          Great Bass Strings with a 120 B String

          Comments about DR Strings BLACK BEAUTIES Coated 5-String Bass Light (40-120):

          I bought these for the 120 gauge and could not be happier. They sound consistant for several months and even as they start to age and the sound "dulls" they still last and perform night after night.
          Features are coated strings for long life, and a custom guage.
          Feel good and have never broken a string. Even after 6 months of every weekend playing.
          They last as long as I need. Which is good considering they are over the $40 price range.
