These strings sing

By Douglas

from Pamplico, SC

I got these just because I had a coupon and wanted to see how they felt. They feel great! softer. And the sound is awesome. I have played using the Marcus Millers before but I like these a lot more. Some of the coating came off the B string on the first day, but you can only see it if you are close up. The strings sing. Great sustain and tone. Very easy to intonate and tune. They hold their tuning really good also.

Feel good, look good at first, sound ok

By Dan Rowley

from Chicago, IL

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.

Nice Strings

By JC Dupree

from Ripley, TN

Bought a set of BB's 3 weeks ago and they are very nice strings. Easy on the finger and you have less string noise. Don't get the clarity of DR medium High Beams or the DR Marcus Miller. DR medium High beams are my favorite but the BB's are smooth and the look so cool!

Nice strings to start with

By rick

from the Mitten(MI)

I bought these strings and they sound great, I have had them for 3 weeks now and the black color is wore off the stings were i strike them with my fingers. that is a real let down since they looked so nice to start. I figured they would look like this at 3 months not 3 weeks. they still sound good though.
