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.

Extra Heavy Gauge: 12-15-24-32-42-52.

Sounds poor, breaks easily.

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-12 Black Beauties Extra Heavy Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

I'm not sure who DR are trying to please by coloring GUITAR STRINGS, but it's a ridiculous idea and shows how silly musicians can be. I bought these because I wanted the quality of DR strings, except coated, and had to settle with these dress-up strings. "High e" broke after ten to twenty minutes of leisurely playing (I never 'stretch' strings to break them in), so I replaced it. Doesn't have the clarity other coated strings have, but maybe the color is biasing my perception.

STAY AWAY!

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-12 Black Beauties Extra Heavy Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

these strings are extremely brittle for the reputation they are trying to hold.. High E and G string broke with in 10 mins playing.. strings were stretched ect ect... bought a 2nd set to give them a chance.. put them on seem to be holding up ok, my g string again broke but at the tuner knob, while bending the string down slightly.. barely any pressure, just broke.. after these strings are worn out / break, will be going back to EB's dont waste your time with these..
