    I usually use jazz strings on my acoustic but decided to try these. They really sound good on my Paramount guitar which was made around 1940.

    Just doesn't stand up in tone or quality

        Comments about DR Strings Black Beauties Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        unimpressed. Bought them for the color against my plain black fret board. Looked cool when they went on, but had the strange effect of feeling thick, yet sounding tinny. Coating comes off pretty fast over the sound hole even with a light pick. Don't know how long they would have lasted because I changed them to a set of elixers after a week.

        I put these on my new HD-28V and they are the worst sounding acoustic strings I have ever tried. I Threw them in the trash. Muddy sounding and dead.

        Comments about DR Strings Black Beauties Medium Acoustic Guitar Strings:

        All good !
        It's true, these strings sound better,than uncoated strings ,have a great feel and look.
        First time I have used these, but going by past experience with DR, they will most likely get a 10
