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

I absolutely love the coating on these strings and the way they feel, however the sound quality is lacking hard in the upper register. Low end is fine and sounds good, but these strings are more dead new then a set of strings I havent changed in months.

I would reccomend these for a show under a black light, or a in a club/themed concert.

DR Neon Strings

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

Overall these strings not only look cool, they feel great and their sustain and tone qualities are second to none. The next set I stall will be stretched more to hopefully avoid some slight tuning issues I've experienced. Which brings me to my next point or suggestion. DR should DEFINATELY consider offering these strings in all gauges and colors in an individual string. I alwats carry an extra set of strings and in addition I have some extra G - B & high E's in the guitar case in the event I break one. It would be nice to have the availabilty of replacing a broken NEON string with another NEON string. So offer them too as SINGLES.
I recently purchased 3 sets of DR Neon's - orange, yellow and green. My reason to try them was my vision is failing. Having a more visible string would; at times, be a benefit. I put the yellow ones a 335 and the orange on my '58 Les Paul. The green will go on one of my Strats; but they are still in the package. I was actually quite amazed at the tonal quality and the sustain. The colors are something to get used to, but are very cool. They felt a bit odd at first, but I am liking them more and more.
The quality is very good. I feel the sustain is outstanding.
My only concern is the durabilty. I believe some of the coating is begining to come off the high E and B string. They have been on for only a week.
I did notice that initially, I had difficulty keeping them in tune where as with other standard steel strings I never had issues. It could be because I didn't stretch them as much as I stretch standard strings. I did not want to break one since I had no extras to match.
I think the DR Neons are great strings. The sustain and tone are as good or better than any other string I have ever played. Also now that I am getting more familar with it, the feel is actually really nice.

coated?!?

By wellinever!

from new england

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

DR Strings Neon Phosphorescent Yellow Guitar Strings MediumI have used coated strings in the past and never enjoyed them, they never felt right and I've always hated the tone...... Then someone bought me these strings, I don't remember weather it was a holiday gift or birthday or what... I put them aside because like I said I haven't enjoyed my experience with coated strings in the past. A few weeks ago, I was broke and broke a string so I replaced it with the only strings I had, the tone of that string was very different from the others so I decided to change them all. I have yet to have a problem with these strings. I really dig the tone and of course the eye-popping color looks pretty bad-***, erm excuse me uh... bad-butt.To sum it up, I'd say these are the perfect coated strings for the "non-coated string" guitarist!!

coating comes off immediately

By walt-0FWt1

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

I had read poor reviews of DR strings in the past, but thought I'd try these new ones because (I admit it) the color looked cool and the company claimed to have a new process for keeping the coating on the string. However, when I ordered these, the coating came off immediately on the unwound strings. Not only that, but the one of the unwound strings was only outputing through the pickup of the guitar at about 50% of the output of the other strings! Weird. Musician's Friend sent a replacement set without any problem, but the unwound strings in that set had the same problem. So, while Musicians' Friend was very cool about doing the exchanges, I have to recommend that everyone avoid DR strings.

Good strings, but broke after a week?

By David-RrntZ

from San Diego, CA

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

These strings look great on my Ibanez SA series, and sound great too. The problem I have with them is that the coating, which the ad and the box said was very durable, started to chip off almost as soon as i started playing them. Also, the high E string broke after less than a week of playing, after i bent it up half a step. Overall, pretty strings, just not as durable as DR advertises.
