DR's EXTRA-Life strings offer players a superior coated string without sacrificing the crisp tone, clarity, and volume of traditional DR HandMade strings. EXTRA-Life is a super thin adveanced .0003" coating on the plain strings and on the wrap wire.

BLACK BEAUTIES™ Black Colored Electric Guitar Strings aren’t just about the sleek and sophisticated look. They feature a hexagonal core wire and a nickel-plated steel wrap wire to maintain brightness and feel. All strings in the set are coated with a jet-black version of DR’s K3™ ultra-hard coating, delivering longevity, more projection, fewer unwanted overtones, and outstanding clarity and articulation.

K3™ Coated applied to the wrap wire is extra hard to maintain string brightness while extending life

The coating eliminates unwanted overtones, helping projection, clarity and articulation

The all-black color creates a modern, aggressive and distinctive look
