DR Black Beautie Coated 45-105 Bass BKB-45

**PLEASE NOTE** The image above has been used for visual purposes only. The gauge available is listed in the title above and in the product description below.

The K3™ coating is the first coating that players report, “sounds as good or better than uncoated strings.” DR’s new, emarkable, 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 say that these strings have more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation than 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. DR Handmade Strings always combine old fashioned craftsmanship with only the very finest American made materials.

DR Handmade Strings, brainchild of Al Dronge, founder of Guild Guitars and passed onto his son Mark Dronge, is a company that takes pride in producing handmade strings on a big scale in a market where machines are increasingly more prominent.  DR Handmade Strings consider handcrafted strings, American made, with American materials often more accurate and consistent than machine made and also re-established the importance of round core strength.  The DR ZEBRA strings which were the first out of the factory are made alternating between phosphor bronze and nickel plated steel windings.  Dr Handmade Strings introduced the first colour coated strings in 2001 advancing to NEON coating strings in 2010.  The latest DR DDT drop down tuning sets are optimized for low tuning retaining tuning, stability and tension.

I have used DR before and they are excellent strings. They are a little on the pricey side but they are handmade...
