      DR Strings Extra Life BKE-11 Black Beauties Heavy Coated Electric Guitar Strings (102167434)
Availability:  


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.

Gauges 11-14-18-28-38--50.

  • damn good strings compared to elixir

    As reviewed by ibanez for life on 2/13/2007

    these strings last a hell of alot longer than ernie ball but are not as bright. they last longer than ghs boommers and are as bright as them. the problem is that the black coating wears off were you pick, and if you have a floyd rose then expect paint chip every along the fret board. ive been playing for 5 years and only broke 2 strings the higher E string from tunning to high. ive been playing these strings for about a year, and the only reason for it was becuase they stop selling elixer. these are the only strings ive played that compared to the life, tone, and comfort of elixers. i havent played d addario but mybe ill check them out.

  • Not Worth The Hype

    As reviewed by ERIC GOBLE on 10/24/2012

    Pros: Look really good at first. Stay in tune real well. Slick feeling. Cons: Coating randomly wears off quickly. Dull sounding compared to Ernie Ball Super Slinkys. Bottom line, these strings aren't reallyworth the money. The only thing they do is hold your tuning real well and they're very stretchy and I've yet to break one.

  • DR Strings... Wow!!!

    As reviewed by Muerte Guitarist 1 on 10/3/2006

    DR Black Beauties are the most amazing strings I have ever played on in my life. I have never seen anything that looked this bad ass string-wise, and the feel is flawless. The coating does nothing to the feel of the strings. These strings last 2 months with me, and I practice with my band 2-3 days a week for like 4 hours a day, and play 2-5 shows a month. Not to mention playing alone. Wow. These strings do NOT lose tone. Seriously, just buy these strings. I play Metal and it is extremely brutal on my strings, but these DRs handle it all. Much better than any other string on the market.
