Customer Reviews

Sound great, look great - read the instructions!These look great, and as long as you follow correct string installation process you shouldn't encounter any dead strings. I was pretty worried after reading the reviews so found some online videos that demo the procedure to cut properly. There are also instructions on the inside of the package explaining how and why you need to bend the string prior to cutting. They also had plenty of length on all 5 strings, so that alleviated the concern I had with the review with the short B string.Some things I noticed on initial setup/playing... I did notice, similar to other reviews, that they are a little tacky feeling at first and you do get some what of a rope burn sensation when sliding around too much/too fast. You could probably use some string lubricant to cut down on both of those. However, one thing I haven't noticed is the typical finger soreness that brand new strings sometimes cause. It could be because I've been playing quite a bit more lately or that I the gauge of string is a little lighter than I've used. Overall, I'm very happy with the way they look and they sound great as well. As long as they last a decent period of time I'm planning on getting some more of these down the road.5A nice midway between roundwound and tapewoundI used to play on flatwounds, but a change in music genre required me to add some high frequencies to my tone. I started with tapewounds, then moved to these (actually to DR Neon, which are the same only more fabulous).My first two sets gave me no issues for about half a year each - after that the coating started to peel off. This had no notable effect on tone, but I feared uneven string coating may put unnecessary strain on the frets.As for tone, it is significantly more mellow than roundwounds. People who are used to Elixir or other "invisible" coatings complain about this. I think this sound is part of what these strings are. Rounds without the edge. There is still enough meat in the hu mids for a proper growl.5Great Strings!This is my second time using these strings. The first ones were given to me from a friend who had an extra pair. I loved them so much and they lasted so long. Decided to get them again and I have to say it's a great purchase. I use these on my Spector Legend 5 and they sound absolutely amazing. Great tone! There so versatile for many styles of music. The black coating stays on for quite a while. They only part where it comes off is underneath the strings where the frets are and where you pick the most at the pickups. As you may think that the black color takes away from the the sound and the quality that is completely false. These strings have an amazing sound, the color is just a bonus.5Good buy, recommended.Good strings. Have had them on for over a month and they are as bright as ever. A little squeeky, so I used some fret ease and it lessoned the noise a bit. Not the reason I bought them but, they look awesome on my bass! The coating will keep them like new for at least 3 times longer than uncoated strings. Would buy again.5Great stringsGreat strings! I'm on my 6th set if that says much... I'm playing a Warwick Thumb 5 string bass and they have a great look on it. The sound is amazing too but part of that is the bass. Warwicks are known for their sound... Anyway, I like the coated strings of DR by far more than any other that I've tried and these BBs sound fantastic on my bass! My only complaints and the reason for the 4 star rating is that on 2 of the 6 sets I've baught I've got a bad/dead string in the pack... One was the "G" string and the other was on the "A" string in 2 different sets. They were dead sounding new out of the package. I don't know whether or not it was my fault the string was dead from me cutting and winding the string on the tuning post but finding a single string to replace a bad one in the BBs has been difficult! My local music stores don't have singles in BBs and I haven't been able to find BB singles yet. The end result is needing to buy either another set of standard DR strings or another set of BB's to make up for the dead or faulty string (or just deal with it til it's time to replace them all). Whether or not it is my fault it's dead, I don't know but it's likely? I think that one reason might be the fact that the BB's have a solid core and the coating is on the wire that is then wrapped arround the core of the string. The result of this manufacturing process is that you have a "coated" string that feels and acts like a standard string... But, I think that occasionally the coated wrap will seporate from the core much easier resulting in a dead string if you're not carefull. Through trial and error (and a "tip" for others to try and use with the BBs), I have found that if you're extra carefull and make sure that you bend the string more than a 45 degree angle before you cut it to fit in the winding post, the chance of having the core seporate from the coated wrap is much less. And, keep in mind that because these strings are black, they are hard to see onstage in the dark while performing... Just means you gotta know where your fingers are or watch the inlays on your bass ;) But the BBs look cool and they sound and feel great! Personally, I can't tell the sound difference between these coated strings and a standard set but the feel is a little different. It's wierd, they are the same as standard string sets and yet different at the same time, feeling wise... I can't explain in words the feeling difference but I've found that most standard string sets can sometimes "eat" the calluses off my fingers where the BB's don't, or haven't yet anyway. This is a good thing for agressive finger style bass players like me! Over all, I would recomend them... If anything just to try... They do last longer! How much longer though, I don't know... Depends on how much you play, your tuning, how your instrument is set up, what kind of instrument you play and how clean you keep your hands. I have had my current set on for several months and they still sound like new. Personally, I'll continue to use them because I like them so much, I just wish that I could find single strings in the BBs other than buying a whole new set. I'm patiently waiting for DR to come out with a tapered set of BBs as the tapered sets fit better in the bridge of my Warwick Thumb. That's my experience with the BBs, give them a shot, chances are you'll be as happy as I am with them.4very good product and sound amazingLove the quality of the strings and the way they sound. Only dislike is the swishing or zinging noise when you run your hand over the strings to fast while playing.5The awesome sound tells the storyI admit I had some trouble with one of the strings slipping, but I managed. Following the instructions to size and crimp a 90 degree bend is really important. The talkbass forums had some ideas too. With that done, the strings sound awesome. This is my second attempt at coated strings after a long hiatus - back then the coating (different brand) really muffled the tone. I replaced a set tinny-sounding stock strings with these - DRs are much better sounding - despite being pretty much the same gauge for each string. That may have been more a function of the metal composition than the coating, but the coating didn't take away brightness like I thought it would. Definitely will be getting more.5Excellent strings. Get these black beauties!I have used another brand for about 20 years, but the last few packs went flat on me. So, I did some research and lots of sites pointed to DR's Black Beauties as a solid option.They were not wrong. These strings are GREAT. They have excellent punch, feel like regular round-wounds, and they hold up to a beating well. I am now a fan. Great strings AND a good price.I put a set of these on my Warwick Fortress 5 string and they just sound like thunder. I'm very pleased.5These will last you a good, long while and sound new for longer than ...These will last you a good, long while and sound new for longer than normal strings. I've had mine for about 6 months now and I'm still enjoying the tone. The feel is a bit different, which is fairly easy to acclimate to. What's not easy to acclimate to is how much these will burn your fingers while doing any sort of fast slides. Playing an outdoor gig in the sun? Do yourself a favor and put on another set. I love the way these look, but I won't be purchasing again due to how much they make me hate myself after playing anything that has a lot of movement and sliding.3Looks cool, sounds better than Elixir s!I bought these strings when I switched from Polyweb Elixir strings that came on my stock Ibanez SR605, and I had changed them to put on Elixir s because I had no complaints with the sound. When I switched to these, mostly for looks (don t do that!) I was very surprised with the sound they put out! It didn t have as much of a coated, muted, sound that the Elixirs had. Keep in mind, they need a couple weeks to break in but after that they sound amazing! I haven t had any issues with coating flaking off in the 3 years I ve used 3 sets of strings, along with no signs of wear, breaking, or excessive stretching. They stay in tune well as well, and the black looks amazing with my black hardware. The price is great as well, half the price of Elixir s.5
