Item Description

"These acoustics are louder than uncoated strings." The K3 coating is the first coating that players report “sounds as good, or better, than uncoated strings”. Players tell us Dragon Skin strings have more volume, less unwanted overtones, greater clarity and articulation that standard, uncoated strings. All 6 strings are protected against then elements, and feature K3 coated brass- plated steel strings for greater tonal balance from top to bottom.

Warm and long lasting
I compared these with Elixir Phosphor Bronze and D'Addario EXP which are two of the most popular coated strings. They are noticeably warmer than both, especially Elixirs with much less complexity in higher harmonics. Coating is thin and doesn't feel very different than uncoated strings. I recommend getting these to tame a bright acoustic. On a warm acoustic they may sound too muddy.
Proswarm sounding, long lasting, feel good
Consmay be too warm on a wrong guitar

Nice tone, but not so much on reliability
I bought two sets of these and went through both sets in a month. The tone these strings had when I put my first set on was fantastic! Three days later, my D string broke. So I tapped into my second set to get the D string then my A string gave out the next day. Dipped into the new set and the next week the B and G were gone! I'm known to have a heavy hand when it comes to playing, but I couldn't keep these DRs on my guitar long enough to enjoy the great tone. Thought maybe my guitar was the problem, but I haven't broken a single Lifespan Martin yet. I use DR strings on all my electrics, but sadly I couldn't recommend these. Just my experience.
ProsGreat tone
ConsStrength and reliability

DR Dragonskin Medium gauge 13-56
I was actually quite surprised at how loud and balanced these strings were.... but I was even more surprised at how low tension they must be. My usual string of choice for my Martin are Elixir PB Nanowebs and also will use the new Martin SP Lifespans. In comparison, I get no string buzz with the Elixirs, minor buzzing with the Martin SP and an incredible amount with the Dragonskins. I would really need to do a whole new set up just to us use these strings.... so, on that note, I think I will just pass on these next time! But if you want a string that's easy on the fingers or you have a vintage guitar that you don't want to add any additonal stress to the neck, then these would be the right choice.
