    Best sounding, playing strings I have found for my Rickenbacker 4003!

    I own 10 bass guitars and use a variety of DR string models on all of them. One of my favorite DR sets is their Sunbeams, which I use on all of my short scale basses. I was looking for something with a coating to try on my 4003 and had read good things about these Black Beauty strings which I discovered are basically coated Sunbeams, just like the other DR coated strings like the Red Devils!Prior to swtitching over to these I had been running with DR Lo-Riders on my 4003 which I also use on my Fender Jazz Basses. Contrary to the nice top end bite I get from these on my 62 and 73 Jazz, I just wasn't getting the classic RIC tone I wanted out of the 4003 with LO-Riders installed, so this is why I decided to give these a try.I had been running with DR Red Devils on my Fender Jaguar and my Gretch DuoJet for a long time so I already knew that these coated DRs have a great tone, reduced fret clatter and easy on the fingers to boot, so I already knew there was a... 5/5 The Resident Gourmet (California) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Nice feel, excellent sound

    0 5/5 Jeff (POOLER, Gabon) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: DR Strings Bass Strings, Black Beauties - Extra-Life, Black-Coated (Electronics) These strings are great. I'm on my third set. I originally bought them because I heard they were long enough for my fanned fret Dingwall bass which needs longer strings to reach past the nut at the E. It turns out that these strings have excellent sound and really nice feel They sound great right out of the box and last a long time (as advertised.) am impresses enough that I just ordered a set of the light version for my 5 string Carvin.Be warned though.

    Unbelievable Strings

    I purchased a set of 4 for my bass in 1990. It was just a old Fender Pbass with stock pickups. The bass imediatly had a deeper sound and nicer feel. The strings rang longer and stayed in tune for outstanding periods of time. I had the medium-lights. Now for the pure comedy. The strings outlasted my bass. Yes that is right... the strings were still in good condition and still holding their tone for an entire gig in Jan 2006. 1 set of these lasted me 16years. My Pbass broke just beneath the neck in the body and I am finally going to give up the ghost and buy another set of strings for a bass... There is imediatly no doubt in my mind as to which set to buy. I went through 5 sets of strings in 3 years due to them shredding near joints and then these lasted me 16 YEARS... Value.. Sound... Tone... Tunning... I had bandmates tell me to replace my strings since they knew how old they were and then I would hand my bass over and say play.. then they would say.. um nevermind.. by God... 5/5 Mac75 "Cp" (Troy MI) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dean Markley Blue Steel 4-String ML 2674 Bass Guitar Strings (.045-.105) (Electronics) I purchased a set of 4 for my bass in 1990.
