DR Strings

Electric strings for those who want to look and sound electric as well.

Gauges: 10, 13, 17, 26, 36, 46.

DR Strings NEONs™ are super bright color-coated strings that sound clear, bright and musical. These Multi-Color Medium Electrics are an excellent idea for those learning to play or just wanting to add pizazz to their rig. It's easy for players to fall in love with the bright color that matches their remarkable sound. Super bright in daylight and under stage lighting, DR’ Strings NEONs are 100% black light active and glow strongly under UV lighting. These strings will last you as long as a coated string should (three to four times as long as uncoated strings) maintaining a sound that is not only good, but better than top-quality uncoated strings.

        Comments about DR Strings Hi-Def NEON Multi-Color Coated Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        The strings look really cool (obviously) but the sixth string sounds too dampened. On an undistorted guitar, it sounds flat and is drowned out by all the others. The other strings sound really good and they are very easy to maneuver on but the one issue is too major for me to want to continue using them. I should note that I bought heavy strings that are not available on Musicians Friend, maybe the mediums are better.

        Comments about DR Strings Hi-Def NEON Multi-Color Coated Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        Good Colouring and sound really very good. Colour did fade but I'm a heavy player so was not surprised. Very bright and noticeable, garner good comments from crowds/other musicians out playing around.

        Would also like to say that Musician's Friend's international shipping was very quick and supplied everything in great condition. Overall good experience

        Comments about DR Strings Hi-Def NEON Multi-Color Coated Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        I play in a variety band that covers a wide spectrum of Rock and Country. These strings look really cool. I strung them on a Seymour Duncan loaded JT220D LP-style ax thru a vintage brown-face Deluxe. The tone and sustain were surpisingly good...and they felt great on the fingers! The color eventually wears off at the pick-strike area but held up nicely during the entire gig. The sustain lasts well beyond. If you want to add a little pizzaz to your show, give 'em a try.

        Comments about DR Strings Hi-Def NEON Multi-Color Coated Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

        These have a nice bright sound and consistant. The lab tests say that they will last roughly 11,000 pick strikes in the same place before the coating goes.

        it's my first coated string set and I honestly just bought 3 packs of these to stand out and an excuse to get a black light to have a light show to make playing guitar at night more fun. What to expect is the same if not more grip than what you are used to which DR is known for like anyone who has ever played Dimebag Darrell DR Strings will know what I'm talking about. The sound is similar to Ernie Ball slinky strings for the highs with a bit of D'Addario on the lows, so a very balanced set. These give one of the smoothest vibrattos I've had. I play with scalloped fretboards so I know a good bend when I see it. I was honestly hesitant about buying coated strings the price is almost double in stores as opposed to what we're used to but I won't look back on these. People often complain about them sounding very plastic like but not these.

        Other than the coating coming off the strings there's really no cons to these. I mean it's a given it will happen, I mean we're not bassists I know lots of guys who change strings weekly or bi-monthly. But big deal I'd buy them again. I mean how metal is it that I got a pink and a purple string hahah.. how has no one reviewed these?
