I bought them strictly for my back-up guitar, and was just curious. They were a little thicker than my normal strings, and I had to adjust the action on the bridge. However, once tuned, they had a nice rich tone, and the coating felt good on my fingers. Held a tune for days without major stretching, and I would even recommend these for daily use! Plus, the green looks wicked.

I bought this after reading some reviews and seeing them on youtube clips. If you like the fact that they will glow in the dark under black light, then by all means get them. However, if you are a serious guitar player that cares about his tone and playability of his guitar, then please stay away from these. To me, they feel like I'm playing nylon strings..yah, nylon I said!. Even that would be bearable if they only didn't totally kill my tone. Just trying to save you some money.

About Me Experienced

Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green SuperStrings Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I bought a set of these to outfit a rescue/rebuild guitar. They worked very well with the color of the guitar - even if I didn't use them under UV lights. Didn't notice a major problem with tone either (using a h-s-s pickup config), and they triggered my GK2 just fine as well. And, as they're coated strings, they play fairly comfortable as well.

BUT -- the coating is the Achilles heel - it didn't take long at all for the coating by the pickups to begin flaking off on the non-wound strings (mainly the E). When you buy them for looks, that's not a plus...

I once saw a guitar in the local music shop that had what appeared to be anodized strings -- the green color was chemically added to the strings. Sure, they didn't glow in UV lights, but that was what I really was looking for. Never found them though, and had to settle for these...

TERRIBLE... definately NOT worth the money

Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green SuperStrings Light Electric Guitar Strings:

I bought 2 sets just specifically for a Halloween gig & amp; from the GET GO - they sucked first of all they WERE more expensive but I see have went on "sale" now that Halloween is over The first set opened them up strung up the first high e & a lot of slippage due to the coating - when winding them up & after I got them all on started LIGHTLY stretching them out a little & PING high e- broke! Then after I fixed that problem plugged in they have TERRIBLE TONE just awful unless you were playing Jazz or something just terrible OK then @ the gig they didnt stay in tune for CRAP played 3 sets about an hour each tuned twice before we started & once each set & once each break between sets !! Nothing makes me MADDER than this & the coating started FLAKING off almost immediately! After one gig they look terrible & really didnt look that great to begin with I was really looking for that WOW factor for our Halloween gig with black lights & special Halloween effects but the only WOW factor I got was what a waste of $24 for 2 sets ! These things are CRAP! WOW what a mistake!

Good idea, but......

By Casey Cherry

from Illinois

Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green SuperStrings Light Electric Guitar Strings:

Overall, these strings played well, very similar to the Elixirs that I normally use. Held their tuning and tone well(They also looked pretty cool under the stage lights, I have to admit).
Herein lies the rub........the nice day-glo green coating lasted 1 practice session and 1 gig before it chipped away over the pickups, and the strings got nasty almost immediately. For the price, I will be going straight back to the Elixirs. Sorry DR, nice try.

By the dude-hUTIq

from georgetown pa

Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green SuperStrings Light Electric Guitar Strings:

good tone for about a week and then they sound dull its all caused by the coating being too thick...only really good for drop tuning not good with single coils either if you buy them buy at least two packs...

Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green SuperStrings Light Electric Guitar Strings:

These look awesome on my white Shecter Hellraiser C-1. But they do seem to lack the tone u might want. to me they sound dull and took away that bite that i like. but this my own opinion they look great but u pay the price in the sound.

Great for my students too!

By MesaProphet

Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Green SuperStrings Light Electric Guitar Strings:

Not only do they sound good, but also don't corrode, they look cool, and anything that glows under a black light that gets my students to practice more is awesome! They feel a little awkward at first because of the coasting, but just ignore it. It is in every since of the word AWESOME!
