DR Strings BKB45 Black Beauties Electric Bass Strings (Medium, 45-105)

Fortified by DR's EXTRA-Life coating, Black Beauties bass strings are pre-coated before winding for increased lifespan and exceptional tone and volume.

These coated black bass strings are on a round core, and come in a 4-string set. The DR K3 Black Beauties aren't just coated to look great, although that helps, the coating process improves the performance of these strings and makes them more corrosion resistant.

Been playing for 42 years and counting, with DR's for six years now. I'll give 'em up with my guns.
The DR coated strings sound great, and they last a long time. Other brands "10" sound good for a couple gigs and are afterwords worthless.
I love the colored strings. It's easier to meet girls now.
Ease of Use
Just like any other strings
This is where the DR strings shine. They are reliable from set to set and they will get you through those last few gigs in Japan sounding good and in tune. Opposite of RotoSound.
I bring and keep a couple spare sets, but I have never had a DR string break on the gig or off. A few bucks more for a superior long-lived product is what capitalism is all about. Put me on that train.
The Wow Factor
All the girls ask why my strings are red.
