    As reviewed by michael k. mcgee on 3/11/2010

    i first noticed these strings because of their black color, very cool!so i tried a set. they feel different than any other string right from the start...then as i played them, i loved them! they have stayed brighter much longer than any other brand ive tried(and playing bass for over 20 yrs.almost every week, ive tried em all) best set of strings ive ever used!

  • Feel good, look good at first, sound ok

    As reviewed by Dan Rowley on 12/31/2013

    The main reason to get black strings is the look, and they do look awesome. However, that coating does chip off fairly soon. I added a picture of the strings after one day of playing. The coating makes the strings feel slinkier and rubbery, softer. The tone is pretty good, if a little muted. I've heard that coating can kill the tone, but they sound decent. Look is awesome though. I'm going to ride them out and see how the coating chips over time.

  • Some great strings

    As reviewed by SwimmingBird on 10/30/2006

    Black Beauties -- the perfect string. I like DRs anyway, very clear, but a good low end. Black Beauties are even better than their normal strings, so the coating must do something. Not to mention how amazing they look on a black bass. Saddly the color goes away pretty quickly (at least they do when you hit the strings as hard as I do). They seem to be more reactive to an Ebow, but that may be DRs in general. Great strings, my favorite for any type of music.
