OVERVIEW

Vibrant strings that glow.

NEON is the second in DR's SuperStrings series. Super bright in daylight, and with stage lighting. DR's NEON strings are so bright in appearance "they look like they are on fire." DR's NEON strings shine brightly under stage lights, and are 100% black light active so they glow strongly under UV lighting. And DR's NEON sound as good as they look. As Joey Clemment from Selena Gomez said, "Yeah they look great, but they sound incredible!"

NEON is the first coated string to make no apologies. While NEON lasts as long as a coated string should (three to four times as long as uncoated strings) they sound as good, or better than uncoated strings.

K3 Coating Care
The K3 coating on EXTRA-life strings is designed for use with standard picks and fingers. The K3 coating can be damaged by scraping against metal. It is important that care be taken when stringing guitars and basses where the strings are passed through a metal block or bridge. Scraping can damage the coating.

Guages: 40-60-80-100.

    Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green Bass SuperStrings Light 4-String:

    I've been playing for a LONG time, 25+ years. I have tried just about EVERY string I could think of.
    My first pair of Neons was kind of as 'showy' for a Halloween show we played this past October. Little did I know they would also end up sounding EVEN BETTER than they looked, which really impressed the heck out of me because they looked incredible under the blacklights. These things have taken quite a beating, and yes the coating has flaked off a bit, but not nearly as much as would be expected considering the abuse they've taken. The set I just ordered is for my other bass. :)I'll never buy other strings again. DR NEONS forever. :)

      NEON HiDef Green Bass Strings Light 4-String

      By Marc Roberge

      from Calif. USA

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green Bass SuperStrings Light 4-String:

      They look cool. They're bright green. I scratched a little bit of the coating off in one spot
      near the winding on the capstan. This was accidentally during the install process. It made
      me wonder if it would scratch off easily while playing with a pick. I use finger-style 90%
      of the time. I've played a little bit with a pick but it hasn't removed the coating.
      Pay attention. As you open the holder there are instructions on the inside on how to prevent
      falling out of tune and intonation. If you have to clip the strings short be certain to crimp
      the end with pliers or the outer winding may slide off of the inner core of the string.

      I thought this was great advice and I had never seen the handy tips printed on the inside
      of packaging.

      Now I'm going to have to buy a black-light to see what THAT looks like.
      Seems good. Just trying this type out for the first time. Quality is the kind of thing that can be
      measured over time. And I just bought them. Time will tell.
      It was an average fair price for bass strings. Come on, they're BASS strings. That means
      they're like bridge cable and could last 20 years if you don't mind a very woofy, dull thud
      for tone. Personally I think it's a useful tone at times.

      Read an interview once with a punk-style bass player who said if and when he DOES change
      strings, he immediately gets hold of a big bag of french fries and rubs the oil, grease, and salt
      into the strings to "age" them.

      My main string!!!

      By jackbruce#1fan

      from yuba city, california

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green Bass SuperStrings Light 4-String:

      As the title say's these are my main string's!!! These are the best string's to help me get the sound i want(mostly everything, rock,funk,jazz,fusion,punk,prog,tap & slap,) & they look so great it's a WIN WIN, with these strings!!!
      I got the medium one's when they first came out, and they were great. I thought i would try some lights on my fender jaguar bass(hot rod red that is now glow in the dark lime green, same color as the strings). They gave the bass the exact sound i was going for!!! Great low end with great mid's and brilliant high's!!!
      The tone last for a good long time, but i noticed some small pieces of coating chipped off after a week or two, nothing big.
      Great tone that last for a long time!!!
