Overview

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.

Great strings, great look

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

I've tried these two times on my white Series 10 dinky copy - great look, good for low-end tone but definitely solid strings.

Cool look, but wouldn't buy again

Pros

  • Great look

Cons

  • Nano coating wears off quickly

Best Uses

  • Practicing

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

I bought these strings primarily for the great look and they are that, great looking. They were expensive however and the nano coating is already starting to come off in the area where I strum with a pick.

In conclusion I suggest doing what most of the pros suggest. Instead of expensive coated strings buy cheaper and replace often. That said, I still might try DR's neon strings for the novelty, but save them for a performance or show.

Sweet Strings

By Shannon Swartzendruber

from Reese, Michigan

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

I really like these strings. They last a'lot longer than most others. I thing it makes guitar easier to play as far as sliding down neck. Finish will come off of picked area that's given,not a big deal. I would recommend these to all players even acoustic.

Disappointed

By RJ

from New York

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

I had these strings put on by my guitar tech and I was really disappointed. The tonal qaulity on things things is not very good in my opinion. I got so frustrated with having these strings on my guitar I took them off and put some D'addarios on and now I have better tone. I Play through a Peavey XXl Combo. I love DR strings don't get me wrong, just not these strings.

Beauty and a beast

By SmallTownGuitarist

from Augusta, KS

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

I can honestly say that I have been playing DR strings for 4 years and would never think of trying a different brand. With these you have a killer sound and even more killer looks. I have a white Ibanez that has this set of strings on it and it is definatly a attention grabber. A+ for DR!

These are beauties

By GryphonDS

from Rockaway Park,NY

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

These strings sure are beauties. The colored strings adds a unique flare to your guitar. I have the black beauties and the red devils on my schecter, these sound great. They last surprisingly long. the coating DR uses is superior. Ive had the smae strings on for a few months and there was no dirt buildup. I usually bought cheaper D'addarrio strings, but DR strings to me are are worth the price.

from Gilroy,CA

Comments about DR Strings Extra Life BKE-10 Black Beauties Medium Coated Electric Guitar Strings:

These Strings really are BEAUTIES! These Srtings got the looks, the life and the Tone!the only thing is that the color will start to fade off where your pick strikes it, not really a big deal.Don't be botherd if the color starts to fade or come off they will still retain their clarity, Tone, And Life!!!
