Dragon Skin—the invisible coating.

Gauges: 12-16-24-32-42-54

K-3 Coating
The K3™ coating is the first coating that players report sounds as good as or better than uncoated strings. DR’s new, remarkable, proprietary and patent pending K3™ Technology Coating is the first coating that makes no apologies and no excuses for not delivering sound equal to uncoated strings. Players say these strings have more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation than 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.

DR Handmade Strings combine old fashioned craftsmanship with only the very finest American made materials.

      Comments about DR Strings DSA-12 Dragon Skin K3 Coated Acoustic Strings Medium:

      My first set had the D string explode during installation. They calin their is a flattened are you can feel with your finngers where to crimp and bend the sting to stop the cnace of the core breaking and winding doing what it does when that happena. Well it happened. DR was fine with sending me another set. But after installation, they sound like squeaky uncoateds. If your used to Elixirs you may find this unacceptable. The woud strings are boomy compared to the unwound. They sound good for softer played songs but I found them poor for bluegrass and hard pickin'. I don't know if Planet Waves Humidipaks are reccomended but I use the and after just a day in the case with the humidification, they seemed to lose the sound of fresh strings. I can't reccommend them.
