    Hi,

    can anyone describe the tension of DR Black Beauties? I've heard that the Black Beauties should be pretty low tension, is this right?
     
  2. I believe I remember my set being pretty low tesion.

    Got my dr black beauties (045-105) today. Great sound but i find the tension of the e-string to low (in comparison to the other strings). Do they sell single e-strings?
     
  4. I think they basically are coated Hi-Beams, which you might've tried? Bootzillas are coated Lo-Riders to my knowledge.

    I had Red DEvils and they were really really taught.

    As Carl Anton said it's just coated Hi Beams. Which are very low tension wise. :) I don't know if the coating should do anything to the tension, I don't think it should make a difference.

    Btw, thumbs up to danish people on the board. :p
