DR Black Beauties

Black Beauties are DRs coated strings, which are roundwound with a hex core. The coating claims to make the strings last a lot longer and maintain the bright "new string" sound. Peacock Blue are the blue colored version of DRs coated strings.

User reviews verify that the Black Beauties live up to their claim of sporting greatly improved string life. Of course, string life is only one of many factors in choosing a string, but Black Beauties seem to deliver all around. They have a warm, pure tone- not quite as bright as the non-coated stainless steels- but one that does not die out, and many users report liking them even more as time goes on. Many express a preference to them over elixirs, slowounds and bluesteels for a variety of styles including blues, jazz, funk and rock. Greatly preferred over DRs other coated strings, the Bootzillas. Yes, by the way, the strings actually are black, and can look extremely cool on a black/white bass in my opinion.
