      DR Strings Extra Life BKE-9 Black Beauties Lite Coated Electric Guitar Strings (102167418)
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 9-11-16-24-32-42.

DR Strings Extra Life BKE-9 Black Beauties Lite Coated Electric Guitar Strings Features:

  • Gauges 9-11-16-24-32-42

    As reviewed by Mike on 6/12/2010

    I have no idea why other people are breaking these things putting them on, its the only set of strings I use. I gig with them at least 2 a month, and play almost everyday, and i'm getting 3-4 months a set right now. Great feel, great tone. I used to use exilirs, and was recommended these about 2 years ago haven't gone back since. The coating really helps reduce irritation to your fingers during extended playing. Black with wear off with heaving usage. Do yourself a favor and pick up a pack, worth the price any day. Seriously best string I've ever played

  • Don't Waste Your Money, Buy Demarzio

    As reviewed by Master Guitarist 16 on 2/16/2007

    I have bought these strings twice, once the black beauties and once the silver stars. In the first pack (the black beauties) I ahve two strings break just while putting them on my guitar and in the second pack I also had two strings break. I have changed strings countless time so I know it wasn't something I did. These things suck, don't waste your money.

  • Beautiful!

    As reviewed by 6 Stringed Maniac029 on 8/10/2007

    I have loved DR Strings since I have started using them. I tried numerous brands, but none compare to the DR's. The Black Beauties are coated, which gives them more slickness so you can pull off aggressive slides with ease, the tone is outstanding, and above all is the ultra long life. I play every day for at least 3 hours and these strings will still last me a month. But the best part is that they are black. The only problem I have had with these strings is that the black comes off where I pick, but they are still the best strings I have ever used.
