Didn't quite favor them. Although they look great on my Fender, the sound of them changed the personality of the bass, not what I was used to. Also it's taking some time to get use to the coating that's on them. Sorry.

First time with the Black Beauties on my fretless. Very happy. I love the growl. It makes my bass sound between a electric and a acoustic bass.

When I don't feel like paying over Sixty dollars for Thomastik Infelds, I stick with DR black Beauties. Best bang for your buck!!!!!!!!!!

I have been using DR poly-coated strings for close to 2 years now, on a range of different basses. Great tone and great feel. If you're a finger player, and you sweat, you'll never have trouble gripping the strings.

About to try these the next time I am due a string change. Been using D'addario EXL220 for years. I hope these match up and will hold the brightness since they are coated. I go through strings pretty quick. I want them to stay bright but not tinny.

Really like the feel and the sound of these strings. Has the stainless steel sound with a much smother feel. Highly recommended.
