OVERVIEW

K3T Black Beauties coated electric guitar strings on hexagonal core.

DRs EXTRA-Life Black Beauties offer guitar players a superior black coated string without sacrificing the crisp tone, clarity, and volume of traditional DR HandMade Strings. EXTRA-Life is a super thin advanced .0003" coating on the plain electric guitar strings and on the wrap wire for added protection.

DR's remarkable, and proprietary, patent pending K3T Technology Coating is the first coating that makes no apologies and no excuses. Players say these strings have less unwanted overtones, more volume, great clarity and articulation than standard uncoated strings. Yet, they provide the same protection against corrosion due to humidity and perspiration as well as the increased tonal life coated strings have come to be known for.

Comments about DR Strings Black Beauties Coated Electric Strings Medium-Heavy (10-52):

These strings are good at first but get very very dull very soon. And the black coating wears right off revealing the silver string underneath. Plan to replace these soon, they would only last one show with neat looking strings. For the price there are much better coated strings out there.

They sound good. And they stay in tune well but honestly they feel terrible it hurts to play after about 30 minutes but you did buy heavy strings so what do you expect

Comments about DR Strings Black Beauties Coated Electric Strings Medium-Heavy (10-52):

First off, the tone of these strings are AWESOME... heres the catch.. these strings from this company is a hit and miss when it comes to durability. Ive noticed right off when these strings are bent during installing they get super weak and are prone to breaking.. more so than what i would call normal.. on the other hand when you do get a good set of strings they feel, and sound oustanding (a warm tone with lots of sustain).. overall though its not worth the money to keep gambling on wheather or not you will get a good set or a bad set... Also the color coating wears off with in 10 mins at all the places you play most with the pick or fingers.. if DR lowered their prices a few dollars, they might be reasonable.. i switched to earnballs 3115' seem to be a lot better quality, but missing DR's sound..

Comments about DR Strings Black Beauties Coated Electric Strings Medium-Heavy (10-52):

if you want good tone with a lot of pepper on your guitar then, this is it. At first glance they look awesome. I didn't even know they were black until I took them out of the package (I had ordered some pure blues, but for some reason they sent me 3 of pure and 3 of these). The only flaw (and it's a major one) is that they chip horrendously. I practice 6-7 hrs a day and they didn't make it past the first day before starting to chip. So, keep that in mind when purchasing.

Comments about DR Strings Black Beauties Coated Electric Strings Medium-Heavy (10-52):

I bought a couple of these at a local music shop to try them out, and I fell in love with them. I've used pretty much every type of string out there over the years, and I have to say, these are my favorite. They have a pretty good lifespan, they stayed fresh for about a month with playing everyday for an average of probably 3-4 hours a day, which is pretty good in my opinion. They look amazing, black strings are always a cool feature. Really my only complaints are that they don't come with a wound 3rd string, which I would prefer to use, and that they're kinda expensive. They lasted about 3-4x longer than Ernie Ball strings that I have been using for the past year or so. I try to change brand/make of strings that I use about once a year, but I think I've finally found the perfect set of strings!
