I did not want to sink 50$ into a set of strings saw these for 19 and they are pretty good. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 23, 2014

    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?)

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 Electric Bass Strings, 45-105, 2674, Medium Light (Electronics) I purchased a set of 4 for my bass in 1990.

    Dean Markley Blue Steel from KMC Music and Amazon, Great Price, Fast Shipping way better than my local music store!

    0 5/5 carl zahrndt - See all my reviews This review is from: Dean Markley Blue Steel Electric Bass Strings, 50-105, 2676, Medium (Electronics) What can I say they are dean markley blue steel. However I live in a small Podunk town so my local music store doesn't even carry this brand and the cheapest they carry is almost $30. I am used to Sarasota Florida where we had a Sam Ash but even there they costed more. AS FOR THE STRINGS hey they are all a preference some folks like GHS Boomers, some like the Ernie Ball, and those are good. HOWEVER I find that the cryogenically treated nickel 1 sounds better. Very clear and a lot of punch, bone rattling bass. It seems to go right through you. 2 I find that they have a nice smooth feel when playing. 3 They last longer. in Florida strings would rust up from the humidity. AS FOR THE PLACE THEY CAME FROM: Great! was about $16 and free shipping. arrived in a few days. I will always get my stings here now. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 26, 2014

    Second to None, Best of the Best

    Short version: These strings are incredible. Why haven't you bought them yet?Long version:Oh my goodness, wow. I absolutely love these strings. I even love how they have red cloth wrapping on the end of the string up by the headstock. The tone of these strings? To die for. These are the best bass strings I have ever used.Tone:Some words to describe the tone are as follows: biting, growling, aggressive, articulate, and bright. These strings were made for players who want to be heard, who want to cut through the mix. These strings have great low end, but that's not the impressive part. What's so impressive about these strings is that when a note is played, the combination of midrange and high harmonics give the tone a metallic, almost piano-like quality. Good for slap bass? Goodness yes.Versatility:These strings may be bright and audacious, but they can also be tamed by simply turning down the tone knob... 5/5 Adam Hilliard - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Amazon Customer (Athens, AL United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Rotosound RS66LF Swing Bass 66 Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings (45 65 85 105) (Electronics) I'm just a rank amateur and an old geezer, but I've been looking for the right string to give me that traditional P bass tone, not too muddy or too bright. I've played flat wound strings for years, but lately my ears have heard their tone as muddy and when I tried turning my tone up on either the guitar or amp to get more clarity the G string would ring too bright, even when using foam at my bridge. So after reading reviews I decided to give these a try. Perfect tone and balance on all strings. After playing flats for so long I'm having to be more disciplined to avoid string squeak, but that's actually a good thing and my playing and technique have improved as a result. Getting the tone I want is certainly worth the effort. My old bass guitar never sounded better.Trying different strings to get the tone you want is far cheaper than buying a new bass. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 13, 2014

This review is from: Rotosound RS66LF Swing Bass 66 Stainless Steel Bass Guitar Strings (45 65 85 105) (Electronics) When I first started playing ahem cough years ago, I would try a different brand almost every time I changed strings.I'd knew that some of my favourite players (like JJ Burnel from the Stranglers) used Rotosounds but I mistakenly thought that they were way out of my price range.When I discovered that they were actually cheaper than most of the other brands I had tried, I picked up a set and was blown away. They feel great, play great and last for a very, very long time.I normally play punky/indie sort of stuff on Fender Precision and Jazz basses (I used to use flats on the Jazz but I switched to the 66s on that too).Quality *****Sound *****Durability *****Price *****I don't even consider other strings anymore -- nice to have one no-brainer in my life. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 8, 2013
