Perfect for a Duff McKagan Bass

Comments about DR Strings BKB-50 Black Beauty Heavy Bass Strings:

I put these on a Fender Artist Signature Series Duff McKagan Bass. They are awesome for that instrument. The coating is a bit touchy and you have to be careful running it through the saddle. I'm not sure if this was intended, but it seems the coating also acts to cut down on fret buzz. I personally like the tone these strings bring out of the Fender Duff Bass. I was looking for a bit of a growl and great bottom which this does for what I like to hear.

Won't be buying these again

By Traben2011

from fayetteville, nc

Comments about DR Strings BKB-50 Black Beauty Heavy Bass Strings:

I just got a set of these and put them on a brand new traben 4 string. Played a show the same night and they performed great. Did a show last night (1 week later) and the E string broke from the bridge end about 3/4 through the set. whats worse is i didn't have a backup instrument or string available and we were being filmed. had to finish out the set limping along without that string. needless to say i was not happy. i do play pretty aggressively but every other type of string ive used can take it. this is the second set of DR string i've bought and the second set to screw up. they did sound great but for the cost you'd think they would be more reliable.

Best Strings Ever

By ForeverAtLast

from Brazil, IN

Comments about DR Strings BKB-50 Black Beauty Heavy Bass Strings:

If you haven't played these strings on your bass you need to. They are the smoothest and best sounding strings I have played! Give them a shot. I promise you won't regret it!
