OVERVIEW

Blue coated wire for extra life and protection.

The K3 Coating on DR Strings' Cool Blue Electric Strings is the first coating that players report, "sounds as good or better than uncoated strings." DR's remarkable, proprietary K3 Technology Coating is the first coating that makes no apologies and no excuses for not delivering sound equal to uncoated strings. Players have remarked that these strings have more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation then standard, uncoated strings. Yet, they provide the same protection due to corrosion and perspiration as well as increased tone life that coated strings are known for.

Great long lasting quality strings and great tone.

By Gustavo Pena

Comments about DR Strings Cool Blue Coated 4-String Bass Medium (45-105):

Although "versatile and crisp" these strings can be used by any type of musician, you must keep in mind that these strings must be used in standard tuning. If you play anything Lower than DADG Tuning these strings are not for you. You will need a thicker string and unfortunately you will not find these same strings in a thicker gage (At least not here on Musician's Friend). I also do not recommend coated strings for musicians who use picks because you will eventually remove the coating and your strings will eventually become dull faster than they should. What I loved about these strings was the fact that they're coated so they will last you a long time and longer if you take care of them. The color also attracted a lot of attention (Always good when you're trying to impress a crowd).
Quality Tip: Make sure to cut the necessary amount of string needed for your bass never over wrap the string around the post. Also, make sure to crimp the string end when placing it on the post (It will keep the wound on the string in tact and your strings will not go dull before they should) This tip is usually included inside DR Strings sets.
A little pricey but they are quality strings and they last longer, so in reality the price is not too bad.

Comments about DR Strings Cool Blue Coated 4-String Bass Medium (45-105):

the strings are still new so I cant address the long life issue. The tone is exactly what I was looking for and they are even accross and up and down the fretboard. A bonus issue, they look cool.
