Advanced black coating for EXTRA-Life and Protection over taper cores.
DR's EXTRA-Life strings offer bass players superior black coated strings without sacrificing the crisp tone, clarity, and volume of traditional DR HandMade Strings. EXTRA-Life has a super thin advanced .0003" black coating on the plain strings and on the wrap wire—the thinnest coating DR knows of.
Contemporary bass players, as well as bass makers, who demand a taper core string to enable modern bass playing techniques, will be delighted by the superior performance Taper Core bass strings deliver. Today's 4, 5 and 6-string bass players searching for increased stability in the lower registers will find great clarity and definition with DR's tapered bass strings. DR Taper Cores use a single wrap around the core as the narrow winding passes over the bridge.
