DR NEONs are super bright color coated strings that sound clear, bright and musical. Players love the bright NEON colors and their remarkable sound. Super bright in daylight and under stage lighting, DR's NEON 100% black light active and glow strongly under UV lighting. NEONs are the first coated string to make no apologies. While NEONs last 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. These ones are red, guage .045 - .125 for 5-string electric bass.

Comments about DR Strings Hi-Def NEON Red Coated Medium 5-String (45-125) Bass Guitar Strings:
If you're going for looks, these are definitely the strings you wanna invest in. However, the overall tone is very flat and non-twangy sounding. At first, they sound bright and lively, but die literally after 2 weeks to a month. I, like many others, favor slapping as a technique, which may have resulted in the short life of the strings, but nevertheless, the strings went dead much too quickly (the factory strings that were on my five string previously were put on my four string July of last year and still sound great- much better than the DR Neon's). The color also stripped off in various areas of the strings which was upsetting. (Side note: they look orange under the black light, but look amazing anyways).
