      DR Strings Extra Life BKE7-9 Black Beauties Coated Light Electric Guitar Strings - 7 String Set (104620026)
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.

Guages 9-11-16-24-32-42, 52.

DR Strings Extra Life BKE7-9 Black Beauties Coated Light Electric Guitar Strings - 7 String Set Features:

  • Gauges 9-11-16-24-32-42-52
    The latest in coated technology for increased tonal life

  • Awesome Strings!

    As reviewed by Phillip B on 10/14/2010

    I bought these strings from a local guitar shop not too long ago. Before I got these, I was all about the Dean Markley Blue Steels. But I saw these and thought "They are color coated. Thats awesome!". I waited until my Blue Steels aged some and then threw these on. Immediately I was hooked. The black coating is awesome. The strings feel really good on your fingers when you play and they don't really loosen up that much when you first tighten them up. They also have a great tone. I may shop around and experiment, but these strings are totally worth the money.

  • Not Bad!

    As reviewed by Wesley Shipp on 12/22/2010

    I tried these because everyone say's they are really good strings, they do very well, love the tone, feel, and durability! I can dive these things as hard as I want and they stand up, hold tune without any trouble. I was really impressed when I put them on and it took half the stretching of other strings I've used, big plus! I don't play professionally so you decide. I have heard some negatives on how the black coating wears off and it does a little but without effecting tone or durability, just a cosmetic thing that nobody really cares about anyway. I actually prefer the DR Pinks as they are a little lighter string and I bend a lot, and they hold up just as well. Good luck and rock on all you crazy musicians out there!

  • Awesome coating!

    As reviewed by Sky Clark on 7/24/2012

    I really loved these strings. I actually only used the first 6 of the set for my xiphos guitar. They worked and held really well for the way my guitar was set-up (1/2 step down D# tuning). Harmonics hit well, strings felt nice, coating + strings lasted long as heck! I would recommend them to anybody looking for a light-like set of strings. Do not work well with anything down a step or more!
