    Comments about DR Strings BKB6-30 Black Beauty 6-String Bass Strings:

    DR makes a superb string, the coated versions like this and like the Neon's not only provide awesome tone and sustain, but also are incredibly slick and make slides and runs effortless.

          Comments about DR Strings BKB6-30 Black Beauty 6-String Bass Strings:

          Have been using DR strings for years. For the first time in three years using the Black Beauties I got a "dead" C string. I was really surprised with this anomaly. Sent DR an email with the defective string info and they quickly send me a replacement free of charge. Besides that these are excellent strings which I will continue to use

          Good Choice

          Comments about DR Strings BKB6-30 Black Beauty 6-String Bass Strings:

          Fantastic
          I love the string color. I have a mahogany wood grain 6-string Ibanez with an Ampeg combo. The low .30g B-string gives my grooves a deeper sound.
          The wound coating is an adjustment, but it becomes transparent to your fingers.
          A little pricey but it's worth it. I have over 500 hours of playing on them already, and they still sound like new.
