          they look cool....but that's it. sound is very warm and muted. no extra note bends on these strings. they chip after one day of use....hey I tried im going back to Ernie ball.

                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.
