Coated Bass Strings For Extended Life!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. For reliable tone — acoustic or electric — you can rely on the handcrafted strings from DR.
With the DR Extra-Life Black Beauties bass strings, you'll snag the signature crisp tone, clarity, and volume of DR's traditional handmade strings. Yet, you'll get the added bonus of DR's super-thin coating on the plain strings and on the wrap wire, which extends the life of your favorite strings. And, just as the name suggests, DR's Extra-Life Black Beauties sport a stealth-style black coating.

by Sasha fromI have used GHS coated strings, boomers, DR non-coated, rotosound, and on and on and on... these black beauties are the best.

They don't have nearly the same deadening effect on your to... read more [+]ne that most coated strings have. The tone stays consistent for weeks instead of days, and it's warm, punchy, and articulate. Plus, the coating gives you a great slick playing surface on the fretboard and reduces nasty string noise.
It's a VERY NICE! Number one string in Kazakhstan. close [-]
