I've been a fan of DR strings for a few years now, and I've always played either the low beams of the Marcus Miller series strings from DR. I wanted to try a coated string, and just for fun I thought I'd go with the Cool Blue color. First off, the most important part... these strings have the classic DR sound. I was afraid that the coating would drastically change the tonal quality of the strings. While it is slightly different, if it pays off in greater times between string changes it will be worth it! The blue looks great up close, and under stage lighting it can be seen from probably 20 ft away. Much further than that, and it seems like they just look dark against the bass. Overall, if the extra cost will cut my string changes in half, it'll be worth it!
The best way to describe these beauties. They look great in pictures!
