As a music student, I do quite a bit of playing every day, and I must say that the DR Neon Green guitar strings (or any of their colors, for that matter), are pretty much as awesome as they look (which is pretty awesome).These strings glow under a blacklight, and look pretty darn good under regular stage lighting, too. Of course they'll flake after a lot of hard playing, but this really only occurs where you're pick/fingers are striking the strings. Overall I'd say that the coating is on there pretty well, especially on the low strings.There's no discernible difference in sound quality between the Neons and other DR strings (which always sound great), such as the DDTs or the Pure Blues. You can obviously feel the difference between a non-coated plain string and a coated Neon string, but as far as I can tell, there's no adverse affect on the sound of the instrument. If anything, I'd say the coating helps me move around the guitar, adding just the amount of traction without affecting my facility.These may not be for everyone, but if you're looking for something that's gonna turn heads at gigs (it definitely does) and doesn't affect the sound of your axe (it doesn't), then the DR Neons are the way to go.

My band bought sets of these strings in various colors for a Halloween block party we were performing for. They definitely look cool under a black light (especially the green), but they're not particularly good strings. The coating is somewhat uneven and starts to wear off quickly, but somehow simultaneously feels very thick and makes the strings feel slick under the fingers. I found myself fumbling around the fretboard and sliding past notes which is usually not a problem with other strings. The sound also leaves something to be desired; especially with the acoustic strings I found them very tinny sounding. I'll give them 3 stars because they did look cool and people commented on them, but the sound deficiencies won't let me rate them any higher. Now that Halloween is over I can't wait to get these off my guitars and put my preferred strings back on as soon as possible.

Horrible!

By Christopher Jackson

from Virginia

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

I bought these strings for fun just to see how it would look on my guitar. I expected these strings not to be high quality but, wow, these strings are just HORRIBLE! I strung up my guitar and in less than 15 minutes of moderate playing (I estimate about 30% of) the coating of the unwound strings flaked off onto my guitar. Not only does this look bad but, more importantly, seriously diminishes playability. My fingers then slide over rough, flaking strings. Ouch! Cute idea...terrible execution!
Cute idea. Looks nice....(before playing).

Value, with any product, is relative to quality. At $12 a set the value is not good. Even if they were $2 a set it would not be a good value because of the poor quality. I have purchased other string sets for as low as $4 that were much better.

These Strings are just for looks

By Adan Jimenez

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

If you want to look good on stage for one perfromance the'll do the job
I've been playing guitar for about 4 years i like to play upbeat mexi-ska and skacore and after some hard badass strummin the paint starts flaking off and you end up with patches of green on your strings which looks disgusting. if you want them for about 2 gigs get em but these strings aren't for me!

        These sound good and have a nice color. The only issue I have is the color is easy to flick off with a pick on the 1st 2nd and third string. But the 4 th 5th and sixth string hold an amazing color.

        Do NOT buy these strings! I got some for christmas and as soon I put them on and started playing the coating started coming off.They dont feel right(because the coating comes off)and makes it more difficult to play you guitar. The color or guage does not matter, they're all terrible.

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

        I've been playing guitar for around 8 years. I have played with DR's for about 6 of them, Mainly use DR Tight Fits 10-52 and Addicted to the DR DDT's. But these strings are not good when it comes to playability. It makes a great vanity to a dark finished guitar, like my Jackson RR in solid black, adds a head turning look but the description on the back is full of S**t. The paint started chipping off on the first day. Do not buy! But DR strings are the best strings just not the new neon series.

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

        I tried these strings out this last week. I normally use the "dimebag" .10's, have for years. Didn't think I would find a string to compare. But, after being drawn in by the "Green Hand" I must say that I was wrong. Much less tension in the strings, I was really overbending at first. These sound fantastic, look fantastic, and are better than the "Dimebag" strings. These strings have increased my enjoyment in playing. The only problem was one of my picks developed a slight burr on the leading edge and started to take off the coating. Now I have also changed picks and the way I pick for the better. Much cleaner and articulate. I did have to set up my guitar with these strings, no biggie. Actually raised my action a hair and increased the tone and clarity of my Baby! Buy and enjoy! I know I will!!

          I have tried a multitude of various strings. These DR strings are great. I have the Multi color; Yellow; Orange; Green and the Black Beauty ones. They perform great on my Gibsons; Epiphones and Ovation guitars. I use them on acoustic; acoustic electric and semi-solid guitars - all with equal positive results.

                First of all, these strings are way too expensive. Do not get fooled by the description on the back. They don't pick up sound good at all, it is almost impossible to do pinch harmonics on the lower strings, fast strumming just doesn't feel right at all, and the high strings broke after a week. To all heavy metal guitarists PLEASE save your $10 These are horrible!!!!

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

                Let's face it - these are gimmick strings, plain and simple. Of course, if you're a performer and your guitar is plain and simple - these strings could add a needed bit of flash. Everyone who has seen the on my guitar have commented about the 'coolness' of them - and if you use black lights on stage any at all they light up like they had LEDs wired into the ends. I've not had them very long, and I don't play this guitar more than recreationally, but apart from the inital install, I haven't had any coating degradation yet (mind you, the headstock was covered with flecks of green after winding these things on the tuners). Some people may not like the coating - it is nothing like the coating on the Elixir strings - it almost feels like vinyl, and even I notice a slight drag on my fingers as I slide them up and down the fretboard. I'm also not sure why this set is almost half the cost of the lighter gauge set - not that I mind, I generally play medium gauge anyway.

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

                Well I saw these strings and thought it might be fun to try them out. So I put the strings on my guitar and as I was tuning up (mind you I have not broken a string while tuning up in 7 years) the high E snapped. The strings feel rough to my finger tips, I usually use Daddario Pro steels and these are MUCH harsher on the finger tips. I will give them some credit though, they look good, and they sound good when plugged into an amp.

                I bought my first set of neons about a month ago. I thought what the hell I'll try these bad boys out because the neon hand on the front cover lured me in. I put them on and was blown away with how bright they are! Even though they are black light active, even with out a black light they still catch your eye. When I tuned them up they were very loud acoustically not even plugged in. I was impressed and as soon as I plugged my guitar in the strings came to life. I tried there old coating before and wasn't to impressed with the sound quality. But they really hit it right with these strings. Very clear and not muffled out in any way. I don't understand how anyone can hate these strings or have any peeling right of the bat. I bought two sets for my friends to try out to and they love them as much as I do.

                My wife got these as a Christmas gift for my 12 yr old son.I put hem on his Strat I wasn't expecting much thought it was a cheap gimik.Once they were on I was shocked they felt and sounded like regular string. I've been playing about 27yrs and have tried coated strings once before but didn't like the feel or sound at all.Since then been using them for about 2 weeks with very light wear on the hi E but would have replaced my regular strings after 1 week usually after 3 gigs.I play really hard fast blues. Anyway great strings will have to get another set my son want's his guitar back.
