lowrider B would be good too. (thats a guess, check with your dealer to see if I'm right). The Lowriders are noticeable stiffer than the highbeams (too stiff for my tastes) but sound great, both of these string types from DR last a very long time. N

Hey Nic DB, where do you get your Dingwall B strings? I'm assuming you buy them as singles. And, I have a Lakland 5594 that I put DR Longnecks on. The Longnecks DO have a very long section of string past the taper at the ball-end of the string, probably around 3 inches. I wouldn't and haven't tried putting them on my Dinger for this reason. I just ordered some Dingwall strings and some DR longnecks from Bass Central in Florida. Their Dingwall 5 string sets are supposed to be $45, but they honored the website price of $35. That will not last long!! They'll get that corrected in a hurry.

They dont come in official packs of five which is apparent from the various different wrapping they come in; ziplocks, ceran wrap, freezer bag ties etc...but who cares they do the job! N

The step is too long on the Long Necks. You'll wind up with intonation problems. I assume they are meant for string through body bridges.

[quote="Sheldon Dingwall":1o7ex1cb]The step is too long on the Long Necks. You'll wind up with intonation problems. I assume they are meant for string through body bridges.[/quote:1o7ex1cb] Saw this first hand the other day when I received my used AB-I 6er. I use DR longnecks on my Lakland and recognized them immediately on the AB, they have a pretty distinct design and wrap pattern. Anyways, I checked the intonation and there was definite issues. Not to mention the fact that the narrow (over-the-bridge) portion of the string was so long that I found myself plucking notes on the thin sections, which sounded BAD. I've now installed a set of GHS Boomers M3045X Long Scale plus w/ the matching .136 B (DYB136) fom juststrings and a C I had laying around. I had to trim the silk on the B, but it fit. They sound great, but are tighter than DWs.
