Call me a mainstream pussy, but I've always used Dean Markley Blue Steel. They last a long time, give a great sound, and for the quality are quite cheap in price.

I second Def's vote for DR, they seem to last longer and have better tone. As for any coated strings. . .the least sucky tend to be black diamonds. Either way the coating always wears off and of course they aren't that great to begin with, on acoustics coated strings tend to be okay though.

Eh, just give them a try, if they don't work out. . . you are only out like what. . . . 12 dollars. . . I mean seriously it's not like the biggest financial risk in the world, you may end up with something you like better then the financial risk is only like 6 dollars.

Just the other day, my friend found black(yes, black colored) strings for guitar. Do these exist for bass?

It would be pretty cool to use those, since my bass has black knobs, bridge, top, tuners and obviously pickups(with a dark brown body though).

By the way, forgot you are talking about bass strings. . . Forget my comment about it not costing much. . .

Well, I don't know how long they would last with you, but I use DR Black Beauties. They have a black coating that help them last longer. Although they start turning siver where you fingers hit the string. (or pick.)
