      I use Elixir strings religously but wanted to experiment with other brands and tried the Cool Blues. They sounded great when I strung up the guitar but after a day or two, very quickly rusted out over the course of a few hour playing session. They became dull and lifeless in no time. Very disappointing as I would have expected this issue with non-coated strings and not coated strings.

                    I really wanted to like these strings, they look great. They didn't sound good on my Strat. They didn't "feel" right either. To be fair, that may be partly due to the fact they were 9's and I ususally use 10's on my Strat.

                        They sounded dull from the second I put them on. After 2 practice sessions, the color was almost gone from part of the strings. I use DR Tite Fits regularly, so I didn't expect to be this disappointed in DR Strings. I went back to Tite Fits after 2 days.

                          The high E broke before I could get it tuned! I would not waste my time with these even if they were free.

                                I just got these bad boys today and put them on my guitar. The guy below is right about how they sound lifeless. But, when I used them with my little tiny 15W amp and DanElectro Metal. They came straight to life with some of the most beautiful bends ever.
