Black Coated Bass Guitar Strings on Round Core. The K3™ Coating is the first coating that players report,  "sounds as good or better than uncoated strings."  DR's new, remarkable, proprietary and patent pending K3™ Technology Coating is the first coating that makes no apologies and no excuses for not delivering sound equal to uncoated strings.  Players tell us that these strings have more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation then standard, uncoated strings.  Yet, they provide the same protection due to corrosion and perspiration as well as increased tone life that coated strings are known for.

Gauges: .045; .065; .085; .105; .125

Very excited about these strings and after trail and error have I settled finding them. Thanks 😊



If it works for Ryan Martinie it can work for me !!!!!!!


"I first heard what these strings sounded like when I heard MuDvAyNe a long time ago. When I first heard ""Dig"" and ""Not Falling"" I was like ""What kind of distortion does the bassist use, it's phenominal"". But then I really started listening and figured out that it wasn't any distortion pedal, it was his strings, and when I figured out what brand he used I immediately ran out and bought a set. When I put the strings on I was completely blown away. My other strings, that I have been using up until now, were nothing like this they would run out of life within about 1 or 2 weeks. These on the other hand retained the same tonal brilliance from the first day I put them on to 3 MONTHS later when I changed them. I play in a metal band and I abuse the strings with fast picking, insane slaps, and crazy power chords (yes I play chords on the bass), and these things still maintained their crunchy resonance. These strings are the only strings that I will be using for the rest of my musical career and if you like a bass tone that will shatter glass, BUY THESE STRINGS. Thanks DR.
