I heard about these strings from musicman1066 and I like them but i bought red and neon green in .09 and the high e snapped while I was doing a full step bend. I also bought .10 in black and they're good but the low e and a strings sound dead now after a few weeks of playing. Thy are good strings but the color fades of where you picks pretty fast and on the first 3 string where the strings meet the frets. If you want a show guitar get these otherwise i'd say get another pair

I have been a professional musician for 30+ years, so I've used A LOT of different types of strings. I thought I'd give these Dr's a try as an alternative to ELIXIRS. Long story short, Buy the ELixirs.
The DRs are very rough feeling which binds your fingers up. Also, my first set lasted 7 sets before the 1st string broke. On break I replaced the set with Elixirs and was totally blown away by the difference in volume and tone. Then DRs made my rig sound like there was a blanket thrown over it. We work hard searching for great tone, don't throw that away with strings that don't translate your guitars voice!
Buy the Elixirs if you're thinking about coated strings - you'll never look back.

        I use this guitar all the time (Taylor) and only after three days these things lost their tone...turned flat, not worth the extra money.

          Comments about DR Strings SIE-10 Silver Stars Coated Medium Electric Guitar Strings:

          I discovered DR strings several years ago when I was living in Brazil and fell in love with them when I played them. Smooth and silky to the touch with great long lasting tone. I mainly play rhythm guitar and the smoothness/silkiness of the strings make it very easy to change chord positions. In all the years I've been using DRs, I've never had a problem with any of the strings, plus they really do last longer than conventional strings (at least double the life). Excellent strings.

            For 2.99 they were worth a try. A set lasted almost all of my 1.5 hr band practice before I started noticing the "deadness" of the strings. Best as a back up pack of string for a one time shot befor you put real strings on.

                      Bought several sets when they were on sale. Put a set on my telecaster and low E was dead. First time in 30 plus yrs this has happened. I hope I don't run into this problem with the rest. They sound ok. DR is sending a replacement.

                          I'm a string "melter" (strings can start to corrode when I'm stringing the guitar). These strings tune fast, stay in tune, have great tone on my LP and PRS guitars, look great, and last long. Yeah, they're more pricey, but you get what you pay for.
