    Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Orange Bass SuperStrings Medium 5-String:

    I got these to replace old flatwounds, and wanted to add a bit of color. My fellow band members think they're "groovy." So far they have been reliable and consistent once they've broken in. The only bad thing is when I was stringing my bass, the coating scratched off in a couple of places on the bottom strings, even though I was being extra careful. I don't think it has affected the tone.

    Rediculousness!!!

    Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Orange Bass SuperStrings Medium 5-String:

    Possibly the best strings i have ever used, ever. i usually play punk rock, but i will indulge in some slap/funk. the bass i usually play is peavey ntb grind bxp 5 string, i couldnt seem to find any way to give my bass more pop. i bought these strings on a whim, and they completely changed my tone. they actually added punch to my sound. they are one of the main things that i use for my sound. i highly reccomend them. DR Neon coated strings are my first choice in strings.
    they will really get you noticed, and the coating is smooth, and hardly noticable. they also add a lot of punch to your sound
    they are very well made, they dont corrode, and they feel more comfortable than most coated strings
    i have had the same set on my bass for 6 months, and they havent gotten dull yet.

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Orange Bass SuperStrings Medium 5-String:

      I have these orange strings on my 5-string metallic navy blue Ibanez Soundgear, and the contrast of the bright orange against the the dark blue is visually stunning. I've received a lot of compliments, questions, and "concerns" about the appearance of the strings. This is something different and flashy that you can do for your bass to add a bit of flare, and it will draw attention. I've heard everything from, "That looks so cool!" to, "What possessed you to do that?" :) I like the appearance, the tone is good, and that is what matters. The strings work as advertised - black light reactive. I don't move around on stage that much, so these strings added stage presence to my performance because they glow under the black lights. Typical round wound string tone. Since the strings are coated, they will last longer than non-coated strings, so use these for practice, rehearsal, performance, jams, etc. I like the strings a lot, and I want to experiment with the different colors that are available.

            Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Orange Bass SuperStrings Medium 5-String:

            i just restrung my ibanez sr305dx using these strings. after going through three different string manufacturers, i think i have finally found the right string! i will admit, i bought them because i'm a total korn fanboy, and after finding out what kind of string fieldy uses, i had to at least try. they have a solid punch, bright highs while not losing any of the low end. i'm absolutely floored by the tones that i can get out of these things (not just korns!) and would recommend them to anyone wanting to brighten up the stage. trust me, they look just as cool as they sound, and cant wait to get them under a black light!
