The HandMade String™ is now The HandMade COATED String™! DR HandMade Strings, makers of the world's finest handmade guitar and bass strings, now combines the latest wire technology with old-fashioned craftsmanship.
DR's EXTRA-Life™ is the world's finest coated string. EXTRA-Life™ has a super thin advanced .0003" coating on the plain strings and on the wrap wire. The wrap wire is coated before the string is wound. The 1st and 2nd plain strings are coated. This coating includes a corrosion inhibiting lacquer for extra protection against damaging substances such as perspiration, dirt, humidity and "acid hands".
DR's EXTRA-Life™ strings offer players a superior coated string without sacrificing the crisp tone, clarity, and volume of traditional DR HandMade Strings.
Black Beauties™ have a black coating that make every guitar look great!
