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

        I knew what to expect from a DR String, having used Fat Beams on my basses for years. With a new 6-string, I decided to try the Black Beauties for aesthetic reasons and curiosity. The sound is great and is consistent across the length of the string. But, they feel good and don't sound muted as some "coated" strings do. Will probably continue to buy Beauties for this bass, they make it sing.

          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.

                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.
