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: 40-60-80-100-125.

    Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Light 5-String:

    I found a set of NEON yellow medium 5's. I put them on my Jazz bass and they've stayed there for almost 8 months now. I don't play with a pick ever, so the yellow coating has lasted, except for where there's fret contact. I was planning on switching the strings, but I can't bring myself to do it. Sometimes they surprise me with how good they sound and so I guess they're staying on there until the yellow comes off.

    Not the best strings for styles like Reggae or R&B, but with a little equalizer magic and knowing that tone is in your fingers, anything is possible. I doubt I'd ever buy these strings again, unless I can get them for the same price, which was more than half-price.

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Light 5-String:

      These strings are awesome. They have a great feel to them and don't feel sticky at all, even when playing in humid temperatures. And the glow they give off under a blacklight is simply amazing. Even without the blacklight, they just give any guitar a different look; one that will draw attention....
