      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Medium 4-String:

      I bought this set 6 months ago just to try them out. Yes. 6 Months. My opinion is: They're GREAT!

      I had never played coated strings before, but loved the set of DR nickel plated Lo-Riders I had on, and I chose DR NEONs due to my positive experience with those Lo-Riders.

      The Neons look just fantastic! But you buy strings for the sound, and these NEONs sound superb! Solid Punchy Meaty Mids. Plenty of top end brightness and sparkle without the annoying tin can high end zing such as Rotosounds have. NEONS have something quite a few roundrounds lack, and that is a vibrantly smooth thick full round bottom.

      The coating is quite slick to the touch at first. That makes it very easy to slide around the neck, but they squeak! The squeak doesn't come through the p'ups to your amp, and goes away after being played in. DR's K3 coating DOES cut down on roundwound string screech BIGTIME! It took me two weeks of playing an hour or more everyday to get the NEONs 'played in' and hold tune. NEONs are a very comfortable string to play.

      DR NEONs are VERY well balanced. Tone is both superb and cosistent string-to-string. They last a long LONG time. Six months for me vs 2-3 months for uncoated roundwounds. The coating does begin to wear off over time especially if you play with a pick very much, however that doesn't alter the tone at all.

      I will buy these again and recommend them highly.

      Cool

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Medium 4-String:

      I've always liked DR strings for my basses. Very good quality and tone. The look of these are awesome. I strap a 4 foot blacklight to my mic stand with some velcro, and they look great against a black bass with pao ferro fingerboard.

      By Charles Betz

      from California

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Medium 4-String:

      First time use but happy with them right now.
      First time I have played these. Coating makes a difference for sure.
      So far, so good..
      A bit steep but still affordable.Will see how they work out.

      DR Strings Neon Phosphorescent Yellow Medium 4 Str

      By Robert Vidrine (VEE)

      from Orange Texas

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Medium 4-String:

      DR Strings Neon Phosphorescent Yellow Medium 4 String Bass StringsI purchased a set of these string to try them. We play in some dark venues and they light up to help see the strings better. what i really like is the coating. It is very humid in east texas and a lot of persperation too so the coating keeps the strings from getting damaged by sweat and moisture. just clean off and go again. Very pleased, need to buy a couple more sets of them..very cool on my all black Ibanez Bass.

      These strings are SICK!!!

      Ask me a question

      Comments about DR Strings NEON Hi-Def Yellow Bass SuperStrings Medium 4-String:

      The DR NEON Strings are awesome! I put a set of the Yellows on my black cherry finish bass and BOOM!! These things pop!!! Striking to look at! Without even using a black light, these strings look awesome! The color is smooth and consistant throughout the length of strings. And the sound, the sweet sound these strings make. This was my first set of DR Strings, and I am TOTALLY sold! These strings were a definate upgrade! Under a black light they appear to be 'electric' or 'powered'. I'm already planning on getting a set of NEON Orange for my other bass. Get these strings!!!! NOW!!!!
