DR Strings BKB545 Details

The DR BKB5-45 Black Beauties provide the protection due to corrosion and perspiration as well as increased tone life that coated strings are known for.

As founder Mark Dronge says, each and every DR string is the result of a truly hands-on design and human contact. Since 1989, DR has been blending the best of old-fashioned handmade craftsmanship with cutting-edge materials for string coatings. That commitment to handmade quality is what has brought numerous world-class bassists and guitarists to use only DR strings - from Victor Wooten to Phish's Trey Anastasio - and numerous other artists across musical genres. All of them have come to love the reliable tone - acoustic or electric - you can expect in the handcrafted strings from DR.

Quality tone and durability
With the DR Black Beauties bass strings, you'll snag the signature crisp tone, clarity, and volume of DR's traditional handmade strings. Yet you'll get the added bonus of DR's super-thin coating on the plain strings and on the wrap wire, which extends the life of your favorite strings. And just as the name suggests, DR Black Beauties sport a stealth-style black coating.
