    How about posting some pictures of your basses strung with Black Beauties, Red Devils, or Peackock Blues?
     
  2. What next?? Post your D'Addario strung basses??
     
  3. Man, If the guy want to see the effect of coloured strings on a bass, he's right to ask isn't it?

    i plan on joining this club next saturday with some black beauties
     
  15. Don't the color-coated strings wear on maple fretboards?

    If so... I'll avoid those.

    I can't say enough however about all of the standard DR strings.

    Really, really long lasting strings. They sound "new" for a couple of months and once they deaden a bit, have an entirely sweeter ring.

    :eek: Amazing. Such a beautiful bass.

    Me too, that's why I made this thread. :D I think some Black Beauties on my Essex '75 in 3TS would look incredible.

    Hey, do they have or will they make six-string color-coated strings. I'd like to see what some of those red ones would look like on my 6-string which is a reddish-orange finish over quilted maple.

    Oh well...I know that's not what this thread is really about.

    i'm thinking about putting black beauties on my upcoming fretless if the nickle lo-riders don't knock my socks off.
