    I know they have black nylon bass strings but is there something like that for regular guitar? I know this is a bass forum but im not a member of any guitar forum so i figured id post it here.



    in that video the guy on the left ( i believe his name is matt ) has black strings on guitar. what are they, and were can i purchase them, and what tonal differences do these black strings have with normal strings?

    DR Black Beauties are the most common- Available from GC, Musicians Friend, Strings and Beyond, ect. Aurora also makes a black anodized string for guitar and bass. Tonally, they have little difference, though both the above are coated/plated strings which do feel different.
     
  4. Also, Roto now makes black coated strings called Nexus.

    Yeah, DR does a bunch of colours, not just black.

    http://www.stringthis.com/drcobast.html is one of the sites that carry the whole range, but there's a bunch of others.

    The hot pinks look good in the appropriate context. Haven't tried the others.

    The stealth black Ritter with pink strings is still my favorite bass on TB.
     
  9. Yup, from what I hear they are great strings too. Only come in four string packs right now, waiting for the fiver.
